When I first created erento my vision was a website that let anyone anywhere rent anything over the internet. But to this day, I am still surprised by some of the unexpected items which appear.

erento, the world’s largest online rental marketplace, has announced its list of the ten most unusual items available to rent on its website this March. Representatives from the website believe that renting is becoming increasingly popular with people across Britain. According to erento founder Chris Möller, it is not just traditional rental products such as cars and motorhomes that customers are shopping for online - it appears that just about anything can be rented out for a day.
According to erento, the ten most unusual items available for rental on the site this March are: highland wear, a Scooby Doo custume, a F1 driving simulator, a fairground ride, a snow machine, a palm tree, a model ship, a Studio 54 lightbox, a big top tent and a portable toilet. The list was compiled by surveying the wide variety of products on erento’s website; these items are available to anyone in the UK, alongside more traditional rentals such as cars and tools.
Möller comments on the unique appeal of many of the items on the list: “Ever fancied being a Formula 1 racing driver? If so, the next best thing – an F1 Driving Simulator – can be ordered online. Organising an outdoor party or a big festival for the summer? Don’t forget the portable toilets! For a truly outrageous party, it is even possible to hire a Big Top tent, decorate it with palm trees, dress all the guests in Scooby Doo costumes and then shower them with fake snow. Meanwhile, anyone feeling that they really missed out on the legendary New York party scene of the 70s can try to recreate it in Hull, Prestwick, Nuneaton or any other UK town. Simply rent out the Studio 54 Light Box for authenticity and you’re well on your way to Big Apple-style excess.”
Möller states that the wide variety of items available on erento ensures that customers can find rental options, no matter what they are after. He concludes: “When I first created erento my vision was a website that let anyone anywhere rent anything over the internet. But to this day, I am still surprised by some of the unexpected items which appear. On our German site, erento.com, you can even hire a zeppelin.”
