Follow these steps to list your outdoor gear for rent on GeerGarage:

  1. Create an account with us if you haven't already.

  2. Click on List gear in the navigation bar while logged in or click on Your Garage > Your listed gear.

  3. The next page shows a list of all the gear that you currently have listed for rent. Click the Add more gear button at the top of this page.

  4. From here, add all the types of gear that you would like to lend on GeerGarage, similar to how you might add gear to your cart when checking out from an eCommerce website. We recommend that you add as many items as possible. The more items that you list for rent, the more likely that you are to receive invitations to lend from us. Got 5 sleeping bags? Please list them all!

  5. Finally, confirm that the items are in good condition to finish listing your gear. This is in place to ensure that renters are satisfied with the gear they receive from you and that it's safe for them to use.

Additional things to keep in mind when listing your gear for rent:

We'll need more info from you

You will need to provide more information about the items prior to lending them for the first time. This includes a picture of the item and a description. You'll still receive invitations to lend without providing that information, however.

List more gear to get more invitations to lend

If you list more gear, you will get more invitations to lend. This is because lender who can lend more items in a given rental rank more highly than those who can only lend a subset of the items. We contact multiple lenders to fulfill a given order and prefer lenders who can successfully fulfill every item requested by the renter.


By following these simple steps, you can start listing your outdoor gear for rent on GeerGarage today. With the ability to make money from gear you're not using, and the satisfaction of helping others get outside and explore, there's no reason not to get started right away.
