Budget Truck Rental today announced a new partnership with Fetch, a self-service truck startup, which makes Budget trucks available for rent through Fetch’s mobile marketplace.
Fetch users can rent Budget box trucks, cargo vans and pickup trucks by the hour, day or week with prices as low as $10 per hour. For consumers who seek access to a larger vehicle for specific transport needs, Fetch offers rental options with more flexible terms.
The partnership is currently active at 13 locations across Orlando, Fla., with plans to expand to other regions and states throughout the year.
From making a reservation to unlocking the truck, Fetch users can control the entire rental process directly from a smartphone. There is also 24/7 availability for pickup and drop-off across Orlando, eliminating the need for customers to walk into a store or rely on someone else to hand over the keys.
Through this partnership, Budget now offers self-serve, on demand truck rental by making trucks more accessible to help meet customers’ needs as the trucks can be rented for as little as an hour at a time, a level of flexibility not previously available. As it looks to align with businesses that share its vision to empower consumers to make mobility work on their own terms, Avis Budget Group, Budget Truck Rental’s parent company, has also made an early stage investment in Fetch.
The Budget trucks available for rent will be maintained by Avis Budget Group. Through this partnership, Fetch is tapping into Avis Budget Group’s fleet management experience to advance the quality and size of its fleet in the Orlando market.
