What is a Long-Term Car Rental?
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.
