ACR RENT-A-CAR SYSTEMS
If you are like most used motor vehicle dealers, you have decided that it is time to add other profit centers into your business. For any business venture to be successful, the management needs the right knowledge to operate that business. If you've considered buying a franchise for thousands of dollars and can't justify it, here is the reason you need to partner with Associated Car Rental Systems. We know the rental car business! The President and CEO of Associated Car Rental Systems, Ron E. Widener, owned and operated a successful used car rental business for years and wants to share this knowledge and experience with you. Several years ago we formed an association to train automobile dealers on how to rent their vehicles. Through the association we have rent-a-car insurance available for our members that is affordable.
What you may not know...
Most dealers don't realize that their "Lot" insurance excludes renting vehicles. Since the vehicles you rent are owned by you, (and if your vehicle is in an accident) you are responsible for ANY LIABILITY claim against your rental customer when at fault. That is why you must carry Rental Car Liability Insurance. If you are like most dealers, you just want to rent a few cars. But without a big fleet, most insurance companies will not cover your vehicles, and most require a working knowledge of the rent-a-car business. That is where the ACR SYSTEM can benefit you by providing the training and the know-how to compete profitably. The ACR SYSTEM is an association of rental car companies which was organized to train new companies how to start-up and operate a used care rental business.
- The Association provides on site training when needed.
- The Association maintains a training center for group training.
- The Association provides "COMMUNICATION SUPPORT" for your questions on day-to-day problems.
- The Association provides Counter Procedure Manuals.
- The Association has rental forms and computer programs available for members.
In addition, we recommend Widener & Associates / Dealer Services, as our Preferred Provider for your rental car insurance. Their policy’s are underwritten through Zurich Insurance Company /Empire Fire & Marine Insurance Company. Their program gives you the flexibility to add and delete vehicles daily as your fleet changes. Quotes are available upon request. Here's how to get started in rent-a-car...
PREMIUM DEPOSIT: If you accept the quote, the insurance company will require a deposit on the premium based on 20% of the annual premium. The deposit is fully refundable if you cancel the coverage (less any premium owed). After we obtain your quote from our agent, we will notify of your rates and of the amount of your deposit.
PREMIUM PAYMENT: You will be billed at the end of each month for the number of units on your fleet. The premium is based on a per unit per month basis. The ACR SYSTEM allows immediate adding and deleting of units as needed. The first billing will take at least 30 to 45 days. You will be billed direct from our fleet insurance company.
MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP FEES: As a member of ACR, you must remit $10 per unit per month (minimum $50) to ACR in addition to the insurance premium. The fee finances the support services of the ACR SYSTEM.
