Great for small moves or large crowds. Comfortably SEAT 7 ADULTS or remove seats for MORE CARGO SPACE THAN A PICK-UP TRUCK. Runs great. But keep in mind it is a vehicle that has been used. High miles from former use as a Taxi but this required good maintenance up keep. Recent new paint when decommissioned as a Taxi. Radio works great sometimes. Other times, it doesn't work. Don't know why. So you might have a radio, or maybe not. Brand new pair of tires on the front.
PICK UP - I own and operate a Yellow Cab. If you need a way to the vehicle I can come to get you or have another cab get you and bring you to my Van. Meter rates apply.
LOCAL USE ONLY. Not to be used for trips outside of the Austin Metro area.

Ed was great. He was very easy to communicate with and very helpful. I was so happy to find a van to haul us all around so we could be together.
Reserving a minivan because family visiting from out of state. We have 2 cars, but preferred to ride together for the week. We planned to drive to San Antonio, but when we arrived to pick up the minivan (lock box instead of meeting owner in person), the minivan had the following issues:
1. Wouldn't start (lights wouldn't turn on so battery completely dead or electrical issue)
2. Right rear tire completely flat.
3. Needs vacuuming
4. Slight smell of smoke (Bic lighter in console).
5. I tried to call the owner, but no answer, so I left a message, then called Turo to cancel and refund.
On to San Antonio in our two cars. Too bad we wasted an hour of our day driving across town to retrieve this vehicle. The owner should perform a basic vehicle check before each rental to ensure it is road ready and clean.
Awesome! This was my first experience with Turo and I will definitely look to rent again! Edmund was laid back and his van is a value. I was riding solo this trip, but it would be great for a family, kids, or floaties for the swimming hole, plenty of room! Thanks!
First, understand that for the price you get a great large vehicle. Yes it has 330k+ miles and was a former taxi. As you can expect small things like a slow rear driverside tire leak, power steering leak, power doorlock issues, no radio are small issues. We saved almost $400 over our normal rental period (10 day).
The rig runs great with no dangerous issues. I drove from Austin to San Antonio to Spicewood to Austin in one day and it was a great drive.
I can say we did have 1 hiccup when the battery was dead but Ed saved the day coming out quite quickly with a new (very good) battery. The issue for you next renters is that the key will pull out without actually being off. Even when it shows off if you pulled it out just right the electrical will stay on. So if when you get out the bell dings check your key marking.
It was very clean, smelled great, my wife & baby rode in it and I had no qualms about it. It was washed, gassed, & vacuumed when I picked it up. Another huge + was that Ed picked us up at the airport & drove us to our hotel ( for a small fee) so we didn't have to pick it up after flying in 5 hours.
Overall my experience was a 5* because I knew what I was getting. Don't kid yourself into thinking this is a luxury rig, it's a safe minivan with no extras for much cheaper then a rental agency.
