App wanted: Is there an ITM counterpart to Airbnb? If not, could someone please build one?
Traveling by air with instruments can be trivial (flute, whistle) or troublesome (harp, banjo, guitar). My wife and I just got back from O’Flaherty’s Irish Musical Retreat, which was very good this year (not paid to say this). A friend of ours from Canada was in attendance, and met with us at DFW to share a car down to Midlothian, TX. Of course I noticed that he didn’t have his banjo (my Nechville was in our checked bag, dissembled - not paid to say this either) . He explained that he was borrowing a banjo from a friend near Dallas.
Among other instruments, my wife plays harp, and would love to be able to use a harp at some of the musical events we attend. A solution would be for her to borrow or rent one from someone in the vicinity. Is there an efficient way to find people or businesses near a certain location and during certain dates who would be willing to rent or otherwise ‘share’ an instrument? I realize that things like insurance, deposit, written agreement and other important aspects would need to be dealt with, but that would be up to the app builder.
Does an efficient way to do this exist? If not, can someone please make it so and let us all know when it’s ready. Thanks.
