You do the math

November 6, 2008

Below is a photo of two items which are regular rental items: A family car vs a paint spray gun.

car-vs-spray-gun

We don’t have to be a maths genious to work out that it’s a far better return on investment renting out the spray gun. It’s a wopping 50% Return on Investment…. versus a too small to calculate return on investment for the car.

The point is the renter is still getting a massive benefit in renting out the Spray gun even though ther ROI is very high for the owner who is renting it out.

The benefits to the person who rents the spray gun instead of buying it include:

– Still saves 50% of the cash to buy one

– Doesn’t have to store it and let it gather dust

– It’s better for the environment to have one less spray gun

– They get to meet someone in their local area

– Both parties win financially.

So the point to all you rentoiders out there is. Put some stuff up there to rent and you’ll be surprised at the returns on investment you can get. Some are very, very good. And everyone still wins.  It’d be worth checking out the prices to buy some items and do a mini entrpreneurial project.

And of course if you need any help and ideas on how to do it call us any time

Cheers, rentoid team.

Easy way to find photos (rentoid listings)

January 14, 2008

Here’s a tip for our fellow rentoid-ers:

* Get photos of your rental items straight from Google images. *

Unless it’s very unusual, you can usaully find an image on google images. We would recommend you mention in the listing that the photo is ‘similar’ to the ‘actual item’.

Many items like a certain digital camera, a lawn mower or a motorbike will have the exact model right there for you already photographed. Just ensure it is royalty free.

Given that people aren’t buying the item (like Ebay) it is usually Ok. It’s quicker and it’s much better than not having a photo.

Survive the heat !

January 10, 2008

If you’re in Melboure today you’ll know it is currently 42 degrees celsius / 108 Fahrenheit. It’s extremely hot!

So we thought it might be helpful to list a few survival tips which go beyond staying hydrated & wearing sunscreen:

  • Sit under a beach tent if in the sun
  • Go for a surf
  • Go for a boat ride (sea breeze is very cooling)
  • Sit in front of an air conditioner / air cooler
  • Make a fruit smoothie at home
  • Fill your freezer with home made cordial ice drinks
  • Go for a walk in the evening and get an ice cream
  • Remember to organise a weekend at a beach house
  • Take some photos at sunset or of the kids playing under the hose
  • Go snorkling (even if in a pool)
  • Turn on your misquito zapper for tonight
  • Have a BBQ with your friends & family in the cooler evening
  • Hose down the dog & then take it for a cooling walk
  • leave the office early

Yep… you can get any of the stuff you might need to do any of these things on rentoid.com  (BBQ’s, Freezers, Surfboards, beach tents, Snorkling gear, boats, air conditioners, cameras, blenders, beach houses, hoses and even a dog!)

…and if we haven’t got it listed, we’ll find a member who has it.

Stay cool. The rentoid team.
