Budget 'Picks up' the pace

Southbank’s rent-a-car institution, Budget, is again showing initiative in its field, unveiling its “Happy to pick you up” service to Southbank residents.

The service provides users the opportunity to be picked up from home, work or even panel shops and driven back to Budget’s office, where you can rent a car from there.

The service is available for anyone within five kilometres of Budget’s Southbank office, so all residents and workers within postcode 3006 have access to it.

Branch manager, Mario Alonzo, said the service provided a professional and friendly staff member to ensure you are never left stranded.

“’Happy to Pick You Up’ offers a more flexible service for our Southbank locals.  It’s a brilliant concept that brings the Southbank community closer,” Mr Alonzo said.

“It’s such an easy process, with no hassles.”

He also pointed out that it was simply an extension of the customer service levels the branch had always strived to achieve.

“We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality customer service as possible. With the new ‘Happy to pick you up’ service, we’re taking that to the next level,” Mr Alonzo said.

The service is available between 9.30am and 3.00pm weekdays.  

Accessing the service is as simple as booking online through the Budget website, then calling the branch to organize a pick up location and time. Or by dialing 9299 2222 and speak to the friendly staff.

“The service is designed for people who are in a hurry and haven’t got access to a car,” Mr Alonzo said.

“We think it is a service that Southbank locals will find extremely helpful and we hope people utilize it. And don’t forget we will happily get you back at the end of the rental” he added.

To find out more about “Happy to pick you up” or to book, head to www.budget.com.au
