It’s a no brainer that sharing is cheaper than buying. Especially if you don’t use it that often. If you want to get a bike to explore the city or try to get some biking exercise, going for a rental bike will definitely save you a ton of money. Living simply is the modern idea. Sometimes we need something, but we don’t need it forever. “Disownership” gradually becomes the mainstream. Instead of selling them once a year in your garage sale for something less than $5.00, you can make your money back by renting them out to other people.
Rentything.com was born when the creator–Martin, needed some tools to help his parents move (www.rentything.com). Not until then did he realize the market needs for renting platform. If you need a big stereo for a kids’ party, you can rent it for $30/day; or a hammock for $2/day. One can argue that you can get something cheap off Craigslist, but Rentything.com has a built-in trust system. You can easily learn who you rent to and from. If you have a lot of stuff lying around the house, why not becoming a business owner and start renting stuff out on Rentything.com?
