The rental process is safe and designed to protect property owners, their property and renters. All transactions start with a request/reservation. Renters will request an item and property owners will review the request to make sure the item is available during the requested timeframe. The renters must pay a deposit through the website, and property owners can deny the rental for any reason.
Rent Llama also has a rating feature. After a transaction is complete, Renters will be able to rate the item they rented and the Property Owner. Property Owners will rate the renter. All ratings will be publicly available and negative ratings will result in users being banned from the site if necessary.
Creating a listing is FREE, so if you think you have something people might pay to use, go ahead and give it a try! If you want to ask about a specific item, contact us and tell us what you're thinking about renting. We can help determine if it's a good rental item and what you should charge for it.
When you list an item for rent, you will be asked if you will deliver the item, meet the renter at a neutral location or if the item is available for pick up. We highly encourage property owners to deliver items. Some people will only rent things if they are delivered. But its completely up to you!
Rent Llama is currently only available in Richmond, Virginia. We'll be rolling out to new cities very soon. If you want Rent Llama in your city, use the form at the bottom of any page to let us know.
