ShedStreet.com is Now Avaliable Nationwide
Since the launch of the community sharing site in Austin, Texas, people from across the nation have been asking to have their location added and now their wish has been granted.
AUSTIN, Texas - Feb. 26, 2014 - PRLog -- ShedStreet.com, a community based site that provides a platform for members to lend and borrow items from each other, has enhanced its site to now allow members to “create” their own neighborhood. ShedStreet has become distance based. Members determine how far they want to travel to pick up an item and conversely members can determine how far they want their items to travel.
“Members have been asking for us to tear down the walls and we have done that,” said Eric Hiduke of ShedStreet.
“There has been a lot of activity over the past several months on the site and this enhancement allows more people to participate in the sharing economy,” said Michael Heldebrandt of ShedStreet.
“We know Kayaks and Power Washers are the most popular items in Texas but it will be very interesting to see what items are most popular in different areas of the country,” Michael added.
The Share Economy is an economic model based on sharing under-utilized assets including items or skills for monetary benefits.
For example, if you have gone out and bought a kayak and it sits in your storage for 99% of the year then you have an under-utilized asset. Conversely, if you don’t have a kayak but have an urge to take up kayaking, your choices are: go to the local sporting goods store and buy one or go to the only rental shop in town that is located 20 miles away.
Now, with share sites like ShedStreet.com, you can find neighbors that have a kayak that they are willing to rent to you. Try it out and then decide if it is for you or not. Or best, only rent it when you feel the need to get down to the lake. This model works well for tools (a ladder to change a light bulb), party supplies (tables and chairs, a bouncy house or a large outdoor screen), and sports equipment.
