Rentoid fee guarantee

May 3, 2009

As we mentioned previously we have changed the rentoid payment system to the following method:

We now have an instant connection process. So when you rent an item there are 3 simple steps:

Step 1. You simply pay a 5% deposit (which is fully refundable if the rental falls through)

Step 2. You get the owners phone number and email on screen – immediately. You also get their details emailed to you.

Step 3. You then call the owner of the item and get renting.

All rentoid payments are now made via PayPal. Which means that we can take payment either via your credit card or via your PayPal account in the most secure environment available on the web.


If the rental agreement is canceled for any reason – we have a 100% guaranteed refund of your 5% deposit. No questions asked.

We call it the rentoid guarantee!

New Quicker, Easier Rental Process

March 22, 2009

Here’s a video explaining the new easier and quicker rental process on

Instead of having to wait for an approval process, all rental details of the owner of the item are now given immediately. Both on screen and via email. Payment of a 5% deposit (100% guaranteed) is made to confirm the rental and the owners details are given. So you can call them immediately and get renting. All payments are now made via PayPal which is very secure. Payments on PayPal can be made with credit card, PayPal account or via your even your bank account. All of which occur in a secure secure environment.

The bottom line is that we now get connected with renters straight away, with zero waiting on which makes the site more much easier to use and speeds up the service dramatically.


The history of video games

March 17, 2009

If you’re a video game freak like me, then you’ll love this tidy little video on the history of video games. It is retro cool,  but also shows how far technology has come. Which then you can relate to our every day lives. Fascinating.

Now, if you have some of these retro games, or my fav of all time an Atari 2600 – then get it up on rentoid for rent. We have a whole heap of video game tragics screaming for stuff like this – list it here and make some cash.

Cheers, Steve –


Rentoid HQ fun

March 10, 2009

I had a dream to make this ad last night.

So after lunch me and Luke jumped on the bike and did this little stunt. Ross filmed it, and Luke turned it into our little homemade advertisement, which quite franly we think is pretty cool for 15 minutes of effort and zero expense. (Except for the fact I split my favourite jeans doing it – oh well)

What do you reckon? Pretty innovative, and well rentoid is even more innovative! Woot Woot.


Short message from Chief Espresso Maker

March 10, 2009


March 9, 2009

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!

Rentoid presentation – Business 3000 awards

March 1, 2009

As you may know has been nominated for the City of Melbourne Business 3000 awards. Which you can read all about by clicking here:

In the interim you can watch our Chief (Espresso Maker) Steve Sammartino giving a 3 minute talk about rentoid and why the team love our business and what we do.

2 Things:

1. If you wondering whose noggin that is in the fore ground, it is Luke McCormack’s, one of the rentoid crew, enjoying a nice cup of tea.

2. If you’re wondering why the filming is so shakey, it’s because another rentoider Ross Hill filmed it on his mobile phone. A pretty good effort with a limited tool.
