Rentus.com on the Roll

Innovative Website to Expand Online Renting to Moving and at the same time, have mobile billboards

Los Angeles, CA—Beginning this week, Rentus.com is set to roll out the first of a fleet of moving trucks at a much cheaper price than the average moving company.  Rentus.com is the Airbnb for your ‘stuff,’ an online marketplace where users can list items to be rented, or rent items to use. The moving trucks are in addition to the other thousands of items already listed on Rentus.com. Users can rent a moving truck for $49.99 a day with 100 miles included and still have money left over to rent other moving materials.

“Moving is stressful enough without the high prices of a moving truck or moving company. Our moving trucks will give our users an opportunity to rent a truck for a reasonable price,” said Rentus.com Founder and CEO Elias Chavando.

Rentus.com Moving Truck and billboard

Renting a moving truck in the Los Angeles area and only going 100 miles can cost $200 or more. With Rentus.com you can not only rent the truck for under $50.00  a day, but also rent moving items as well. Moving dollies and hand trucks can cost you another hundred dollars to buy for a one time move. Rentus lets you rent these items for a day or even a few hours without paying full retail.

“We are able to rent the trucks at a much lower price and in return are having Rentus.com advertised throughout the city. The trucks will act as mobile billboards throughout the Los Angeles area while providing our users with a less stressful moving experience,” said Chavando.

Based in Los Angeles, Rentus.com went live on January. They have partnered with several rental businesses providing them with an inventory of thousands of items ready to be rented out. Peer to peer rentals are also taking off.

Rentus.com is currently available in Southern California and will be expanding to more markets in the United States and Europe.

Make Money Renting Out Your “Stuff”


Tech start-up Rentus.com has launched a website and mobile app that helps individuals make money by renting out things they already own. Founded by marketing and tech guru Elias Chavando, the new website makes it easy to rent just about anything. Owners of tools and equipment, party supplies, photo and video gear, medical equipment and sporting goods, can list items to rent out. Those in need of these things, can quickly rent and use them.

“Those holiday presents that would otherwise stay in your closet can be put to work for you,” says CEO Chavando.  Rentus provides a simple way for a household, college student, and anyone to make extra income.  For the power tool or the snow blower sitting in your garage that gets no use, Rentus gives you a way to put all that ‘stuff’ lying around to use, and puts some cash in your pocket as well.”

Rentus allows users to list an unlimited number of items for free and takes care of processing security deposits and rental and delivery fees. As soon as the renter returns the item, payment is transferred to the owner. Rentus earns a success fee to cover credit card costs and other expenses.

“It’s like eBay… but instead of buying, you simply rent for a day, a week, a month,” says Chavando.  “If you need to complete a project, need items for your vacation, or are in the mood to try a new hobby without spending money to buy stuff, this is the answer.”

“Whether you are the owner making money or the renter who saves money, Rentus can work for anyone.”

Prior to starting the online and mobile rental marketplace Rentus.com, Chavando served as director of the largest automotive marketplace and consulted for several multi-national classified marketplaces and companies, sports teams and associations. He also created a system that matches business partners based on a tested number of identifying factors. This system is used in matching Owners with Renters in Rentus’ person-to-person renting.

Rentus is available in Southern California and will be expanding to other markets in the United States and Europe.
