Good car rental place in Manhattan?

We live in Manhattan NYC and need to rent a minivan to take our son's stuff up to his college on Sunday September 2nd (two weeks from tomorrow)...but it's getting complicated...

The reason that it needs to be a minivan is because we're bringing up his bicycle as well as a ton of other stuff.
We've used Enterprise in the West Village in the past and they've been great and reasonably priced, but they told me that they only open at 3PM on Sundays (amazing to me, but that's how it is). This is very late for us to get going, considering we have to pack the van, drive two hours upstate, unpack and then get back.
Probably we'll be back too late to return the car and will have to pay for parking somewhere and return the van early Monday morning.
I did reserve the minivan from them for $142.99.
I also reserved a minivan at a local Avis for the price of --- $287.69. Ouch.
Does anyone have any favorite car rental places in downtownish Manhattan/the Village/etc. I should try?
Thank you. By the way, please don't suggest that we tie the bike to the top of a car. This is not going to work for us (we are not Mitt Romney and the bike is not a dog etc.)
