I dont think a $250 deposit is enough. You get a dog or cat that scratches the interior or soils the carpet and maybe the padding to where it has to be replaced that $250 doesnt cover it. I saw a couple in another companies truck let their medium size dog run out in the mud to do his business and when they got ready to go he just jumped in, muddy paws and all. I also think that if you are a smoker you should have to put a deposit down. Lets face it, a portion of our fellow drivers are slobs. Look at how they wash themselves, can you imagine the truck looks any cleaner? I saw a major companies 2009 Cascadia with 30,000 miles on it in a shop while I was getting mine serviced. The service advisor told me to go open the door. It stunk so bad and their was garbage about 3 inches deep on the floor. The bumper was broke, one side tank fairing was broke and both side extenders were bent. I dont know.
Don't trust anybody. Especially that guy in the mirror.
