The customer service rep was precise in her information. Basically took my license, typed out info then handed me the keys. No extra communications. At this location you pick up the car yourself from a very dim lit garage. When I returned the car I told her the car was not clean. Her response was we video the car before it goes out. I said the car was sandy, including in the backseat, between the seats. Her reply was we video before it goes out. I said no, when I picked up the car it had sand all inside the vehicle. Again, her response was we video the car before it goes out and adjust amount if necessary. What? So they take videos instead of cleaning it?

Pick up and drop off we’re simple and efficient. Discovered a tire had a nail in it and was leaking. Called their 1-800 number and they arranged for me to swap out the car. Very satisfied with their response.
