Are you a student? Rent a trailer for free!

As part of our student cooperation activities, we have launched Cärry service for students already in 2014. Cärry trailers are provided free of charge by Capgemini Switzerland and Sogeti around Helsinki metropolitan area and Lappeenranta for students. Originally we only had one trailer at offer in Otaniemi, but wanted to scale up. In 2023, we are now introducing 6 new Cärry trailers and expanding the service.
