I would be interested to learn more details of Winslow's success. Our experience has been that a number of insurance companies would not respond to requests for quotes for a vehicle with multiple ownership. Anecdotally, quotes for an LLC owned vehicle were "sky high" and forming an LLC (here in Virginia) costs $100 and involves a lot of paper work. Then the LLC has to file at least income tax returns every year, both State and Federal . . . . . Arrrgh ! ! - it was all too much!

I'm interested in this post (from Feb 2010) from Audrey for solving the insurance question: ... At Winslow Cohousing we solved that [insurance] by separating the car sharing from the community. There is an LLC that owns an electric car and soon will also own a pickup truck. the LLC has insurance which isn't that unreasonable (people below a certain age and above a certain age, I think 70, have to pay more) Individuals join the LLC (buy-in), and then share expenses for the car/truck....There is talk about sharing other cars as well, to reduce the entire net ownership of cars in the community...
