The woman at the desk was friendly and a joy to work with. Pickup was smooth and easy. Drop was even easier. I was met by a gentleman who checked the mileage, gas and I was done in 30 seconds.

Everything went smoothly and we picked up our car just fine. But the car itself, an intermediate level, a toyota carolla, was fairly stained and kind of unappealing. It was not a great bargain, so I think I could have done better.
