My experience ended in Tears
Do not use this company if you are arriving or departing outside there business hours!
A long, horrific story cut short . Our experience was the worse, especially with two children, one being as young as 10months old! Mark, the gentleman who we did see in person was great to us. But the company, their lack of information, follow up & communication had made me so mad.

Got stung $360 for a minor repair was only picked up a one day after I returned the car
On the last and final occasion I used carhood, my (fully insured) vehicle was checked for damage on return and ok'd. A day later I was informed there was a mark (see the image they send me: it looks like a stone chip) on the door and they were withholding my $500 deposit.
This what the insurance company wrote to me:
"We have been advised by Carhood Brisbane that the vehicle you recently returned from rent sustained new damage during your rental period. The damage is located on the driver's door. Please see attached photo.
"For this reason we...
Was all good until I got the Toll Bill
Everything leadinh up to the hire, and during the hire was great. Was told I'd be billed for tolls 4-6 weeks later, was told should be between $5-$10, got billed 4 times to a total of $75.
Have tried emailing, website chat, calling, and had no result, no answer from email and the chat guy said they'll look into it.

Just wondering has anyone who rented their car to Carhood being paid?
I doubt any one got paid from carhood. Do not leave your car there at all. They just make money out of the car. Never pay you.
I have left my car there 3 times now and it hasn't been rented out so i cannot speak personally about not getting paid for rent however I have read a number of other reviews that claim they haven't been paid or had to wait a long time.
My car was rented out for 3 weeks in August 2018, so 1 year ago and still no payment! I would strongly discourage anyone from using this service to rent their car out.
