Excellent price. Good service.
Didn't find another car for this price. The only issue I had was that when I called for the shuttle from the airport, nobody picked the call even when i tried 3 times over about 10 mins. And then I was picked about 25 mins later. All together it took 40 mins since I first tried to call to when I was picked up. Everything else was great.
Great car. Friendly service
Loved the car - Subaru Liberty. Easy to drive and lots of room. The boot was extra large so plenty of room for luggage.
Service was great.
The only downside was that its hard to contact anyone for information.
Car was what we booked and service was good. bond was returned the next day and everything went well. Probably only thing was we tried calling before 9am and the phone wasnt answered as we needed the address as our booking had their new address and they hadnt shifted there yet
Very good car rental, but expensive tolls
Great little car, and a good price if you take the most basic car insurance (largest excess).
I discovered just before pickup that Carhood's management of tolls makes them expensive, so I had to drive through Brisbane's inner city bypass (which is slow) in order to avoid a hefty toll on the Gateway Bridge.
Service was prompt and effecient and found all the processes went very smoothly.
I did book a certain vehicle and found I received the same and it was a delight to drive and served our needs perfectly.
We used the vehicle for getting us around Melbourne for attending a funeral and visiting family and friends.
Value for money
We were picked up promptly. Informed of our responsibilities, the customer service was good.
The vehicle wasn't the one we expected but we were upgraded to a better car at no extra cost. We wer wuite happy.
I use Carhood for the reasonable pricing all the time
The Team in Brisbane are great. However I dont think its fair to keep changing where their office/dropoff is. I couldn't find where to park the car when I dropped back. Not the Brisbane Team's fault but luckily I had a mobile phone number in my phone and was able to call them after hours, at 3pm to find out where the cars were to be dropped off. There was no signage wasn't there because they were in transition. I realise the Head Office is responsible for their office. Also when the hours are cut short it means you need to uber to the airport, with the extra cost you can also weigh that up and get a car from the airport.
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
Eco friendly Carshsre
Reasonably simple and very cost effective car rental for multiple short distance commutes. It is a great example of the gig economy and conventional business intersecting to reduce consumer pricing sustainably.
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.
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
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...
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.
A Good Result
Everything was handled professionally and courteously by competent staff. The car provided was ideal for the city travel and was comfortable for travel for long periods. The service will be used again.
Value for money, recommended if you want a budget rental.
Customer service is great.
Handled well for the bond and other payment.
Vehicle changed but got an email notification.
I use the vehicle for site seeing, it quite meet my needs.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Great customer service
Their customer service couldn't be faulted, my only complaint would be that they were quite a way from the airport, and we wasted a lot of time getting to and from the airport.
Friendly, helpful service
Customer service was friendly and obliging. The car was what I expected & it was fine. Great to be dropped off at the airport by a happy, friendly person. I will recommend this service to others.
Good customer service but the car charging port wrecked my life.
The charging port was not working and it wrecked my life. Customer service was very good and it was cheap.
I recommend to others this company as well.
Thank you all.
We have no experience with hiring at this stage, but have shared our car for hire. It has been well taken care of and is so helpful to be taken where you need to go before a holiday. On return, a lovely clean car awaits to just drive away. Any profit from having loaned out the car is a wonderful bonus.

A perfect way to start and end a great holiday!
We haven't hired a car from Carhood as yet but several times we've shared our cars for hire! Everything has been great and to then come home and get an email telling you the little extra profit you've made with the hire puts a smile on your face and it may have paid for that night out on the town whilst away!
Questions & Answers
Why this Carhood.com.au can not be log in, its this company broken?
We had some technical difficulties the past days which is why our site was down. It is already available now.
i notice you can answer questions ... answer positive feedback but when people ask about where our money is there are no longer answers ... yet you continue to takepeoples cars rent them out and receivfe money for them. WHERE ARE OUR PAYMENTS
How can I access the so called "web chat" which doesn't seem to be on the home page? (whether i am logged in or not - tried IE/FF/Chrome during 9-5) I have issues with the payments, fees and damage claim...
Emails are not getting answered, and calling them just get hung up and pointed to a "web chat" which i can't find.
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.
