Anyone familiar with Carl's Van Rentals

I'm looking to rent a mini-van for a week during our family Disney vacation. The prices at Carl's are significantly less than the national rental companies. I'm looking for some honest experiences from anyone that may have used them. Also, perhaps recommendations for mini-van/full size SUV rental in Orlando.

Thanks,

MM

They have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. bbb.org/central-florida/business-reviews/aut…

The BBB does the consumer no good.

This BBB page gives them a D. Confusing?

One is an INC. and one is not. They probably dropped the INC. and started over.

That's interesting. Thanks for your response.

I didn't know a business could change their address and get a new grade from the BBB. From a D at one location to an A+ after a move? Why does that make any sense?

Another reason the BBB is worthless and does the consumer no good.

My problem is with the BBB not your business. The BBB has been recommended on the forums many times and this just confirms even further that they are worthless.

I find it odd that a person with 1 post digs this thread up and is responded to by a person who has two posts 3 years apart that are both about Carl's followed by a post from Carl himself. Being the resident skeptic my suspicion has been raised.
