20 Exceptional Rental Websites to Inspire Entrepreneurs

With Booqable, over two thousand rental businesses from various industries accept bookings and payments on their website. We’re proud of what people have achieved with their Booqable stores that we wanted to share some with you to inspire your journey to creating an online rental store. The businesses in these examples successfully supply locals with party equipment, tourists with bikes, creatives with camera gear, event planners with decor, and so much more.

Note: While building a website for your rental business may sound challenging, website builders make it easy and affordable.

3. Evidence Cameras


Los Angeles, California-based Evidence Cameras has designed a website that is easy to navigate and illustrates how simple the process can be. By showing a curated gallery of logos from the equipment brands they stock, customers immediately recognize they’re in the right place. We also love the inclusion of some of their big-name clients within the film industry.

4. Falsett


Falsett has one of the most minimal and accessible camera rental websites we have seen. It’s broken down into categories, contact information, and their Instagram feed. This minimalist approach helps them create a great aesthetic and a no-nonsense service for their customers. As a result, it’s super easy to find what you’re looking for without too much information disturbing your experience.

They offer Surrey Bikes which have multiple seats to allow families to enjoy their bike trails together.

8. FOMO Rentals


FOMO Rentals founders Jamie and Sam give their customers access to the latest, top-of-the-line camera equipment at affordable prices. As an independent camera, lighting, and audio equipment rental company based in London, they’re on a mission to the one-stop shop for London’s creative industry. They’re constantly adding new inventory from manufacturers such as Arri, Canon, Red, Sony, Blackmagic, and many more to stay on top of the game.

9. Girona Cycle Centre


Girona Cycle Centre’s website has a feeling similar to what you might expect to find on your typical e-commerce website. This helps the experience to feel just like it would if you were shopping on any other website, which we’re sure their customers love. Meanwhile, their implementation of Booqable within their website means customers can select dates, see real-time availability, variations, and related products cleanly and efficiently.

10. Stefanie Cole Photogrpahy

Cloth and Confetti is an Australian events rental business that focuses on catering to weddings. Their website embodies this perfectly with a design that looks like a wedding magazine that has been brought to life online. It feels exactly how you expect a professional event rental business to feel and certainly creates excitement for your event from the moment you first open it.

Once you click through to the hire page, you’re greeted with nicely organized categories complemented by elegant photography.

15. Emerson James


They don’t get much more sleek and elegant than Emerson James’ when it comes to wedding rental websites.

Their stunning photography sells their products and is a great case study for why imagery matters so much on your rental website.
