We operate by appointment. You might have noticed there is no address
listed. This is to prevent people from showing up who do not have an appointment. We are often gone getting car washes, getting gas, getting
oil changes, taking cars to/from the shop, picking up customers, and
picking up vehicles when customers are done with them, among other
things. As such, we are out of the office much of the time, and cannot 
reliably be there at all times to accept walk-ins. All you need to do to
make an appointment is call. A half hour notice is usually all that is
needed.
 
To make a reservation appointment, we will need the following
information from you:
  1. First and last name of cardholder
  2. Phone number of cardholder
  3. Type of car desired
  4. Pickup date & time
  5. Return date & time
  6. Credit card details:
    • Card number (16- or 15-digit)
    • Expiration date (mm/yy)
    • Security code (cvv, cv2, csc)
    • Billing zip code (5-digit)
  7. Optional: provide your address if you would like us to pick you up at your requested pickup date & time.
 
To submit this information, you can call or use the form below.  It may help to familiarize yourself with the rental agreement which can be found at the bottom of this page.
 
IMPORTANT:  Your vehicle will not be saved for you until all of the above information has been received by us. Your card will be charged one non-refundable day at the time the reservation is made. The remainder amount will be charged at the time you pick up your vehicle.
The person who is paying is considered the main renter (even if they don't drive the car at all). The name on the renter's credit/debit card must match the name on the renter's driver's license. It is generally best if the main renter (cardholder) is the person calling to schedule the reservation appointment. 

​​Rental Requirements

  • A valid driver's license. (Every person who will drive the car must provide license information.) There is no extra charge for the first and second drivers. Adding more than 2 drivers is $10/license. We will ask to see licenses/IDs of all those who show up to a reservation appointment, even if only one of you plans on driving.

  • A credit card with your name on it. If you want to use a DEBIT card (as indicated by the words "Debit", "Check card", "EFS", or "Prepaid") a $200 security deposit will be added at the time of rental. The deposit will be refunded after the car is returned in the same condition it left in. It generally takes a minimum of two business days for the refund to be credited back to your account.

  • Auto insurance. Insurance coverage is required.

    • You can use your own automotive insurance (with collision or 'full coverage') to cover potential liability and costs for repairs in the case of an accident -- check with your insurance company to determine if your current policy covers rentals. You will need to bring your policy number with you if you are using your own insurance.

    • Many credit card companies provide insurance for rental cars -- check with your credit card provider to determine if your credit card offers any benefits for car rental. You must use this card to pay for the rental to be covered.

    • If you do not have your own insurance, Ames Auto Rentals offers a collision damage waiver for an additional daily fee of $20 or a weekly fee of $80 plus a $200 deposit.
