Facts About Our Trusted Partners
Babierge is a platform connecting gig-economy baby gear rental entrepreneurs, called Trusted Partners,with families traveling to their area, or local grandparents hosting visiting grandchildren. Trusted Partners rent, deliver and set up baby gear they own at a family’s hotel or vacation rental, and then return to pick it up on departure day.
An Army of (Mom) Entrepreneurs
Trusted Partners are often moms with young children (although some are dads and retired folks), seeking a side gig that is enjoyable and meaningful. In about two weeks they move through the Babierge application and training process to launch their own business on the Babierge platform. Trusted Partners select the gear they want to rent and set their own prices and delivery fees. Babierge trains them in all aspects of the baby gear business including gear safety and cleanliness, hospitality industry customer service, sales and marketing.
- Paid when a reservation is made. This means new Trusted Partners can list gear on the Babierge platform, but purchase it only after getting paid for an order.
- Receive 80% of their platform rental revenue and 100% of their delivery fees and tips.
- Pay for commercial general liability insurance.
- On average earn $600/month plus tips, second only to Airbnb hosts for gig economy income. Some earn several thousand. Estimated hourly rate of over $40 is one of the best rates in the gig economy.
