Also, to commemorate 30 years, each week until the end of March, Centerline will share 30 things they love about St. Croix on the Centerline blog and social media. The friendly people of St. Croix made the top of the list and will kick off the celebration in September.
“From the day I did my first car rental transaction back in 1990, I always loved sharing all that St. Croix has to offer,” says Manuel Gutierrez, owner of Centerline Car Rentals. He would enjoy taking the time to give insider tips to his customers, pulling out a map and directing them to the beer drinking pigs and his favorite snorkeling spots.
“Now I’m looking forward to showcasing some of our team’s favorite things about our island home and giving away an amazing St. Croix experience,” adds Gutierrez.
How it all started
Gutierrez bought two used vehicles back before Hurricane Hugo with the intention to re-sell them. In the process of fixing them up, he had the idea to try his hand at renting them. Unfortunately, he lost one of the cars in Hugo, but that didn’t stop him. Within two years, he was able to invest in 10 new cars. Now Centerline maintains a fleet of several hundred late model vehicles and employs more than 20 team members.
