Arizona has a pretty good reputation for being a car rental-friendly state, but that reputation could be starting to crumble.
In the past year, car rental company Aspen Car Rentals has closed five of its stores and cut jobs.
But this summer, a different kind of car rental is opening up in the state, and it’s starting to pay off.
The new car rental chain, Car Rental Arizona, started in February of 2018 with a handful of car dealerships and some new employees.
Aspen says it has more than 500 vehicles and will be able to hire up to 100 drivers a day.
Car Rotation’s website has some tips on getting a car, and the company offers a 24-hour phone hotline.
And Aspen wants to get into the rental business as quickly as possible.
“Our goal is to have a 100% occupancy within a year,” said Aspen CEO and founder David Ritchie.
That goal is still a long way off, but it’s the sort of thing Aspen can do quickly if it wants to survive in a time of increasing competition for rental cars in Arizona.
Arizona’s population is just over 30 million, but there are more than 50,000 car rental companies, and many are struggling.
There are only a handful that have a real chance of keeping their doors open.
Some states are more car rental friendly than others, like California and New York, and there are other states where it’s not so easy to get a car.
But Arizona has become one of the top spots for car rental growth.
In 2018, the state added 1,945 new car rentals, according to the latest figures from the National Association of Realtors.
That number rose to 1,950 last year.
In 2019, Aspen added 1 and a half new car companies, which means the total number of rental car companies is now up to 1.6 million.
The number of car rentals in Arizona also jumped in the first half of 2019, as more and more people started to make trips across the state.
In recent years, as car rental prices have gone up, car companies have started to open up shop.
As of mid-2018, there were nearly 100 car rental stores in Arizona, according the National Conference of State Legislatures.
But as more people make trips around the state with their cars, that number has dropped, according a report from the University of Colorado.
Last year, the number of cars available to rent in Arizona fell to 1 million, according data from the state of Arizona.
As the car rental market in Arizona is already a bit of a mess, there are a lot of questions about what will happen to Aspen and the others that have left.
Will they be able be able make a profit?
How will they find the workers?
Will they be forced to lay off staff?
Will there be a downturn in the rental market?
And will that impact the rental companies?
“We want to make sure that we’re going to be able and able to compete,” said Ritchie, who has run Aspen since 2015.
And he knows how tough it will be.
As an investor in Aspen, he has seen firsthand the problems car rental firms face when they don’t keep up with the market.
In 2016, he and a friend decided to buy a car that had a long-term lease for $1,200 a month.
The car had just over two years of mileage on it.
After the lease expired, the car was towed and the car totaled.
The owners had to start paying for repairs and the owner was still paying for the car.
So they decided to get rid of the car and rent it out.
That meant they’d be paying $1 a day for the entire car.
They couldn’t afford to take a second mortgage, so they had to take the car off the lot and rent a smaller one.
But they also had to pay for maintenance and insurance.
And because they were trying to make money renting the car, they were able to rent out the car to the family for $500 a month, which was $500 more than the lease price.
