With the onset of winter, many Austin families will be making treks north to enjoy the slopes or will be using vacation time to make improvements around the house. Unfortunately these activities can become quite expensive. Big adventures tend to be a big investment, but they don’t have to be anymore — that’s where ShedStreet comes in.
ShedStreet.com is a local resource designed to simply let neighbors share their stuff. Need skis for your family skiing trip? Rent them from your neighbors down the street. Have an outdoor heater you’re not using this weekend? Lend it to the new family on the block. With ShedStreet, you can borrow all the equipment you need for your next project or activity, and make some money off the extra stuff collecting dust in your garage by sharing it with your community.
The website was started by two 40-something Steiner Ranch residents, Eric and Michael, who saw a great opportunity to share with each other. They launched ShedStreet a few months ago in Steiner and have now expanded throughout the Austin area.
ShedStreet is completely FREE to become a member, and free to post any items or services you would like to rent out. ShedStreet serves Austin and surrounding communities, including Round Rock, Cedar Park, Pflugerville, and Lakeway. Just pick your neighborhood and start browsing! You can also like ShedStreet on Facebook to see the latest updates and new stuff for rent.
With vacation days fast approaching, now is the perfect time to become a part of the sharing community. Hop on over to ShedStreet.com to learn all about how the process works and to become a member. Next time you need tools, skis, or a giant movie screen — remember to check the street!
