Say you’re planning a camping trip but don’t want to buy a tent. You can now borrow one for a small fee by visiting TapGoods. The new website, founded by Preston Hollow resident Doug Levy, allows users to rent a plethora of items by the day, week or month.
Browse the database for party supplies, power tools, bicycles, musical instruments and more. Once you find something you’d like to rent, chat with the object’s owner to arrange a pick up time and location. If meeting a total stranger in a parking lot freaks you out, use the company’s delivery service for $13.50.
Levy says he created TapGoods to “help people put under-utilized things … to better use.” With companies like Uber, Lyft and Airbnb popping up everyday, it seems he’s right on trend.
Have an item you’d like to list? Snap a photo, write a description, and post it on the site. You’ll keep 80% of the rental price. Click here to learn more about this neighborhood business.
