Whimiy.com – What Is Mine Is Yours – Launches as the First Nationwide Neighbor-to-Neighbor Online Rental Community

August 31, 2018

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 31, 2018--Whimiy.com is the latest social sharing platform, following in the footsteps of Uber and Airbnb. From tools and camping equipment to baby products and musical equipment, neighbors can now rent items to and from each other.

“So many people have products that they don’t often use and yet don’t want to sell,” says Rhonda Harper, Whimiy Founder & CEO. “And, often people want an item for only a short period of time so it doesn’t make sense to purchase. The sharing economy is here to stay and Whimiy is the first one for items in your household, garage, and storage unit.”

“With Whimiy, your clutter becomes your inventory. Your storage unit becomes your warehouse!” Harper says with a smile. “Ironically, as the former Chief Marketing Officer of Sam’s Club, I used to promote buying in bulk. Now, I encourage you not to buy at all!”

Reducing waste and protecting our environment is a benefit of Whimiy. Continues Harper, “Not only does renting reduce consumer waste, Whimiy donates 5% of net proceeds to non-profits that help to protect our environment.”

Becoming a Whimiy member is free and always will be. Owners decide how much to charge, the duration of the rental period, and any additional terms and conditions. When a member rents an item, Whimiy simply collects a small 10% commission on the rental transaction.
