Great Host vehicle was clean he was very understanding about my car being in the shop I had no problems 😊 that's why I extended my trip another week didn't mind spending extra money with someone who showed effort and pride in his vehicle I will definitely recommend him and rent from him again
It was a fun experience driving this beauty! They have the car super clean for you for your trip! I really recommend it. I will be definitely be renting from them again soon! Thank you!
Kyle might be the most reasonable man I've met in a long time. He was very understanding and easy to work with. I felt very taken care of. I'd rent any vehicle from this guy, but on top of great service, he offers an excellent ride. My daughter and I had a great time "going so fast my tummy is in the seat" she would say. Her giggle and smiles were well worth the price I paid. Kyle, thank you.
My 1st rental through Turo since my Enterprise reservation canceled at last minute due to no cars being available & my car in the shop. With very short short notice, I was able to rent Juan’s car hassle free. I highly recommend Juan. He’s very responsive, car was very clean inside & out. This was an Excellent car & very well maintained. I will definitely rent through him again! Thank you! You made my weekend 😊
