Hertz Expands Services to Include Pick Up & Delivery At 500+ Locations
|The Hertz Corporation has expanded Hertz Local Edition, its local suburban network of rental locations, nationally to include its popular pick up and delivery service at more than 500 of its 600 local, suburban rental locations.|
In 1996, Hertz entered the local suburban market and initially serviced local markets in the Boston/New England, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles and Oklahoma areas. Today, Hertz Local Edition is represented in 29 states nationwide, which offers pick up and delivery service.
"In the U.S. the local market represents a rapidly growing niche for us. More and more customers appreciate the convenience of renting a car in their own neighborhood, whether it's for a long weekend getaway or an alternative to owning a second automobile. In addition, many insurance companies, automobile repair businesses and car dealerships are recognizing the need for convenient access to vehicles that local rental offers their customers," said Joseph R. Nothwang, Hertz Executive Vice President and President, Vehicle Rental & Leasing, The Americas and Pacific.
"Now with convenient pick up and delivery service at our suburban locations, all customers need to do is dial the phone and we'll come and get them," continued Nothwang.
