Everyone hates having accidents. No one would be happy to be a part of it, and those who experience it simply dislike the experience. Of course, this can also serve as a learning experience, but the tremendous loss, pain, and trauma from participating in it are too much to be associated with anything positive. No one wanted to participate even remotely, and anyone would have agreed to that.
The accident rental car industry faces a very different environment from five years ago. According to Business Travel News, vehicles are chartered until they accumulate 20,000 to 30,000 miles when they are brought into the used car industry, whereas the mileage was 12,000 to 15,000 miles five years ago.
Due to slow industry growth and low-profit margins, there is no risk of imminent reintegration into the industry. In fact, among industrial companies, only Hertz is vertically integrated through Ford.
Even though accidents – of all kinds – are so undesirable, they do happen. And a lot happened. It seems like something that is not really in our hands to completely avoid. However, one must be prepared for anything, and it would be best for each of us to prepare and practice things aimed at minimizing the likelihood of being involved in an incident.
