A Tradition Since 1973
Founded in 1968 and franchising since 1973, Rent-A-Wreck is now the oldest and biggest used car rental company in the world. Created as the sensible alternative for your rental car needs, Rent-A-Wreck has provided customers great value and great service for well over four decades. We still compete with the large rental car agencies because we offer savings and service that they cannot match.
Due to its countless media references in print, online, television and films, Rent-A-Wreck’s memorable name has become a unique, renowned brand. In addition to our franchises throughout the United States, we also have locations in Scandinavia.
More Than Just a Name
Although our name may have you thinking otherwise, our fleet of economical rental cars, trucks and vans is both well-maintained and safety-inspected to ensure a comfortable and worry-free experience for our customers. We also regularly drive our cars to make sure they are in great working condition. In addition to regular cars, we also have pickup trucks, box trucks, mini-vans, cargo vans, 15-passenger vans, SUV’s and more at select Rent-A-Wreck locations.
As our business grew, we managed to reach a nearly untouched market of consumers who wanted more value for their money. Fed up with the high prices of the big-name rental car companies, we struck a chord with consumers who appreciated our focus on excellent customer service and affordable rates. As a result, we built up our brand by using our unique name to bring an entirely new business concept to the rental car industry.
While we still get the question – “Do you really rent wrecks?” – our cars are anything but. Although we enjoy the name recognition, it’s our low-cost rentals and superior customer service that keep customers coming back time after time. Indeed, customer loyalty and word-of-mouth advertising continue to be our most effective marketing tools to this day.
