Beware of private vehicle owners who are renting out their cars. My friend rented out a car only to find out in the middle of the trip that the insurance was expired. Always check all papers before you rent the car. Better yet, it is safer to rent from rental car services. A tad more expensive but you are assured of integrity in its papers.
Hey, guys! Our office is on the 3rd floor of a building but our employees park their cars in the common parking lot in the basement. That is a shared parking lot and employees of other offices in the building also park their vehicles in the same lot. As a measure of safety and to prevent misuse of limited parking space, we are planning to issue employee parking permits to the staff. Can anyone share some valid reasons as to why parking permits with company’s name and logo are better than the normal ones? I guess custom parking permits would be a costly affair and frankly speaking, we want to cut corners here.
