its not about being 'paid twice' its about a standard rule that applies to all, if you damage, you pay for it, simple as that

That having been said, I'm of two minds about this.

On one hand, do the damage, pay to fix it. On the other hand, you've just collected double for a single repair. using this same logic, a shady (or even just 'efficient') rental agency could collect damages from each person who rents the car over 3 years never fixing anything, then having the whole thing done at once and pocketing both the interest and the difference. Even if we get one person putting $150 worth of damage every 2 months, that's still $2700 over three years. And that's a lot more than a fresh respray from a place like Maaco (which honestly is all it would need to be sold as a mint car).
i completely agree with you, but if the sleazeball place never fixed their dings and scrapes, chances are people would stop coming to rent their cars, so there is a business risk associated with that plan of action

It's actually not that bad of a thing to do only if you wax it right away after of course.
