What is Burly?
The sharing economy is rapidly growing, a key feature of which is maximizing the utility of fixed assets that aren’t constantly in use. It creates a revenue stream for owners and cuts costs for the end customer. The well-known examples of this sharing economy model are companies such as Uber and Airbnb, which serve as platforms that allow drivers and homeowners to make money from their cars and houses.
That sharing model has arrived for the construction industry. Burly is a startup that facilitates peer-to-peer sharing between construction equipment owners and companies that have temporary equipment needs. Its platform helps propel new revenues to equipment owners and saves renters time and money.

What problems does Burly solve?
There are many rental equipment yards charging high prices. A construction or agriculture professional seeking to rent equipment will spend hours talking to several rental yards, checking equipment availability and comparing prices. These renters need a more efficient and cost-effective solution. With Burly's marketplace, renters quickly search online inventory, see transparent prices, and book a rental in minutes.
There are many construction and agriculture companies with fleets of dormant construction equipment. Idle and underutilized equipment is costly and doesn’t produce revenue. The solution to this problem is to rent the equipment, but these companies are not structured for equipment marketing, contract management, payment processing, insurance and other details necessary to rent their equipment. These equipment owners need a turnkey solution to rent their equipment. With Burly's marketplace, equipment owners can post listings in just a few minutes and Burly handles the marketing, contracts, payments, insurance and delivery options.
