April 14, 2009

I actually didn’t even know you could rent cars this cheap.

Rent a Toyota Corolla for $35 a day or  a week for only $175!


Or how about a Ford Falcon for only $43 a day


Or that family trip – rent a toyota tarago with 8 seats for only $154 for a week.


All incredible value. You see all these options by clicking here and here.

Cheers, rentoid team.

Alright! So here’s the 411:

University is back! (well at least down here in sunny-one-day, rainy-the-next Melbourne, it is).

Here is the inescapable truth; Uni books are way too expensive for any self respecting uni student to spend all their hard earned on!

I mean come on – beer Vs uni books. Everyone knows who wins that battle. Hell, one book will set you back a minimum of 100 large (and we’re talking bare minimum here)! Multiply that by four or ask the Maths nerds to do it for you… and you’ll soon realise the hip pocket is about to go for ten rounds with Mohamed “the credit card” Ali!

So what’s the solution?

Simple! Don’t buy uni books… RENT THEM!


And it’s so easy. Rent out your old books from last semester then use that cash to pay for the rental of this semester’s books… It’s the perfect solution.

This means you’ll be getting this years Uni books for free… Brilliant, we know!

You’re welcome.

Check out a few books here and then put some of your own to work and start making money!

Kids & Money – Lauren Greenfield

December 2, 2008

Here’s a trailer from the film Kids & Money which was produced by Lauren Greenfield. Lauren has done some great work to critical acclaim on areas including Youth Culture, Gender, Body image, eating disorders and general popular culture.

At rentoid – the truth is we have some of these High end Rockstar items for rent, and I wonder if we are exacerbating the situation….  or helping people save money?

Maybe some savvy kids will use the site to start a mini entreprenurial business?

At a minimum I hope we are at least giving people the option for a smarter allocation of their scarce resources.

Critical Mass – Bike Ride

November 30, 2008

Critical Mass is a bike ride which happens in cities around the world for a whole heap of good reasons you can see by clicking here, or hereWords from there website:

“CM is intended to be a celebration, not an opportunity to cause trouble. Those who want to try to tie up traffic as much as possible and be confrontational with motorists are missing the point. We can assert our right to the road without being rude about it. Focus on the ride, not on the cars that also happen to be on the road.”

Here’s some photos a rentoid team member snapped on Friday in the Melbourne CBD as the cyclists zoomed by.






Rentoid is stoked that we have a city of people with the initiative to get this eco meme happening. Oh, and if you need to rent a bike for the next ride, we’ve got plenty you can see by clicking here…

LA Motor Show – Green car of the year

November 26, 2008

The LA motor show is on and Greencar has just announced its green car of the year. here’s a cool youtube video on it for rentoiders to watch.

It’s the VW Jetta TDI. We’d be interested to hear your thoughts. Yep.

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.


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.

Selling your House?

October 14, 2008

Posted by orangegirl.
We all know that not only buying, but selling a house is a costly business. With all the garden landscaping, cleaning, wanting everything nice before your open day or auction. Why not rent everything from ?

Rent a nice lounge suite to brighten up your loungeroom, fairy lights to make your garden attractive in the evening (and lets face it alot of people drive around after dinner looking for houses for sale). Imagine the nice photo taken at dusk with those nice lights on making your home stand out. Also, rent art for the walls, and nice potted plants for each room. Presentation is everything. So when selling, think to help give you a better price.

Our home and lifestyle category is Chokas… Check it out here.

And hey, while you’re at it, rent a trailer to move 😉
