New car rental data from Enterprise shows which states are the slowest for car repairs following an accident.
The data comes from the Automated Rental Management System. That’s a software solution designed by Enterprise to facilitate communication between garages, customers, insurance companies, and Enterprise, “[e]nabling shops to send electronic rental reservations, vehicle status updates and automated text or email customer notifications”.
As such, ARMS is able to weed out data from folks who’ve just rented car for business trips or weekend getaways, focusing solely on those who’ve borrowed a car while theirs is in the shop. ARMS’ stats show that, on average, drivers in the Midwest receive much faster repair service than their friends in other parts of the country.
Coming in dead last is Rhode Island, a tiny state with a huge wait time for car-owners: 14.1 days. The five lowest rungs on the repair ladder include:
Texas (11.9 days)
Alaska (12.3 days)
Louisiana (12.4 days)
Massachusetts (13.5 days)
Rhode Island (14.1 days)
