Very poor. Borderline fraudulent. Didn't have the truck I reserved more than a month in advance, despite having confirmed it via phone just two days before pick-up. Tried to have me take a much larger truck instead (one that was impractical for the loading areas I needed to get in and out of). Finally (after 1 1/2 hrs of waiting) got me a truck from another location. Found out later they charged me two days rental on my credit card despite my returning the truck after one day, claiming I should have returned it to the other location (though they advised me to return it to their location). They were unresponsive to my complaints on the charges, evasive when asked, never returned calls and falsely tried to claim I had used 150 km of mileage when it was actually about 40 km. I DO NOT RECOMMEND. Not trustworthy, not honest and not worth your business.
