Reasons for renting a car from an independent
car rental company.
- An independent dealer is not locked into policies made by
a committee that does not understand or care about the needs
of the individual renter that may deviate from the norm.
- An independent dealer is the "boss" and will deal
with your concerns with the respect they deserve.
- An independent dealer values every rental.
- An independent dealer knows what it takes for the rental to
be a success. Every aspect of the rental is considered to be
the most important.
- An independent dealer knows the value of repeat business.
This rental is important because the next rental is more important.
As a result all rentals are the most important.
- An independent dealer treats each rental as if his well being
depends on it. It does.
- An independent dealer always shops for the best products because
the most important people, his renters, rely on them.
- An independent dealer shops the market and always insures
that his rates are the most competitive.
- An independent dealer does whatever is reasonably necessary
to keep the renters satisfied.
- An independent dealer wants to be your rental agency. The
independent dealer is the "boss", and will make sure
that the renter is 100% satisfied.
- Do not lend your personal car even to friends due to insurance
reasons. If your friend drives your car even if they had insurance
on their own then coverage may not be easily transferable in
such a situation since you are not a business entity to legally
transfer coverage. In such a situation your insurance follows
the “CAR” and not the “DRIVER” and therefore
you end up paying for the damage.
