Customer Experiences

GRETCHEN V, Pretoria, South Africa

Many of us are quick to complain when we are not happy with a service, but lax to take the trouble to express satisfaction or even delight at exceptional service. Today, I would like to share my gratitude for your truly unique and brilliant service; I have had the privilege and pleasure to be on the receiving end of. I have been hiring cars from Pender for a number of years now, and not once, has my experience been anything but of the highest standard.

From the owners to the manager and every single member of staff, friendliness and efficiency, have been the norm. Furthermore, you have always gone out of your way to accommodate all my requests and came to my assistance and rescue, on numerous occasions (and sometimes in very creative ways).

You have always been utterly professional, yet warm and welcoming- and no request ever too much trouble. I would like to list every occasion where you went beyond the call of duty for me- both from the Pretoria-ánd Cape Town offices), but that would be a lóng list. May I thank you for all of this as well as for setting a wonderful example in every aspect of your business. I wish you all the best. 

Warm regards

When someone rents a car abroad one just want to have a car that doesn’t give problems and an office that does take care without overdoing the paperwork. Both I found in Pender Car rental. Since 19 years back I rent basically for holiday, sometimes for business. Pender car rental always goes “the extra mile” with a real and personal smile.

They are just a phone call away and they assist and help instantly, whenever something unexpected happens. They are specialists in long-term rental as well, which makes Pender Car rental first option for anything else besides holiday. I like the airport-service, which delivers the car right to “departures” with the nice option to have a driver back to the head office in Brooklyn/PRET.

A big thank you to the Pender team! My rental car was delivered to my office on time and collected from my house at the end of the rental at no charge. The guys at Pender were friendly and professional every step of the way – even when I hit a pothole and they came out to assist me after hours. I can honestly recommend Pender and will definitely be using them again in the future.
