Be Bertoozie Kind
How to be Bertoozie Kind
In our simplest form, BERTOOZIE brings local gear owners together with renters looking for alternate gear sources. BERTOOZIE makes the process easier by acting as a neutral third party, that collects and holds payments for rentals and purchases, and remits the payments to the owners upon successful delivery.
The bottom line in the beginning…$$ and our charitable twist.
There is no charge to view or place a listing on BERTOOZIE. We only make money when gear is rented or sold. This makes it easy for productions, to source all their gear under one account creating a single virtual source.
When gear is rented we collect the funds for the rental and hold back 10% of the rental charge from the owner and 4% from the Renter as the BERTOOZIE service charges. When gear is sold we retain a 10% service charge from the seller and 4% from the buyer. Bertoozie charges HST on all service charges. These fees cover the cost of collecting and managing payments, customer service, and website maintenance. Of those funds 5% will be donated to charity. The remainder of the rental revenue is deposited into your bank account.
