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.

'Climate Change' is the sympton

January 23, 2008

Climate change is regarded by many as the biggest problem facing the global community.  It’s an issue that is unlikely to be resolved any time soon due to the fact the climate change isn’t the problem. It’s actually the symptom.

The problem is excessive consumption.

Everything we do (consume) happens to emit greenhouse gases. Driving, eating, buying, mining and buildings all consume energy and resources being manufactured, delivered and used.  Governments and corporations are unlikely to encourage reduced consumption because apparently, growth is good.

We don’t have to stop living to make a difference. Nor can we simply offset carbon emmissions and imagine everything will be Ok. Simple things like walking to the shop, and renting some items instead of buying them will make all the difference.
