10 Things You Can Hire Out to Make Some Extra Cash Quickly

According to The Telegraph, British research found that the average 10-year-old owns 238 toys but plays with 12 daily, making up just five percent of their toys. The chances are that you also own several items that you only use once or twice a year.

What is the point of holding on to something that you use only a few times a year when you can earn some extra cash by selling or, hiring it out? Want to earn extra money with the items you own?

Here are 10 items you can hire out to make some extra cash quickly.

1.Camping equipment

Do you own a tent you that you only use once a year? Camping gear costs a lot of money and takes a lot of space to store therefore not everyone wants to own one. Why not put yours up for hire while you are not using it? Depending on the size of your tent, you can make anywhere from £10 to £ 40 per day.

Perfect way to enjoy your summer, get a tent and BBQ for your next camping trip.

2.DIY Equipment

What about the wallpaper set or DIY tools you bought and never used it after the job was done? And the ladder, drill, wheelbarrow, toolset, gardening tools, leaf blower, mower, tile cutter, and the power washer, all of these are potential for extra income.

Most sheds have tons of DIY equipment lying around idle, only to be used once or twice a year.


Did you buy a projector for a special event or a presentation? A rather expansive item, but a handy one to own. Rent it out for extra income and let it pay for itself.

4.Outdoor Furniture

Weather permitting; your outdoor equipment can also be generating income for you while you are not using it. Deck chairs, outdoor umbrellas, furniture sets, hammocks, BBQ’s are all potential income generators.

5.Music equipment

If you haven’t been able to wake up the musician in you then why not lend your stuff to others. Pianos, Guitars, keyboards, karaoke machines, and the drum set.

Music equipment can be expansive, hiring a guitar and amplifier for your next practice session could be the way forward.

6.Photography equipment

Make money hiring out your digital camera, camera stands, lens, lights, and the Go Pros.
