Choosing A Parking Space For Your Commercial Vehicle Rentals Business

The business of commercial vehicle rental has many serious considerations for anyone who intends to enter the industry. Over the last few months, I have spent time discussing some of these considerations that must be addressed as a matter of urgency before money is thrown. Most of the considerations have centered on vehicle financing.

The commercial vehicle rental is capital intensive and as a result it requires a huge financial investment on the part of the entrepreneur in order to purchase and maintain all the trucks. The trucks or vehicles are the most important asset for the business. Without them there will be no business. Because of this very reason, security measures are a crucial factor in protecting your most precious commodity.

In my previous articles, I have discussed insurance as an important security measure in the area of theft or fire outbreak. In today’s article I will take a look at another important aspect that has a close relationship with these factors. If you are going to start a truck rental business, one of the essential needs will include a parking space the vehicles. This brings a lot more to consider in terms of security.

Choosing a space is of utmost importance if security is very crucial to you. Well, I believe it must be crucial for you to consider the security implications when making that all important decision. Things to look out for must include physical security of the space. The space must be adequately fenced with materials that will help prevent break-ins. Installing security systems such as CCTV cameras within the vicinity will facilitate the monitoring of any suspicious movements in the area.

Another factor to take into consideration is the size of the space. If the trucks are large, then obviously you will need a big space and vice versa. Also the number of vehicles will determine how much space you will require. Whatever it is, make sure you have enough space to facilitate easy management of the vehicles. For example, the space must be enough for you to divide into parking, cleaning and/or maintenance areas. Or it should have spaces for vehicles in and vehicles ready to go out for hiring. Or better still, it should have divisions for light commercial vehicles and heavy duty trucks.

Organizing the space efficiently and effectively this way will help you manage the vehicles inventory well. Not only that, but it will also make it easy to save them just in case there is a fire outbreak or disaster for that matter. You will be surprised at how much difference this can make during a time of chaos.
