They were great. The car was very nice and had all purpose tires which came in handy. Easy to get a hold of and very flexible. I didn't have time to fill the car but they were very cool about it and they managed to get me to my flight just on time when I was running late. THANK YOU!!

Rick and Sunil helped me with the rental (pickup as well as return) and they were excellent. Amazing customer service and everything was smooth and effortless. They really went out of their way to make sure everything was set up for me and I really appreciate it. I was apprehensive booking this trip and only booked them because Hertz was sold out, but to be honest I saved money and had a better experience. Knowing this I would totally book again with West Coast Rentals instead of with Hertz. Well done Rick and Sunil! Oh and pro tip: When they pick you up from the airport; their van may have a red Economy Rentals sign on it. This confused me for a second but apparently it's an affiliated company and operate in conjunction with West Coast Rentals.
