"The collision repair industries are important to Hertz and our network of neighborhood locations," said Hertz Senior Vice President, John Holt.  "With a network of approximately 3000 suburban locations, many located within auto repair shops, Hertz customers enjoy the flexibility of having a car available while theirs is in the shop.  Our attendance at SEMA and our sponsorship of SCRS' RDE educational series will be instrumental in growing the Hertz business, especially in the insurance replacement market, while educating attendees on the products and services Hertz offers to provide customers with the fastest and easiest car rental experience in the industry."

"Growing the Collision Repair & Refinish footprint in the SEMA Show has been an area of focus for SCRS," stated SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. "We couldn't be more pleased that a longtime member of SCRS, such as Hertz, is bringing the value proposition of their unique services to the show as the first rental vehicle provider to be exhibiting at the SEMA Show."

While at SEMA, Hertz will showcase products and services specifically tailored to the suburban market, including:

Hertz 24/7:  A revolutionary new 'self-service' rental experience available any time, day or night that allows customers to rent a wide variety of vehicles near their home or work when needed and for any length of time -- hourly, daily, or weekly.  Ideal for auto body shops and collision repair centers, Hertz 24/7 enables service providers to offer 'After Hours' car rental to their customers.

Hertz Local Edition:   Hertz's network of neighborhood locations servicing the replacement, leisure and business customers and offering customers pickup and delivery service as well as 'Key2Key' service with cars conveniently located at auto body and collision repair shops, enabling customers to have access to a car while their car is in the shop.
