Red’s Shed Launches Kickstarter Campaign To Bring Collaborative Consumption To Denver, CO

Campaign reaches 23% of goal funding within first 24 hours of launch

 
PRLog - Apr. 30, 2014 - DENVER -- Red’s Shed, a Denver based start-up company launched their first ever KickStarter project yesterday and have already reached 23% funding within the first 24 hours. This KickStarter project will help fund their iPhone application development to compliment their already robust website and online rental sharing community. The project features a very hilarious promotional video starring their founder, Patrick Hutchinson and several members of their team.

“We found that our beta testers wanted improved website functionality and really needed to upload items from their smartphone. So we began overhauling the website and went into development of our iPhone application.” said Patrick about the project.

The community is based around micro-targeted listings, only those users who are in close proximity of the rentee can see and rent that item. This means a user in Denver CO, will not be asked to rent their item to an out-of-state member. Red’s Shed has also introduced a groups functionality to the community; offering organizations such as schools, HOAs, churches and other groups the ability to act as circles, for their members to rent to one another. This function is extremely effective for users who do not want to share items outside of their trusted network. In return for their participation, the groups if set up, will receive 2% of the transaction fee back on transactions generated by their members. This is a great way to raise funds for nonprofits or charities and to promote great relationships within the groups.

Patrick Hutchinson initially came up with the idea for Red’s Shed, when he purchased his home. He wanted to do some remodeling and found that he was spending more time traveling to and from the home improvement store, than he was on the actual project. He also ended up purchasing many tools that only received minimal use; knowing his neighbors had these tools, but didn’t know an easy way to approach them.

Red’s Shed is an exciting new peer-to-peer rental community based out of Denver, CO. The community is location-based and utilizes groups to ensure easy member to member transactions in: commercial, residential, municipal and specialized service industry rentals. Red’s Shed connects people who need a tool, with those who have it available to rent. Red’s Shed is perfect for weekend do-it-yourselfers, hobbyists and people just like you working together to help our community.

Red’s Shed also provides a guarantee to make sure you get what you paid for. Our system keeps track of all our members items and will alert you when an item is ready to pick up or is due back.

Red’s Shed cares about the world we live in; Our community helps members reduce, re-use and increase recycling. By renting an already existing tool, members help decrease the need for new tool production, reducing the amount of waste put in landfills from excess packaging and the discarding of old tools.
