¡Celebramos 24 años de nuestra empresa! Te contamos cómo ha sido

En una época como la que nos ha tocado vivir en este momento, es bonito recordar y mandar ánimos a todos mientras pensamos en lo que hemos conseguido a lo largo de nuestras vidas, experiencias que nos permitirán salir adelante y volver a conquistar nuestras calles y carreteras pronto.

Tras 24 años en el sector, podemos decir que la frase típica española de «se hace camino al andar» es real.

Pues nosotros lo hemos ido comprobando a lo largo de nuestra trayectoria, empezando desde lo más humilde y trabajando duro para ayudar a disfrutar sus vacaciones a nuestros queridos clientes.

Todo comenzó el 6 de mayo de 1996 cuando apostamos por entrar en el sector del Rent a Car, algo que estaba empezando a ser explorado, lo hicimos con nuestro apreciado primer gerente de operaciones Roberto Joya.

Así que hablamos con él para recordar con sus palabras como fueron aquellos momentos, empezando bajo el nombre de Rent a Car Costa, que más tarde derivó a Autos Bahía, sin embargo la casualidad de tener el nombre como otra empresa situada en la provincia de Cádiz hizo que finalmente naciese «Bahia Sexi Rent a Car» para alejarse de las malas críticas que la empresa gaditana recibía y que nos afectaban erróneamente.

Pequeñas anécdotas como que todo se inició con una flota de tan solo 10 coches de los que todavía Roberto se acuerda:

  • Dos Seat Marbella
  • Cuatro Renault Twingo
  • Un Renault Clio
  • Dos Seat Ibiza
  • Un Megan

Y una oficina amueblada con una silla y mesa prestadas situada en la avenida Europa de Almuñécar, además todo el trabajo se realizaba a través de una máquina de escribir eléctrica. ¡Por aquel entonces los ordenadores todavía no estaban tan al alcance de los negocios!

Por aquel entonces la publicidad también era otra cosa, Roberto nos comenta la de veces que habían dado vueltas a cómo crear los folletos promocionales con los dibujos, letras y algunas indicaciones para que el diseñador de la imprenta pudiera tener una idea de lo que necesitaban.

También de los días en que teníamos nuestros coches aparcados con sus carteles de Remt me / Alquilame encima para que la gente al pasar pudiera ver nuestro negocio, cuando ya abrimos nuestra oficina actual situada a la entrada de Almuñecar en la avenida Blas Infante.

¡Y sobre todo de los grandes paseos hasta el lavadero de coches! Dado que en aquel momento no disponíamos de uno propio.

Siendo tan solo un equipo de dos personas, tanto Roberto como Manolo (nuestro CEO) no paraban de ir y venir entre Málaga y Almuñécar a recibir a clientes. Y no tan solo aprendiendo a manejarse en inglés o cualquier idioma que se les presentase, si no además conociendo y acercándose a vecinos que por aquel entonces necesitaban un coche de alquiler para ir a ver la jura de bandera de sus hijos.

Esto demuestra como los inicios siempre son duros pero con ilusión y mucho esfuerzo se pueden conseguir las cosas que soñamos.

Y gracias a esos pequeños pasos pudimos abrir nuestra oficina de La Herradura, en palabras de Roberto: dándole muchas horas y teniendo la paciencia de avanzar día a día aceptando que pueden haber momentos más buenos y otros más difíciles.

Tras Roberto siguió con la gestión del Rent a Car, Raymon Brenan quien acompañó a la empresa en lo que pueden ser los años de más crecimiento de Bahi Sexi Rent a Car.

Una de las cosas que más recuerda nuestro segundo gerente de operaciones es el ver cómo la cantidad de coches de nuestra flota iba subiendo, nos explica que para él esto era un orgullo.

Raymon venía del mundo del coche de alquiler, por lo que su experiencia y esfuerzo influyeron mucho en Bahia Sexi para poder evolucionar en una ciudad donde la competencia era latente y de grandes marcas.

Tras conseguir mejorar la oficina y también adquirir nuestro propio lavadero, Raymon nos recuerda la importancia que tiene cuidar al ciente y como esa familiaridad de nuestra empresa ha sido la que ha hecho de Bahia lo que es hoy en día.

Poco a poco la competencia en la zona fue disminuyendo a causa de la crisis y por suerte,  gracias al esfuerzo de nuestros trabajadores y a la confianza de los clientes, pudimos mantenernos a lo largo de ese difícil periodo de tiempo.

En la actualidad nuestro gerente de operaciones es Tomás Martos y nos cuenta como al llegar a Bahia Sexi Rent a Car, se sorprendió por el tipo de coche que teníamos.

Trabajamos con la marca Skoda desde hace muchos años, pero al principio en España esta marca no era tan conocida o usada por la competencia. Por lo tanto Tomás opinaba que quizás podía ser un punto en contra. Algo que con los años se ha desmentido pues a día de hoy son de los coches más fiables y eficientes.

Algo de lo que nuestro gerente se enorgullece es de la calidad que tenemos en automóviles, renovándolos anualmente para que los clientes puedan disfrutar de las mejores condiciones en sus vacaciones. Tomás nos cuenta que esto es un gran paso adelante para un Rent a Car que empezó con sólo dos empleados y apenas coches para alquilar.

Y por supuesto, nuestra llegada al aeropuerto de Málaga, donde tras años de trabajo conseguimos abrir una oficina para poder entregar coches a la llegada de los vuelos de los clientes.

Así como el trabajo que hacemos con grandes tour operadores de la zona, con los que trabajamos día a día durante la temporada para combinar nuestros servicios y conseguir crear las vacaciones perfectas para esas personas que lo están buscando.

De la mano de los tour operadores hemos podido abrirnos mercado en la zona de Torremolinos, Benalmádena, hasta llegar a Estepona. Una zona en la que esperamos crecer a lo largo del tiempo.

Queremos enviar a todos, a través de esta historia que es la nuestra, un mensaje de positividad en tiempos de cambio y de adaptarnos, una fase más de la vida que nos hace ser valientes, pacientes y sobre todo querer más a los nuestros.

Tenemos solo palabras de gratitud para nuestros empleados, los que han estado con nosotros y los que están a día de hoy, que con sus esfuerzo y carisma han hecho de Bahia Sexi Rent a Car lo que es hoy, una familia. Han sido mucho los años que nos han unido y las experiencias que hemos compartido, siempre agradecidos por tenerles a nuestro lado y por ver el cariño que tienen por el negocio, los clientes y la Costa del Sol.

Sigamos construyendo recuerdos juntos durante muchos años más, deseamos a todos que estén a salvo y que tengan mucha fuerza para volver a nuestras aficciones, rutinas, trabajos y esos viajes que nos están esperando.

¡Gracias y a por otro año más!
