The price you charge to rent your items should factor in the cost of delivering and collecting the goods during each agreement. 2ndLease can help you determine what area you wish to service to ensure its economical, typically 10km-40km from your home. Note: For deliveries with stairs or items that require two or more people, an additional fee is charged to cover this cost for you.
To make it friendlier to the customer, we factor the delivery price into the monthly rental. This boosts sales by making it more affordable.
If the goods are between agreement, you can remove their listing at any time via the partner dashboard. If the goods are under agreement you will have to wait until the end of the lease for them to be returned.
All 2ndLease renters have different needs and therefore different rental periods. However, we have found the average rental period to be around 10-12 months.
You are required to continue servicing the customer whilst they are renting your item. If your customer's appliance breaks, you are expected to repair or replace their item.
One of my orders is about to end
While we can't guarantee the future condition of the item, the renter is responsible for any damage or loss to the goods, aside from normal wear and tear. 2ndLease screens all of their customers to ensure that we only lease your products to credible renters.
If the good breaks not at the fault of the renter, we will immediately notify you to receive a course of action. Our general rule of thumb is that the value of the item is equal to approximately twelve (12) month’s rent. However in some cases, an items worth may exceed this value. In this case compensation from the renter would be similar to the items cost value.
If you're appliances are are returned in a state that is significantly worse then when you delivered the product, we can organise to charge the customer for an extra cleaning fee.
As long as you have a method of storage and delivery, alongside the ability to repair or replace any of your items that stop working, you're more than welcome to become a partner. We strongly recommend that partners with small inventories have backup products or are experienced in repairing.
As a partner it is your responsibility have both the goods delivered to the renter and returned to your address upon the renter's request for return.
