Mumbai online furniture & household rental

Let me share about my experience in online furniture & household rentals in Mumbai with Rent Kar De. This post was first published on Deexterous and you can find the original post here.

We recently traveled to India from the US with our 1 year old (Read post on surviving long haul flights) One of our major crunch points was luggage space. There was SO much take for baby and me, as well as gifts for friends and family. We also had domestic travel in India so we really had to think about what to carry and what not to (thanks to the Domestic luggage restrictions). We really wished there was basic baby stuff that we could probably rent in Mumbai.

We decided to just let go of the Car seat and stroller! yikeees!! Though these are life savers and a must have, we really needed to travel as light as possible and keep our hands free on board too.

The convenience of renting in association with rentkarde

When we landed in India, I was quite concerned about not having a Car seat and was also missing my stroller in the lovely weather (without him running all around)!

That’s when a friend suggested Rent kar de. They are an online marketplace where one can rent out any products and rent from various renters in a location most convenient to you.

Not only baby-related products but we also rented the game of Catan which clearly requires time to understand but so engaging for hours on end!

Here’s how I went about renting:

1) Booked the product on Rent Kar De

2) Contacted the renter

3) Requested for delivery

4) Gave deposit and a photo ID

5) Had it picked up, got my deposit refunded and ID proof back after the tenure!

If you have someone visiting and they require a crib for their baby – NO PROBLEM. Rentkarde!

You want to take your girl out for a ride but have no bike? NO PROBLEM. Rentkarde!

Have that special wedding to attend but don’t want to spend a bomb on a new outfit. NO PROBLEM. Get that Tarun Tahiliani outfit from Renkarde!

Your finally going on that solo trip to Leh? Fantastic! Get that GOPRO from Rentkarde and capture this once in a lifetime experience.

You got all that lovely decorations for your kids birthday party and don’t want to sell it off? Don’t let it rot under the bed. Rentkarde!

My family also decided to rent out a lot of things like card games, a foot massager, a handycam etc that are just lying around the house. These are “used less” products lying idle in the house and it may be useful for someone even for a couple of days. The biggest advantage is that instead of purchasing and hoarding products, you can just rent on need basis.

Their simple motto is “why buy or sell when you can rent”!

Rent Karde currently serves the Mumbai market but are steadily growing platform. You can now forget about wasting money on buying. Mumbai’s online furniture & household rental is a one-stop shop for all online rentals in household, furniture, electronics, baby items and much more.

Think before buying. Are you doing justice to your money?

Ever been so conscious about your spendings that you compromise on your likings? If you ask me, there have been several times when I drop the plan just to rebalance my pocket.Not in this blog but almost in all of my blogs I have mentioned that buying is now getting expensive. And do you know why? Because our needs are never satisfied. Those demands are endless and so money is never enough. That makes renting a crucial element to balance between likings and compromising.

This Friendship Day cut the old trend and create new.

And like every year, we are back to the search of knotted threads, friendship bands! As human beings, everyone are facing their own challenges, their own battle. Life already is knotted to bits, then why celebrate such an auspicious day with a knot again? :p
Someone has rightly said, “Of what we follow and of what we keep on following is what have already been followed before.”
How we celebrate this day, is how it used to be celebrated before. But aren’t you bored of the same old tradition? Of looking for different ribbons and bands, and categorizing different friends based on the colors of the bands. Closed one with a red band and not so closed one with a yellow and so on. Why not cut the old trend and bring in something new?
Instead of spending on different bands, deciding colors, making a lists, and wasting those bands, why not spend on something that is worth?
