Utah-based Rental App Provides Opportunities During Pandemic

Users of Utah-based Yoodlize are finding creative ways to leverage the peer-to-peer online rental app during quarantine and are earning extra income from home

Online PR News – 22-May-2020 – PROVO, Utah – Users of Utah-based Yoodlize are finding creative ways to leverage the peer-to-peer rental app during these unprecedented times. Users of the app are joining the gig economy, and many are earning significant supplemental income by renting out items they own. Yoodlize users are also finding fun ways to distract themselves and try out new things while in social isolation.

“During this time of crisis, we have seen people using the Yoodlize app in unexpected ways, “ said Yoodlize founder, Jason Fairbourne, “For example, a recent user rented a camera to stream a memorial service so family and friends could participate while adhering to social-distancing guidelines.”

The Yoodlize customer was able to facilitate a remote memorial service that would not have been possible without access to the camera rented through the Yoodlize app. “Thank you so much!” the user said, “This is going to allow our entire family to feel involved.”

Another family rented a Virtual Reality (VR) headset to entertain their kids who were stuck at home. “It’s a great way to have fun new experiences, without having to buy expensive equipment that you won’t use very often,” said Fairbourne.

Some of the high volume renters on the platform are making over $500 per month, simply by renting out things they own to their neighbors. “That extra cash is really helping families right now who are struggling,” said Fairbourne, “That extra income stream will only become more important as finances tighten up over the coming months. We have definitely seen an influx of new users during the pandemic.”

Yoodlize was created to bring people together, to help them get more value out of their stuff in a shared economy. It’s become a useful platform to help people look out for their neighbors and strengthen their communities during a difficult time. Best of all, transactions and payments happen virtually on the app, helping us to do our part to keep apart but stay united.
