Reducing hospital boredom

September 22, 2008

Post by OrangeGirl

Is someone you know unfortunate enough to be stuck in hospital?

Jump onto rentoid and rent them a portable DVD player, some DVD‘s, a handheld games console, books, or even a portable CD player to help pass the time. The items will be very much appreciated as we all know how much fun hospitals are dont we 😉 And renting something is much more enviromentally sound than buying flowers that will only be thrown in the bin a few days later.

C’mon, give something to your loved one that not only will keep then entertained while recovering and stimulate their mind instead of looking at four walls. Most of all it shows you are thinking of them and care about their sanity. And who knows, one day you might be stuck in bed and yor friend will come to the rescue with items from



Get your 12 seconds of fame

September 10, 2008

There’s a great website called 12seconds that is –

You can record a 12 second speil about yourself, an idea a business or anything really. So the rentoid CEE – which stands for Chief Espresso Maker ‘Steve’ – did a little 12 second spot taliking about the belief he has in what he does – rentoid that is… well you can click here to see it for yourself.

In fact – we’d love to hear what you think….

Why not do a 12 second spot on giving us your thoughts – good / bad / how we can improve and we’ll post it up here on rentoid for your 15 minutes of fame – well, 12 seconds actually.

Fathers day ideas

August 27, 2008

With fathers day coming up why not rent your Dad a motorbike for the day.  Seriously – it’s got to be better than a tired old pair of socks , tie or a singing mullet!

We all know that every guy who owns a motorbike dreams of owning a Harley but few can afford one, SO RENT ONE.

Or what about a fishing boat, a video camera to film that bbq (rented on of course) or even a sports car. How about a Porche convertable for the day at a lazy $400?

It’s all here on rentoid – a better and easy Fathers day gift.

Temporary needs

August 21, 2008

Be prepared to be blown away…. Seriously. It’s going to shock you… well kind of.

Pretty much all of our needs are temporary. We actually use our bed more than any other item we own. So what is our real usage of stuff we use much less often? When we break it down to “time available”, it’s quite surprising. I thought I’d start with our biggest expense – the car.

The average usage of cars is as follows:

10,000km per annum = 1.8% of time available

25,000km per annum = 4.7% of time available (average in Australia)

50,000km per annum = 9.4% of time available

* This means that for more than 90% of the time the car we own is idle. Which then means 2 things. We could either rent a car when we need one…. or even better rent out ours when we are not using it. Especially if it is a bit of a bomb! it’s an asset of real value just sitting there….

Imagine all the other idle assets you own which you could be making money from.
