The Lease My Stuff Team
It is your responsibility to be careful when engaging in transactions. Lease My Stuff is not directly involved in transactions between listers and users; this website is for listers to advertise their products and services to users.
At the bottom of every listing is a Community Watch section. Please report listings that are illegal, fraudulent, or highly objectionable, or that otherwise breach our terms and conditions. We review all listings that are reported. Listings are not removed automatically.
If you don't trust someone, don't do business with them. Please be careful. Remember that Lease My Stuff is a New Zealand-only website. Don't transact with anyone unless they are in New Zealand.
Registration is free and lets you message listers, save your favourite listings and listers, and more. You must be a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident. You must be at least 18 years old.

Once you've found a listing you like, click the "Ask the lister a question" button in the "Message the lister" panel to contact the lister, ask the lister a question, or arrange a transaction. Users must register before they can message the lister.
Lease My Stuff offers a messaging system to users. On every listing is a "Message the Lister" section. Use this to contact the lister, ask them a question, or arrange a transaction.
Once you message a lister, you will be stored in that lister's customer list. Listers can send bulk messages to their customer list.
You can unsubscribe from a lister's messages at any time if you feel they are not of value, at which point you will be removed from their customer list. If you message that lister again, you will again be added to their customer list.
Likewise, listers can blacklist users who repeatedly send them unwanted messages.
By default, you will receive an email every time you get a message. You can turn this off in Email Options in My Stuff.
Lease My Stuff allows users to write reviews about listers and leave a rating out of five stars. Listers have the ability to publicly respond to reviews. To protect listers, reviews can't be edited after they're submitted. Users can write five reviews per lister ever, at the rate of one per month.
Any feedback or reviews you submit must not be offensive, defamatory, or inappropriate. You may only post feedback and reviews about a lister if you have actually transacted with, or made a reasonable attempt to transact with, that lister. Reviews must be factual. Any opinions reflected in feedback or reviews you submit to the website must be honestly and genuinely held by you. You must not post a negative review or feedback without making a reasonable effort to resolve your issue with the lister. You must not post feedback or reviews about yourself or your businesses. Lease My Stuff may remove any unsuitable feedback or reviews.
Choose a plan by clicking on a price. You can choose a 12-month, 2-year, or 3-year subscription, with a maximum of 1, 5, 10, 20, 100, 250, or 500 listings.
Your listings are entirely editable. You can even change the category of the listing!
Gold listings are ranked first in search and browsing results. Silver listings are ranked below gold listings. Bronze listings are ranked below gold and silver listings. Normal listings are ranked fourth. Free listings are ranked last.
2-year subscriptions are 10% cheaper and 3-year subscriptions are 20% cheaper. You can pay with either credit cards or PayPal.
Once you've subscribed, fill in the "Create a listing" form to create a listing. You can add photos to the listing after you've created the listing in My Listings. You are free to list any contact details you wish to include on your listings, but this may discourage members from using the messaging system to contact you. This disadvantages you because only users who message you from your listings will be added to your Customer List.
You can manage your subscription and update your payment details from the Create Listing page or the My Subscription section in My Stuff. You can edit your listings, add and delete photos, and delete your listings in My Listings.
You can upgrade to a new plan by clicking on a price and following the instructions. Upgrading can be very cheap because the cost of your upgrade is always lowered by the remaining value of your current plan!
If the cost of upgrading doesn't cover our processing cost then we'll add the processing cost to the cost of the upgrade. The processing cost is $4 for PayPal or $3 for credit cards. Similarly, if you're switching to a plan of the same value, you'll only be charged $4 for PayPal or $3 for credit cards. Processing costs are in New Zealand dollars and include GST.
A downgrade is when you switch to a lower-value plan. You can schedule a downgrade by clicking on a plan with a lower value than your current plan and following the instructions.
Lease My Stuff offers a customer relationship management system to listers. Every time a user messages you, they are added to your Customer List. This lets you quickly find customers to send messages to individually. You can also sort your customers into Customer Groups. You can then send Bulk Messages to your different groups.
By default, you will already have three groups: Potential Customers, Existing Customers, and High-Value Customers. You can create, delete, and rename groups, and add and remove users to and from them. As new users message you and get added to your Customer List, add them to groups to keep track of them and easily send bulk messages to all users in a group.
You are free to list any contact details you wish to include on your listings, but this may discourage members from using the messaging system to contact you. This disadvantages you because only users who message you from your listings will be added to your Customer List.
