"Monday Oct 20th made reservations for an intermediate size car for piup on Friday oct 24th at 9am. Told them we were going to south florida. Wanted to be comfortable and good on gas." When we arrived on Friday to pick up our car, we were told they only has a mini van and a pickup trk available. I asked how can that be when a reservation was made. They replied that they were overbooked. They tried to call people that were due to return vehicles, but could not get a hold of anyone. We went over to
to see if they had anything at last minute and did not. We ended up using our own truck to travel, thank god the price on gas had gone down.

"It was about $150 for 4 days of rental. The quality of the product was good. They have a clean product. There was easy accessibility to the airport. The service was good.

"I reserved an SUV to be picked up at the Boston airport and was quoted a price for a Ford
which is their group W vehicle which included the option of fuel service" for $530.10 plus taxes and fees bringing it it to a total of $577.56. The actual charge was $659.02. When I called their national hot line I'm wast told that my estimate did not include the fuel service option, because each vehicles tank is of a different size. However on my estimate it says that the car is a class W it included the option of fuel service and the price was $530.10. Nowhere in the estimate does it say that the fuel service will be in addition to the prices quoted on the estimate. Since the fuel service charge was $69 and the overcharge was $81.46no one explained why there was a difference. My biggest complaint is that when you get an estimate and you include an option, then that is what it's going to cost unless there's a change. I feel their estimate and final billing are highly deceptive and can hardly be considered fair.

I called several different rental services regarding renting a four wheel drive vehicle. We were going to be traveling through some rough sandy terrain. I called

looking for a four wheel drive or a least an all wheel drive vehicle. They couldn't guarantee a four wheel drive, but said it would at least be an all wheel drive.

told me this wouldn't be a problem after I stressed that it is a must that the vehicle be either a four wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicle. We rented a house for a week on the outer banks of North

had rented us a standard drive SUV and not an all wheel or four wheel drive. My son had to pay $400 to get the vehicle towed. When I called
Hayward Rental Car Companies Provider Name Locked
, they pretty much blamed me and said the problem could have been avoided if I provided the correct code. I had to make several calls and find out what I needed to do to get reimbursed for the towing, I was told I needed to contact customer service to make my request. The problem however is that I have misplaced the receipt and haven't been able to get the towing company to send me a copy of the receipt so that I can request reimbursement for the $400 fee. I had to make several calls before I could even get to customer service, which was frustrating. I feel lied to after asking if the vehicle was four or all wheel drive, I specifically asked how to put the vehicle into four or all wheel drive mode and was assured that the vehicle would recognize the change in terrain and automatically go into the alternate drive mode, but that wasn't the case.

The experience started well. The body repair shop called them when I arrived and after completing the paperwork there, Enterprise had someone to pick me up within 5 minutes. Their office is less than 5 minutes from where we were. On the way to Enterprise, the driver informed me that he had to pick up someone else on the way. We stopped at another body repair shop in the area and waited over 20 minutes for that person to complete her business with that shop. Given the short distance I think they should have gone ahead and taken me to their store and gone back and picked her up. After we finally arrived at Enterprise having taken 30 minutes for a 5 minute trip, the rep assured me that they had a mid-size car ready for me and they would get it ready. Why wasn't it ready when I got there? They had a 1/2 hour notice!! I waited 15 minutes for them to prep that car before being informed that it was not available and they had another mid-size car for me. A mid-size car is what the insurance company had approved paying for and Enterprise had known for 4 days that was what I was expecting. After waiting another 10 minutes they pulled up with a Chevrolet
Hayward Rental Car Companies Provider Name Locked
. If you want to Google that vehicle, everything you see says it is a compact car, but I didn't need Google to see with my own eyes that it was not a mid-size car. They insisted that it was. By that point, I was too worn out to argue. I just signed and left. They can rest assured I would not use them again if I was given a choice. I suspect that because of their location near several body shops, that trade is most of their business and they consider the insurance companies their customers. Their service is exceptionally bad and I definitely recommend staying away from them if you can.
I wrote the first part of this review based on the experience when I got the rental car. I had originally rated all F's across the board. However, the experience when I went to turn the car in and had them take me to the body shop to get my car was exceptionally good. I could not have asked for better service. The rep was a different one than the first time so the service here is clearly dependent on who helps you. If I had based my rating on my last experience it would have been all A's. That being said, given my initial experience, I still would be hesitant to use them again. How do I know which experience to expect?

, the representative was exceptionally helpful. He got me a wonderful car. Showed me all of the gadgets I may not have been previously familiar with. He tried to accommodate the hours that I needed to bring it back. He went the extra yard to be helpful.

It wasn't a good experience at all. The first problem was that they opened 45 minutes late which was frustrating since I had a schedule to keep, and the gentleman opening the store didn't seem to care about the delay. The car itself wasn't clean either.

I don't know where Enterprise gets their high caliber workers, but I have always been amazed by the quality of their employees at all the locations at which I have rented.
On this occasion I rented a car for about 10 days while a car was in collision shop.

, the young man who helped me on the rental and on the return at the end of the rental, was just great. He was polite, smart and helpful. The manager was also helpful. He interjected into my conversation, with
Hayward Rental Car Companies Provider Name Locked
, that I might want to try a pick-up truck, which was larger and more comfortable than the vehicle which I was considering. He was nice enough to upgrade me to a large pick-up truck for the same price as the smaller class vehicle. As I had a number of household errands which would be much easier with a pick-up truck, I took him up on his generous offer. Needless to say, ten days later after numerous beneficial trips in that truck, I was truly grateful.
When I returned the truck, I was fully expecting to get beaten up/charged for the condition of the truck which definitely was much muddier/dirtier than the shiny new truck which I rented. I was amazed and pleased when
Hayward Rental Car Companies Provider Name Locked
said, oh don't worry about that, that is just mud and we will clean it all up.
I should also mention their drop-off/pick-up service. When I dropped my car at the repair shop,
Hayward Rental Car Companies Provider Name Locked
picked me up about two minutes after I called for a ride. When I dropped off my rental, the head manager of the office, drove me to the collision center within about 30 seconds of my completing the paperwork. Literally, 30 seconds. He was also a very nice guy.
Really great location with wonderful staff and reasonable rates. I will definitely rent there again.

They researched the car, and said they have no report on damage to that car so you have to pay for it. At first they wanted 655.00 now they brought it down to 455.00 They rent cars, when you cant see the cars when its getting dark out. The parking lots are not well lit.
