Richland Car and Truck Rental Continues Sidney Rental Service


Sarah and Mike Petrik

Sarah Petrik has nearly three years in the books managing Sidney's vehicle rentals, and she and her husband, Mike, are excited to now call the business their own.

Sarah worked at the rental store, previously part of the Priceless car rental franchise, and saw a need to continue the service. "When the previous owner said he wanted to be done, I knew there was a need for it. We have quite a few regular customers off the airline, and I didn't want to abandon them," Sarah said.

The Petriks currently own and manage Richland Aviation, with an office located in the same building, so the transition has been seamless, with no interruption in service. The Petriks officially take over as an independent rental agency on June 1st.

Though the size of the fleet has changed, shrinking from an overwhelming 14 vehicles to a more manageable six, the customer focus has not. "My favorite part of this is customer service. I love the interaction with customers," Sarah said. The Petrik's currently offer only face-to-face or telephone reservations, to avoid having customers feel like "just a reservation number," the Petrik's said. ""We want to be part of the very first welcoming committee."

The current fleet contains full and mid-sized SUV's, and 4-door sedans, and rentals are able to accommodate both short and long-term rental. "People can get off the plane and get to their meetings for the day. We are really trying to provide a means to get them where they need to go," Sarah said.

The couple is excited for their move into the rental arena. "I let my faith take the lead and trust this will work out!", Sarah said of their new business endeavor. "My husband and I make a good team".

Richland Car and Truck Rentals is located at the Richland-Sidney Municipal Airport, inside the Richland Aviation facility, to the right of the airport terminal. Rental reservations can be made by calling 406-478-4930.
