Share, Borrow or Rent Tools and Items

December 8, 2008 by

Some tools in the house such as the hammer, screwdriver, electric drill, handsaw, ladder and toolbox are not used frequently. If you have these tools, share them with your relatives and friends. If you don’t have the tools, you can ask around and borrow them. By sharing and borrowing, you reduce the need to buy new tools and free up storage space.

You can also borrow or share other items like newspapers, magazines, party decorations, cutlery, kitchen appliances, audiovisual equipment, CDs, DVDs, etc.

BlockPooling is a social network for neighbourhoods and you can use the platform to share and borrow items from your neighbours.

Rent Instead of Buying

Renting items is cheaper than buying them, and by reusing an item among several people, it helps to reduce the resources used in its production and packaging, and creates less waste disposal after its use.

Rent Tycoons provides a platform that allows you to rent out your items to others and earn money.

Other rental services include:

1. Rent home and office furniture:

2. Rent VCDs and DVDs:

3. Rent children toys and baby equipment:

4. Rent designer bags:

5. Rent maternity wear and gowns:

There are also rental services for sports equipment, audiovisual equipment, books, electrical appliances, computers and more. So before you buy something, think about whether you should rent it instead.
