About Hire Things

Hi and Welcome to Hire Things

Hire Things is where people and businesses find things to hire... from local businessess, community groups and individuals

Hire Things is your online hiring and renting marketplace. It allows any business, group, or individual to list goods, places, and services they offer for hire, so you can easily find them and book them online. Listing is free, with a 5% commission on successful hire transactions, and we offer annual listing plans for small businesses.

At Hire Things we consider our approach to online hiring and renting to be not just a business to consumer (B2C) marketplace, for people to find and organise things they need for their events, projects, adventures or lifestyle, mostly from established and emerging small and medium hire and service businesses. We welcome and support ground roots peer to peer (P2P) hiring, encouraging local trading, and provide a simple turn-key hire-management system, a standard hire agreement for all hire transactions, plus consumer feedback & rating.

Hire Things operates the website in New Zealand, and in Australia, and is always open to partner with other businesses & websites to provide a better service and encourage hire and rental as a win-win and eco-friendly way to trade :-)

We are based in Wellington, New Zealand.
