“We look forward to offering greater search options and providing more precise search results for RentStuff’s users,” says Darryl Aken, President/CEO of RentalCompare in Los Angeles.
From Chris Jaeger, President/CEO of RentStuff in Chicago, IL: “RentalCompare has a huge inventory listing base which enhances the category search we have developed. They are a natural purchaser.”
The combined RentalCompare and RentStuff event/equipment marketplaces throughout North America and major international cities make it possible for event/equipment professionals and individuals to keyword search rentals (e.g., “white tent” or “large sofa” or “power washer”) and view actual rental products available. For example, a search for “chairs” in Los Angeles would return over 1,000 different chair models from over 50 different rental companies.
The site, rentalcompare.com, has been live for over two years and is a resource for wedding, event and party planners, in addition to general contractors. Individual renters are also discovering the efficiency of the site.
RentalCompare connects renters with rental companies: it is the web’s largest event and equipment marketplace listing over 500,000 different rentals from over 1,000 rental companies. RentalCompare creates an individual listing for each rental product or service in a rental company’s inventory, each of which is tagged and keyword searchable.
RentStuff focuses on searching rentals by category in the event and equipment market. With the combined size of both sites, searching for items just became easier, broader and more precise.
