New Rental Hours and Locations

The dream of self-service is that products and services can be available 24/7, without requiring any assistance. We’re pleased to share that we’re continuing to move towards that goal by expanding our truck rental hours with Fetch.

Fetch trucks and vans are now available to rent anytime between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., 7 days a week.

Need to run an errand after work? Have an early-morning delivery? Want to return your vehicle after hours? It’s all possible with Fetch.

We’re also very pleased to share that we are continuing our expansion in Metro Atlanta with two new Fetch locations.

Dunwoody — 1105 Mount Vernon Highway, Atlanta, GA 30328


Sandy Springs — 6780 Roswell Rd Sandy Springs, GA 30328


These new locations will allow us to serve customers in Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, and even surrounding areas such as North Buckhead, Roswell and East Cobb.

We have several other updates in the works that we can’t wait to share with you. Until then, happy Fetching!

The Moment When — Episode 04 with Rob Kischuk Now Available

I first met Rob in 2010 when we were exploring how social media and location-based services would change the ways brands interact with customers.

Rob went on to start a company around this theme, and the last half-decade has been an incredible journey for Rob. He’s dealt with all of the stages of being an entrepreneur: the highs of raising money from top-tier investors to the lows of realizing that your product vision isn’t working.

Rob shares how his perseverance has paid off, and his lessons learned, in our latest episode of The Moment When.

The Moment When — Episode 03 Now Available

I first met TJ Muehleman at ThePort Network. TJ was running the engineering team, and I immediately respected his ability to cross between the technical and business worlds.

Not long after I started PlacePunch, TJ launched his own startup, We&Co, with a mission for helping the service industry.

TJ was kind enough to share the We&Co story with me and talk about how after many years, their company evolved into Standard Code. It’s a really incredible story of how TJ and his co-founder persevered for years with no salaries, hung around long enough to find a problem they could solve, and turned it into a growing business.

You can listen to the full podcast below. Thanks TJ!

Fetch Truck Rental Now in Roswell

We’re very happy to share that Fetch Truck Rental is now available in Roswell! Our Roswell office is convenient for customers in Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, East Cobb and surrounding areas looking to rent a truck or van.

Roswell is the home office for Fetch, and we couldn’t be happier to have a new location open in downtown Roswell.

Our office is located at: 280 S Atlanta Street, Roswell GA 30075

Our mission at Fetch is to make transportation effortless, and we’re thrilled to bring our service to Roswell. Whether you’re moving apartments, running an errand to pick up furniture or cleaning out a storage space, Fetch is here to help with your transportation needs.

We hope to see you soon in Roswell!

Fetch Truck Rental now available in Peachtree Corners

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve opened our second truck rental location in Peachtree Corners!

At Fetch, we’re focused on providing the most convenient and seamless experience for our customers. Many of our customers are located near the Peachtree Industrial area, and we’ve been searching for a location that could support Fetch.

We’ve partnered with the team at Prototype Prime to make this happen. (If you’re a startup in north Atlanta, definitely check them out.)

If you’re in the surrounding areas such as Norcross, Duluth, Johns Creek or Doraville, we’re just a hop, skip and jump away.

Check out our updated locations page to find our Peachtree Corners (and other) locations. All of our cargo vans and pickup trucks are now available to rent at any of these locations. We hope to see you soon!

8′ Pickup Trucks Now Available

Need to make a quick run to pick up some landscaping supplies for a weekend project? Need to move a sofa?

Fetch now has 8′ pick up trucks available to rent! Like all Fetch vehicles, these trucks are clean, easy to drive, and optimized to help you transport your things. Our 8′ trucks include features such as:

  • Automatic transmission
  • Seating for 3 people
  • Extended 8′ bed

Rent an 8′ pickup truck today with Fetch. (Or, book any of our other vans/trucks.)

The Moment When — Episode 02: Jeff Hilimire

I’ve known Jeff Hilimire for 6 years. He was our lead investor and advisor at PlacePunch in 2010, and he’s always been available to help Chris and I whenever we need to talk.

I’m thrilled that Jeff agreed to share his story for The Moment When. If you’re not familiar with Jeff’s work, he’s been at the forefront of digital marketing, mobile and social since starting his first agency, Spunlogic, in the late 1990s.

Jeff’s story is truly one of grit and perseverance. At one point, Jeff was $90,000 in debt with Spunlogic. I have to believe that kind of debt would cause most founders to quit and find a job to start paying off that debt.

But Jeff didn’t quit. He re-oriented his company and found a way to make it work. Listen to his complete story below.

High Roof Cargo Vans Now Available

High roof cargo vans are now available

We’re delighted to share that we’ve added a new class of vehicles to our rental fleet: 9′ High Roof Cargo Vans. These are the largest vans available in our fleet, and they are ideal for moving apartments, furniture, and extra large deliveries.

Our High Roof Cargo Vans pack 323 cubic feet of cargo space and are tall enough to stand up in. Unlike traditional box trucks, these vans provide plenty of space but are aerodynamic and easy to drive in the city or on the highway.

Our High Roof vans are available now, and like all Fetch rentals, they include free pre-paid gas and free insurance. Rent your moving van now with Fetch.

The Moment When

Every entrepreneur faces the moment: nothing is working, and it feels like everything is stacked against you. You have a decision. Should you give up and cut your losses, or do you push through and find a way to make your company work?

In a world of blogs and conferences celebrating the most recent overnight success, these are the tales that aren’t often told.

We’re launching a new podcast, “The Moment When,” that explores these stories. How do you find the strength to carry on and make your company a success when all logic says you have no shot? What does it really take to make your company a success?

In our first episode, I’m delighted to share an interview with my close friend Bill Nussey.

Bill shares some great stories ranging from being a (very) young entrepreneur, starting his second business in college, joining the prestigious Greylock venture-capital firm, and then running several venture-backed companies.

Bill shares his experiences with these different companies, and talks about a few moments when the odds were stacked against him, and how he was able to rally a team to dig their way out.

Making transportation effortless.

Renting a truck is one of the rites of passage for every adult. Whether you’re moving apartments, picking up equipment from the local hardware store, or opening a new office, chances are that you’ll need to rent a truck at some point.

(Fun fact: my past truck rentals include moving props for a musical performance, picking up a yard aerator, and, of course, frequent IKEA runs.)

But, why does the process have to be so stressful, confusing and painful?

• Why does the rental company tell me one price, but I end up paying 3x as much? 
• Why do I have to rent for the day, if I only need the truck for a few hours?
• Why do I have to wait in line?

The rental process is optimized for the business, not the customer.

In fact, most truck or van rental agencies strategically advertise a low rental price. Then, they engineer the rest of the customer experience to make you pay for everything from gas to insurance to packing tape.

Self service is the future. (And, so is Fetch.)

Fetch is now available, and it changes the way you rent a truck. With Fetch, we optimize our experience for you, the customer.

• Instead of getting nickel and dimed, we charge one flat hourly rate that includes miles, gas and insurance.
• Instead of waiting in line, we’ll deliver your Fetch truck to you.
• Instead of paying for a whole day, rent by the hour.

You won’t need to use Fetch every day, but when you do, it’ll be effortless.

Our job is help you get your job done as fast as possible.

Why vans?

At Fetch, we’re starting with making cargo vans available to rent by the hour. Why cargo vans?

• More cargo area than a truck
• Safely enclosed
• Drives like a car

Starting at $15 an hour, you can rent a cargo van that includes 100 miles, prepaid gas and insurance. Need the van for the entire day? It’s just $75.

Don’t want to worry about picking up the vehicle? No problem. We’ll even deliver your Fetch van to you and pick it up when you’re done.

The best way to predict the future is to invent it.

In the future, cars won’t be something we own. They’ll be a service; on-demand and delivered to you.

Our mission at Fetch is to make transportation effortless. Today, we’re moving closer to that future. Soon, we’ll be launching more innovations to bring Fetch closer to you, making it even easier to rent a Fetch van and get your job done.

Having rented trucks and vans numerous time for our personal use, Fetch is the service that we’ve always wished existed.

We hope that when you need to rent a truck, you’ll give Fetch a shot.

We promise we won’t try to sell you packing tape.
