They are the best part of being hit by another vehicle

4 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 05, 2017

Acorn rentals was prompt and friendly. They organised the delivery of a replacement vehicle the day after I gave them all the details of the accident and at fault party.
I received a 2017 Toyota RAV4 for the as-like replacement of my damaged SUV. Car was clean and pretty much brand new. Dropping off the vehicle at the panel beater where my car was being repaired where they would later collect, meant I could drive away my repaired car without a worry or hassle of dropping the car back at their depot. Highly recommended

I wish my insurance company had told me about ur service or the panel beaters could have told me sooner. They also did not advise me the my car was unroadworthy.

Good clean car

Impressed with your service, and I received a clean car but I was told I was receiving a 4WD and I did not get one. This did cause me some inconvenience. Will be double checking in future.

Very easy to organise my free rental from a no-fault accident, customer service was great and kept me informed all the way to make sure I knew when the car was going to be delivered and picked up, car was serviceable. Thanks again for all your help when I needed it most!

Great service. Had a car the next day after my accident. Easy to book and deal with. Nothing was to much. So glad that there is a service like this.

Great service and prompt in delivery

4 out of 5, reviewed on Apr 12, 2017

I was happy to get a loan car but what kill the ratings was when I got a call from you saying I had to ring you guys at the time I returned the vehicle back at 4pm. I was not impressed with the call as it sounded as though I was not trusted. I spoke to the smash repairer and she said she will ring them in the morning. Again I got a call the next morning about the return of the vehicle. I think these girls that rang me needs a bit of training in being a little bit more polite.

Smooth processing

4 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 19, 2017

Simple online application process, quick approval with all info supplied, vehicle arrived as my car was booked in for repair and being able to leave it at the repairers once the job was done made the collection of my car very easy.

Great offering for those in need

4 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 19, 2017

This was of great use for me as I have 2 small children who are reliant upon me to take them to school and out of school activities...Only issue I had was I was told to provide claim no. of other driver and that you would sort everything out, however I had to gather all the information. Suggest a better service is if you could deal directly with other claimant's insurer on our behalf...I don't understand why all that information other than claim no. Of other driver was needed.

Accident Car Rental

4 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 09, 2017

It was very simple to deal with Acorn Rentals. Process was easy, staff were professional. The only downpoint was its advertised like for like rental replacement which is not the case. But overall, very good to deal with. Would definitely deal with them in future.

Happy with the service. Would use again

4 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 27, 2017

A breeze to book. Put in my application on a Sunday and received a car the next day. They weren't able to deliver the car to where I was staying because of short staff. But they arranged a Uber to pick me up and drop me at the depot at no cost to me. The car itself was clean, new and similar to my personal car. The only negative I would say about the car was the smell inside. Not sure what spray they use to make it smell like a brand new car, but it was too strong. Other than that I have no complaints, from first contact to the car being picked up. I would definitely use them again.

Mostly good

Booking was easy, car was on time, car drove well, but back right tyre was quite flat 1.4 bar. I discovered this on Monday pm. This should have been checked before hand over as it's quite dangerous.

Great service

Very easy to create a booking.
Followup service could have been better but was good nonetheless
The car was a Corolla and the quality was great but was not an SUV as promised.

Thank goodness for this arrangement.

Booking was a major hassle - took too long to book & too long to arrange after that. I would have thought you could have got all the info I was asked about the other drivers & vehicles involved from the Insurance Claim data.
However, once the vehicle was organised, everything went very smoothly after that. Replacement car was great but I was glad to get mine back. The acorn delivery guys were a pleasure to deal with. No complaints there.

It was very good service and booking was easy. The car was in good quality but the only thing was it only had half a tank of petrol and I had to return it with a full tank. I was told that it had a full tank when it left the depot to echuca. That's a lot of petrol that it used from melbourne to echuca and I don't think a new car would even use that much fuel. Everything else was perfect. Thank you.
