Commercial vehicles come in a range of sizes and formats. Whether you’re a one-person business or a corporation with outlets across the country, having the right commercial vehicle often plays a vital role in the success of your business operations. That said, renting a commercial vehicle can be a little daunting, especially if you’re doing it for the first time.
Think One is a leading provider of vehicle leasing and rental services in Singapore, and in this guide, we share the Dos and Don’ts you should keep in mind when it comes to renting a commercial vehicle. Read on to learn more!
Allow yourself some time to get used to the vehicle
Many drivers tend to be used to how their own vehicle drives and where everything is located. Therefore, when renting a commercial vehicle, take a moment to really get a feel of it and the controls before driving out of the lot.
When on the road, slow down, make your turns carefully and ease into parking spaces as your rental vehicle could feel unfamiliar and hence, may be more challenging to drive.
Don’t leave it until the last minute
It is always advisable to make a reservation for a vehicle as soon as possible. This allows you ample time to select the commercial vehicle best suited for your needs, providing a peace of mind to concentrate on the other details of your event or move.
For added convenience and flexibility, look to commercial rental services such as Think One that provides rentals for a range of timelines. This ensures you get to choose a perfect timeframe for your operational requirements.
Check your insurance coverage
Safety is of utmost importance, especially when it comes to driving on the road. Therefore, it is important to ensure that you are covered by your insurance in the case of an accident in a rental vehicle. Be mindful to check with your own car insurance company before renting a commercial vehicle, such that you fully understand what your coverage covers. Doing so will help with determining if you require additional coverage through a rental company or if you need to add it to your rental plan.
Don’t rush to drive off with the vehicle
The vehicle leasing company is there to answer any questions you may have before you leave. We encourage you to take the time to inspect the vehicle before driving off to make sure that any issues have been ironed out before you go. In addition, you should also take time to have your route planned out, such that you can set off safely and with confidence.
We hope the steps above will be beneficial for understanding the process of renting a commercial vehicle and help with navigating your vehicle rental with confidence.
