Renting a car from a company or from a private person, which is better?

Renting a car from a company or from a private person, which is better?

To be successful, a modern person must make quick decisions and respond quickly to any situation, be mobile and independent. This is largely facilitated by the presence of your own car, but there are situations when personal transport is not available or, for financial reasons, it is impossible to buy it at the moment. In this case, car rental will always help. To rent a vehicle, you just need to be over 21 years old, have a driver's license and have more than 2 years of driving experience. In recent years car rental began to enjoy immense popularity in Ukraine and not only among foreigners, for whom this is a quite common service in their native states, but also among our compatriots.

You can rent a car for different purposes:

  • journey;
  • a trip to the airport, to the train station;
  • meeting business partners or relatives at the airport, train station;
  • business trips;
  • excursions;
  • outdoor events.

In a rented car, it is much more convenient and faster to complete all the planned tasks than to do it by public transport.

Now there are many different car rentals and individuals who provide car rental services. Car rental company Narscars did a little research that highlighted the advantages and disadvantages of each of these rental companies.

Features of renting a car from individuals

Many post-Soviet stereotypes are still popular in our country, one of which is the opinion that private traders provide their services much better than organizations. The following arguments are presented in support of this opinion.

  1. Individuals provide their services at a lower cost. If you carefully inspect the car and find an approach to the lessor, you can negotiate an additional discount.
  2. There is no need to waste time on bureaucratic fuss.
  3. If any disputable situations arise during the use of a rented car, you can resolve all issues directly with its owner without involving insurance companies and the police.

Despite the presence of quite significant advantages, renting a car from a private owner has a lot of disadvantages.

  1. Private traders in most cases refuse full insurance. Largely due to this, the cost of their services is reduced, but at the same time, in the event of an accident, all costs will be covered in full by the tenant himself.
  2. Private cars rarely "know" what quality maintenance is. At best, they undergo sporadic repairs. Private traders believe that it is not necessary to bring the car to an ideal condition, because it will still be driven not by them on their own, but by the tenants.
  3. Private owners have very modest car fleets. In the best case, they lease 1-2 cars, that is, they cannot choose a car of a suitable brand and configuration, but they have to take what is available.
  4. Private traders do not provide additional services, such as assistance in planning a route, renting a car with a driver, or returning a car in another place, the address of which is different from the address of the pick-up point.

Despite the more affordable rental price from a private owner, the disadvantages of cooperation with him are still more significant than the existing advantages.

What do you get from a car rental company?

You can order car rental services in Ukraine from a variety of specialized organizations. They can be found through special services, using "word of mouth" or simply carefully looking for ads on the Internet. Despite the higher cost of services in comparison with private companies, rental through specialized organizations in our country is very popular. Various categories of clients resort to their services, ranging from foreigners and businessmen who came to the city on business, to people who have broken down their own car.

It is very easy to rent a car through a special company, it is enough to have a driver's license and meet the requirements that a car rental presents to tenants. If the conditions are met, you can rent a completely serviceable, clean and refueled car of any brand you like. In this case, the rental period can be any. Renting a car from a company also has a number of disadvantages:

  • the cost of the company's services is an order of magnitude higher than that of private traders. This is because firms always have more additional costs and overheads than individuals;
  • The tenant must set aside time to visit the company's office to conclude a contract and comply with all the necessary formalities.

Digging deeper, these disadvantages are actually positive aspects of working with a car rental company. So the higher cost includes full maintenance of the car, repair work and full insurance, and signing a rental agreement guarantees the client that his rights will be respected, and the organization will fulfill its obligations. In addition, the leaseholder's contract will allow avoiding any disagreements with the company during the operation and return of the car.

To make sure once again that renting a car through a company is much more profitable, we will list the main advantages of working with legal entities, and not with private individuals.

  1. Large vehicle fleet. In a car rental, you can choose a vehicle of any class, brand, with any configuration and required characteristics.
  2. All cars provided for rent undergo regular technical inspection and are in good condition. At the same time, the car park is regularly updated, and you can rarely find a car that is more than 5 years old.
  3. Car rental companies usually have an extensive network of rental points, which makes it possible to rent out the rented vehicle in another place and even in another city.
  4. In addition to car rental, there are additional car rental services. For example, you can take a car with a driver or order an additional child seat, Wi-Fi router or navigator.
  5. All of their car companies take out full insurance.

Conclusion

Car rental is becoming one of the most popular services in Ukraine, so the number of companies and private individuals offering this service is growing rapidly. If you value your own comfort and safety, Narscars still recommends using the services of specialized organizations.
