No need to get troubled or run from one shop to another the next time you, as a college student, want a musical instrument, sports equipment or even furniture. You can get all this and more on rent, courtesy an initiative of PustakKosh.
A start-up working in the areas of innovative student rental solution which has already been a market leader in textbook rentals, PustakKosh is a one-stop student rental solution plan to address the student cost concerns and bad quality used market issues faced by them. It is also an opportunity for students to maximise returns and save money thus aligned with the actual usage. The idea is to address the short term needs of students in college life.
A student can now conveniently rent or sell books or items required via the portal, android app, customer care or whatsapp helpline (9136437970, 9911372785). On the portal, students can search the books or items they need on the search box and choose the rental period and order. At the end of the rental period, a pickup can be scheduled when the refundable security is returned and rent deducted. If the student decides to keep the book or change the rental period, the option is available too.
Similarly, if a student is interested in selling certain items or books, a request can be placed on portal where details can be filled. If the student has large number of books or other items they can register as a seller on the platform. Once the account is approved, the students can place the items for fulfilment via PustakKosh and get paid.
“A student’s needs range from sports equipment like cricket bats, badminton rackets or musical instruments like hobby guitars or even furniture for a temporary phase. Based on actual requests and similar experience with textbook rentals, we thought to step up to fulfill this requirement by giving a holistic cheaper option for the most student needs on a rental basis,” shares Shachindra, co-founder of PustakKosh.
He further adds that the student’s rental is a new concept that not only provides comfort and convenience but will also help save time and money to the student community at large. Moreover, students are always cash-starved and looking for innovative solution to save money. Based out of Noida, PustakKosh Rentals is one of the first student focussed one-stop rental platforms.
