In large urban motropoli like London, it makes little sense to own your own car when you are only going to need it a few times a month. So, car renting and sharing services make great sense there, and are sprouting up all over. One such example of this type of service is Zipcar, which is based in the U.S. but is available in London. Now, you can couple the Zipcar service with a new service called Park At My House, which allows users to share cars and parking spots. I think this kind of thing should be started with trucks. You need to get a dresser moved from one house to another... so you book a truck for an hour and plot where you'll be. After you are done, the next person comes and picks that same truck up and uses it for their purposes. Makes good sense.
