LOS ANGELES, March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rentus.com, a new and unique platform has emerged as a viable opportunity to generate repetitive revenue from the items people already own. Rentus.com allows owners to rent their tools, equipment, sporting goods, cameras and other items to others. With Rentus.com people are becoming "Rent-Lords" and profiting from the Sharing Economy.
"As families struggle with high unemployment and underemployment rates, several opportunities to supplement family income with the help of technology are becoming more popular," said Rentus.com CEO Elias Chavando. "People are renting rooms in their homes to strangers on Airbnb and becoming taxi drivers with Uber and Lyft, Rentus gives them an alternative option without renting out your home or car."
Rentus.com is the only online and mobile marketplace where people can list items for rent to others. On the other hand, Rentus.com provides a place for consumers to find the best prices and availability to rent items for themselves.
According to a recent survey conducted on social media by Applied Marketing Strategies, the average American Family has about $5,000 in tools, equipment and toys in their garages and storage units. Renting these assets to others creates a recurring revenue source for families and individuals. Plus, by renting instead of selling, families don't get rid of items they may use in the future.
Owners and renters can communicate and ask each other questions in a secured and private messaging platform provided by Rentus.com. Once the rental is booked, both parties are given each other's details to arrange delivery or pick up of the rented item.
"The listings are free so there is nothing to lose and everything to gain. The owner of the item pays a small percentage of the transaction as a processing fee once the rental is completed," said Mr. Chavando.
Rentus.com is available online at Rentus.com and the Rentus.com mobile app is available for iOS on the iTunes store.
