We’re thrilled to welcome a new fleet partner to Fetch, Alex Chu.
Alex has joined Fetch’s self-service marketplace to make his fleet of trucks in Atlanta available to rent.
Alex first discovered Fetch when he and his wife were moving in 2017.
My wife and I were moving, and the last time we moved, we used uHaul, so I did what anyone else would do: I searched on Google for a moving truck to see if someone else was running a special or had a deal, said Alex Chu. That’s how I stumbled upon Fetch. The app-enabled van rental was so easy, I had to give it a shot.
When Fetch launched its marketplace, enabling any fleet owner to use Fetch’s technology and begin offering self-service rentals, Alex knew there was an opportunity to offer trucks on Fetch within the city of Atlanta.
Living inside the perimeter, your only options are uHaul or Home Depot for truck and van rentals. I felt that Fetch was a superior service, and wanted to spread what I thought was the best and easiest van and truck rental experience around.
All of the studies on the future of car ownership are clear: cars will transition from being assets people own to becoming subscription-based products and on-demand services.
I see car ownership going the way of everything else. Subscriptions. And for those who don’t want a subscription, the on-demand world fills the void. Fetch fulfills that need. But, it also allows someone like me, who drives an “impractical” two-door car, not sweat it when I have to move a couch. Just grab a Fetch van for an hour or two, and you’re all set.
In the future, Alex hopes to continue helping eliminate the stress of moving and transportation.
I’d like to have a fleet of rental vehicles. Preferably partnering with some local businesses to ease their logistical needs so they don’t have to own a vehicle full time that they only use part-time, or less!
