However, we are not saying you have to rent all the toys you have for your child, we are saying that children lose interest in a lot of things in a short period of time. To cater to their constant change, rent out baby toys until they get bored with it. Once they get bored of it, you can rent other toys as well to keep them entertained. This would make your kid the happiest kid alive. It would not burn through a hole in your wallet when the time comes to bring in a new toy.

Make full use of the rented equipment! The sole purpose of renting out equipment is to save cost. If you rent out a piece of equipment for a couple of days but not use it then it would be a complete waste of money! Plan your rental periods according and ensure you are making full use of the amount you have paid. At RentSmart Asia, we want to ensure that you are fully satisfied with the product.

Another reason why renting products and equipment is more common now is people want that additional income. When Grab and Uber first came into Malaysia, people were doing Grab part time after they were done with their full time job because they wanted to earn that additional income. Having 2 sources of income is extremely beneficial because it would enable you to have financial flexibility. Having financial flexibility would give you the opportunity to invest the additional money made.


Renting out things that you do not use would give you that additional income and it would also remove the clutter around your house caused by

having too many things. Removing the clutter from your home would make it more welcoming to guests that enter your house. It would create additional space to rearrange your furniture, get new furniture, or just make your home look more spacious.
