Love Camping, But Hate the Cost and Hassle of Buying the Gear? Try Rentuu.

Ahhh, camping. There’s something special about bypassing the familiar glitz and glam of hotels and getting real close to nature. The campfires, marshmallows, fresh air, slightly creepy but strangely reassuring sounds of wild animals and birds in the distance and unparalleled starry night sky make camping in the wild an experience like no other. But there is a significant downside: stocking up on camping essentials can get very tedious and expensive, especially if you’re a first-time camper. Tents, sleeping bags, air mattresses (yes, air mattresses - why suffer when you can sleep comfortably?!), lanterns and cooking grills are not only expensive, but also take up precious storage space. Plus, we’re all about being green and eco-friendly, which means reducing unnecessary consumption. That’s why we recommend hiring camping equipment instead of buying it. For starters, if you rent a tent instead of buying one, you can test it out to see if it suits your needs in the first place. Second, you don’t have to feel guilty if you end up hating the whole experience. We all know the feeling of committing to a purchase, only to realise weeks down the line that you didn’t really need it. And finally, you don’t have to worry about making space in your house to store a huge tent. So how does this hiring camping stuff thing work, exactly? It couldn’t be easier. All that’s required of you is to choose your gear, select a delivery slot and with a few easy clicks, your camping needs will be delivered straight to your doorstep within 24 hours. Told you it was easy. Are the items really any good, you ask? Well. Look at it this way. Have you ever borrowed something from a friend or colleague, only to discover it’s, er, in a less than stellar condition? That won’t happen if you hire your camping equipment with Rentuu. See, Rentuu was designed with precisely this problem in mind - P2P, ‘borrow-a-tent-from-a-neighbour’ type of platforms just weren’t delivering the quality and cleanliness we wanted. What we wanted was the ability to borrow high-quality products from trusted brands, delivered swiftly and in immaculate condition. We also didn’t want the faff that often comes with hiring camping essentials online. Basically, we felt your pain, so we delivered. Better still, you can rent your camping equipment for as little or as long as you need it. The longer you hire it out for, the cheaper it gets. And you can get everything you need from one place, too - from a two-person pop-up tent, to a more sophisticated tunnel tent, portable lantern and camping firebowl with a grill. Everything you hire will be delivered straight to your home, and collected from you when you’re back from your trip.
