"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
. 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?

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
Lakeland 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
Lakeland 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,
Lakeland 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.

rental office advising NO CAR for my confirmed rental, suggesting I call Customer Service @ 1-800-331-1212 which turned out to be an

phone number per

who took my call. I then had to get back on line to get the CORRECT phone number & called the Budget number, only to end up speaking with the most ignorant rep I had ever encountered. He advised they didn't open till 10:00 after asking "what i wanted him to do about it? I then ended up talking with a rep though the 1800-527-7000 who found me a car at a location for which I'd have to now find a ride to causing me to be late for a VERY Important event I have this afternoon. I find it EXTREMELY sad that BUDGET is not responsible for their confirmation but I'd be held COMPLETELY responsible to them for anything that would fall through on my end.

was responsive to my email request and agreed to deliver the cart to our home (there were others in NMB who would not). They delivered early on a Saturday morning, early enough that we were able to head out for breakfast. The cart was used, but clean and ready to go. We had no issues with it during the week of our rental.
