Darryl's response

The car pickup was throughly detailed in the pickup/return instructions. Mechanic went out to guest and completed the repair within an hour of arrival. Guest was given partial refund for inconvenience as well. There was plenty of parking available at time of return. Detailed options were sent during trip.
