Description

🆕New Turo users get a 💰 $25 credit when signing up with this link (copy and paste or type it). 💵 https://turo.com/c/kevins7 Scroll down and click on the Guidelines section below and read it carefully ! Write "You Agree" in your message to me when booking. If you don't I'll assume you didn't read it and will ask you to do so. 🌟I am a 3 year 5 Star average Turo Power Host with over 3,000 rentals under my belt. My response time to Turo messages and bookings is 2 minutes ! Read my reviews and be assured you are getting THE BEST customer service available here on Turo. 🚙I'm pretty OCD and my cars are ALWAYS washed, vacuumed, and filled up before each rental. No worries about getting a sandy or dirty car from me. I just request that my cars are also returned washed, vacuumed, and filled up before you return it (unless you add the post trip cleaning extra). ✈I live just 3.5 miles (12 minutes) from the airport so can pick up and drop off between 10am and 6pm as long as it doesn't conflict with another renter. Just make sure you select the Airport pickup option. 🆓I even give free rides to the airport after you return my car ! Now a little about the vehicle. Trust the safety of a Volvo. Open up the sunroof and let the sun in. This Swedish compact car has power everything and is loaded. Just doesn't have leather seats. Stock CD changer has an aux input cable for your cell phone or MP3 Player. Car has 2 USB charging ports as well. Cold A/C. Rear seats fold down for more trunk space. Safety features include front, side airbags, overhead airbags, anti-whiplash head restraints, and anti-lock brakes (ABS). Car also has power door locks and remote, power side mirrors, power windows, and cruise control. Check engine light is on because of bad catalytic converters. Does not affect drivability at all.

Guidelines

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY SO YOU DON'T GET FINED. ALMOST ALL OF THESE ARE TURO POLICIES but 95% of the people who rent do not read Turo's fine print so here are the major points. Turo's Fees and fines page: https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/203990780-Fees-fines Cancellation Policy Page: https://turo.com/policies/cancellation?locale=en_US Cleaning Fees Policy Page: https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000808347 Please respect me and my car. It is my personal car that either myself, my wife, or my mom or dad drives. Not a big corporation's. Please do not track sand or mud back into it. Do not eat or drink in the car. Spills and crumbs WILL occur no matter how careful you are and attract ants and cockroaches as well as cause stains. I do not have a detail crew like the big rental companies. The hours and sometimes days lost of leaving a car at a detail shop for cleaning, vacuuming, and/or deodorizing is not something I want to deal with. Turo's cleaning fees will apply accordingly. Ultimately it will be their call (not mine) based on the pictures I take and upload at the beginning and end of each trip. Unlike some of the other car owner's on Turo who don't care (I've heard horror stories about cars full of sand, roaches, urine / BO smells, etc), I take pride in my cars and ALL will be FILLED UP, washed, vacuumed, and Febreezed before you get it. Some may have permanent stains from the previous owner of the vehicle that do not come out with shampooing. These stains will NOT stain your clothes. My car must be returned with a full tank of gas as well as vacuumed and washed unless you prepay for cleaning or gas fillup in the Extras section. Please select them BEFORE the trip starts. You cannot add them AFTER. Turo fines for returning a car dirty without sand is $50 to $100 and WITH sand is $150 to $250 PLUS a $25 Turo administrative fee. Plan ahead. Save an hour of your time and money ! I upload over 100 photos of the interior (ceiling, under mats, under seats, trunk, etc.) and exterior of the car right before you pick it up so it WILL be documented. The closest gas station to my house is the Hele station at: 4259 Lawehana St, Honolulu, HI 96818. -> https://goo.gl/maps/7kAwtDikbaP2 It is YOUR responsibility to CHECK IN and CHECK OUT on the app so Turo knows when you picked up the vehicle or have returned it (the web site does NOT have the ability for you to check in or out so you MUST download the app to do so) and upload photos of your own. NO SMOKING (weed, cigarettes, vaping) OR PETS PERIOD ! MY SON AND I ARE ALLERGIC TO PET HAIR AND CIGARETTE SMOKE ! YOU WILL BE FINED ! Turo's smoking and pet hair cleaning fees range from $150 to $250. (Link in second paragraph). There are several car washes in Honolulu but the CHEAPEST one that you can go to without an appointment that washes AND vacuums is McKinley Car Wash at 1139 Kapiolani Boulevard, Honolulu, HI 96814. $16 for cars and $20 for suv's and van's. Please check on the Internet or call them regarding hours and holiday schedules. When it's slow, you'll be in and out in 20 minutes. When it's busy, it can take over an hour so budget your time accordingly. They do a so so job vacuuming sand and sometimes miss spots on the seats, under mats, in the trunk, etc. You have to WATCH them and tell them to revacuum missed spots. You'll have to go to a more expensive detail shop to get rid of a lot of sand. Of course you can go to ANY car wash / vacuum place you want or even do it yourself. They are just the cheapest on the island. Only the person on the Turo account can pick up and drop off the vehicle (Turo's Policy). Do NOT book for a family member or a friend as YOU will have to be there to pick up and drop off the car. You must bring a VALID (NOT EXPIRED) driver's license when you pick up the vehicle. Some people book cars way in advance and get their license revoked before picking up the vehicle. Some people have used stolen or fake licenses (yes it has happened). I will NOT release the vehicle if you do not have a valid license with your picture. This is also Turo's Policy. -> https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204727440-Do-I-need-to-check-my-guest-s-driver-s-license- I have a LIMITED NUMBER of GPS, child seats, bluetooth adapters, USB phone chargers, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, body boards, soft surf racks, and coolers. Please contact me before selecting them in the Extras section for availability. Only the USB phone chargers and bluetooth adapters are free. Some of my cars have built in bluetooth or usb charging as written in the car description section. If I have the Extra available, you will need to ADD them in the Extras section BEFORE the trip starts. You cannot modify them after you book the car. Garmin GPS's will cost $10 for the ENTIRE rental period and are not in the Extras section as Turo only limits 10 Extras. If damaged or lost, child seats cost $90, booster seats $35, GPS $110, USB chargers $12, and FM modulators $20. PLEASE SPECIFY if you need a GPS, USB phone charger or FM Modulator. If not, they may not be available when you pick up the car. You CANNOT leave the car at the airport or at a hotel. IF you do NOT book pick up and drop off and IF I AM AVAILABLE to drive you when you return the car, I will BEAT Uber's pricing at that specific time. If you have never used Lyft or Uber, sign up with my referral codes and get $5 to $10 off your first ride. Lyft: KEVIN23479 and Uber: 248wy6nzue Turo's number is 1-415-965-4525 and has free roadside assistance for towing, key lock outs, jump starts, and tire changes. For mechanical issues I may offer another car if available. If not, the trip will be ended and you will have to wait for the vehicle to be towed away. The rest of your trip will be refunded. These are 4 to 14 year old cars. Even 1 or 2 year old rental cars at the big agencies break down. NO EARLY PICKUPS OR LATE RETURNS. Turo only insures my vehicle and what it hits DURING the rental period. Had a renter get into an accident 7 minutes after I released the car to him 5 minutes early. Turo said I was very lucky it was 2 minutes into the trip otherwise I would not have been insured. The Turo insurance card will be in the glove box along with my registration. Turo charges $50/hour, up to $200 PLUS a $25 admin fee if you are more than 15 minutes late returning the vehicle (in the Turo Fees and Fines page in the second paragraph of this Guidelines section). If you are going to be late, extend the trip BEFORE the trip ends so you won't be charged the late fee. It's easy. Click "Change Trip" and change the return time as necessary. If there is a renter for the car right after you, you will NOT be able to extend and WILL be charged the late fee as it is unfair for the next renter. If you are going to return earlier than the scheduled time please inform me 2 HOURS ahead of time to make sure I am available. Do not show up early and expect me to be there to receive the car back. My cars ALL have a minimum 2 day rental. Turo does NOT refund early returns. No speeding, racing, or off-roading (gravel roads, sand, mud, red dirt areas, etc), even with my Jeeps. Be careful where you park or you may be ticketed and/or towed. We have Nazi metermaids and tow trucks here in Honolulu, especially in Waikiki. If you do not take care of the ticket, there will be Turo fees, court fees, and collection fees on top of the ticket cost. Cars get towed a LOT on Oahu. My renters get towed and/or ticketed 5 times a month. If you get towed, I will need to go down to the tow yard because it's registered to me and it's a hassle. I charge $60 to get the car out of tow (for driving probably at some unreasonable hour in the middle of the night or in rush hour traffic, waiting in line, you paying and them, them processing the payment, waiting some more for them to get the car out, and driving home after, usually taking over an hour and a half to deal with). IF ANY of these points bothers you, please DO NOT BOOK or if you already booked, PLEASE CANCEL THE BOOKING as soon as possible so Turo does not charge your card and you don't get charged canceling fees (second paragraph). Thank you.

We were traveling with a group of 5 to a family reunion and arrived hours earlier because we decided to rent from Kevin. It was a money, time, and stress saver. The car was clean and comfortable with a sunroof to enjoy. They dropped us off at the airport on the way back and were waiting for us on pick-up and drop-off with me changing our time twice making our first Turo experience unexpectedly easy and comfortable

Kevin is my go to guy when I need a car and I like trying all his different cars. I'm on the island without one and only need a car every now and then. Saves me money not having to pay for a parking space, maintenance, registration and insurance. Turo is also much cheaper than the big rental car companies like Enterprise and Hertz but the cars are older. He showed me the last review for the Volvo I just rented and the pictures he took of the interior when it was returned. It was definitely sandy and not vacuumed. If I let me friend borrow a car and they returned it like this I would be angry. His cars all 4 times I've rented were very clean. If I get a clean car to rent, I would consider it unrespectful to return it unclean. Kevin suggests to take it to McKinley Car Wash which is what I do before returning his cars. He also suggests that when they clean the car to watch carefully which is what I did. Twice out of the 4 times I went to them I had to tell them they missed vacuuming spots ! The Volvo runs great, has cold ac, two usb chargers, aux cable, and sunroof. The only thing I wish it had that I notice newer cars have is Bluetooth handsfree calling so I could talk on the phone while driving. He said the guy didn't tighten the gas cap all the way which caused the check engine light to come on so when I rented it I made sure to tighten the gas cap till it clicked 2 times. No check engine light came on during my rental or after I filled up. He said he is thankful that he has me as a good repeat customer and wishes all his renters would be like me. :D

Beware of cleaning loopholes at the end of the return. I followed the instructions to wash the car at host's designated car wash right before I returned the car and it was clean when I looked at it. I was later be requested for $50 cleaning fee. And the car is older and the "check engine" light came on the next day. The host replied "it is okay as long as it drives fine" when the "check engine" was reported to host. Just be very careful when renting from this host.
