Penn's Car Rental

Postby myhappyplace » Wed Jan 17, 2018 11:27 am

We are in the process of planning a trip for February 2019 and have used Penn's for our car rentals in the past. However, several attempts to reach the office by phone have failed. Can anyone tell me whether or not they are still in business?
Thank you!

I recently asked this question, maybe on another site? I wasn't able to get a phone number or contact for Penns before I booked elsewhere. BUT - one poster said Penns can be contacted via Facebook, on Penns Trucking services page. Try that.

Thanks for your reply! I did a search on FB for Penn's but there were only two posts and they were dated back in September just after the Hurricanes hit. And the posts were not from Penn's directly! I guess we'll keep trying the phone!

"I guess we'll keep trying the phone!"

That won't work. All land lines are down on St. John, and they will remain so for the foreseeable future. To contact anyone by phone, you need their cell number (and even then, service can be spotty, and calls may be dropped). I had some upcoming guests who had similar difficulty contacting Mr. Piper's Jeeps, so I stopped by to get a cell number. Mary there provided her cell number: 340-473-9283. It also turns out that they have internet access, and so provided an email address at which to reach them ( Short of actually showing up, getting in touch with folks can be a challenge. I just left island after a month, or I would offer to stop by Penn's for you. Good luck.

All the best,

Thank you so much for your response.
I don't think Penn's has a website. I 'googled' them yesterday and had no luck.
I'm not familiar with Mr. Piper's Jeeps. We like renting from Penn because there is convenient downtown parking at his lot. Not sure if Mr. Piper's has parking?
Think I'll check the website you provided and find out!!!! Thanks again!
By the way, where in southern NH are you? We are in Ogunquit, ME!!!
