OK, Last time i am asking for homework help...I PROMISE!!!!!
I need some feedback.
still working on my rental car strategy for class...
If you could rent a beater sports/fun car...assuming they are in good mechanical condition with, what would you pay for it?
Here are the cars:
Generation 1 and Gen 2 Miata
1980ish VW Camper
1966 Mustang Coupe
1998 Wrangler softop
1998 Z3 4cyl
What would you pay?
rent a wreck is a horrible business name by the way, it gives confused consumers the wrong message.
The funny part of that story is that we rented that to loan to a friend to drive so we could borrow his Ford Galaxie which was actually big enough to fit 3 people and their bikes INSIDE the car. Fuel was like .85 at the time which helped make this transaction feasible.
1987 Mercedes 190E 16v Cosworth
1997 Volvo 855 T5
2010 Volvo XC90
well, you have to factor the rental fees as part of the buy-in for the avg vehicle
it should cover or chip in for : gas, maintenance, insurance
for a beater, you're paying for liability really
the pricing will have to be REALLY competitive (damn near free, just put in gas), considering zipcar charges per day/hour or something
or you can do it on an experimental basis, like pay what you can or think its worth
i think panera bread did that for one of its stores
