Rent, don't buy

Most of us don't like to rent things. Usually, purchasing an item is sounder financially.

But there are times when it makes more sense to rent. If you're only going to use something once, renting it is more sensible.

Maybe you need a camera lens for an upcoming shoot. Or, you could need a tool to complete a home improvement project. In that case, check Zilok.

Zilok connects owners and renters. Just enter the item you'd like to rent and your location. There's a good chance you'll find what you need close by.

I'm sure you have some things you might like to rent out, too. In that case, sign up as an owner. You can get started renting out your belongings in no time.

If you rent an item, Zilok does not charge a fee. Owners who offer items pay a listing fee and a small commission.

Before you get started on Zilok, read through the FAQs. They explain the risks and benefits involved in using the site.

  1. There are actually a few sites like this one. Most, like zilok take a percentage of your rentals. examples are irent2u and a host of others.

    We run, which is totally free (as in "lunch" and "speech"). We set up the site to try encourage people to think about what they need to actually buy and what they could rent from others.


Thanks for understanding that we need to prevent the nasties.
