The Idea That Got Ruckify Started

How Ruckify Started

By now we all know the story of where the inspiration for Ruckify started  from. Our Founder Steve Cody’s neighbor, and now partner, Bruce Linton, were looking to clean up some fallen trees and needed a chainsaw. As much his neighbor wanted to buy one, he knew better than to risk marital discord over a piece of equipment he really only needed for a short while. But Steve’s neighbor didn’t know where he could get a chainsaw for a few hours.

A light bulb went on in Steve’s mind and the idea was born for a marketplace app that allows people to share assets on a short-term basis. Ruckify allows those with under-used assets to make them available to people who need this asset for a short period of time. All without having to buy them. Someone makes money, someone saves money.

Why It Works

It makes perfect sense and is a natural next phase in today’s sharing economy. Baby Boomers and Gen X-ers are at a point in their lives where they want to simplify their lives and own fewer things. Millennials and Gen Zs are avoiding or delaying buying things for as long as possible. They still want the experiences of using those things (cars, homes, camping equipment, sporting equipment, a/v equipment, etc…), but they don’t want to own them. Ruckify is the perfect place to find those things from a trusted source, use them for a while, and return them.

Oh, and by the way, every time you rent something using the Ruckify app, Ruckify started a program that will plant a tree on your behalf. ​

Make some money, save some money, help the environment.
