All of us here are pretty proud of a little website we launched recently that has already been getting some good press. Traction is something every website launch looks for and myhire.ie is certainly getting that. The first of these news articles follows……… so read on for the official bit! :)
Check out the orginal article: New website set to transform hire market
A new website that aims to connect people looking for goods and services and those looking to rent out goods and services has been launched in Ireland. MyHire.ie is a tool whereby people looking to rent items on a short-term basis can browse online catalogues and those with goods that they are not currently using can upload them for rent.
Those with services to offer and those looking for service providers may use the site on the same basis. Managing Director David O’Leary says: “We are very excited with the launch of the website and feel that it targets a niche in the market not currently served. The list of hiring possibilities is endless and as the site includes both products and services so it really is open to all.”
“During a time when we are constantly reminded to squeeze our belts beyond breathing point, this innovative website offers a simple solution to making what may be just beyond our reach, somewhat more affordable, if only for a short period of time.”
In real terms, Mr O’Leary explains how the site operates. “Tom owns a trailer which he uses occasionally,” he says. “Joe needs a trailer occasionally but doesn’t want to buy one, Tom and Joe meet up and the trailer is rented for an affordable price and both Tom and Joe are happy. Tom still owns his trailer and Joe didn’t need to buy one – the same principal can be applied to any other product from a power hose, ladder and a wheelbarrow to a camper van, roof box or even a bicycle, anything really. And it doesn’t stop there – maybe you’re a ‘Man with a Van’ – why not rent it out when you don’t need it because you can be sure that there is someone out there who does.
“And it’s not just about products – the service industry is more than catered for, as the website aims to offer a full comprehensive nationwide listing of both products and services, including professional, trade or casual. You would be amazed at the number of people looking for a local dressmaker, cake designer, florist, children’s entertainer or even a handyman, not to mention a tiler, carpet cleaner or plumber and that’s just for starters.
Having everything listed in one central location simplifies life for everyone and is the only place you will need to look when organising anything from a christening to a wedding, or a major spring clean to a complete garden overhaul – and everything in between. So if you have a product or service to offer, list it on MyHire.ie and let the people find you.”
MyHire.ie is currently offering a three-month listing for free, running for a limited time. For more information see www.myhire.ie.
