Parking details

Parking available at pickup location when renting, at your own risk.


Must obey all laws. No illegal acts or operation while renting. No driving while under the influence of alcohol, medications, legal or illegal substance. No Smoking. I try to make the rental delivery as 1) quick and smooth a process as possible, 2) respect your privacy and stay out of your personal business, 3) but glad to help if needed, 4) let me know how car is used and where driven to protect intended use. I reserve the right to decline renters for any reason. I started and ran several businesses (medical and financial). First time renters may be declined based on length of rental and location and purpose for trip, or any other reason I do not feel comfortable for releasing my personal vehicle. I reserve the right to decline anyone for any reason in order to preserve the safety and condition of the car. I have had problems - false info given to Turo - and refused to rent. I’ve rented over 25 times. Guidelines are to protect investment, but I am not overly pickey. Read Reviews.


  • What other things should I have with me on the trip?
    Read your contract with Turo thoroughly and understand what happens if someone scratched the side of the car, breaking a light, etc. What do you do and what your are responsible for? Keep the Turo insurance information you elected with you. Your contract is with Turo, not the car owner. Airport Pickup Information: Airport: we can arrange pickup and drop off at door to check in at any time at beginning and end of rental for airline passengers or FBO operations. It costs me $30 for uber each way.
  • What do I do with the car prior to return of car to you?
    Fill the car to the same level as when you started your drive. Throw away all empty cups, wrappers, and any larger trash out of car. I will vacuum and wash the outside. There will be towels to put on floor for spills and if shoes muddy. It takes two hours to clean and prepare the SUV for the next renter. Just normal consideration and care like like you would your car. I am not overly picky., but it is a personal vehicle, not a rental to be auctioned off next month. Thank you.

Easier and more convenient than a big box rental. The vehicle was very nice and well equipped.

Tom was very easy to communicate with, the car was ready for us when we got off the plane and he was there to take the car when we arrived back at the airport. The Explorer was great too. Ran very good, was clean and in very good condition.

Working with Tom was great from the beginning to the end. Definitely would recommend everything about my experience. My wife and three year old loved the entire roadtrip. Thanks.
