Faqs

  • How do I charge the Model 3

    Best and quickest way? Tesla Superchargers. Please see Guidlines for more info. Adapters will be provided for Level 1 & 2 Charging. For Level 1 (115V) Try NOT to use an extension cord as this will cause multiple interruptions. I recommend you use Level 1 charging for overnight trickle charging needs only as it is really slow. Please download the app “PlugShare” to check out the details of public charging stations (Mostly Level 2). For more details Please watch the Walkthrough video we will provide upon booking. PLEASE be vigilant on your charge levels. Make sure you are aware of what your charge level will be when you reach your destination (determined via Navigation) and what your level will be for the round trip. Please DO NOT let the charge level go below 10%. Plan accordingly by finding chargers on route or at destination.

  • Are you always available to deliver the car to me?

    Delivery is avaialable as per the 'Pickup & return location' feature when booking. However, there will be times where I cannot physically meet you to deliver the car and will need to arrange a remote handoff. The most important factor in making that circumstance flow smoothly is for renters to thoroughly review the Model 3 Walkthrough videos and Guidelines we will provide upon booking. Please note: the charge level may be slightly below 90% upon delivery

  • Do I have to return the car clean?

    Short answer, yes BUT more important rule: DO NOT wipe down the exterior of the car or use any automatic touch or with track/rails car wash. This can damage the clear coat, cameras and rims and will result in a fee. If quite dirty, you may use a TRACKLESS & TOUCHLESS car wash such as the Shell Car Wash Otherwise, please Try your best to keep it clean and neat in the first place; Sometimes this is out our control, but try to the best of your ability. For interior: Light vacuuming and moist cloth wiping should help. Minimal exterior dirt is acceptable and expected. If the exterior suddenly gets very dirty for some reason (driving on mud/dirt road or slush/salt), please let me know first and we will determine a touchless wash solution. If you return the car in relatively dirty condition (as determined by Turo Cleaning Policy) you will be charged a cleaning fee. Please consider looking into the Prepaid Post Trip Cleaning Option under Extras

  • Do I have to return the car Fully charged?

    The Model 3 will need to be returned with at least 60% charge otherwise a refuel charge will apply. Please consider purchasing the Prepaid refuel found under EXTRAS

  • Do I need to pay for any Toll charges

    Yes, please refer to the guidelines on this.

  • How do we do handoff if you're not available?

    Technology! However we agree to do the handoff, I will be able to grant you access to the vehicle by remotely unlocking the car and giving you access to the Tesla Model 3 Fob. All details and video Walkthrough will be provided after booking the Tesla.

  • Why should I book your Model 3

    3 Reasons to book my Model 3 - Long Range - Compared to the SR+ the LR gives lots of flexibility and convenience - FREE Supercharging & Full Self Driving features such as No confirmation Navigate on Autopilot. - This is the FIRST Full-Time Model 3 on the Turo marketplace in the GTA. Our flexible hand-off system and parking availability when picking up is super convenient. But we will deliver too. - Experience: We have several long term rentals complete. Leverage my experience and positive review to make your trip a seamless one. - Post-booking walkthrough videos: You will have access to videos that will walk you thorugh several aspects on how to operate the vehicle. Some things are not always intuitive and we want to make this a seamless process for you. Many Turo guests have found this VERY helpful

My husband has been trying to convince me to buy a Tesla for more than 2 years, so I decided for Christmas, I’d rent the model 3 for a weekend to see if a Tesla would be right for us. Renting the Tesla from Stephen from start to finish was incredibly easy. Communication was timely, concise, and helpful. Stephen could not meet us for pick up, but he remotely opened his car which honestly was pretty cool and made it convenient for both parties. For someone unfamiliar with Tesla, these are my takeaways. The most interesting and unfamiliar part for me was the regenerative breaking- as you release the gas pedal, the car starts to break and you HARDLY have to use the break pedal. It’s almost like relearning how to drive again, which was surprising in the beginning but you finally get use to it. We experimented with the cruise control and auto pilot as well. The cruise control is so much SMARTER than other cruise control. You set your speed limit as well as the distance you want in between you and the car in front. Because of these limits, the car will slow down or speed up to maintain that set distance. Unlike traditional cruise control, you’d have to take over if you were getting too close to other cars. For the autopilot there were some safety features that I really want to highlight. The autopilot makes you “confirm” lane changes before it actually switches lanes, and every so often, it makes you confirm that you’re still “there/present/alert” by asking you to tilt the wheel or press on the wheel. The downfall with the autopilot right now is, it’s constantly asking you to switch lanes (probably because it’s learning a faster route), which was unnecessary, so sometimes we just declined the lane switch. We had an incident in the Tesla where another car rapidly cut us off while we were on autopilot, and the Tesla immediately and rapidly started breaking and told us to manually take over. It was a very interesting and important experience for us to have as it’s very telling of how vigilant the Tesla is. The other safety feature that I really appreciated is that, you cannot cruise control or autopilot if any of the cameras are blocked or “blinded”. It snowed on one of the days that we rented the Tesla, and those functions were not available because the cameras could not “see”. Stephen has unlimited supercharge. We supercharged 3 times and had no issues. As someone new to Tesla, I found myself constantly look at the middle console, which that in itself is distracting. But once you know where everything is, you forget about it. If you rent from Stephen in the winter, ask him about how to precondition the car so that you can get more km’s per battery charge. We unfortunately were not efficient with our battery:km ratio because the battery was cold (wasn’t warmed up) before we drove it. If you are a huge fan of Tesla but haven’t driven one, you should definitely rent from Stephen, not only is he a Tesla enthuse but he is a WEALTH of knowledge. My husband had a great time talking to him when we dropped off the car. Stephen, thank you for renting your car to us. All the best to you!

I cannot say enough great things about our experience with Stephen’s Model 3. The vehicle is in immaculate condition, as if it is brand new. The vehicle is so much fun to drive. However, what really made the trip was the incredible assistance from our host, Stephen. He was patient with me as I got familiar with the vehicle and so understanding even when we accidentally set off the alarm which triggered a notification on his phone. He checked in to make sure all was ok. His knowledge and passion for Tesla vehicles is impressive. You’d be hard pressed to find a Tesla employee with his level of knowledge. Upon return he took time from his evening to answer questions and share his knowledge and experience as an owner. If I were Tesla I would be hiring him as an official brand ambassador because while I was on the fence about buying one before, our discussion with Stephen has definitely removed any doubt. You won’t regret booking a trip with Stephen.
