Car & Truck Rentals
Not everyone has the desire, or the space, to own a car or truck, but there are times when they might have a need for these vehicles. Operating a car and truck rentals franchise will allow you to supply these types of vehicles to the public or businesses when required. An individual might need a truck to transport large furniture, haul equipment or building materials in one trip or even take home large purchases. In instances where delivery services are not available or too expensive these individuals will then turn to car and truck rentals to handle the transport themselves.
When opting for the franchising route for a car and truck rentals business, there are a couple of advantages. The first is brand recognition as clients tend to trust and stick to brands that they are already familiar with. Some of the franchise options that are available also have existing partnerships with the travel and tourism sector, airlines or hotel groups, which can be very useful when starting out. In addition they will typically also have marketing campaigns in place that further help with brand recognition. Being part of a franchise also comes with the advantage of better buying power, as established financial arrangements might already be in place. Training and assistance with your business plan are also often included with the franchise as well as other services such as software and insurance.
While this type of franchising option is not very labor intensive, the focus is very much on customer service, so good communication skills is a must. The business can be operated with relatively few employees, but a larger initial investment is required as you will need premises as well as a fleet of vehicles and trucks. There is always a demand for rental vehicles, though, so with proper management and care there is definitely potential for growth. When dealing with commercial clients you also have the possibility of repeat business. Some businesses have seasonal peaks or temporary projects where truck rentals make more sense than purchasing. They then have the benefit of expanding their fleet without the extra overhead by making use of a rental service.
