SabRentKaro – rent anything and everything4 years ago Shalini B
Since ages, renting has always been a popular solution for every need that is temporary. Renting things is one of the easiest options available for humans, as renting allows them to fulfil their short term needs and requirements.
SabRentKaro is one such amazing Hyderabad based startup that provides a convenient solution to people to rent anything and everything on the go. Sprouted up from an act of his son borrowing video games instead of buying them, the idea took shape into a full-fledged e-commerce rental platform. Today, we dwell in post-industrial era where just a revolutionary idea can transform the world. Such is the idea of SabRentKaro.com, a pan India e-commerce rental portal. “From a bunch of friends contemplating and planning to a corporate office in prime location of Hyderabad, Hitec City, the journey of a MarketPlace IT Solutions is a wonderful breakthrough”, says Sivaraju.
SabRentKaro.com is a technology platform that provides end-to-end services from onboarding, insuring and shipping product from owners to renters. It’s a platform that reinvents the entire rental experience not just for renters but also for owners. SabRentKaro.com is one of the very few platforms which has end-to-end automation in the rental cycle. With the most effective and efficient controls and security in place, the team is ensuring that they are safe guarding not only their renters, who are their end clients, but also the product owners, who contribute to the wealth of products that are available online. They have filed patents in the rental processes which will separate them from their competition.
“From the various so called waves we have seen over the past so many years, like the Y2K wave, outsourcing wave, the next wave will be that of Shared Economy. SabRentKaro is extremely well positioned to be a part of ‘making the wave’ of shared economy which the world will witness soon.” Says Sivaraju.
This startup went live in November with its main focus of high presence on social media. Their USP is “Bringing entrepreneurship to every common person’s doorstep, without additional investments, creating recurring earnings from their already made investments.”
SabRentKaro practically turns every household into a virtual warehouse which has many underutilized assets.

The Founder and CEO of this startup, Raj Sivaraju has over 25 years of IT experience. He was the CIO of Deloitte US in India. This startup is his brainchild which was a result of his conversation with his 13 year old son who wanted to buy XBOX games. What started as a gaming exchange platform soon evolved into a full fledge rental marketplace. Raj soon was able to put a team of co-founders who worked with him over the years, who believed in the idea and put everything aside and joined him. Today the team consists of
