DragsterDragster, a Welsh Corgi, loves to ride in our wreckers and is convinced that the small “blind spot” window in most heavy-duty wreckers was invented for Corgis to look through.

    He loves to greet everyone who comes in the door, bark at motorcycles and put the air ride seat all the way up so he can look around.

In addition to collision, automotive, transmission, towing and fleet services, Milstead Automotive & Collision now provides customers with access to quick and easy car rentals from North America’s largest car rental brand, Enterprise Rent-A-Car. In this partnership, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has set up a neighborhood site at Milstead Automotive in Spring, Texas.

“Setting up car rentals where our clients live and work is just one more way for us to help our customers,” said Amy Milstead, president of Milstead Automotive.

In a company press release, Milstead noted that “today, you can’t just be customer-friendly. Now, you need to offer true convenience.”

“Today’s driver is very different from the one who entered Milstead’s shop when it first opened 42 years ago.” Milstead says, “Drivers now have a very different set of demands for their busy lives,” adding that cars are essential in this area, especially with the lack of public transportation.

“People can no longer wait four to five hours for a car repair or a week or two for body work,” Milstead says. “That’s why having Enterprise on-site adds another layer of convenience for Milstead customers. Now, Milstead customers have a broader spectrum of newer vehicles to choose from along with the ease of being able to rent on-site from the number one car rental company in the world.”

Car rentals are just one of the many services Milstead offers. Customers can also find waiting rooms with access to laptops and Wi-Fi, allowing them to work while they wait. There is also a kids’ play area and refrigerators stocked with drinks and snacks.

Milstead Automotive Group is a family-owned and operated full-service automotive repair facility serving Montgomery and Harris Counties. The company was founded in 1971 by Dick Milstead. For more information visit milsteadautomotive.com.
