Yija rented from Grover, a tech rental site. There are also other sites like Lumoid, which allows you to rent gadgets from iPad to camera kits. The rental fee starts at $30 depending on the length of rent. To secure their gadgets, these sites have damage waiver fees.
To sign up, you just need to put in your information and pay a refundable deposit in case the items were trashed.
After using the gadgets, the deposit will be immediately refunded after they were shipped back without damages.
Some sites also offer rent to own options.
According to a tech expert, these sites are really helpful for those who are a bit tight on cash or afraid to spend money on gadgets they haven’t tried yet.
These sites are indeed safe and easy to use. However, consumers should always read the policies and make sure that the fees are reasonable.
It’s also important to wipe away all your personal info or images after using the gadgets.
