The Big Picture
Start your own baby gear rental business today: work from home, earn extra income, join the collaborative economy, and bring joy to traveling families while serving a rapidly growing market.
As a Babierge Independent Trusted Partner you will delight traveling families by delivering clean, quality baby gear.
How We Help
We help you launch and market your business, drive sales to you through the Babierge platform and mentor you as an entrepreneur.
How Successful Can You Be?
To be honest, we aren’t sure how big this will get, but our goal is to build the leading baby gear rental marketplace in the world. We’re really optimistic! So far we’re seeing high demand for Babierge in all our current markets. Really high in some markets!
Families want a more at-home like experience when they travel. That’s why Airbnb and Vrbo are so popular for vacation rentals. At the same time, airlines are charging big fees for checking baggage. Parents and grandparents rent gear at their vacation destination because it saves money, removes the hassle of trudging bulky gear through an airport, and helps them enjoy every minute of their family vacation. It’s all about the lasting happy memories.
Our Business Model
We believe the collaborative economy is the future. No Trusted Partner gets exclusive rights to a market at Babierge (because we’re not a franchise). We’re building something unique—thriving communities of local entrepreneurs—and it’s working. Trusted Partners in the same market may share ideas, or even cover for each other on vacations or emergencies. We can dedicate more marketing resources to busy markets. Growth in a market can be good for everyone.
Babierge Trusted Partners Are
- Friendly: We’re building a trusted, family brand. We believe in going the extra mile for our customers, always with a smile. You should, too.
- Autonomous: We’ll guide you through your launch, but you’ll select your own gear, set your rental and delivery prices and design your marketing strategy.
- Professional: You’ll need to be organized, focused, positive, reliable, and punctual. We always show up on time.
- Connected: Ideally, you post regularly on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. And you already know which mommy, parenting, and neighborhood groups you want to reach out to-grandparent groups too!
- Flexible: Babierge is a startup. We hit both bumps in the road and wildly positive surprises. You will, too. We learn and adjust. It’s fun, exhilarating, and sometimes a bit unpredictable—generally in a good way.
- Entrepreneurial: You embrace the Gig Economy, know how to hustle up a business lead, network, and sell.
