Supplement Your Delivery Fleet For The Holiday Season


Budget News Releases


PARSIPPANY, N.J., November 28, 2011 — Many companies that provide local delivery service experience a spike in deliveries during the winter holiday season. From florists to caterers to furniture stores and everything in between, Budget Truck Rental has vehicles to help you meet your delivery requirements – but remember, book early as fleet availability is limited during this busy time of year.

“The time period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is one of the busiest times of the year for truck rentals, and vehicles such as cargo vans can sell out quickly,” said Joe Ferraro, senior vice president of operations, Avis Budget Group, parent company of Budget Truck Rental. “We encourage small businesses looking to supplement their delivery fleets during this time to plan ahead and contact their local Budget Truck dealer as soon as possible.”

Budget Truck Rental’s fleet features cargo vans, 10-foot, 16-foot and 24-foot trucks with ramps or lift gates and is one of the cleanest and best-maintained rental truck fleets on the road. All Budget trucks feature automatic transmissions and every vehicle undergoes a 10-point quality inspection to ensure proper fluid levels, tire pressure and other necessary elements for a reliable, safe rental.

Small businesses hiring seasonal help for delivery may also wish to consider renting a where2 Global Positioning System (GPS) unit from Budget Truck. Budget Truck Rental is the first and only major consumer truck rental company to offer GPS units that include routes designated for trucks. With guidance by Garmin®, where2 offers Budget Truck Rental customers an array of navigation features, including a simple user interface, high-quality maps, audible turn-by-turn directions spoken in multiple languages and Bluetooth hands-free calling capability.

“The winter holiday season is also a popular time for household moves,” said Mr. Ferraro. “Vehicle availability is limited so it’s important for those planning to move, locally or one-way, to make their truck reservations as early as possible.”
