THE PEERRENTERS APP WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE APP STORE IN MAY.
Our mission is to help environmentally liked-minded individuals in pursuing a positive, ecologically friendly life-style through the development of trusted, local, peer sharing economies.
Peer renting makes it easier to reduce our consumption footprint, and the PeerRenters app also helps people save money, as well as make money. Which is a good thing given the state of our economy these days.
So next time you need something, instead of going to store and putting out a lot of cash to buy it, why not consider just renting it, ideally from someone close by in your community.
Most of us don’t need extra stuff, specially things that only get used occasionally. If you could spend $10 or $20 to rent something you need for short-term use, instead dropping $200 for something that will sit in your closet most of the time, it might be better for you to rent it and save the cash for something else. Like going for sushi! Or a weekend getaway.
Conversely, if you have stuff laying around collecting dust, many items are actually rentable assets that someone else might need to use temporarily, which can bring you rental income. You’d be surprised what other people might need to rent from you.
All kinds of things lend themselves to be rented between people in your community, including kids stuff, books, music, DVDs, games, electronics, stuff for the yard, office, kitchen or home, clothing and sporting goods, even vehicles and accommodation.
The PeerRenters app is super easy to use, and is free to download for both the iPhone and iPad. If you have stuff kicking around, take a few minutes and get it listed. And next time you need something, don’t buy it. First check the PeerRenters app to see if you can rent it.
