Knowing exactly who your customers are – and where they are located – is one of the first steps on the road to success in the car rental agency business. Of course, the next step is making sure the cars those customers want are available when and where they’re needed.
While establishing a presence near airports and busy city areas is common sense, if you can get your cars to growing hot spots before your competition – without adding kilometres or wear and tear to the vehicles – you’ve put yourself ahead of the game.
Partnering with an experienced vehicle transportation services provider can help you ensure you’ve got cars in all the right places.
Moving rental cars to the right spots at the right time
Just as every rental agency is different, vehicle transportation service providers have different strengths and weaknesses. Here are three strengths rental agencies should look for in a partner:
- Experience – To get your cars to and from new locations quickly, you need a partner with experience; one who knows the ins and outs of Canada-wide rail corridors network and transportation hubs, and who has an ear to the ground on new developments that can impact your business.
- Canada-wide infrastructure – When dealing with the number of cars and efficiency a rental agency requires, a service provider must offer more than just an office with a phone and a fax machine. Look for a provider that has offices across the country, secure facilities for holding your cars, and company trucks with fully trained operators.
- Strong partners – To help make sure your cars get where they need to be at the right time, your provider likely works with a rail partner or other subcontractors. Do your due diligence and make sure your provider works with proven, experienced transportation organizations.
