I had to go back and change the mileage charged because I knew it was wrong--the starting mileage number on the contract was off slightly, It was my mistake to fail to note the actual mileage figure on the odometer until immediately after leaving the lot (a block away). I just assumed the mileage number was the same on the paperwork. When I returned the truck I initially paid the erroneous mileage charges. But upon returning to the office to point out the error, the manager, without question, promptly changed the charges to reflect the correct mileage used. It's about the easiest truck rental I've ever experienced. However, I highly encourage people to make sure the odometer reading on the contract paperwork is the same in the actual vehicle *BEFORE* leaving the premises. (In my case, the ending digit "7" was misread or mistyped as a "1" on the contract.)

There were green loogies spat all over the floor and the wall of the truck we rented. It also smelled like weed. People clearly had a blast in there the previous night. We had to clean it up and sweep it before moving stuff in. The customer service agent apologized and discounted our rental for the inconvenience but it was still a really disgusting experience.
