Pros:

Car was available and ready. I regularly fly into a small airport in Bemedji, MN and then drive another 40 min to my destination in a very rural area. Rented cars from Hertz (no longer there) and Enterprise the previous 2 times, and both times they did not have cars available upon my arrival despite advance reservations. It's not exactly an area like NYC where you can go out and hail a cab. No car means your stranded. Thank you for not only taking a reservation, but keeping it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The staff at Bemidji airport were so helpful to “stage” my car for late arrival. It all worked out perfectly! Thank you for reaching out in advance to smooth the experience!
