A bit of a shot in the dark
Over the Christmas vacation, I rented a black/grey Toyota Corolla (MA tag: 466 GX8) from the Budget Rental on Brighton Ave in Allston in order to visit my family in Maryland and return to Boston in time to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends in town.
I returned to town late on Wednesday night and unloaded my Christmas gifts and then took the car to the rental agency on the morning of 12/31/09. That afternoon, I came to realize I had left one of my boxes in the car's backseat.
The rental agency had closed its doors at 3 PM and I was too late to contact them about possibly retrieving my item and they won't open until Saturday morning to find out if they'd perhaps found it in the car.
In the meantime, the national customer service number let me know that the car had been rented out again until 1/2/2010...so if the rental office had not seen the box either, then it may be in the hands of the new renter who now has the car. If you or anyone you know has rented a black/grey Corolla from Budget in Allston for the New Year weekend, please let me know. If it turns out on Saturday that Budget has found my package, then I'll ask Adam to delete this post.
Thanks for any help anyone can give me on this. I know this post is quite the shot in the dark, long shot, rare chance...but I really hope that the package can make its way safely back to me this holiday season. It would mean a lot to me.
