Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 16, 2009
Individuals and small businesses now have a free resource to find services, grow customers and earn more money thanks to a new online startup. Renterval, a combination of the words "rental" and "interval", is a services brokerage business that helps those with items to rent or services to sell a marketplace where they can open a virtual storefront and begin operating - all at no cost.
Through Renterval (http://www.Renterval.com), individuals and small businesses trying to reach local customers can benefit from having a virtual storefront, complete with online advertising and payment collection. Renterval.com facilitates any transaction that can be priced by an interval of time (hour, day, or week) by offering free tools, including classified ads, an appointment scheduler, merchant maps, and a merchant rating system. Customers use Renterval.com to find local services or rentals, schedule an appointment and pay for services.
Anyone with equipment to rent or services to sell can generate extra income by simply posting an ad describing their offering, setting the price per interval (the time period they're willing to sell), and indicating when the item or service is available. When a customer rents an item or service by providing a valid credit card, Renterval notifies the merchant via an email and, if desired, a text message and connects the customer and merchant to complete the transaction.
Customers visiting the site in search of goods or services enter a description of what they're looking for, how far they are willing to search for services, and the ZIP code in which they live. Renterval returns listings that meet the criteria provided by the customer. Customers can view the merchant's ad, view the merchant's calendar and satisfaction rating. Customers can even correspond with the merchant if they have questions about the offering prior to purchase.
The promise of Renterval is that anyone from individuals to small- and medium-sized businesses can join the community and start putting their items to work for them. In a service business, an unsold hour of work is lost forever. Renterval will help sell those hours and prevent a total loss of the opportunity.
Founded in Dallas, Texas in 2008, Renterval is an online market that facilitates the rental of items or services primarily sold by an interval of time.
