Good customer service, all the kinks were ironed out via email, instructions were simple and quite easy to follow, Payment was easy. And the Vehicle was exactly what I needed!
Excellent service would recommend and use again.
Collected from airport promptly and bond returned promptly. The car we received was exactly what I booked and met our families needs. We used the car for a holiday to visit family.
Very polite and helpful staff. Payment handled very well.
I was expecting a different car.
I used to car to attend to a three day conference. Everything was fine. After all i was satisfied.
Good cheap vehicle hire
Used car for running around and visiting hospital within the Sutherland shire. Would definitely use again. Only criticism is car smelt stale. Like someone had carried fried food in it
October 2nd 2019 Update: Great car
The service was great. I would of used it the next time I hired except your hours of operation were not convenient. The staff are friendly but when someone is flying in or out it's hard to organise a taxi to or from depot to airport when depot is closed
Brilliant !!! Highly Recommend !!
We hired our car through Carhood for 2 days in Brisbane withe the family and they were superb . Customer Service was second to none !! We got a free upgrade to a larger newer vehicle for free . No hassles , no problems . The smoothest car hiring process I have ever experienced
Will be back and will definitely use them again.
Avoid them like the plague
Before I had even stepped out of the car on returning it, they said I had caused damage without even checking any records. It felt like a complete set up.
When I tried to go through it with them they acted as I if I was the crook when every step has shown their behaviour to lack transparency, honesty, ethical let alone best practice.
They had already tried to prevent a cancellation contrary to the clearly written statement of free cancellation on the booking confirmation.
They make it impossible to deal on the phone and only have web chat and ...
Nice people, smooth experience on pick up and drop off. Perhaps be a little more clear on the trade-offs for toll payments. The car had some mileage but ran great.
Super excellent company to recommend friends to try. Everything that I needed, it went so well with the service supported. Got the same vehicle I hired and at the good time. The bond handle went very perfect.
Overall a good expereince
Good price for the car, car was great and drove well.
Person picking us up and dropping us off from the airport was quiet, not the best customer service, and location of the car for the drop off and pick up was a warehouse which made it feel a bit dodgy.
Car was good. Some improvements suggested with service
The VW Golf was good at base rate. After adding on insurance it became similar to other car rentals. The options for tolls was very frustrating. Can't just get the tolls charged to you like a normal car rental. Have to purchase a package or risk paying cost of tolls plus $38 admin fee. This was a problem for me when I accidentally went through a toll because I missed an exit. The Carhood office closed at 5pm which was a challenge for me, I couldn't get there in time. So I had to get a taxi to the airport from the Carhood depot. Overall the busi...nesss model is good but I found for the cost and inconvenience it may be better to get a car via normal car rental place. Have to pay a deposit also which gets refunded. Took a long time to get the paperwork done at the office and there were a few people to get though.
Perfect sized car
Good customer service
Yes bond was handled well
Yes we got the same vehicle that we booked
Personal travel and yes it met our needs as we only travelled around Ballarat and into Melbourne
We hired a small car for just the 2 of us.
It went really well. We drove it all weekend it was excellent on fuel. We would definitely hire again.
Great service and friendly team!
It is a great service to use. Thank you so much! Car was perfect. Perfectly clean. And all team members I spoke to on the phone or face to face where lovely.
There where a couple of things.
1. The tolls fee, we had the car for 4 days but only needed toll pass for 2 days yet had to pay for all 4days. (We didn’t end up using that option as the price ended up very expensive for no reason).
2. Opening time of the warehouse on a weekday. Please look at the time your warehouse opens on a weekday. 9am is extremely late when people are traveling. W...
Perfect in ever way!
Accommodating in every way! Effortless collection and drop off to the airport, the car was spotless and exactly as quoted. I will use Carhood again I’m the future and recommend them for your rental needs.
From the first phone call as I walked out of the airport I was impressed with the attitude and professionalism of the people I spoke to. The gentleman who drove the bus and picked me up was absolutely fantastic, such a positive bloke.
The car I booked was clean and tidy albeit a little older than I expected but nonetheless clean and tidy.
I only had a short trip and the car performed as well as I would have expected, definitely no complaints. I have already informed my staff to utilise the services of Car Hood when they next visit Melbourne.
