How and why did we come up with the idea of RentMyItems?
Ask yourself this...who doesn't have something they own that is under-used, or want the use of something but cannot justify the cost of buying their own or do not want to buy something as they do not have space to store it?
This is the situation we found ourselves in. We could make money from lots of things we ownif we
Bringing all these factors into play we thought it would be good if we can help you make some money, save money and be green by trading within your local community; and in many cases walking around the block to deliver/collect an item.
Add to this the fact that we do not charge a commission on any money you make when you list an item and arrange the rental for each trade, we simply charge a minimal listing fee after our free listing period ends. Therefore, as a Rentor, you know what your outlay is from the moment you list an item and will not be charged for renting an item. We believe that you should retain all of the income and do what you want with it - keep it, spend it, donate it to a worthy cause. The choice is yours. It's also up to you how you charge the Rentee - we do not restrict how you take the rental fee.
You don’t have to charge a rental fee; you may wish to see if somebody wants to swap items with you for a period of time.
We’re also keen to find out what you think about the site and anything you think that would enhance it so if you have any thoughts or comments do get in touch with us through our Contact us page.
In a nutshell, we are here to make the renting of items you own or want as easy as we can with a minimal listing fee and no other costs. You should feel good knowing that whilst you're doing this you are doing your bit for the environment, because if we don't look after it who will!
Spread the rental bug.
