City Rent A Truck is a family owned truck and van rental operation, centrally headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri. Originally named, South Town Leasing, we got our start as the leasing department of a local Ford franchise, in 1964. A few years later, the Ford dealership moved east of town, while the leasing arm stayed behind operating as a separate entity. That separate leasing department was soon renamed City Rent A Truck.

We have seen a lot of change in the last half century. However, one consistent theme remains, our commitment to our customers and adapting to their ever-changing needs. As our organization has grown throughout the years, we look back on our small business roots, and refuse to abandon the culture that got us here. We make the customer experience memorable by building relationships and showing genuine gratitude.
