    Pros: 

    Nices ideas - from somewhere else

    Cons: 

    It's a clone of an existing startup

    Competition is great and I welcome it. Shameless copying of another's one IP is a different matter altogether. From the term "universal sharing network" to the use of jetskis as examples of 'big toys', you copied verbatim our startup Slock.it (http://www.slock.it), on which we worked so hard for the last 2 years.

    I'm not a fan of patents and we made the decision to be good to the community and placing a lot of our hard work as open-source, but companies like yours makes patenting a must have. Shame on you.

    Pros: 

    I can rent anything and everything!

    Cons: 

    Needs more people useing their service!

    Baro has the potential to be the only app needed to rent anything in planet earth.

Hello, I'm Myles with Baro. The team and I started to realize that the world needs a reliable, mobile marketplace for neighbors and peers to share their items with each other. People all over the world are in need of things they may not necessarily want to purchase. Other people all over the world own items they aren't always using. Why not connect the two? With the sharing economy growing day by day, there's no question - Baro is the most secure, easy, and reliable way to share with your peers. Right now, Baro is only available in Florida but we would appreciate your feedback and suggestions. If you have any question or concerns - contact us @ support@barostuff.com

@barostuff @visnsofbillions Big fan of the idea - it looks like you guys have all the basis covered, even insurance for broken items. Is there a limit on what one could rent from a neighbor? On instagram it looks like you could rent someone's car, that seems like a big liability. All that is 100% insured by Baro?

@barostuff @visnsofbillions @kevinguebert Hey Kevin, thanks for the feedback! In terms of what can be rented, the only limits are dangerous items. So no guns, chemicals, etc. Everything else is fair game! We cover insurance up to $5,000 for all items, including vehicles. As we progress, in the future we'll add special insurance policies just for cars.

Any specific types of things you’re focused on? Or geographies you’re targeting?

@drewmeyers Hey Drew, good questions. We're not focused on any particular items - Baro is more of a rent-all app. We're currently launching in Florida, and hoping to expand soon!

Congrats on the launch 🎉🎉You guys are solving a real problem for people. With the rise of the sharing economy with Uber and Airbnb, it makes more sense to borrow items than buying new, can't wait to try this out!

@garytokman Gary, thanks for the comment. We certainly hope our app will help make people's lives better, allowing cash savings and earnings all in one. We can't wait for you to try it as well!
