Rent-my-Stuff: Peer to Peer Equipment Rental Insurance
It seems like you can rent just about anything you need these days. At Duuo, we’re big fans of the sharing economy! That’s why we’ve become the only insurance company in Canada to offer on-demand “Rent-my-Stuff” insurance to equipment owners.
Rent-my-Stuff insurance is designed specifically to remove the risk and discomfort of renting your valued belongings to strangers.
Not only does the sharing economy reduce waste, but it also comes with financial benefits for both parties.
Owners are able to make a little extra money by renting out their stuff, and renters get easy access to things they only need for a little while. It’s a total win-win!
Rent-my-Stuff Insurance coverage from Duuo is:
- Designed to protect your belongings in the event of theft, loss, or accidental damage.
- Episodic or “on-demand”. This means you only pay for coverage while your stuff is being rented.
- Easily purchased online in minutes.
- Intended to remove the headache of relying on your renter to get proper insurance.
- Supported by a simple, online claims process.

Yes, that’s the protection that Duuo is designed to provide to our gear owners. With a Duuo policy, you are covered for things like theft or accidental damage. Like any insurance policy there are some exclusions (that you can read about in the full policy details), but in general your Duuo insurance policy covers you for direct physical loss or damage of your gear.
Once you start the process of booking coverage for a rental period, you’ll be able to see the maximum value of your policy. This is determined by a few key factors, including the value of your gear.
If your gear is less than 24 months old (from the date of manufacture), Duuo will pay for its replacement cost or the cost of repairs up to the limit of your insurance policy.
If your gear is more than 24 months old (from the date of manufacture), Duuo will pay for its actual cash value up to the limit of your insurance policy.
Regardless of the age of your gear, you are always limited to the maximum value of your policy. That’s why it’s important to list your gear accurately when purchasing your Duuo policy.
Well, it’s really very easy! Creating an account with Duuo and purchasing coverage for your gear takes just a few minutes and can be done completely online. Plus, once you have an account you’ll be able to purchase new policies in just seconds.
