Ruckify: Modernizing The Age-Old Rental Industry

It’s safe to say that winter is fully upon us… and that driveway isn’t going to plow itself! You aren’t the first to rent that snowblower on Ruckify, and you certainly won’t be the last. In fact, the origin of paying someone in your community for the use of something, be it equipment, vehicles, RVs like those found on Ruckify RV, or party supplies dates back to the 1930s.

One of the first rentals reportedly took place in California during the Great Depression, which saw a devastating stock market crash and peak for global unemployment. It was during this time that Van Nuys vehicle salesman Sam Greenberg was offered $5 for a truck by a man who only needed it for the day. Times were tough and the product wasn’t selling, so Sam obliged. When all was said and done, his business was $5 richer, and he still had the truck!

The spark that lit the rental industry flame

From that point on, the phenomenon continued to grow, and arguably, helped a society combat its way through the economic catastrophe that was the Great Depression. Entrepreneurs were born. Industry trust was earned and financially bruised consumers could have access to the goods and services they required at a fraction of the retail cost.

As the decades rolled on, advancements in the industry continued to be born; national organizations were formed and businesses adapted to the rental demand.

Today you can plan a full vacation without owning a single item to be stored after. Experience more while traveling by renting an RV from Ruckify RV, where memories are made and experiences come to life, and stock it full of adventure equipment from Ruckify.
