All event planners understand the absolute struggle of finding the exact rental that fits a client's needs. Whether it be tables, chairs, linens, or tents, it always seems to be a hassle to find the appropriate rental. Co-founders Erik and Andrew are making that experience easier for you. They have created Goodshuffle, an event rentals marketplace that allows you to rent out event supplies without the hassle.
We asked them to share some insight on their newly booming company. Below they have shared where they are heading and how you can get involved:
1. What is Goodshuffle?
Goodshuffle is modernizing the event rentals industry. Our online marketplace allows renters to shop thousands of items from various local vendors (DMV), compare prices, and easily book directly through our site.
2. What inspired you to create your company?
Goodshuffle started as a neighbor-to-neighbor rental marketplace, but we quickly realized there was an industry doing a fantastic job of providing quality party rentals, but who lacked a centralized hub to help market their businesses and easily transact with consumers. Once we started focusing on event rentals, we were further inspired to create additional tools to make the process easier for the vendors and the renters alike.
3. How is Goodshuffle different from what's out there?
We're really aiming to bring vendors and renters closer together. We don't block the vendors' information, but rather encourage and enable communication between both parties. Our goal is just to make the whole process simpler by empowering vendors and renters through great technology.
4. Why should event planners care?
Event planners love the immediacy and simplicity of our website. They can instantly check a price, build carts for multiple different events at one time, and work with all their favorite vendors all from one portal. We're also a great source of inspiration due to our wide variety of items and our custom-built collections. Finally, we're always adding tools to help with planning. Our tent calculator and linen guide are useful for even the most experienced planner to confirm exactly what they need for each event.
6. What's next?
Our SaaS (software as a service) platform is set to launch next month. Vendors will be able to create quotes, manage inventory, and streamline all communication through one central hub. A subscription will greatly reduce issues with double bookings, shrinkage, and other common headaches in an industry that's really volatile in nature. Companies will save an incredible amount of time and money by reducing the time spent on pushing paper, answering questions for unqualified leads, and other basic operations that our technology can handle.
6. How can someone work with or contact you?
Anyone can create a free account on our site and start creating cart(s) for their next event(s) immediately. As for contacting us, you can use the live chat feature on our site or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments, or a friendly "hello"!
