CameraLends - peer-to-peer camera rental
On January 1, 2014, I left my full-time job to pursue my year-long side project. CameraLends is a peer-to-peer camera rental community. If you're familiar with Airbnb, it's a pretty similar concept. If you have camera gear that you don't use all the time (and who does!) then slap those pricy puppies on CameraLends so that others can rent it from you. Or, if you're a [hopeful] photographer, you can hop onto the site and rent gear from local photographers. Because our inventory is people powered, you have the option to do 1-day rentals (something most camera shops won't let you do) and make last minute requests. Basically, whatever the lender and renter can agree upon is kosher with us.
Worried about damage, you say? As a lender, you shouldn't be -- CameraLends has you fully covered in the case of damage. And as a lender, you can purchase a damage waiver for 15% of your reservation that covers up to $2500 worth of damage.
