Last night an earthquake occur in Tehran and Karaj 5.2 richter earthquake. That was horrible all the citizen were afraid of happening again. Previously in Sar Pol Zahhab,Kermanshah was happened and destroyed all the houses and this cause people be more afraid. People prefer to sleep in their cars and even parks.
Last night our company (Tabatabaee rental car) find a new trend that people call for hiring car only to sleep in it. Last night until 1:00 am our marketer was calling to rent car only for one night. For the first time i think we are renting a hotel room , safe place for that night.
We hope that the earthquake had no damage lose. However all the official said there is no damage lose. At the first glance there is no damage but some cars has been damaged.
Recent news from other companies has been revealed that some rental cars has been damaged.We hope insurance make a remedy for that. Insurance in Iran for rental car companies is not supported by government.
After the last night earthquake many people today rent car to go away from Tehran, Karaj, Malard to be at a safe place and unfortunately again other companies raise their rental car price. As this happening is not new to Iranian people.
According to research conducted more than two decades ago by the Japan International Cooperation Agency, Tehran’s fault lines can produce earthquakes of magnitude 7.0. We hope never such happen.
If a little more powerful earthquake happens everything in Tehran may be destroyed and loss will be much Tehran is crowd and even last night a heavy traffic happen and even those who have not their own car rent car to escape.
