Being a low-mileage Toyota, it won't break down on you. I would prefer somebody didn't burn out my clutch or repeatedly stall my engine, so please only rent this if you are familiar with driving a manual transmission car. It gets exceptional fuel economy (EPA 36 mpg highway). It is clean, has a bike rack available at your request, and fits into almost any available parking space within the City of Seattle.
Location: I live in the Montlake neighborhood, across from the University District, minutes off the 520 (toward Bellevue) as well as I-5.
I can meet you at your home or anywhere in Seattle. Please include the delivery address in the request. I will drive back to my apartment and hand off the keys.
Depending on the time of day, I can drop the car at the airport and take public transit home if you are heading south from SeaTac, but late night or early morning deliveries will require the renter to return me to my home (Montlake) or work (South Lake Union) in Seattle first. If you are heading into Seattle, I will pick you up and drive back to my apartment before handing off the keys (that mileage won't count against your limit).
Our street has zoned (i.e. permit-only) parking, but there is unrestricted parking beginning a mere half-block away to the west.

Excellent communication, very flexible and easy to work with. You can't go wrong here!
Ben was very easy to deal with on setting up the rental and very accommodating on the logistics of picking up and dropping off the car. The Yaris is not a luxury vehicle, nor will it win any beauty contests, but it runs fine and got me where I needed to go with no problems. I would not hesitate to rent from Ben again!
Renting Benjamin's Yaris was a great experience. He is open for communication and made it really easy to meet and pick up and drop off his car. The car itself has power windows, locks, and ice-cold air conditioning which makes it a great car for moving around the city and for short trips out of town.
Benjamin was awesome! We were originally supposed to arrive around 10 and ended up landing earlier and he was there in a matter of minutes. Very helpful in giving us options and things to do in the beautiful city of Seattle. The car is also an amazing gas saver! I would definitely be contacting him again if ever back in Seattle.
Benjamin was a pleasure to work with and the car was just what I needed. Great fuel economy and fun to drive. Lots of room in the trunk. He met me at the airport baggage claim area and picked up the car in the departure area. Timing was perfect. I will definitely rent from him again when I return to Seattle.
As a first time renter through Turo Ii must say it went exceptionally smoothly. Benjamin was nice to deal with and his Toyota Yarris was a fun car to drive. I had forgotten how well a manual stick-shifting vehicle is actually able to handle. I I might have to
recent that zippy ride again.
Ben is a great relayrider-- accommodating, prompt, and hassle free. His car is great for navigating the streets and highways of Seattle providing you don't mind a stick shift in some stop and go traffic situations. I would definitely rent this car again!
Awesome car, awesome car owner. Benji made everything really simple. Super nice guy, easy to work with, and the car is in great condition, clean inside, no smells and drives like brand new. Will definitely rent from again the next time I need a long term rental.
