I rented a cabana, 5 bikes and 2 paddle boards. The cabana couldn't go up for 3 days because of high winds. I understand the legal and safety issue, but would have appreciated a partial refund. 1 bike's chain was so rusty that it was not rideable for more than a few blocks. When a paddle board was put into the water, at the first stroke with the paddle it snapped in half. Upon calling Julie's I was told that if the property was not returned as it was provided there would be a charge to replace. No consideration that they are made of plastic and with salt and sand they degrade over time. We did not abuse the paddle - it was used by a beginner in the sound.

We rented bikes online on 6/2/20 for our 2 teenagers. They were to be delivered on 6/13 upon our arrival at Sunset Beach. We waited for the bikes and finally called. We were told that they were out for delivery. Waited about an hour, called again and was told the same thing. Called about an hour later and was told that they were delivered. We had no bikes. The employee said she would call her boss and get back to me. We never received a return call. Finally called again to cancel the order. The refund was made promptly, but we still had no bikes. We had to order from another place, but had to pick them up since the new place was don delivering for the day. Very disappointed with Julies and will not use them again.

I was looking for a place to rent a motorized wheelchair to go out on the beach and found Julie's Rentals. I messed up and set up the chair to be delivered a day too early. I discussed with the employe making the delivery, Randle Scott, and he agreed to come back the next day to deliver with no concerns. This was a great help to us - Randle was a pleasure to work with! We will use them again in the future!!!

My family contracted with Julie's Rentals for a beach cabana this week (May 20-26, 2017). The cabana was supposed to be put up on the beach somewhere near the front of the 39th Street boardwalk each morning and taken down in the evening. It is Thursday, and so far the cabana has been put up exactly once - Monday, May 21st -
and that day Julie's was late putting it out - the cabana did not appear until after 10am. On every other day there has been the excuse of "Too windy" when, in fact, the wind on only one day was higher than normal. Other cabana rental companies on Sunset Beach erected their cabanas for their customers every day so it has clearly not been a safety or a legal issue to erect cabanas in the amount of wind on Sunset Beach this week. AND to cap off this "service" Julie's Rentals has refused to refund the money for the days we did not have the cabana we rented.

My family has been coming to Sunset Beach and renting bikes and cabanas from Julie's Rentals for 20 years. Often in the past the bikes we rented and paid to have delivered to our house at the beach have not been delivered and we have had to go down to the Julie's Rentals shop to get them - a minor inconvenience and one we have overlooked time and time again. Bikes have also been un-rideable, un-adjustable, and so poor we have had to just set them aside as un-usable. Again -
a problem we have just ignored. We like to support local business wherever we are and be forgiving of their shortcomings. This year Julie's Rentals has rewarded our loyalty with "service" worthy of a huge corporate chain. Julie's Rentals obviously does not care any longer about maintaining even a marginal level of service and they don't care about their customers satisfaction at all. Maximizing profits in the short-term appears to be their focus these days. So we will not be patronizing Julie's Rentals anymore. Julie's Rentals provides little more than excuses for which you will be paying high non-refundable fees.

Good service. They dropped off the bike and then picked it up. They might want to consider expanding their range of bike types.

At Sunset Beach June 26-July 3 and rented a substantial number of bikes for family(9) and was shorted one adult bike. Texted that afternoon and when they finally replied, was told they would not come out and I should come to them and pick up one. On principal, told them it was their error and they should make it right. Saturday, no reply. Texted again more than once on Sunday, no reply. Finally went to their office/coffee shop on Monday morning. Crowd lined up to purchase coffee with one guy working that business. Another person on the phone, finally got her attention. Explained that I never received a bike. She shrugged and said she was not working over the weekend, kind of apologized, and told me to just grab one of the bikes from the rack out front. Never asked me my name or order details (great way to steal a bike if you are interested).

I was surprised at the low level of customer service and can only assume they have so much business, they obviously don’t need mine.

Happy to see there is another bike rental shop around the corner from Julie’s and will be sure to use them next summer.

I have rented from Julie's for over 25 years. The equipment was always in good condition. However, over the years it is obvious the management has changed. I rented 2 adult tricycles for the week of May 29-June 5, 2021 in March. I paid for them at that time because they were the only 2 left. In April, I received an invoice showing an unpaid balance and notice that the tricycles had been rented to someone else. I understand clerical errors sometimes occur but they refuse to refund my money! I have made numerous calls, emails (these are rarely answered) and left voicemails. I have been RUDELY treated and told they have no record of payment. I have even sent them a copy from my bank showing the payment cleared. I have spent what seems like hours trying to resolve this problem and recently filed a complaint with my bank. BUYER BEWARE! If you rent, make sure you have plenty of documentation. I trusted them and didn't ask for a confirmation number.

The linens we rented this past weekend were delivered on time. They looked and smelled wonderful. Will use Julies later this year when the whole family comes back for the summer.
