Viking's Ship Rentals





Banner.jpg

Viking’s Ship Rentals (VSR) was established in 2944 by Bjørn Farmann, also known as Viking. We offer ship rentals and other services in two star systems: Terra and Sol. So if you need a ship in a hurry, you know where to go! We’ll be happy to help you with a fine ship to rent.

We have ships of all types and sizes which you can rent. Maybe you just want to try a ship before you buy? Perhaps you want to try some exploring, trading or mining for a few days to see if you like it? Or you lost your ship and must wait to buy a new one? Regardless of your needs we have the right ship for you!

For the times when you need security escort, we offer that through trusted affiliates, such as Windbourne Highlanders and Rogue Squadron. You can mount overclocked (or underclocked) weapons on the rental ship, which we buy from Draken Intergalactic. When you're stuck in the middle of nowhere we try to help our customers with towing, refueling and repairs, through our Windbourne Highlanders. So we have you covered on most areas.

We also buy rare or high-end weapons and equipment. And we buy good security intelligence info for the best prices in the universe. Go to us first and you'll be glad you did.

You’re welcome to drop by anytime for a chat and a cup of coffee or tea!

Corp. page: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/orgs/VSR



You can register as Customer in VSR now.

What's in it for you?


The deal becomes sweeter by the day, as VSR makes agreements with more and more partners to get you more benefits and treats. As a customer you will receive rebates, coupons, vouchers, invitations to private parties, and other special offers only for registered customers! There'll be no spamming from us. We'll announce offers only in a central place on our corp. page. Vouchers are personal and will therefore be sent to you by PM or email though.

What's in it for us?


We'd like to know our customers better, to reduce the risks we're taking of renting out ships in a dangerous universe. Therefore, we want to check our customers background. By registering you allow us to scan your records for a reputation check. If we can't do this scan without your specific authorization, you agree to give us such authorization on demand. That's it. We only want to know who you are so we can reduce our risks.

Welcome!

    CFT_Banner.jpg

    CFT-Logo.png
    Another Affiliate Partner is The Confederation of Free Traders (CFT) which is an association of independent merchants and cargo haulers. It's a network of Free Traders which has only one rule: Honesty and reliability between its members. Members may help or work with other members, or not, but must always act honestly toward other CFT members. Basicly that means a member must not perform piracy, fraud, or behave abusive against a fellow member. When cooperating with other members, they must also reveal their intentions about the concrete business run and the contents of their cargo - if asked about this.

    A short overview from the Charter in their Org. page:

    "CFT will not direct your game actions, nor will it censure your game actions.
    CFT is not a closed shop, you can be in other organizations and squadrons alongside the federation.
    CFT affiliates need not support fellow affiliates just because they are in the same federation.
    CFT affiliates can be in active competition between each other depending on the prevailing conditions at the time.
    CFT will attempt to maintain a database of members and pilots with which members have dealt and information on them regarding their reliability, honesty, courtesy, speed, and other items as seems appropriate. Available to Members.
    CFT will try to act as a platform for coordination of major lucrative events, such as convoys, to benefit its members. This includes but is not limited to informing about the event, negotiating escorts and planning routes."


    If you're a trader / merchant / cargo hauler then you should check out CFT. It's a great and unique community with its loose member affiliation structure yet it has strong fellowship bonds between members.

    CFT members receives 15% rebate on ship rental in VSR. If you're not a CFT member then we can arrange an application for you in our shop and you'll get the rebate right away, on your first rental with us.

    DRAKEN-Banner.jpg

    DRAKEN-Logo.png
    Draken Intergalactic (DRAKEN) overclocks and underclocks weapons in various degrees. As an Affiliate Partner DRAKEN will deliver such weapons to VSR for mounting on rental ships, if the customer wants it. DRAKEN will also deliver munitions, upgrade parts, and other cool things to us. In addition, it'll be possible for our customers to buy these weapons.

    Here's what Draken Intergalactic say about themselves:

    "For all your Over Clocking Needs use DRAKEN INTERGALACTIC

    Over clocking comes in 5 levels
    DI1 is a stand OC that just freshens up the weapon or component
    DI2 is a slight increase with little impact on durability
    DI3 is a moderate OC that is stable and provides reliable output
    DI4 is a high yeild OC that sacrifices durability for performance
    DI5 is a highly unstable OC that gives the maximum output but has NO guarantee after any use

    We also offer Under Clocking for those who want to maximize stealth or extend usage of items.

    We can also customize your parts with our IN HANGAR SERVICE. This service includes having one of our engineers come to your site and ReClocking your parts that you have in inventory. This allows for significant savings to the customer as there is only a charge for work preformed and no additional cost for the raw parts. An added benefit to having an engineer on site at you hangar is when you want to ReClock multiple parts on a single ship our engineers will balance the systems to preform in unison."


    We are very happy to have Draken Intergalactic aboard with us!

    WINDBOURNE-Logo.png
    What do you get when you give space ships to a bunch of guys with bagpipes and skirts?

    A very tough wing of Highlanders who will never leave your side! When you need an escort, scout, or other security mission, you can't go wrong with these guys. Their three main principles are Honour, Courage, and Loyalty. That should tell you all you want to know about them. You can trust them to do their job protecting you and your business. Windbourne Highlanders (WINDBOURNE) is their name. Protection is their business.

    VSR can arrange for you to get Windbourne security when you need it. You even get a 10% discount on escort from Windbourne when you use a VSR rental ship. And if you're an active Windbourne member you get an additional 15% discount/rebate on the total rental price from us. We can even help you with filling in the member application to Windbourne in our shop.

    Windbourne also offers towing, refueling, rescue, repairs, and other services you may need in a hurry.

    From their RSI page:

    "We are a band of brothers and sisters, riding the Winds of Battle in these unstable times. Sworn to protect each other and our families, we offer up our services as mercenaries, earning the money needed in order to stay independent and free. We keep to a strict code of honour in our dealings with each other and our customers, as we strive to be the greatest and best mercenary corps in all the universe.

    We are the Windbourne Highlanders.

    The Winds shall carry us on!"

    RSQ_Banner.png

    RSQ-Logo.png
    When dealing with pirates and other criminals, no one does it better than Rogue Squadron (RSQ). They offer a wide range of PMC services to us and our customers, as a trusted Affiliate Partner. As a customer you can enjoy protection of your mining operation, trade routes, exploration travels, or whatever, through their escort and scout services. VSR will also use them as bounty hunters and mercenaries for those times when it's needed. Rogue Squaron shares many principles and business morale with VSR. We're both very anti-pirate and community-oriented, for instance. It's good to know we have a rock solid partner with us into the dark and scary galaxy.

    Rogue Squadron have many operational areas, where some of them are:

    • Civilian Defense & Public Services
    • Military & Mercenary Contract Work
    • Search & Destroy Operations


    They say about themselves:

    "We aren’t just a generic catch-all band of flying aces. We do not and will not support or condone space piracy, raids, or the harassment of other pilots in the game universe. Our presence in the PU will be felt through our support of the Star Citizen community in our efforts keeping players safe from piracy, civilian protection from PVE and PVP events, and in patrolling the areas of space where the NPC UEE military security has little or no presence. We’re sort of like the Good Guy Space Vigilantes, and we're here to help you!"

    Read more about them in their Org. page: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/orgs/RSQ

    RSQ members receives 15% discount on ship rental in VSR. If you're not a RSQ member then we can arrange an application for you in our shop and you'll get the rebate right away, on your first rental with us.

    Just stopping in to let everyone know Viking ship rentals will be who I use when my ship is down or if I need a special ship for an extra run.

    How do you intend stopping people from just stealing the ship after you rent it to them? It seems probable that there won't be an in-game mechanic to facilitate renting, so it'll all be entirely player-dependant - in which case there's little to stop them flying off to Spider or whatever in a new 325a.

    I won't rent out ships if the game doesn't support renting. But CIG have said there will be in-game renting mechanics, at least on a couple of occations. However, when it comes into the game is another question. So I may have to wait a while after the game has been released to open the shop. :)

    It will fill a needed service for those folks that don't want to own a specific ship but want to try them out or have an occasion of need. I think it's a great service idea.

    We will see how the game mechanics for renting is designed. It's a bit too early to say anything for certain about the scenario you ask. I would guess that if I had many customers like that I maybe had to take a deposit. Anyway, all the ships are with LTI so at least I'd get the ship back.

    I think it's a great alternative if any one has to wait on a ship they've lost and would prefer having a ship to work with versus working on someones ship.

    CAS_Banner.jpg

    CAS is one of VSR's most trusted Affiliate Partners. It's like an Auto Club in space, where your membership gets you service when you need it most. They provide services like towing, refueling, rescue, repairs, escort, and more for their members. On their Org. page we find this quote:

    "Need a spare part? A tow? Out of ammo? Out of gas? No problem with CAS! Member service providers fly every ship in the ‘Verse from militarized civilian fighters to tankers and corvettes. As a member, just contact dispatch and we’ll route one to you ASAP!"

    We have a deal with CAS that secures CAS members 15% rebate on ship rental in VSR. If you're stuck in the middle of nowhere you call us and tell where you are, then we call on CAS for them to help you with their expertise and special equipment. Or you can call CAS directly yourself, of course. As a CAS member you have that right. As a VSR customer we also help you with this. If CAS can't be reached, we in VSR go to your aid ourselves.

    CAS is an organization you want to have a membership in, before you set out into the unknown of space! You never know what can happen to you or the ship you're flying. Better be prepared and have someone to help you when you need it badly.

    You're not a CAS member you say? No problem. You can sign up with them right here in our office and get the 15% rebate right away.

    Very Nice !!!

    Good luck with your business VIking! Hereby an endorsement: As an original backer, Viking has been known an honest and upstanding person, his firm stance against piracy and theft speak of his integrity as a potential trader. 5+++++ stars :-)

    QFT...and in RL as well. We've done a bit of ship trading, in the past. If you EVER have a ship to sell, check with him first. If he offers to buy it, he will be 100% reliable. If he doesn't want/need it, he can likely steer you to someone else you can sell it to with no fear of being scammed. He does tend to only associate with the most honest and honorable of folks, after all.

    BTW, my character will be working for VSR ingame as well as crewing Viking's Idris, the UES Odin, when needed. I liked the guy so much, I asked him for a job. Hopefully, he'll stick my character on Earth, so I can hang out in O'Halloran's Irish Pub in NYC, after work. Of course, I'll also be flying my own ships when I get the chance, but SC is turning out to be SO much more than just flying around, for me. Who knew? :D
