The solution to uncertainty

With the national lockdown being extended at least until the 30th of April 2020 and the phased re-opening of the economy currently underway, the list of essential items and services is expanding – much to the relief of many South Africans who are having to acclimatise to the new normal. To help make this adjustment easier, Rentoza - Africa's first on-demand rental platform -  is giving South Africans access to the essentials they need, but without the commitment and enormous cash outlay of buying – a comfort in these uncertain times.

Rentoza has teamed up with retailers of electronics, appliances and baby goods to give South Africans  access to this online marketplace. The company also works with a dedicated logistics and distribution team to get  products to consumers across the country. Best of all, every item rented through Rentoza is insured at replacement value by Old Mutual Insure just in case something breaks or goes missing.

“No one knows when the virus will be contained, nor when normality will be restored. The solution, then, is renting. Now, people can  say bye to buying and hello to renting what they need for as long as they need, enabling them to live life on their terms,” says Rentoza Co-Founder, Mishaan Ratan.

Here are some of the ways Rentoza can help consumers during the lockdown period and beyond:

New baby, no problem:  Buying buggies, cots, car seats and baby baths can be quite costly especially since they are used for a relatively short time, so why not rent these items rather? Baby equipment from Rentoza starts at as little as R3.49 per day and can be returned once your little one no longer needs them.

Education on track: With pupils across South Africa having to enrol in virtual schools for the foreseeable future, it is crucial that they are equipped to continue their education. Parents won’t need to break the bank with tablets starting at R8.25 per day.

Stay in touch:  Lockdown needn’t be lonely with smartphones starting at  R14.99  per day. Whether you prefer Samsung, Huawei, Nokia, LG or Apple, there’s a phone to suit every preference and pocket.

Right tools for remote work: It is predicted that the trend of working from home will continue long after the pandemic is defeated. Purchasing a new laptop costs thousands of Rands that many of us aren’t able to afford at the moment, which is why renting makes more sense. Rentoza’s range of laptops start at R20.

In line with the lockdown regulations, Rentoza can only rent out baby equipment and a limited collection of electronics, however post-lockdown the platform will be able to offer items like chest freezers,  vacuum cleaners, gaming consoles, sound bars, 3D printers, Dyson hair dryers and more.
