Hertz is selling off its fleet of cars after a slump in the rental car business caused the company to file for bankruptcy in May.

The company must sell 182,521 vehicles between June 1 and Dec. 31, 2020, according to a United States Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

ABC13 in Houston crunched some numbers earlier this summer and found that the Hertz fleet is listed at an average discount of 12% or more.

Hertz has been renting cars since 1918.
