In your continuing effort to bring products and services to your dealers, have you thought about suggesting they add a rental car department? Dealers are concerned about maintining a high CSI and they are always looking to provide profits to the bottom line. A rental department can do both.  Read More...

Types of Car Rental Businesses

One of the most important decisions you’ll make is which type of car rental business to operate – car rental franchise, association-affiliated independent, non-association independent, or an extension of a car dealership. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages, and we’ll work with you to help determine which one is the best option for you. We cover everything from start-up costs to obtaining car rental collision insurance to sales and marketing – even creating that all-important car rental business plan.

Adding a Car Rental Department to an Existing Car Dealership

Dealers often think that the business of renting cars is similar to the business of selling cars, when in fact the only common factor is the vehicles themselves. Car rental insurance requirements and fleet considerations are among these differences. There is great profit potential in adding on a car rental business to your car dealership, and we’ve assisted countless dealers with the steps needed to make it a successful operation.
