Ford F-150 2008
Truck broke down but still giving this a 5 star because shit happens and I’m not here to ruin a mans business. Rented from him before and had no issues. Money was refunded, a little bit of inconvenience but I would still rent from him again. Positive it wasn’t negligence, no one knows when a starter goes out or whatever electrical problem was going on. Crisis averted and life moves on. Good luck
Travis Jay G. - June 23, 2019

Best Houston driving roads

Enchanted Rock

Traverse the gorgeous pink granite mountain at sunset for magical views and stargazing at night. Legend has it that staying overnight leads to a surreal experience, like becoming invisible.

Brazos Bend State Park

Take your Houston truck rental alternative for a quick 45-minute drive to this state park and prepare yourself for alligator sightings when wandering the trails.

Big Thicket

Marvel at the diverse species of trees, ferns, and flowering plants at this thickly forested area. Watch your step, as the park is home to a few groups of beautiful yet venomous snakes.
