This truck is nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. It has manual windows and manual locks, but it does have an automatic transmission! We got it when we bought our house as a fixer-upper. It is fantastic for runs to Home Depot as well as Ikea.
There are three seat belts across the front seat and two side-facing jump seats behind. Technically you could accommodate five people, but we wouldn't recommend it.
This truck does NOT have a trailer hitch, we will not be putting one on, and it should not be used for towing in any way. The bed cannot carrying more than 1000lbs, and you need to drive carefully with that much. And it is not 4WD.
Our location is in Arlington, convenient to Cambridge and Somerville. It's a 15 minute walk from Alewife, 7 minute walk from the 77 bus route, or you can take one of the buses from Alewife to the Lake Street stop that's less than two minutes away. Depending on timing I may be able to drop the car off at Alewife.

Drives well and renter was very helpful. Handled all my moving needs well. Amazing on gas. AC was not working though.
This was my second time renting Aletta's truck and I had another great experience. Aletta is super communicative and easy to coordinate with. And, as a bonus, she had straps in the back that I used to secure the dresser I was moving.
Pickup and return was super easy, truck was exactly what we needed to move a mattress. They provided some bungie cables that were helpful in tying it down. One taillight was out, but that was okay for a 1 day trip.
Above all I would put A+ top rating for the owner, Aletta. She is a fantastic person with great communications before and during the rental. She is also very nice in allowing us to return a little late as our moving were a little crazy and there was some traffic. On vehicle side, the car drives well as it have been well-maintained and has a quite powerful engine to support any typical load of items, it is an older model but definitely has everything you need from a pick-up, the owner even get a tarp for us so it's very handy to have one during the rainy days. Overall, it was enjoyable renting this Chevy and will def come back if need a truck in the future. Thank you!
