Budget Trucks Almost Killed me and all I got was This Letter

Screen shot of my reservation with Budget Trucks which does not inform me that this company is NOT a budget rental company location.

In response to renting me a truck that almost got me killed, I received the following email today from Budget. Perhaps the worst email from a customer service agent I have ever received in response to serious complaint. I actually feel bad for Adrianne Agent 32537 that she works at a company that doesn’t care for their customers and has to send letters such as these. It must be horrible to work for Budget and be forced to lie and defraud customers. I have included a link to the complaint below:

Dear Mr Bookstein ,

Thank you for contacting Budget Truck Customer Service.

We extend our most sincere apologies for any inconvenience you have been caused and we can certainly understand your frustration. We are sorry to learn your recent experience with a Budget licensee has not met the usual high standards our customers have come to expect and deserve.

Unfortunately, we are unable to compensate on a rental that did not take place with Budget Truck. [Even though i rented it through your site] You would need to contact the licensees’ you
picked up from. They handle all of their issues on their own, because the truck that was rented was not a truck owned by Budget Truck but by the licensee. We apologize for any confusion this may cause.

Agent 32537

    We stopped renting cars from Budget after a couple of major snafus in the past couple of years. We’ve had much better luck (except I guess it isn’t luck) with Avis. I’m shocked Budget would disown a vehicle rented under their name. However, I’m glad you’re alive.
