Alamo comes in at number eight on the list. It is the first large, well-known international brand on our list. It is well-known for providing consistent quality, though it's prices are generally a bit higher than that of other companies.

The only thing that keeps Alamo from being rated as providing excellent value is perhaps their prices. The company's premium service comes at slightly higher price. However, many customers find it completely worth it and come away compeltely satisfied.
