Before you leave the lot
Make sure you check a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should:
- Check out your car and make certain there is no dents or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
- Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
