    Anyone who has rented an apartment surely paid a security deposit to cover damages. Escrow in our industry works basically the same.   It is money held in the event it is needed to cover freight damage, vehicle damage, property damage or failure to return company owned equipment such as Omnitracs, load bars and straps.
