Redspot Car Rentals opens its new location in South Melbourne, catering to the expanding residential and commercial precincts in the south and south east of the city. The new location is reflective of the areas changing needs, as South Melbourne’s light industry is being replaced with high-rise apartments to support the population growth in the area. The new developments have seen locals opting for more economical means of transportation, as many are now choosing car hire over car ownership for financial and convenience purposes.

The home grown Australian owned company founded in 1989 with just a car and a ute, today has expanded across the continent to become a national operator and Australia’s largest locally owned car rental brand. Dan Mekler, Managing Director of Redspot Car Rentals is thrilled about the opening of the company’s latest Melbourne operation. He believes that the new location will support and expand on Redspot’s existing Melbourne CBD operations, whilst accommodating the growing needs of the south of the city.

“We’re very excited about bringing our services to Thistlewaite Street, South Melbourne. Melbourne is rapidly expanding and the demand for hire vehicles in convenient locations is paramount,” said Dan Mekler.

Not only for the global traveller, the need for hire cars has significantly increased with both business’ and residents discovering firsthand the advantages of hiring vehicles over buying outright. It’s no secret that cars are expensive, but a brand-new car loses its value the moment it’s driven out of the dealership and the upkeep is ongoing. Essentials such as registrations, insurance, repairs, petrol and even parking can put a real strain on a household’s budget. Supporting Melbourne’s southern suburbs transition, Redspot’s South Melbourne location is ideally suited to residents who have chosen to forgo the large upkeep of owning a car to simply hire one when needed.

Redspot’s South Melbourne location delivers a full range of passengers and commercial vehicles, including trucks and vans. It has direct access via Montague Street to the Westgate Freeway, Citylink and the Melbourne CBD, and excellent access to public transport, providing convenient pick up and drop off opportunities.

Redspot Car Rentals, 124 Thistlewaite Street, South Melbourne, will be open seven days a week from Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 6.00pm and Sat-Sun 8.00am to 2.00pm (closed public holidays). For flexibility and convenience, Redspot Car Rentals expansion into South Melbourne will support and foster the growing needs of both local residents and business’ in the area.
