Don’t be fooled by the name. Fat Llama, backed by Y Combinator after a Series A funding round for $10 million, is changing the way we get our hands on the products we need. After launching in November 2016, the company has been connecting people willing to rent out their stuff to others who need it now.
You can rent anything from drones, professional cameras, and DJ equipment, to baby saucers and clarinets. All you have to do is list it on the site and wait for someone interested to contact you about a pick-up location.
Believe it or not, that guitar you have in storage collecting dust might be needed by someone in your area. Rent it out to make some money and rest assured it’s backed by Fat Llama’s item insurance protection.
You might be thinking there’s not much money to be made from renting out your unused crap. But if you thought that you’d be wrong.
These guys have made thousands of dollars so far which means you probably can too.
Fat Llama is no joke. The company currently operates in New York but seems to be picking up traction. They’ve been featured in Forbes and TechCrunch and are backed by Y Combinator.
If you’re interested and currently residing in New York, download their app and give it a shot. I’m curious to see how easy the process is.
