From cots, plane pals and bouncers to prams, high chairs, and baby monitors, buying all the essentials for a newborn can cost a pretty penny for parents. Then in less than a year or two, parents may find that most of these 'as new' items go into storage or await the arrival of a new baby.

New parents and budding entrepreneurs Eva and Tom thought that many of these quality items could have a lease of new life, either for new mums or dads who are travelling or families who need baby equipment for visiting relatives.

In October 2016, the couple launched Tree Hut Village, Australia's first parent to parent baby equipment hire platform. Anyone can join and if you have unused baby equipment around your house, consider lending it out through Tree Hut Village - in return, you will make a bit of extra cash which you can put towards new purchases or perhaps a family trip.

Eva and Tom, came up with Tree Hut Village when they were looking for baby equipment for their visiting niece. It proved to be a difficult exercise and they thought that hiring should be easier and more affordable and created the 3-Step Tree Hut Village platform:

  • If you are Borrowing, simply search the available baby equipment near you, choose your dates and make your booking request and confirm pick up or delivery arrangements with the lender.

  • If you are Lending, upload details and photos of the equipment you want to lend for free, choose which bookings to take and once payment has been processed, meet up and lend out your baby equipment.

    It's easy, safe and secure and the Tree Hut Village has swiftly grown to over 1,000 members Australia wide.

    Prior to Tree Hut Village, parents would lug their bulky baby equipment around on their travels or alternatively go through a lengthy hire process through brick and mortar hire businesses - now all you have to do is head to www.treehutvillage.com.au, register an account and starting searching or listing!
