Imagine rugged country roads under four off-road tires and a roaring engine. This is an image of working America. Many companies need fleets of trucks to assist them as they grasp that American dream. Regardless of what other rental companies do, here at Flex Fleet we promise to provide the best rental trucks the world has to offer — American trucks.
Asian Car Companies Are Making Great Cars
Asian car companies like Toyota, Hyundai-Kia and Honda are stepping up to the plate when it comes to economical cars. In fact, many rental car companies are replacing the Ford and GM cars in their fleets for Asian cars. The best rental trucks, however, are still made by American motor companies.
Many Rental Fleets Are Replacing American Cars for Asian Cars
In the past, big auto companies like Ford and GM sold their excess cars in bulk to rental companies. The practice is largely unprofitable because these car companies offer major discounts to the rental companies. Last year, Ford and GM reduced their sales to rental companies by 11 percent. In response, Asian car companies are picking up the slack.
Rental car fleets are still mostly made up of Ford and GM cars, but rental companies are buying mostly Asian cars as of late. Toyota, Hyundai-Kia and Honda are simply making cars that are perfect for rental companies. Companies like Enterprise and Avis are looking for small or mid-sized cars that are reliable and have good gas mileage. American car makers aren’t quite competing.
Nothing Compares to the American Truck
Rental trucks, on the other hand, are a different story. American trucks from Ford, Dodge and GM are tougher than the Japanese trucks. American trucks are also cheaper. Better trucks for cheaper? This is kind of a no-brainer. This is why here at Flex Fleet, we only offer the best American trucks. It’s a win-win-win. You win because you get a quality rental fleet at an affordable rate. We win because you win and America wins because Merca’. When working with Flex Fleet, everybody wins.
