The Hertz Corporation has partnered with FixUSA, the US division of FixAuto, to provide car rental services to FixUSA's network of independent auto body repair centers.
Through Hertz Local Edition, Hertz' network of suburban rental locations, Hertz will offer car rental services, including pick up and delivery, to FixUSA's body shops, allowing customers to pick up their rental car at the repair shop or from a nearby Hertz location. This partnership offers insurers and consumers a seamless transaction from the customer's first contact with his/her insurance company through the final billing and payment process. This coordinated effort, arranging the rental car, tow and scheduling the shop appointment takes place when a customer first contacts FixUSA.
Joseph R. Nothwang, Hertz Executive Vice President and President, Auto Rental & Leasing, the Americas and Pacific, commented, "Hertz has a long standing commitment to develop its suburban and insurance replacement business. FixUSA's commitment to quality and service mirrors that of Hertz and, our partnership enables customers whose cars need to be repaired to arrange for all needs, including car rental, with one call to FixUSA."
FixUSA offers complete after-collision services to collision repairers, insurers and consumers. FixUSA network members specialize in bodywork, repairs to damaged vehicles and painting, as well as after-collision services and damage appraisals.
With a full range of vehicles available, Hertz Local Edition services may include #1 Club Gold counter service and vehicles equipped with NeverLost®, Hertz' in-car global positioning system. As with all Hertz corporate locations, vehicles are available with unlimited mileage and all rate structures are honored, including one-way, inter-city rates. Coupled with pick up and delivery service, Hertz Local Edition is an ideal option for individuals needing an insurance replacement rental.
