During the pandemic a lot of people have had to change the way they make a living and we’ve all heard about the big quit so it’s kind of surprising to hear about an entire neighborhood being turned upside down by one guy and his company . Of course, that doesn’t involve typing on his keyboard in his home office or selling hand-painted action figures in his basement. No, he runs a car rental business from his home.
You may be wondering what type of house this is. If he’s running it in a 10,000 square foot (929 m²) mansion, then why is that even a story? And if he’s running it from a quadruplex with a single dedicated parking spot, he’s clearly wrong. Instead of either extreme, Yosef Rabinovitz, the owner of Take It EZ LLC, the company in question, owns a 1,500 square foot (139 m²) single-family home in Hollywood, Florida.
Outside of this house, he rents many vehicles, including a Jeep Grand Cherokee, a Chevrolet Corvette, and a few Teslas as well. What’s more interesting is that he rents it all out at prices that seem pretty reasonable. The Jeep is only $75 while the Corvette is $125 and the Tesla splits the difference at $99.

These are low prices for such an esteemed metal. And it’s those same prices that have drawn so much business to Rabinovitz that the neighbors are pissed. Neighborhood resident Tim Flasher says Local 10 News “We deal with Airbnbs everywhere, it’s hard to live here, things have changed so much since 1970… Now we have a car rental place. And after? My house is for sale right now. I’m done with it.”
Flasher says he noticed the company because of the heavier traffic on the street and the fact that he often sees cars being washed. “Well, there was a lot of traffic in the neighborhood and on the street and I noticed that they were washing cars, three or four at a time, on the road and at the house,” he said. he declares.
Strangely, when confronted with the situation by Local 10 News, Rabinovitz denied any knowledge of the company, saying “What car rental company?” I do not do it. while actively cleaning the previously mentioned Jeep Grand Cherokee. Florida, a state notoriously lax when it comes to infringing on the freedoms of its citizens, recently passed a law that prevents local governments like Hollywood’s from regulating home-based businesses. We wonder what Mr. Flasher thinks of this law.
