KALAMUNDA en­tre­pre­neur Troy Donoghue is dis­rupt­ing the lo­cal hire in­dus­try and help­ing lo­cals earn a lit­tle ex­tra pocket money at the same time by lend­ing their idle items to the com­mu­nity.

Mr Donoghue said he stum­bled upon the idea to launch Hi­dle when he was try­ing to solve his own quandary of deal­ing with an end­less ar­ray of kids’ stuff ly­ing around.

“We de­liver a rev­o­lu­tion­ary clas­si­fieds plat­form al­low­ing peo­ple to hire out their lazy items to those who live or work in their com­mu­nity,” he said.

“If you’re on the hunt for some­thing for a day or a month or you have items in good con­di­tion ly­ing about in the back­yard or get­ting dusty in the garage, then Hi­dle is the place for some­one to hire it out for ex­tra money.

“We of­fer ev­ery­thing from kayaks to welders to car­a­vans, pres­sure wash­ers to freez­ers, even the sport­ing gear that sud­denly does not fit the kids any­more.

“It is free to ad­ver­tise and just about ev­ery­thing is wel­come on Hi­dle.”

Mr Donoghue said the con­cept had been em­braced by the com­mu­nity since its launch at the end of 2017.
