Hirejungle - the first peer-to-peer platform that enables users to hire and hire out goods and services from either businesses or individuals in UK.

Groundbreaking peer-to-peer platform HireJungle.co.uk makes it possible for first time to hire and hire out both goods and services from either businesses or individuals. With its fast-growing database of local businesses making good use of their free promotion (hundreds of thousands are already registered), this London-based start-up has quickly raised standards across the hiring industry.

Hiring Goods and Services

HireJungle appears to be a game changer in cyberspace’s hiring scene, simultaneously displaying search results for both products and services allowing users to properly determine their best choice when it comes to either hiring skilled workforce or finding the right products to do it themselves at a cheaper cost. HireJungle empowers both the owners, who can start earning extra income from hiring out products/services, and also the hirers, who can make more informed decisions when searching for the most cost-effective solution. HireJungle's solutions are very valuable in crisis times, reason that inspired the development of this new hiring platform.

Users have the ability to list their goods and services at no cost. Hiring contracts are then formalized between the owner and the hirer, with no participation from HireJungle, which only provides the connection interface between the two parties. Commission-free transactions and publications are some of the core values the new start-up promotes.

Safety when Hiring and Hiring out

HireJungle addresses the concern of possible damaged or lost items by encouraging owners to request a deposit on all items that are hired out. A sample hiring contract is provided so those users who are hiring out their items can operate safely.

No pre-payments are required for securing transactions. Owners’ emails are not disclosed for privacy purposes. Interested hirers are required to fill in a form in order to place their enquiry, and owners will review all forms before getting in touch with potential hirers.

How it works?

There are two different categorsations: one for products and one for services. Users can publish free classified ads to promote their products or services respectively. Searches can be completed by browsing categories or by using the powerful search bar found on the top menu.

Product and Services categories are linked in a fashion that ensures relevant search results, displaying the services classifieds on the left-hand side and the products classifieds on the right. For instance, a search query for “builders in London” will not just display results for the builders’ services available in that area, but also building-related products such as drills, ladders, screwdrivers, just to name but a few.

Geo-location features makes the whole search experience easier, as users can look for products and services by region, country, city, or post code in the UK. Multi-publishing options are available for companies that stock the same products in different locations.

Car Hire Price Comparison Engine

In addition to the standard feature that allows users to post classified ads, HireJungle has also incorporated an innovative car hire price comparison booking engine. This tool’s advanced technology allows users to compare car rental prices, and in a matter of seconds, users can see the top 500 car hire firms from over 25.000 locations worldwide displaying the cheapest available rates.

From economy cars to luxury Ferraris, any vehicle can be hired in 3 steps. When making reservations, users are only required to put down 15% of the total hiring agreement.
