PLS NOTE THAT FROM NOV 27TH TO DEC 25TH, 2019 THE ONLY WAY TO OBTAIN THE CAR IS VIA REMOTE ACCESS.
Due to a knee replacement surgery and recovery from said surgery, the only way to access the car during these dates is via remote access. What that means is once you rent the car, you will need to send me a photo of you holding up your drivers license so that I can release the car to you. Once I receive a copy of your drivers license, I will text you the code to the lock box which is on the window of the car which is parked in my driveway of my home. You just come on over, enter the code, grab the keys, and jump in the car and go! It’s a seamless transaction! And I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during my healing time!
ARE YOU FLEXIBLE WITH THE RETURN DATE? IN OTHER WORDS, CAN I EXTEND MY RENTAL?
Yes. I am very flexible. Provided that nobody has pre-booked the car, you are more than welcome to extend your rental.
ARE YOU FLEXIBLE WITH THE MILEAGE?
Yes. I am flexible with the mileage depending on the individual circumstances so please reach out to me BEFORE you go over the alloted mileage. Once you go over the mileage, typically I will ask for reimbursement through Turo. However, if there are extenuating circumstances, please let me know ahead of time.
HOW DOES RENTING FROM YOU WORK?
There is the old fashioned, PERSONAL way where we agree to meet somewhere (maybe a Starbucks or restaurant) at which point we introduce ourselves, shake hands, confirm your identity by way of valid driver's license and then I hand you the key and off you go for your adventure in The Stang! At the end of your rental you and I meet again at the same place, you hand me the keys, I take a couple of photos and then we shake hands again and part ways.
ARE THERE OTHER WAYS TO GET THE 'STANG?
Yes! Another way of renting the Mustang is via REMOTE ACCESS. This happens most frequently at the Destin Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS). When you land at the airport, you simply go to the designated parking spot, upload a photo of you holding your driver's license, enter a code into a lock box, grab the keys, jump in and go! Upon your return flight, you return the Mustang to the same parking lot, send me the designated spot, return the key to the lockbox and head on into the terminal. You're on your way back home!
WHAT ABOUT PICKUP AT DESTIN-FORT WALTON BEACH AIRPORT (VPS) AND DESTIN SECURITY AIRPORT (DTS)?
If you'd prefer CURBSIDE PICKUP, text me with your flight arrival time and then again when you have landed and picked up your luggage (I'll just need to know your exiting door). I'll be at the curb in 15 minutes or less.
IS THERE ANOTHER WAY BESIDES CURBSIDE PICKUP TO GET THE CAR WHEN I LAND AT THE AIRPORT?
You can rent the car via REMOTE ACCESS at the Destin Fort Walton Beach Airport (only). The way that the REMOTE PICKUP works is once you have rented the car from me, I will text you with instructions on how to obtain the key via a lockbox on the car, the parking space where the car is located and the combination to the lockbox. It's really quite simple and very quick!
CAN I RETURN THE CAR TO THE AIRPORT VIA REMOTE ACCESS ALSO?
Yes! When you arrive at the airport, park the car in Parking Lot A and put the key back in the lockbox, lock it back up, and text me with the location of the car. Then you just run in and catch your plane.
WHAT ABOUT TOLL ROADS?
For toll roads, we've got you covered! A SUN PASS transponder is on the windshield so you can drive on any toll roads in Florida. You will be billed after the rental is complete for the toll charges you incurred.
CAN I SMOKE IN THE CAR IF THE TOP IS DOWN?
NO SMOKING IN CAR PLEASE. I have a ZERO-TOLERANCE policy on this. There will be a $250 cleaning fee if this policy is violated (and I'm an ex-smoker with a nose like a bloodhound so I WILL smell smoke).
ARE THERE ANY OTHER FEES THAT I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT?
After the vehicle is returned and if there are any additional fees/fines due (tolls, tickets, taxes, parking fees, mileage overages, unreplaced fuel, late return fees, cleaning, smoking, etc) you will receive a message via Turo with the amount(s) due.
HOW DO I PUT THE TOP UP AND DOWN?
It's very easy (and quick) to put the top up and down. First, make sure you're in a safe place and The 'Stang is in park, then just pull the latches (by the visors) down and then push towards the respective windows. Push the button by the rearview mirror towards the rear of the car to open. (You don't need to roll down the windows first. They will automatically roll down when you push the button.) It'll take less than 10 seconds! To close the top, just do the opposite.. Push the button towards the front of the car, secure the latches and roll up the windows. Please remember to close the rear windows (I'm constantly forgetting to do that..Ugh).
HOW DO I LISTEN TO MY MUSIC?
It’s very easy to listen to your music. I’ve included an audio jack which you just plug into your phone and then push the audio button beneath the radio. Easy breezy!
