I'm probably going to rent a pickup from a private party on the rental site. $35 a day. Beats $18/hour from Home Depot. I can take my time picking up some sheetrock, a door, and some roofing shingles. The guy even delivers his truck to my house.

Some jaw dropping cars available locally for private rental. One guy has a 2014 BMW 4Series a 2014 Benz GLK and a Land Rover. He is essentially a private rental company specializing in luxury exotics.

I don't know of any place renting late model exotics like this guy. Let alone for a couple $100 bucks. let alone for 1 day.

$1,000,000 liability insurance is covered under the contract of the rental agency. Included in the daily rate. Plus drivers are pre-screened to week out bad drivers.

::::Think about how you treated that rental car??
::::


Most people treat rental cars respectfully. Sure there are yahoos who rent once every 10 years and feel entitled to pull hole shots with rental cars. Those nitwits are the exemption. Most renters are road warriors who rent weekly, the rental is a tool of the job, not a toy. If anything, the rental is boring for them. Your basic sedan. Just a self driven taxicab.

Why do you think the majors don't rent to under 25 year olds? Because a 19 yo is still a child. He will drive like a wild person.

Wonder who'd be that hard up or strapped for cash to even try doing something that silly...or even had a clue as to the liability they placed themselves in.

Very commonly done today. Lots of people rent their cars for an hour or a day. I've perused the offerings on rental services, there are some great cars available to rent.
