There are many ways to grow your small enterprise without stretching your resources too far. One is through outsourcing, which we typically think of as covering things like PR marketing and IT. But Enterprise Nation partner Hertz says small enterprises without the means to buy a vehicle or the need for full-time transport should also consider outsourcing their wheels"¦
One of the great mottos at Enterprise Nation is 'focus on what you do best and outsource the rest' - if making goods and services is what you excel at, then you continue to focus on that and have others help with activities like sales, marketing and accounts. But there's another item you can also strike off the to-do list and outsource to experts as and when you need it: vehicle rental and management. Outsourcing your motor requirements to Hertz is a sensible way to grow the business as you keep overheads under control and have the flexibility of being able to hire wheels for as long or as short as you like. For example, if you only need to attend a craft fair once a fortnight for half the year and you're finding you've outgrown your family car, then rental could be a more cost-effective option than buying a van at this stage in your business. We posted in February about the products Hertz has on offer. With options ranging from Hertz On Demand where you pay as you go, to Hertz 28 + for longer term rentals of a month or more, there are plenty of choices for meeting your motoring needs when doing business in the UK - and overseas. If you're looking to grow by outsourcing what you consider to be the non-core functions of the business, add motoring and transportation to the list and count Hertz as an outsourced partner as much as you would an accountant or marketer!

We're running an informal survey about business transport in our Community. We're not just interested in what kind of vehicle you drive, but fun things like how much stuff you've managed to squash into a van and the craziest place you've delivered. One randomly selected contributor will get a free weekend's rental from Hertz. Let us know! Photo credit: Mr Thomas
