2012 Focus SEL, which may sound not that impressive but It's a great little get around rig that I regularly get 34+ mpg in and fun to drive for an economy styled sedan. (Doesn't look too bad either if you ask me) She's really comfortable and tight with heated leather seats, premium sound system, GPS Navigation, Sync Voice control system, backup camera and a sun roof! (I know right?) It'll get you up the mountain, to the lookouts, even to see the Bridges of Washoe county if that's your thing. The rig is kept extremely clean and absolutely no smoking in it. If something happens and a major mess occurs that needs cleaning, we'll figure it out. Typically that will mean having a place clean it and a receipt presented for reimbursement, but I don't anticipate that will be a problem for you. See the "FAQs" section if you want more information regarding: 1) What two pictures are needed for a blind drop? 2) Delivery fees? 3) Need Car Seats? 4) Concerned about possible winter/snowy conditions during your rental?

Parking details

Parked in the most economical parking at the airport when that is the pickup location depending on rental arrival. Worst case $10/Day long term outside lot. Alternately can park in any safe location desired.


Non-Smoking rig, that's pretty much it. I just try to keep it as clean as possible in my every day life and ask the same. Regarding small incidental damage: 1) New paint chips 1/16th in diameter or larger that do not require the entire panel to be repainted are a Flat $10.00 charge. 2) If the vehicle is returned with a lingering odor (something that does not dissipate by the next morning after pickup), such as when a guest smoked in the vehicle, it's a minimum $50.00 for the extra detailing I have to do to correct the issue. If the issue is significant and requires professional detailing, Turo supports up to a $200.00 fee. 3) If returned without filling it back up with fuel, a $5.00 surcharge will be assessed on top of whatever fuel cost is.


  • What two images do you need for a Blind Drop and what does that mean?
    Due to Instant booking, my delivery method is typically a blind handoff, meaning the Guest and myself will never meet face to face. Turo requires guests to provide host owners with two pictures for remote key handoffs for their insurance protection to be valid. Preferably not before 24 hours of the reservation starting. 1) A close-up photo of their driver’s license so you can verify the date of birth, license expiration date, and that the name on the license matches the name on the trip. (Tell the guest to obscure the first few digits of their license number in the photo for their safety.) 2) A photo of your guest holding their license next to their face so you can verify that the photo matches the person presenting it. Reference the date of birth on the license to help verify identity. The images should be checked into the "Trip Photos" section of the reservation info area. You may send these images to me directly and I will check them in for you if you find that easier. Please copy/paste the following link for details: Please See the "Remote Verification" section.
  • Do you have any delivery fees?
    1) Yes to the Airport and Guest Chosen location to partially cover the fuel needed to deliver and retrieve. Round trip is 40 miles and Turo takes a cut of the fee. Similar to the parking garage cost, I pay for half and I ask the guest to pay for the other half. For trips 3 days or longer I will waive this fee. 2) If you require an in person handoff between 10PM – 7AM, I’m going to ask an additional $20-30 fee for obvious reasons.
  • You have carseats available?
    Also have 2 convertible car/booster Step 2/3 seats available if you require. I remember how much of a pain traveling with your car seat can be, and they will be properly installed if asked for. The seats cloth parts are removable and cleaned/sanitized each time they are used as you can see in my pictures. I found that it takes enough time and effort I charge $15 per car seat.
  • Winter - Snowy/Slick road conditions during reservation.
    During the local winter season I install the highest traction rated studded tires. In addition I have the correctly sized set of chains in the vehicle at all times during the winter months. I provide chains for the guest's convenience and safety. Chains are checked after each reservation. If they have significant wear, a fee will be assessed to cover the percentage of cost for a replacement. Chains run $90, and driving them on bare pavement for just 1/2 of a mile will wear them significantly. Intermittent 5, 10, 50 foot patches of bare pavement may be unavoidable, but worn chains can break at any time and result in significant body/paint damage. This has occurred once and resulted in over $900 damage to the paint of a single fender. For this reason I replace them every time they are over 50% worn. This sometimes occurs in a single reservation, so please be aware if they are used improperly (driven on pavement without any snow/ice/slush) I will request reimbursement. If you have never installed chains and think you may need to during the reservation, I will be happy to run through the procedure with you.

One of the best I have ever had! For sure will book again

Easy to pick-up & return the car. Left a kit in the car which included water bottles, aspirin, Tums, candy, gum, snacks, etc. A nice touch, and the Advil came in handy after a day of skiing.

Amazingly easy process, excellent and fast communication, and Derek's bag full of goodies and water were the cherry on top!!!

Derek was very helpful and communicative and the car was very safe to drive in snow conditions. He takes really good care of his cars and would highly recommend renting from him!
