Things to keep in mind so we can remain best friends:
// Take several photos before starting your trip: interior issues, exterior issues, gas level, odometer/mileage. You're encouraged to text those images to me before the trip so we're both on the same page. I'm a renter as well and this tactic has served me well in the past when potential problems arose.
// Enjoy the drive but treat the car well. Per Turo policy, only the Renter/Member should operate the vehicle at all times.
// To start the car: Push the key into the ignition slot until it clicks, hold down the brake and push the start/stop button.
// To park the car: shift to Park, press the start/stop button, remove the key from the housing.
// No smoking (any/all substances) and no pets. Fines for each.
// Tolls (per Turo policy): please manually pay tolls as you pass through them. "For all-electronic tollways with no way to pay manually (e.g., Golden Gate Bridge), the guest needs to reimburse the owner directly (Venmo) or inform Turo so the proper fee can be added to the trip. If the guest doesn't do so, this will result in an additional fee."
// There are two gas stations nearby (2500 California St and 2501 California St). PLEASE refill the tank with PREMIUM gas (91+) only and leave the receipt(s) in the car and/or send a photo of any receipt(s). Lower fuel grades or forgetting to fill up at all will, sadly, result in a fee plus the end of our budding friendship. Cheaper gas makes the engine knock, cuts the performance and almost immediately damages the engine. It's about $50 to fill the tank completely but that gets you about 400+ miles.
// If driving/parking in the city, double check parking signs: hourly limits, street cleaning schedules, private driveways, fire hydrants, bus stops, red curb paint, etc. The car is currently permitted for "G" zones.
// Curb the tires if parking on a hill (for SF-newbs: that means turn the wheels so the car doesn't roll down the hill)
// Make sure you've gathered all of your belongings.
