Make money from your Spring clean!

Sorting through your stuff can be a daunting task, that you want to put off, but it's an essential step if you're considering renting out items you no longer need and well worth doing to top up your income! Whether you're looking to declutter your home or earn some extra money, renting out your items can be a great way to put your belongings to good use, reducing their carbon footprint while doing so. Here are some tips for organising your stuff and listing them for rent.


Start by decluttering

Before you can organise your belongings, you need to declutter your home. Go through your items and decide what you no longer need or use. Consider donating items to charity shops or selling items that are in good condition but not suitable for renting on places like Vinted and Rumage.

Categorise your belongings

Once you've decluttered, group your belongings into groups such as electronics, sports equipment, or tools. This will make it easier to list items for rent and keep track of what you have too!


Determine the condition of your items

Before listing your items for rent, assess their condition. Items in good condition are more likely to be rented out, so take the time to clean and repair any items that need it.

Research rental prices

Do some research on rental prices for similar items in your area. This will give you an idea of how much you can charge for your items and help you set a competitive price. See our blog on pricing rental items for more info.


Take quality photos

To attract renters, take clear and high-quality photos of your items. Make sure to take photos from different angles and highlight any special features or details or accessories that are included.

List your items for rent

Now that you've sorted through your belongings and assessed their condition, it's time to list them! Signing up to RentMy and listing your items take less than 5 minutes and if you've got lots of items, our team are always on hand to help you list them.


Make money from the things you already own!
