Throughout history, independent artists and creatives have consistently come up against the same confounding hurdle: creativity requires equipment - but equipment costs money, and money is most often the one thing in short supply.
When your creative output is also your sole source of income, this problem starts to look worryingly paradoxical. And with access to funding more competitive than ever, for many it can feel like a real struggle just to get your foot in the door.
Introducing KitMapper – a new website dedicated to helping artists and creatives find easy, affordable access to AV equipment in their local area.
Like AirBnb and BlaBlaCar before it, KitMapper facilitates the peer-to-peer rental of kit and equipment amongst an online community of AV artists and creatives – providing cheaper rates for renters and extra income for owners.
Whether you need a camera for a shoot, a projector for a pop-up installation, or a turntable for a club event – KitMapper allows you to connect with users in your local area in order to rent equipment direct from the source.
In turn, the site helps owners to earn money back from their equipment, transforming unused kit into a new source of income. Users listing kit for rental enjoy the benefits of a legal rental agreement, a user review and verification process, and a simple system for checking items in and out.
Whether you want to rent equipment cheaply or earn money off the kit you own, head to www.kitmapper.com and sign up today!
