AviStart is suppose to be under new construction. There is know evidence of any construction work being done. They are parking cars four deep in some cases. When I arrived their was no one to greet me and take my reservation. I had to walk to the trailer to give them my reservation. Once the shuttle arrived I had to take my luggage to the shuttle. Upon my return they did not want to honor my price for parking, which was stated on the reservation. It took an hour for them to find my car, and bring it to me. DO NOT Park with AviStar at O'Hare. I have used AviStar in the pass, but will not be using them going forward.
Upon getting luggage, I called three times and was sent to voicemail which was full. On the fourth time I got through. The shuttle then took 20-25 min to arrive. I had my whole family--wife and three kids--with a lot of luggage. The driver did not help load or unload luggage. When we arrived at parking lot our car was not ready--we waited another 10-15 min for car. The lady whole completed the final bill had no idea how much I had prepaid and charged me an arbitrary amount. Overall, I was unimpressed by the service.
This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. The shuttle was over 45 minute wait time. I then proceeded to get to the AviStar parking lot and there was a line. One person working the desk and one person getting the cars. I then had to stand in line while people were checking out with Groupons when I had prepaid. I took my key and then had to find my own car because it hadn't pulled up. The parking lot was dark and muddy. When I got my car, it was all muddy on the interior and exterior. I travel a lot and have never seen such horrible service. I can't believe that the airport would run such a business!!
reserved and prepaid some to hold it - on return price went up due to "city" taxes, no answer when I asked why they dont tell that upfront. Drivers and lot guys fine.
This parking lot was very crowded & not kept up. If I did not have to be at the airport I would have gone to another lot to try & get in. And to make matters worse, the person I called the night before to ask about a cancellation did not know what he was talking about. When we got there the woman said he was new. There are plenty of lots along Manheim Road & I will use another one next time.
The parking lot itself was in terrible condition, the pavement was full of potholes and the check-in trailer was a disaster. But my biggest issue was the customer service (or lack thereof) that I received from management. Upon return from my trip, I found that my phone charger was missing from my car. When I reported it, the "supervisor" was extremely rude and didn't want to do an incident report, but I insisted that he should. To make a long story short, they have an employee stealing from customers and they clearly have no interest in identifying who it is. And the supervisor's attitude towards me was terrible. A simple apology and a little kindness would have gone a long way. I would recommend everyone avoid Avistar Parking.
Good parking for the price
Horrible experience! When I dropped the car off, no one else came out. There were no signs where to go, nothing. After heading to some shady trailer, I have been told to leave the car... no one took any info. The drop off was at the wrong gate.... the way home was worse: I chose this company due to their advertisement of having shuttles every 10 minutes, we waited at least 45 minutes outside. We had called their office in advance, given them our car info and by the time we got there, it was not there.... other cars were pulled up first for customers who weren't even there yet. Weird excuses like: we cannot get your car right now, it is parked in... we're given.... we got out of the airport at 2pm and left their lot at 4pm. I have never been treated so poorly and this was definitely my last time with this service.
Parking lot was well staffed and was secure. Pickup from airport is a [mess].
They didn't pull my car before we returned. It took an additional 20 minutes or more to check me out, find my car and then move an additional car before pulling mine up.
I found the Avistar O'Hare Parking experience to be somewhat challenging ( late March, 2016 ). They are under re-construction, operating out of trailers. The lot is rough, gravelly, and full of pot holes and puddles. The shuttle bus bore a sign for Quality Inn that was more prominent than the Avistar sign, and was more challenging to identify than those of competing companies. I was charged a VERY LOW price for 4 days of parking, so I appreciated that accommodation. When I dropped off my car, there was little space in the lane for it, and I worried that I might not see it again or that it would be damaged. I'm happy to report that I was wrong on both counts. My car was ready at the office when I returned on the shuttle. The car was clean and undamaged, and safely locked. The office staff was quick and efficient in settling my account and returning my key to me. I was able to drive straight out of the lot through ample aisles. I commend Avistar for continuing to provide customer service while they transition their facilities. No excuses were required; the actual storage and movement of cars was seemingly done by magic.
The shuttle was fast going to the airport and back to the parking lot. There were cars EVERYWHERE and I had to wait a few minutes because my car was parked in. I think there could be some things done to reorganize their system, but I would definitely park here again.
I did not know that AviStar no longer has a building, but instead has a decrepit parking lot with a tiny office in a mobile building. The shuttle wait was very long, and the return shuttle trip was even longer--more than 45 minutes. The bus was so crowded that people were standing. (Apparently there was only one shuttle running, though we saw several parked in the lot.)Then we all waited in line in the cold outside the mobile office to pay our bills. I would note that the few employees there were doing their best under difficult circumstances, and I felt sorry for them. They were courteous and efficient.
We have used Avistar on our own many times before. Since last year when they began their construction and are in the process of changing over to "Joe's" we have had poor service. They don't answer their phones when we are ready for pick up at the airport. We are put to the voicemail, which states their voice mail box is full. I have to keep calling back. We went to the pick up area outside Door 1 across from the Hilton and had to wait an extra 20 minutes because the shuttle that was there left without us. When we did get back to Avistar, we were told to go in to a trailer, which was a holding area supposedly, until our car was pulled up. This was unacceptable, as when we were ready for pick up, they should have started getting our vehicle ready so we could get in and leave. That did not happen. Finally, my husband went out and was told by a guy (no uniforms in use there) that we were to be waiting in the other trailer. If someone would have told us that, we could have been on our way at least a half hour earlier. They gave us the excuse that they had to move other cars. We will not return in the future, although ever time we fly out of O'Hare, we have been using their service since 2008.
Cars blocked the entrance so the shuttle bus stopped well short of trailer (in a mud puddle). It took forever for shuttle driver to leave terminal and equally long to have my car pulled forward. Unacceptable for a service business. I guessed I'm spoiled at Wally Park
If I could give this place 0 starts I would and that is really sad because this place USE to be great, it has gone to HELL. Now all they care about is getting as many cars on the lot as possible. They are WAY under staffed and don't even have enough room for all of the cars. I have had two horrible experiences two weeks in a row (picked up 3/25/16) and last Thursday (picked up 3/31/16) is the last time I will ever go there, which is a shame because I had been going here for years and it use to be under good management. The past year or so it has been getting worse and worse, this past Thursday it was be when I returned from my trip I called their number once I got my luggage and I had to call them TEN times before anyone answered my call. Over 30 minutes after I first started calling AviStar a bus finally shows up. He calls back to the office to give our ticket numbers so they can get the cars ready, well no one ever answers him and he tried 3 times. We pull up at the lot and there are SOOO many cars parked everywhere that the bus can't even pull into the lot. It lets us out at the entrance and we have to drag our luggage all the way to the back building. I finally get there dragging my luggage thru the rain and the potholes. I feel sorry for the people who dropped off their cars earlier because at least 5 cars had open windows. So, when I finally get to the office as I expected my car wasn’t ready and waiting for me like it is supposed to be since I prepaid. Until recently the car was always there and waiting, but now they are so understaffed that there are not enough people there to go and get the cars. So I walk into the office and the young lady takes my ticket and then asks me how I want to pay. I prepaid and I turned in the receipt when I dropped off my car. So, not only is my car not ready, but my ticket with my key wasn’t even pulled from the HUGE pile of keys. During my walk from the street all the way to the back I happened to see my car and it wasn’t blocked in and there was no way that I was going to wait for them to find one of the guys that was supposed to be getting cars, there seemed to be only 2 people out getting cars. The girl at the desk even admitted that they were WAY under staffed. You are also taking a risk with your car because as I was walking back to the street to get my car myself the two guys that were getting cars were FLYING around the parking lot in customer vehicles. I wish that I could recommend another place, but as I mentioned I have been using this place for years so I haven’t no experience any place else. After these last two experiences at AviStar I figure that any place else couldn’t help but be better than what this place has turned into.
We were not happy with the condition of the parking accommodations as far as being able to maneuver the car out of the lot. Cars parked too close together and driving aisles not adequate. Staff was friendly, shuttle was on time and courteous.
We have used this service in the past and found it pretty reliable. I understand that they are remodeling and working out of trailers, but the place was a mess! Shorthanded on staff, only running one shuttle. Not so sure we will go back. I felt badly for the employees (3) they had one lady manning the phones, dispatching and taking money. One retrieving cars and one driving the shuttle.
no complaints at all decent price good service
The lot is in terrible shape with standing water everywhere. The 'office' is a trailer with no room for people to wait to check out. The shuttle took 35 minutes to pick us up, not the 15 the dispatched told us. We then had to wait 45 anxious minutes as my keys were missing and my car was unaccounted for. In all the confusion, when my car finally arrived, no one actually verified I was the owner of my car. Overall a very horrible experience and would recommend no one park here. No one seemed to care.
