Dean Goodwin

Used Carhood for the first time this month. Dropped my car off and got personally driven to the airport, upon returning I waited no longer than 10 minutes to be picked up after I got my bags. My car was cleaned and ready to go. No more paying for parking and taxis for me! Can strongly recommend using Carhood, it just makes sense.

Emily Sowter

I left my car with Carhood for the first time this weekend and was very impressed with the service and convenience. I saved a chunk of money on airport parking, and when I picked my car up it was probably the cleanest it's been since I bought it! I just love this concept - linking cars that would otherwise be taking up (expensive) space near the airport with people who want to drive them! Everyone's a winner - travellers, drivers, and the environment!

Liam Ayres

Easy drop-off and pick-up, super friendly service, car looks cleaner than I reckon it's ever been, plus after 3 weeks overseas came back to find my car had been rented out during my time away so all up I even gained a bit of cash. A smart and professional business which Australia has been waiting for. Thanks again Carhood.
