Buying a car is quite easy, but few people buy a car to go to an island. Moreover, a car owner in Malta has enough tasks - from finding a parking space to registration difficulties and delivery from the mainland.
Therefore, the demand for car rental is growing now. You can make good money in this sector of the market.
How to set up a car rental business in Malta
“Give people what they need, and they will come back to you again” - this principle is brought to perfection by car rental services. Creating a personal service is not so difficult. You should start with your personal website on WordPress - one of the most accessible CMS systems for the user. It is extremely simple and easy to use.
The site is up, what’s next?
Connect a car monitoring system. You can hire programmers, lawyers and an accountant to create a system from scratch. But it is expensive, difficult and time consuming. Or you can use the ready-made solution – RentSyst. This is a cloud service that helps you manage your fleet.
- Stable monitoring via GPS will show you the current car condition. You will also get access to the door locks and the engine. You will be able to turn off the car or start it if the client has any difficulties. You will also be able to track the speed of the car along with the consumption of fuel or electric charge.
- You will have access to a car demand map. You will be able to collect local statistics about which cars are most in demand and in which area. Tailor your fleet to your customers' needs and get the most out of it.
- The service gives you access to a personal CRM system. You can track income and expenses, build logistics and see an objective picture of the budget.
- In this case, it is not necessary to immediately purchase the plugin. You can use the demo to evaluate the feature set and make an informed decision.
This refers to the internal features of the software. Properly organized software is like the central nervous system of the body.
