Whether you want to rent out your stuff to make some extra money or rent an item you've always fancied trying or need the use of, getting started with RentMy is super easy! Here's some simple steps to get you started, but first a very warm welcome to our awesome rental community.
The RentMy community is based on trust - after all we're sharing our prized possessions with other people! The connection and community feel you gain from interacting with other users all enhances this and in the background you know our triple lock security checks has your back, just in case! We take the safety of our users very seriously and are always monitoring transactions to ensure you are safe. Our customer support team is also on hand to help with any concerns you may have and answer your questions.
Congratulations on joining the rental revolution! Renting is a great way to reduce our carbon spend and utilise things we already own. In the last few years the sharing economy has gone from strength to strength and as we head into a recession, democratising the economy by allowing everyday people to make an extra income, or side hustle, is the way forwards. You are an early adopter of this and the more you spread the word the quicker it will grow!
Accuracy and reliability
We encourage our users to ensure their profiles and listings are as accurate as possible. If you get what you see there is no room for deceit! We don't expect you to update your profile picture every time you dye your hair, but having a profile photo and bio that is relevant and up to date allows our users to get to know each other and creates a stronger community within the platform.
Creating an account
It takes less than 5minutes! Take a look at our full instructions.
To get renting you must be verified, this includes uploading your photo ID, telling us your DOB and address and submitting your bank details for cross reference. The process is the same one that banks use and it ensures our users are exactly who they say they are!
Book a rental
You can search for item categories in the location of your choice - from here browse all the items available, filter it down to something more specific or simply book the first one you see! Booking is easy and providing you are already verified, takes only a few minutes: choose your dates, book now and add any extra info required.
Create a listing
Once you're signed up you can create a listing, however it won't be active on the site until you are verified. When creating your listing it is important to be as accurate as possible with the information and try to think of what a renter might need to know before booking so there are no surprises!
