Docks For Rent – Time to Join the Sharing Economy

Docks For Rent

Docks for Rent is a new type of sharing service. Have you tried Uber, Lyft, or AirBnB? Bet your family and friends have. These and many other peer-to-peer “sharing” services have become very common by unlocking income from underutilized assets. Too many people have too many things that aren’t being fully used, so these social marketplaces create income, save costs, and foster social engagement. Sharing is caring!

The Sharing Economy

The sharing economy is projected to grow from $15 billion in 2014 to $335 billion in 2025. Here is why:

  • Gig Economy. People have realized that they can make a few extra dollars by using their spare time or renting out some assets that are being fully used. Don’t expect to make a career out of it, but millions of people have joined the “gig economy” making some extra money on a side hustle.
  • Save Money. The best part of peer-to-peer renting is the cost-savings. Uber rides are cheaper than a taxi or owning a car; AirBnB is cheaper than a hotel room, and you can save a lot of money by renting a dock through Docks4Rent as opposed to paying for a marina slip.
  • Go Green. Sustainability is a prime focus of the emerging sharing economy. Why create more and more “things” when there are already enough things that are not being used. It is a small step but sharing an item or service helps to reduce consumption and waste.

Why it’s Working

  • Social Benefits. This may sound corny but most people like social interaction. We aren’t likely to form a personal friendship with a hotel manager or the manager of a commercial marina, but the opposite is true for these sharing services where you are dealing directly with a person who has shared interests. You may be drawn to the Docks4Rent concept for saving or making some money, but boaters are a social community and it is very likely that our members will bond over their interest in boating.

Millennials are leading the way in this new economy. My kids used Uber and AirBnB long before I started to take this seriously, but the concept makes a lot of sense, and the growth cannot be denied. So give it a try and see for yourself.
