What we do
Fueled by adventure
We’re on a mission to simplify the rental gear discovery and booking process. To make this happen, we partner with the best rental retailers around, equipping them with the management tools they need to grow and thrive, while providing gear-seekers with a convenient, consolidated view of bookable online gear rentals.
With purpose-built features like inventory management, real-time booking calendars and detailed reporting, Gearo is so much more than a marketing tool, but yeah, we provide marketing solutions for our shops, too! Every transaction generated through Gearo helps keep our local retailers thriving. Shop Gearo and Support Local.
Real-time calendars and inventory functionality so you know exactly where your gear is at every moment of the day.
Support tickets, coupons and a database so you can keep track of your customers in one place, keeping them engaged.
Reporting & Analytics
Analyze product performance to optimize future buying decisions and understand booking patterns down to the day.
Reach new customers, automate bookings, and increase revenue with the Gearo Marketplace, an aggregated view of rental gear.
Who we are
“a mutually beneficial community of retailers and adventure-seekers.”
Gearo was spun out of the realization that gear accessibility needed to be improved. Justine and Andrew started the first model of Gearo after they attempted to rent snowshoes, contemplated buying them and then ultimately did neither.
The second iteration came after they attempted to rent a paddleboard. They googled paddleboard rental in Denver and had dozens of options to choose from. They started calling each one asking for pricing, availability and product details and were so frustrated by the time they were spending doing this, they ultimately gave up on the rental. That’s when they realized the outdoor gear industry hadn’t transitioned to the 21st century.
After only a few conversations with retailers, it became all-to-apparent that there was no platform to adequately manage rental transactions and that small local rental shops desired increased exposure, without spending thousands on advertising. Through all of these events, Gearo was born – a mutually beneficial community of retailers and adventure-seekers.
