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.
