Joined Vator on
Fun2Rent.com an online platform that connects owners of recreation and powersport vehicles (boats, jet skis, snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, trailers, and more) with individuals interested in renting these vehicles. Owners earn money on their idle assets and renters save up to 70% by renting from private owners.
The platform allows owners to earn supplemental income from their vehicles and provides renters a fully-insured, reasonably-priced alternative to online and local powersport rental companies. Our mission is to become the VRBO/Airbnb of the recreation and powersport rental market. The main difference is that both owners and renters have insurance.
Fun2Rent’s legal counsel is represented by Goodwin and Procter LLP.
