About Hertz, History and Headquarters Information

History

Hertz was founded in the year 1918. The company has been operational for almost 101 years now. The founder of the company was Walter L Jacobs. The former name of the company was Rent A Car Incorporated. The company started off with a dozen Model T Ford cars, and within the next five years, the company had expanded to almost 600 cars. During that time, the company was already generating nearly $1 million revenues as well. In the year 1923, the company was taken over Yellow Truck and Coach Manufacturing Company, and it was renamed to Hertz Drive-Ur-Self System. The company was again sold to General Motors Corporation in the year 1926, who had also purchased its parent company, known as General Motors Corporation, in the year 1943. The company had released its first car under the ownership of General Motors. The company had opened its first rental car location at Chicago's Midway Airport in the year 1932. The following year, the company had also introduced the first one-way rental plan. The company had expanded to Canada in the year 1938, along with Europe in 1950 and even South America in the year 1961.

The company was repurchased from General Motors by John Hertz in the year 1953. The company was renamed to The Hertz Corporation, and the company was also made a limited public entity as well. The company had also relocated its headquarters from Manhattan to New Jersey, USA, in the year 1988. The company also started truck leasing services as well, in the year 1954, with the help of almost 4,000 trucks. The company had also taken over Metropolitan Distributors, which had increased the company's number of trucks to over 15,500 trucks and more than 12,900 cars. In the year 1985, the rental car service was sold over UAL Corporation, for about $587.5 million. In the year 2000, the company started to introduce SiriusXM Satellite Radio in all of its rental cars and trucks as well. The company was the first rental company to launch its services in China. Then in the year 2007, the company started to provide vehicles that create less pollution with the Toyota Prius Hybrid. Two years later, the company had taken over a car sharing technology company known as Eileo SA. As of the year 2012, the total revenue generated by the company is more than $7.1 billion. The following year, the company had partnered up with China Auto Rental Company as well. The same year, the company also introduced rental for performance oriented cars too. As of the year 2016, the company had reached a market capitalisation of almost $3.7 billion. The headquarters of the company is based in 8501 Williams Road. The name of the place is Estero, while the name of the state is Florida, USA. The pin code of the area is 33928.

    Both my husband and I are Gold Club members. On December 15, we were caught up in the Kansas City snowstorm. We had family members with us so were each driving our own cars. I avoided all other cars but rear-ended my husbands truck. Long story short…both were totaled but thank god, no one was injured. At the request of our insurance company, we contacted Hertz that night about needing ONE rental, pickup in Liberty, MO and drop off in Des Moines. Speaking with an agent in Liberty, I was told their priorities were business and insurance rentals and to call Enterprise!!! We did in fact call Enterprise, got our rental the next day and drove home. Later that same day, we picked up TWO long term rental cars from Enterprise.
    Doesn’t Hertz care about loyalty anymore? Glad to give our business to someone who cares.

    Today I rented a car for 275.00 and with deposit of 200.00 was it but a few hours later I see there is a second charge for 608.00$ and all hertz say that they only see the one charge for 475.00. They locked up a fraudulent charge of my rent money and everyone I spoke to acted like it was no big deal. I make $13.00 an hour for 3 days a week work. I’m in shock! 67 years old and over the years gave hertz plenty of business but now they don’t seem to care one bit that my $608.00 that does not belong to them and is actually money from bank loan is jammed and I’m supposed to wait till Monday for some kind of answer!
    This is just plain unacceptable!!!!!!
    We’ll see If it is no big deal!!!!

    They have beautiful cars that you select on the website and I reserved one with navigation features, etc. When I got to the airport they only had one car left and it was an old one with an outdated navigation system. It was awful. I got lost several times and one night a policeman had to drive in front of me to show me back to the hotel. Why doesn’t Hertz “SAVE” your car for you. I paid and was charged for a much better car. They took me for a ride alright!

    I rented a vehicle oversees and it broke down 20 minutes later. I waited for 4 hours for someone to come and get me, take me back to the airport, waited for the mechanic to say ok there’s something wrong and then they gave me another car. A week later they charged me $1700 for a damaged clutch. I tried reaching out and was told it was my fault even though I have time stamps on everything. Any thoughts?

    I CALLED A WEEK IN ADVANCE AND SPECIFIED I WANTED TO RENT A SUBURBAN BECAUSE OF HOW MANY PASSENGERS AND WAS TOLD WE WOULD HAVE IT READY FOR YOU. SECOND CALL TO VERIFY TWO DAYS IN ADVANCE AND CONFIRMED RESERVATION. DAY OF PICK UP GOT TO HERTZ AND THEY HAVE AN INFINITY SUV WAITING FOR ME NOT WHAT I RESERVED AND WAS TOLD CAN NOT GET YOU A SUBURBAN AFTER TWO CONFIRMATIONS. NOT THE WAY TO DO BUSINESS IN A SMALL TOWN.
    GOOD BYE HERTZ HELLO ENTERPRISE !!!
