California Cycles, Panama City Beach, Florida Princeton Kentucky Review

My family and I were vacationing in Panama City Beach, Florida the week of July 8-13, 2013. On July 11 we decided to rent two scooters from California Cycles. Their location was close to our condo and on the initial impression were reputable. I rented two scooters for my son and his friend to ride and after the standard paperwork, payment, and a $100 deposit for damages discussion was completed, a young man named Brian (turns out that he was the owner’s son) completed a very short tutorial on the features and operation of the scooter. The tutorial and “inspection”” took about 2 minutes and since there was no obvious existing damage the boys were off for the ride. I returned later to rent a three wheeled “”spider”” type of scooter which are very popular there. As I was waiting and deciding what unit to rent an adult lady comes out of the shop ranting about never renting from this company. She said they had kept her deposit for “”damages”” she did not do. She called their business a scam and stormed off the premises. With that in mind

I proceeded to pay another $100 deposit for “”damages”” and rented the spider scooter. I made a point of going around it with the owner’s son and we both identified existing scratches

“”damage”” etc. We had paid for overnight rentals on all three of the rentals and proceeded to enjoy them. We ran the spider scooter out of fuel (they don’t have fuel guages) shortly after we got it because it wasn’t full when we left with it

as it was represented to be. We filled it up with fuel and had no further incidents with any of the three rentals.We retruned them overnight to their business and I was there before the rental time expired with the keys to all three and prepared to get the deposits back. The owner’s son immedialtely went to one of the scooters and “”found”” a sctach on the underside of the plastic cowl in front of the floor boards of the scooter my son rode. It was not the type of thing the casual observer would just walk up and instantly notice. I was suspect at the time because of how fast he went to the exact spot this “”damage”” was. At the time I could not help but feel like he had found this “”damage”” before on previous rentals of thgis scooter and that I was about to get scammed by the home boys on this transaction. The owner’s son took a very casual look a the spider and one of the scooters and judged them to be in good condition and said I would get the deposit on the spider back but that he would have to call the general manager (dad) about the “”damage”” to the other scooter. After waiting a half hour or more

“”dad”” shows up
