Inspiring Conversations with Ron Jennings of T&T Rentals

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ron Jennings.

Hi Ron, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My wife and I both come from corporate backgrounds. We initially started our rental car business as just a side income that would allow us to contribute more to our retirement accounts. We were already in the process of refinancing our home at that time so we took the $5500 proceeds that we received and purchased a $5K car and put the other $500 towards cleaning materials, tools, etc. Both of us had full-time jobs at the time so we had to create a system that would allow us to prepare the car so that it could be dropped off for the renters. As we got more familiar with the business, we decided to add more cars. After about 6 months of long days and nights, we were able to replace our incomes at our jobs and go full-time in the rental car industry. We have been able to scale our rental car fleet to over 20 cars in the first year and we’re looking forward to what’s to come!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I would say that the road has been smooth so far because I’m comfortable with the risks that can come with the rental car industry. We were very conscious of the need to put safeguards in place, so that we wouldn’t get slowed down when something happened. We’ve encountered accidents, broken down cars, and other inconveniences that we were able to overcome and learn from.

We’ve been impressed with T&T Rentals LLC, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a car-sharing and private rental car company. Our promise is to provide clean, reliable, and affordable cars. We have created a system that allows our guests to have a better experience when renting a car. No paperwork, no lines, contactless pick-ups, drop-offs, and we offer delivery to the location of your choice. We are changing the rental car experience for the better!

Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
Most people don’t know that I worked in the banking industry for 14 yrs. They see our rental car operation and figure that I must have worked for a rental car company at some point. They also can’t believe that I was managing 12 cars with my full-time job. I was tired, but I made it work.
