While it is a small percentage of the population that plays the harp, interestingly it is the #10 most popular instrument in the United States. It is not surprising that it falls behind the piano, guitar, violin, and drums, but it is still a beloved instrument by many.
Whether you are just starting the process of learning the harp or are an accomplished harpist who needs a concert grand pedal harp, renting one is a great way to be able to use one without having the make a huge investment. Purchasing one can easily cost thousands on dollars, if not tens of thousands. Renting one on the other hand will save you majorly costing $30 to $150 a month.
If you are one of the few individuals who owns a harp, and you no longer play it on a regular basis, why not lend it out to someone else who has the desire to learn how to play it. Not only is it not taking up space in your house, but it also allows you to meet someone else interested in the same thing you are. It allows you to share the joy that you have while playing the beautiful instrument. That is one of our purposes at My Garage Rentals. We want to help build this community.

We all have those times where we wish we could haul just a little bit more. Whether we are moving, making a big purchase, doing some major yard work, or renting a large piece of equipment there are always those times that come up where a utility trailer would come in handy to save time and effort. It can save you from having to make several trips. Or it can allow you to fit something that you previously could not.
But a utility trailer takes up a lot of space. So if you are not going to use it often who really wants to keep it in their driveway or on the side of their house. If you live in an apartment or condo then there is no way you could store it there. Even if you were to need it on a regular basis you would have to pay to store it somewhere else.
So for those of you who have a utility trailer sitting around try putting it up on MyGarageRentals.com. We would suggest for you to think about what size cars, trucks, and SUVs would be able to use your trailer. There is a good chance the person renting it had never thought of this and they will be grateful that you did. They wouldn’t be very happy if they got down the road and they couldn’t tow it because the weight was just too much.Read More
Maybe we at My Garage Rentals are going a little bit over the top with the bounce house idea, but we are getting excited about the possibilities! Picture this:
You want to have a simple side business you can work on Saturdays and Sundays in order to make an extra few hundred bucks on the weekends. So you spend $2,500 to purchase one or two bounce houses. (The price would depend on the size, shape, and if it is themed after a movie or something popular) You set aside a little space on a shelf in your garage to store them during the week. You set them up for your kids birthday party or just so your kids can bring over some friends and play and they love it. During the party you take pictures. That night you posts those pictures on My Garage Rentals.
We do the advertising for you. Other people in the nearby area see that you have a bounce house for rent. They rent it from you on the weekends. You go and set it up in the morning and take it down in the afternoon or evening at one or two locations. You are now making a few hundred extra bucks each weekend. The bounce houses pay themselves off and now you are making the money.
Simple as that. Small investment and you get money in your pocket.Read More
A person can take an item that would normally be a liability and turn it into an asset. An item that would normally not do anything but cost a person money can now be turned into an asset, bringing money in to the owners pocket.Read More
Last week was a major freeze that went through a good portion of the country. Negative double digits for much of the Northeast part of the country. But for many of you who do not live in that part of the country wasn’t nearly that bad. And in fact the weather may be very nice. The snowbirds in Arizona were enjoying temperatures in the 70’s. They were out playing golf while much of the country was hunkering down hoping their heat doesn’t go out.
Speaking of golf… We heard the other day that much of a golf courses revenue comes from their golf carts. And if you think about it, it is true that when you go golfing you spend a lot of extra money on that cart so you don’t end up having to walk the whole course. You could easily spend an extra $15 to $50 just to borrow a tiny car to take you from one hole to the next. At the end of the game, you give it back and get in your normal sized car to drive home. On the higher end of the rental spectrum isn’t too far from what it would cost to rent a car for an entire day! And you are using it in a controlled area for a few hours!
Now we are not suggesting that everyone should go out and buy a golf cart. Even if you go golfing on a regular basis. That is not what My Garage Rentals does. Golf carts would take up a ton of space and would not be easy to transport to the course. But for people who live around golf courses, this may be an idea! Not for yourself, but for others. (And you could use it on occasion when you want to, too.) This is what My Garage Rentals does. We want you, who already have one, to rent it to others!
Think about it. If you own one (or two) you could get an extra hundred bucks a day from it. This would obviously depend on where you live and what course is around you. This would be from something you may already own. All you have to do is give someone the keys and let them use it for a few hours. Golf courses are a fairly subdued area for driving. There isn’t too much traffic. It is not like they are out driving on the city streets or the highway.
For those of you who enjoy the game of golf, but you are on a budget, every penny counts. This would afford you the opportunity to save $10, $20, or maybe even $30 on a single game. That adds up quick if you enjoy the game and play on a regular basis.
Give it a try! Let us know how it works! We want to hear.Read More
