(I-AutoNewsWire.com, July 20, 2015 ) Johannesburg -- A car hiring Services Company based in Johannesburg and Capetown shared important car renting tips. The information officer, of SMH car, hire comments. "People who want to hire a motor vehicle should know the crucial steps to follow and what to do exactly, so as to avoid unnecessary complications with the car renting company there are dealing with."
He continues, "The first step is obvious. You must select the best vehicle that will suit all your needs. Be it you need car hire services, for short term or long term special occasions, weddings, auto holiday, or a business contract car to hire.
Do you need a car for hire in Johannesburg? Or a luxury 4x4 vehicle rental in Cape Town. If you want to experience a car rental VIP service, you must also play your part and be at least proactive. It is important to first of all conduct some research, If you are not sure of the area that you will be driving and exploring.
You must establish whether you need an off road car to hire or not. Consider the size of the vehicle, especially if you are driving solo and the power of the vehicle that you are going to need. For instance, Range Rovers are a luxury four-wheel drive that have extensive off road capabilities."
He adds, "When it comes to booking your car you must precisely know how long you will be renting the vehicle for and how much the rates charges are. Do not just choose a car rental company at first glance.
Conduct a simple Internet research to verify if you are dealing with a legitimate rental company. Do not provide you credit card information or make any payments without fully understanding the entire process of the deal.
If you are doing your booking, online make sure that you have read and understand the terms as well as conditions before you make reservations. Are they any restrictions, boundaries to where you can travel to with the vehicle that you are about to rent?
Does your contract for instance state car rental Cape Town only and are they stiff penalties involved. What are the conditions are for instance if you prefer to hire a one-way car rental."
He noted, "People must be aware of the exact additional fees such as insurance, petrol and drop off charges. Other luxury car rental service provider rates are not transparent about all costs, e.g., estimated taxes and fees early on when clients are doing their bookings.
When you finally pick up your rental car, do a thorough inspection. Does it have any visible damage to the body? Check the mileage, lights and signals, are there working properly? Familiarize yourself with how the car works, for instance, windshield wipers, headlights, and check that side your gas tank."
He added, "Take note of prepaid gasoline and remember to fill up the tank before you return the car. Make sure that you return the car on time to avoid any penalties that you might pay for. Returning the care late results in extra charges per day depending on the car rental company you have chosen. Return the vehicle in the exact condition that you were given and you will not have any problems. Finally always remember to make sure that you did not leave any valuable personal belongings."
