Cool No car rentals after 6pm in Redding?

I'm flying in to Redding on the late flight that arrives around 11:40pm. I started looking for a car rental, and found that nobody rents at the airport (or in town) past 6, at least as far as I can tell. Anyone up there know of workarounds? The lady at Hertz said they tell people to shuttle to a hotel and come back in the morning, but they open after my workday starts. And close before my workday ends.

Looks like they are open 7:30 to 5:30, you can't get over there very first thing and get one before going to work first day?

1st patient 7:30, last one out the door about 6:40.

Uber it is, I guess. I just hate being without a car.

Sometimes rental companies will meet a late flight if you make prior arrangements. I suggest giving them a call --

Avis - 530-221-2855
Budget - 530-225-8652
Enterprise - 530-223-0700
Hertz - 530-221-4620

Also, maybe Enterprise will come to your workplace during the day and dropoff the car - or at least give you a ride to the rental company if you can take a few minutes off..

We had some cancellations and moved the late appointments, so I did end up getting a car the next day. I'm just surprised that at least one company doesn't stay open to meet a 60+ pax flight that comes in every night.
