Communication is vital when exchanging rental gear. ShareGrid members can use the rental message thread on ShareGrid to discuss and agree on a pickup location with the equipment owner. This method ensures both parties know the meeting details, promoting a smooth transaction.

Preferred Meeting Spots:

  • Owner's Location: Typically, renters meet at or near the owner’s location. This often provides convenience for the owner and facilitates easier equipment handling.

  • Public Places: If meeting at a personal residence is uncomfortable, consider public and well-populated areas such as cafes, shopping malls, or libraries. These places are safe and neutral grounds that can make both parties feel at ease.

Safety and Comfort: Your safety and comfort are paramount. Choosing a public place for the exchange can enhance security and provide a relaxed environment for both parties.

If you have any questions or need further guidance on setting up a meeting place, our support team can help. We aim to make your rental experience on ShareGrid as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible.
