WEST PALM BEACH — Tired of driving the “same old, same old” but not ready to buy a new car and not interested in a long-term lease?
If you’re fickle when it comes to figuring out what kind of ride makes you smile because you like to switch it up, Florida Fine Cars has the key to your dreams.
Welcome to AmeriDrive, a user-friendly car subscription service the allows members to drive a vehicle for seven days or longer, then pick out something new and hit the road again.
With AmeriDrive, motorists simply download an app to their phone, choose a car, decide how long to keep it and when they will pick it up. The service launched on July 1, 2018.
“Buying a car should be simple, but it is instead often seen as stressful and a hassle,” said Ramin Farahmand, co-owner of Florida Fine Cars, the parent company of AmeriDrive. “People need an alternative that puts their minds at ease and gives them options.”
AmeriDrive will leverage the car subscription technology and services of Flexdrive to facilitate on-demand car subscriptions via mobile devices.
Agustin Perret-Gentil, chief operating officer of AmeriFinance which owns Ameridrive, said people love the service.
“It’s a one-week commitment and the payment includes everything – insurance, maintenance and 24-hour roadside assistance,” Perret-Gentil said. “It’s very easy to use. You download the Android app and browse the inventory. And you can swap the cars as much as you want. We’re like Netflix – you get to pick what you want and you pay as you drive.”
Flexdrive will help Florida Fine Cars continue to evolve and grow, while also reaching existing customers and new consumers in a different, compelling way, Farahmand said. The family-owned dealership has stores in West Palm Beach, Margate, Hollywood and Miami.
“A car subscription program is truly an ah-hah moment for dealerships when you consider its advantages: recurring monthly revenue, enhanced CSI scores and customer retention as well as more options for consumers with changing needs,” said Jose Puente, CEO of Flexdrive.
Drivers can choose from a mix of makes, models and price points that will suit everything from day-to-day needs to special occasions where getting noticed is what it’s all about.
It’s an alternative to traditional car buying and leasing that makes driving fun: don’t like the car you chose? Find a new one and hit the road.
And while the majority of vehicles are full-size or mid-size late model sedans and compact vehicles, drivers can also browse full-size and compact SUVs, luxury cars and even trucks.
Their ultimate goal is to eventually rent out 1,000 cars, Perret-Gentil said.
“The way we see it is this is the future of the industry,” he added.

And that’s just a small sampling of the variety this subscription service has to offer.
The app lets you browse a huge variety of cars, making it easy to pick something that fits your sense of style.
The subscription payment includes insurance, roadside assistance and maintenance so you don’t have to worry about anything but picking up the keys.
And remember, if you don’t like the car or want to try something else, just switch it up using the app on your phone.
“Florida Fine Cars is a progressive dealership and constantly thinking about how best to evolve to meet consumer demand, while also moving toward mobility and the future of the automotive industry. The launch of AmeriDrive points straight to the forward-thinking that’s core to their business,” Puente added.
