Rental car from Alaska Ferry dock?

We'll be in Juneau for just over 24 hours, arriving and departing by Alaska Marine Highway (in mid August). Could we arrange a rental car pick up from the Ferry dock and also leave the car there when we leave? It sounds like "Rent-a-Wreck" would be our first choice.

Thanks.

If that doesn't work, the other car rental agencies are located at the airport, if you book one there, it's a $15 cab ride to the airport from the ferry dock.....or if you have a hotel room near the airport, have their complimentary shuttle pick you up at the ferry, take you to the hotel or to the airport......

If you will be departing Juneau by ferry, you can leave the rental car at the ferry terminal (there is a key drop off box near the phones).....just let the company you rent from know in advence.........

We arrived by ferry and rented from Budget. I called to ask if they had a shuttle, and they originally said no. But then the manager said she would send someone anyway. She was very nice. They charged $30 to drop the car at the ferry, however. We had no choice but to drop it since our ferry left at 4 a.m. On the way back, we took a cab from the ferry to the airport, and I think it was about $20, including tip. It was definitely worth renting a car there, but we also stayed out at Auke Bay and needed it for that.

Rent a Wreck will come pick you up, as long as its during business hours...
