BrellaBox- Umbrella Rental Vending Machines

If you carry an umbrella with you it’s sure to be sunny all day. If you leave it at home, it will rain cats and dogs. With BrellaBox you’re always covered. You can just rent an umbrella when you need it, and return it when you don’t.

BrellaBox was co-founded by New York city residents, John O’Connor and Anusha Kambhampaty, who were looking for an eco-friendly alternative to buying cheaply made umbrellas from street vendors or using the flimsy disposable type. Their solution is a streamlined umbrella rental service complete with easy-to-use umbrella vending machines. The umbrellas are built to last, and since they get returned after use, BrellaBox cuts down on the massive quantity of umbrellas that are dumped into landfills every year. You can even return a broken umbrella to the BrellaBox machine.

Businesses can benefit from having a machine on premises as much as those who find themselves stuck in the rain with no shelter. It’s a great amenity for employees, guests, and members, and the machines can be custom designed to fit the aesthetic of it’s environment. The umbrellas can be branded with company logos and messages, and the business can decide what rental rate to charge. The umbrellas are “smart” and can sync with BrellaBox software which can track the umbrellas to keep an eye on the inventory.

BrellaBox is also a great fit for city parks, public attractions, shopping districts and colleges. It provides a fantastic public service and branding opportunity, and is a unique way to generate revenue.
