Scheduling a long Lyft ride from Orlando airport to Sebring, FL (85 miles)

In a few weeks I'll need to get from the Orlando Airport to Sebring, Florida, which is a distance of 85 miles. I sometimes rent a one-way car rental, but they are so pricey right now and it's always chaotic at the rental agencies in Orlando. My Lyft app is telling me that the cost of this one-way ride is about $100, which would be worth it to me. My question is, I have read in some places that Lyft and Uber have limits on how far they will let you go, so any insight on that would be helpful. Secondly, how do I know that my driver is really willing to take me that far? Or that my driver doesn't have other commitments and wasn't thinking that they were going to pick up a ride that would occupy them for the next 4 hours? I was thinking about using the schedule in advance feature for 31 minutes ahead when my plane first touches down. This would, in theory, allow a driver to see my trip request and choose to do it. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you so much!
