CALGARY, July 5, 2013 /CNW/ - In response to the countless residents of
Calgary that have found themselves without transportation due to the
devastation left behind by severe flooding, Discount Car and Truck
Rentals has set-up multiple satellite locations near the most heavily
affected areas in order to provide residents with replacement vehicles.
Extra vehicles have been brought in from other parts of the province,
as well as new vehicles purchased to satisfy the increased needs. "It's
at times like this that we are able to stand out and show our
commitment to our insurance partners and the community, and that we are
always ready to support them and their insureds through any event,"
said Travis Mosbaugh, Director of Alberta Operations for Discount. Once
it was known that a major flood was taking place, Discount immediately
stopped taking reservations for out of town tourists coming for the
Calgary Stampede, to make sure there were enough cars and trucks
available for the affected Calgarians.
Discount was first on the scene with several catastrophe response teams
operating in Calgary and is working closely with insurance companies
and body shops to ensure that customers who have experienced a total
loss or damage to their vehicle are settled into a replacement vehicle
as quickly and smoothly as possible.
"We recognize the importance to be mobile at a time like this, and want
to ensure that we are accessible in order to help residents get around
and continue with their day-to-day lives," said Mosbaugh. "It's the
Canadian way to rally behind our neighbours during difficult times and
we want to provide support in any way that we can."
