What Our Rental Agents Say About Penske
1. Create a New Revenue Stream
Generating year-round income by creating multiple revenue streams helps businesses reduce risk, ensure a steady cash flow and grow their bottom line.
“Penske has become a revenue stream that is very important to us,” says Steve Grebinar of US Pak & Ship, Boynton Beach, Florida. Grebinar now makes ten times more a week than he made at the beginning of his partnership with Penske.
2. Acquire More Customers
Penske rental agents often see more foot traffic, which leads to more sales. In Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Tammy Cassidy of C & G Auto & Truck, who has been working as an agent for over 20 years, says that she often has Penske customers who stop in to rent or drop off a truck and then come back for their personal auto repair needs, bringing in business customers that never would have found her otherwise.
“When Penske customers come in, we’ll hand them one of our cards and tell them to come back if they ever need service on a vehicle,” she said. “This works out well since nearly everybody has a car. Plus, having Penske trucks in the parking lot is always helpful to get people in the door.”
3. Enhance Cash Flow
Building a partnership with a credible brand like Penske, rental agents can minimize risk while enhancing cash flow and boosting their brand.
“We already had a place to put trucks and we had an office, so we didn’t have any additional overhead that we had to provide to become a Penske agent,” says Mitzi Wallace of Wallace Propane and Welding Supply, Boone, North Carolina. “Now we have an additional stream of revenue that will pay for salaries, which helps me cut down on my expenses for the other businesses.”
4. High-Quality, Reliable Vehicles
The quality equipment and round-the-clock support from Penske builds trust with customers.
“Penske offers top-notch equipment that’s very well taken care of, plus they have a history of excellent customer service,” said Jamie Howrey of JCC Rental in Brighton, Colorado. “Everybody who comes in here has something very positive to say about Penske. I would say 60 to 75 percent of my customers come to Penske and are glad to be with Penske simply because they had a very difficult time somewhere else.”
