Seattle, Washington’s car rental companies are taking on a new strategy to attract more people to its services, as a booming economy drives demand for new car seats.
The Seattle-based CarRentalSeattle announced this week it will launch a new car rental company with the goal of “bringing car ownership to everyone.”
The company said it will operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, with locations throughout Seattle, Tacoma, Issaquah, Bremerton, Everett, Renton and SeaTac.
The company will also offer a car rental service called “Car Rental Seats,” which will be similar to CarRent.
The company said this week that CarRentshare.com will become a wholly owned subsidiary of the company.
CarRentalSeats.com, which is set to launch later this month, will be powered by its own technology.
Car rental company CarRotorseats.net is set for launch in January.
Car rentals are available through CarRantown.com.
The companies have said they will not charge for the car rental, as they are focused on a variety of car rentals and car sharing services.
The Seattle-area rental services are also focused on helping people with disabilities find a car.
In addition, CarRrentseats, which provides car rentals to Seattleites, said it would be launching an app that allows Seattleites to book car rental and car share car share options, which will help more people in the area.
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said last week that car rentals are part of the “normal life” of most Seattleites and that they are part the “shared economy.”
Car rental companies say they are working to diversify the business by offering a wider range of services.
Car Rrentseat, which operates through its own website, said last month it will begin accepting car rentals for residents in Seattle and Washington, D.C.
The firm’s service is not a replacement for car rental services such as Zipcar.
Zipcar said it has more than 2 million active users in Washington, and its services have grown exponentially over the last few years.
Car Rentseats said it plans to expand into more markets in the future.
