The old rent your car/RV/other thing via a rental manager system. Nothing new is going on here and it has all the same pitfalls as it has for years.
You find the company that runs this rarely can replace lost, broken during use hardware.
Given I've seen this before I know to never go near such a company.
I am starting a peer-tp-peer rental site where the owners of projectors, screens and other AV equipment can post their gear for rent within their communities. The site is called SpokeSwap.com, and currently has some listings in San Francisco and Cambridge, MA. I have a few questions that I would really appreciate some help with:
1. Would you be willing to rent our any of your AV equipment?
2. Would you describe any of your gear as being under-used?
3. Do you find it appealing to earn money from your equipment?
Thanks for your help guys.
