Rent stuff. Rent your stuff. Earn money. Protect the planet.
Published 8 February 2022
Let’s cut to brass tax, people. We are all aware of climate change and its impact on our planet. Single-use plastics, mindless consumerism and a lack of focus on sustainability are fast-tracking the deterioration of our environment. It’s time for these things to change.
Unfortunately, the thought, “it’s too hard to change the way things are,” is a common occurrence. Perhaps you’re exasperated, thinking there can’t possibly be a better way of doing things. Well, we’re here to ease your wandering mind. But more importantly, we’re here to tell you that we don’t buy it!
What is Releaseit?
Releaseit is the ultimate online rental marketplace, and we’re here to disrupt retail consumerism on behalf of the planet. But what does that even mean? Well, we firmly believe in rejecting the status quo of consumerism.
Buying more stuff at the expense of mother earth isn’t just old-fashioned; it’s out of fashion. That owning things that don’t get used isn’t just wasteful; it’s harmful.
We are on a mission to call out consumers who are constantly buying, using, disposing and feeding into a linear economy. We are moving away from this outdated way of doing things by replacing it with a circular economy, where we all buy less and borrow more.
As consumers, we have always defaulted to purchasing because rental has never been at the forefront of our minds. However, with Releaseit renting as an option, you won’t have to drain your pockets. Next time you need a new dress for that party or want some new gear for that camping trip – don’t buy it; Releaseit!
We’ve partnered up with some reputable Australian rental companies to give you the one-stop-shop for all your rental needs. If you are an item seeker looking to rent items online, Releaseit gives you exclusive access to the best in class rentals without having to spend a fortune or having the hassle of storing something you’ll only use once (or twice).
Then there’s the possibility of renting from your neighbours, including old mate up the road. With community rentals, you can borrow John’s hacksaw over the weekend, and he can borrow your karaoke machine. And the best bit is, you both get paid.
Rent what you need when you want
When we think about renting, we typically conjure up the classics: hiring a car, holiday rentals or renting an outfit. But we know there is much more potential within the rental market. Have you ever thought you could rent white goods? Like that fridge sitting unused in your garage or that heater that stays in storage most of the year?
Releaseit is trailblazing the industry by unifying all things rental and making it accessible at the touch of a button. Because let’s face it. We all have excellent stuff lying around the house, just waiting to be used again. If you’re an item owner, our easy-to-use platform provides a convenient way to earn extra cash with the stuff you already own.
How to use Releaseit
Now you know who we are. We want to know who you are. Joining the Releaseit community to start your renting journey is super easy for seekers.
With Releaseit, you can rent household items, anything from a drone to a designer handbag. Simply browse our categories and select what you want to rent.
Once you select an item, one of two things will happen. If what you want is from an existing rental business, you will be redirected to their website, where you will complete the transaction following their terms and conditions.
Otherwise, you have chosen an item from another conscious consumer in the Releaseit community. In this case, you can select your dates on our interactive calendar and request to rent them. Once the owner has accepted the request and you’ve made arrangements to pick up and drop off the item, you can enjoy an epic experience with your rental.
If you are keen to list an item as an owner on Releaseit, we’ve made the process just as simple. Follow the prompts, then once you’ve added all the details to your item, publish the listing and patiently await those booking requests! Our trusted messaging system will make it easy to coordinate with seekers so you can enjoy the extra cash ASAP.
Why use Releaseit?
Because it’s good for the environment, your wallet, and for fun!
It’s simple, if you rent items over buying, you reduce waste by reusing what is already available. We have way too much stuff on this planet, and with the average Aussie sending 23 kilos of clothing to landfills each year, this is not sustainable to maintain. By contributing to the circular economy, you are helping to reduce the overconsumption that’s harming our planet.
On our platform, you can rent goods for a fraction of the cost of buying – so if you are on a budget, Releaseit has got you covered. Also, if you’ve been searching for a side hustle to boost the bank account, earn some extra moolah by listing things you already own on our website.
Last but not least, use Releaseit for the fun of it. By accessing the latest and greatest brands through our platform, you can unlock a world of experiences. From kayaking to snowboarding, caravanning to yachting, DJing to gaming, with Releaseit, the possibilities are endless.
We truly believe that experiencing new things doesn’t have to take a toll on your wallet or the planet. You can do more and waste less by renting with Releaseit!
