How to Use a Commercial Rental Safely

Commercial rental vehicles from New Mexico Rental Car can be a great way for businesses to get the most out of their transportation needs. We have a wide selection of vehicles for every business need or occasion. Many of our clients use commercial rentals to transport goods, employees, or customers. Our vehicles are also used for marketing or promotional events. Still, there are some key safety aspects to keep in mind, so we thought we’d cover a few of them today.

How to Use a Commercial Rental Safely

When Loading

When loading a commercial rental, it is crucial to be aware of your surroundings and vehicle weight. Make sure you have plenty of space to maneuver and avoid loading the vehicle too heavily. You should also pack heavier boxes and goods on the bottom, staking lighter things on top. Finally, before you take off, make sure everything is strapped down and secure.

When Driving

When driving a rental, being aware of your surroundings is important. Make sure you have plenty of space to maneuver and avoid driving down crowded side streets or alleys. You should also be aware of the vehicle’s height, especially when driving in tight spaces or pulling into a garage. Pull completely into the spot when parking and avoid hitting curbs or other objects.

When Parking

When parking your vehicle, make sure you always put the emergency brake on. This action prevents the vehicle from rolling away due to weight and is a great deterrent for thieves, as it slows down their getaway. If you can, avoid backing into spaces and always look for larger, pull-through sites. Finally, always park in well-lit areas and keep the vehicle locked at all times when you’re not inside.
