Fighting Recession on the web: Rent anything online

London, January 27th, 2009 – 1.92 Million unemployed, one home repossessed every 10 minutes... Recession is here, and we can’t deny it. What we can do is find ways to get through it. Time to make use of everything you own: time to rent!

On Zilok.co.uk, you can rent anything and everything to or from anyone around you.

Zilok.co.uk is an online community platform that allows you to make money renting things you own to people near you. DIY tools, sewing machines, cameras, electronic devices, sports equipment, lawn mowers, game consoles, DVDs, furniture, handbags, clothes, costumes, projectors, strollers, books, vacation rentals… you can rent it all online. By the same token, you can save money renting anything from people near you; DIY tools to work on the house, a bicycle for your son who’s outgrown his, a fancy handbag for a special evening...

For those who aren’t very creative, or are anxious to find out how much money they could earn on Zilok to fight recession in the household, there is an online simulation tool. The rental income simulator takes you on a virtual tour of your house, you tick the objects you own, and it calculates your expected earnings per month if you were to rent them on zilok.co.uk.

A fast growing marketplace

Members are bringing new people to Zilok every day, widening the community and increasing both the demand for your rental items and the supply of things to rent for your needs. Beth from Reading agrees: “ I made £30 renting my lawn mower and my fancy handbag on Zilok last month. I'm definitely going to start posting more stuff on my profile!”. And so does Adam from Leeds: “ I wanted to take photos at my sister’s wedding, so I went looking on Zilok and I found the perfect small camera a couple of miles from my house for just £10! I can’t afford to buy much these days, so I’m glad I can rent things on Zilok when I need them.
