Borrow your TV

A good friends truck burned this weekend. Something in the engine compartment. Unforetunately, he has a trip planned and is leaving this Saturday. I offered him my truck if something happens and he can't get his truck fixed. He said he'll most likely just buy another truck this week. When I hung up, my wife had this look of "YOU WOULD LEND HIM YOUR TRUCK??!!" She didn't have a problem with it, she just couldn't believe I made the offer. I've known him forever and I know how he is and how he treats his stuff so I had no problem with it.

So, got me to wonderin'...

Would anyone here lend their TV out to someone? (not family)

I would IF: (1) Have known them for at least 10 years. (2) They have towed without incident for at least that long. (3) Their vehicles don't look like they belong in a junk yard. (4) No outstanding warrants. (5) Etc. Etc.

We sort of have an unusual arraignment already.. Our driveway is too short to park our camper, our good neighbor and friend of 13 years lives right across the ally from us. He has a 50' long 3 car driveway.. His car is on it's last leg, and he for the most part works from home. (IT manager for a large company). Anyway, he lets us park our camper and TV in his driveway and in return he can use the TV anytime he wants.. He probably only drives 10 - 20 miles per week. Since the TV is a dedicated SUV just for the camper it is probably better that it gets driven a little each week instead of just sitting there for weeks for months at a time without being used... And you can see in my signature that I like to joke around with him about driving it...

Totally depends on who it is.an acquaintance...no. But my neighbor that I went to high school with, yes. Some crew members of my boat yes, one in particular, NO! That being said, my wife won't let me drive her car. I haven't driven it since the day I bought it. My son has never driven it.

I have a few friends I'd trust with my vehicle based on the way they treat theirs. I know my friends well enough to know they don't have warrants out on them. :0

Friends: NO; most of my friends treat their cars like crap, and most have never driven anything bigger than a small SUV. I would let my neighbor borrow it before any of my friends. I know my neighbor takes care of his stuff, and would take care of mine. I would probably do it, but I'd be wringing my hands the entire time, and ONLY if it were a pretty big emergency. But then my neighbors (all of them) are HIGHLY independent (like me) and would likely never ask in the first place unless it was some kind of emergency.

Family: Some yes, some no. My BIL; NO WAY! My dad or my brother; most likely yes; they both take good care of their vehicles, have towed A LOT of different things including TT's, and, most importantly, are financially solvent enough to take care of any damage!

I have one friend that I would loan my truck to as I trust him explicitly and we swap equipment regularly but if it was anyone other than him there is no way I would loan my truck to them.

There are people I lend my truck to, but I'd run it by my insurance agent to make sure coverage allows it.
