Mike Albert Rental considers a long-term car rental as renting a car for 30 days or more. When planning a long-term car rental, rental terms can be a predetermined amount of time or a month-to-month. While customers have the option to rent for an extended period, they also can lease a car for a short period of time. How are the two different?
Short-Term Car Lease vs. Long-Term Car Rental
While leasing and renting are common alternatives to buying a car, the two are different due to aspects like flexibility, mileage limitations, and insurance coverage.
Short-Term Car Leasing: required background check, contract, and a designated period of time in your car of choice. Most leases are two years or more. Shorter lease terms are possible; however, they can be hard to find.
Long-Term Car Rentals: no contracts or credit/background checks. Long-term rentals allow for month-to-month renting and more flexibility.
Reasons To Rent A Car Long-Term
There are several reasons you may need a car for an extended period of time. By choosing a long-term car rental, you’re choosing the convenience of a vehicle that fits your needs at lower costs and shorter commitments. Here are a few of the top reasons we see our clients, both businesses and individuals, renting cars long-term:
Freeing up capital for larger investments in their business.
Increasing need during a busy season for additional vehicles.
Visiting an area for an extended period and needing transportation for themselves, family members, or coworkers.
Some more technical reasons we see are:
No loss of value or depreciation to their own car while in use.
Flexible terms allow customers to rent for as long, or short, as they like, exchanging vehicles based on personal or professional needs.
Ability to rent a variety of vehicles from the newest model of cars, SUVs, and vans at a fraction of the purchase cost, plus no down payment.
