The World’s Online Rentalplace
Suppose you need something for a while. It could be some obscure computer equipment. A tool for household repair. Whatever. Buy it, use it, and sell it on eBay! Better yet, buy it on eBay, use it, and sell it back on eBay! Keep it as long as you want.
A friend of mine and I use eBay as a DVD rental service. We buy ’em. Watch ’em. Share ’em. And eventually sell them on eBay. We generally get most of what we paid for them.
It’s also a great place to upgrade your gear. Buy something better, and sell the old one on eBay.
