Only lost points because I reserved a Corolla and got a Fusion. It was fine, but not what was expected.

The van was in generally great shape but upon returning, I advised the agent that one tire was possibly out of balance. Vehicle vibrated at around 65mph

Very pleased with the costumer service. Agents were pleasant, helpful, and accommodating. I would most certainly use the company again, as well as recommend it to others. Vehicle was great. As advertised, and clean, with no issues.

The vehicle I was given did not score a 10 but it probably is the best score since it was a last minute on-site switch request. The employee accommodated me and cleared out some remnants of broken glass. Had he had more time to clean it, I am sure it would have truly been a 10. I additionally needed the seats to be removed, which he helped me. Iabsolutely would recommend this company for the customer service, availability of vehicles, and flexibility, and finally smoothness of transaction. The 2 gentlemen working the day of my rental provided great service to other customers at the time I rented my vehicle. The customers seemed to enjoy their experience. I would rent at this location/company again.

I came in early to rent my car (which I had originally done electronically) and the sales associates were very helpful and let me rent the car about an hour early. I appreciated their flexibility and ability to work with me. This wasthe first time I rented a car and my experience at rent-a-wreck went smoothly and everyone was very helpful in answering my questions. Thank you and peace to you!

I am from the neighborhood (Annex). In all ways, this Doherty's is so convenient for me, and the courtesy extended by the staff was phenomenal. I have rented from Doherty's before, for a moving truck; that went very well also, service and clean truck both A+++ then. More recently, this time, I could not have asked for a more considerate staff care, and the car, while a bit smoky from a previous renter, was clean, in good repair, and got me to my three day conference safelyand on time. A++++
