It was in 2015 during the Delhi – Ladakh trip that reinforced the founder’s zeal to run a company in the online renting space. During the trip, the founder and his friends were in dire need of bikes, gears, camping types of equipment, DSLRs and hence zeroed in on searching such kinds of stuff online. Unfortunate enough, they ended up finding no one in the online rental space who could meet their requirements. However, after exploring a few other options, they managed to find a local vendor who in the mid-way withdrew his support. Witnessing this, the founder perceived an opportunity and decided to develop a platform which would simplify online renting. This led to the beginning of SnapOnRent in 2016.
