HIREkeke.com, a free online rental marketplace for products and services has been launched in Ghana. It’s a platform for people to post free classified ads or have access to products and services for HIRE, RENT or LEASE all over Ghana.
HIREkeke.com has eight main categories with over 57 detailed subcategories. It offers a comprehensive list of products and services by various owners all over Ghana; ranging from heavy duty equipment and tools, bouncy castles, canopies, PA systems, catering and decoration, table and chairs, cars, apartments, scaffolds, warehouses, laundry services, car towing services, waste management, trucks to deliver trips of sand, gravel, stones or water etc.
The name HIREkeke.com is a fusion of the English word “Hire” and the Ga word “keke”, which simply means “HIRE ONLY”.
Explaining to journalist, the CEO of KimOe Technologies Limited (Owners of Hirekeke.com), Mr. Michel Abanga said, ‘the rental marketplace just got a boost with the launch of HIREkeke.com. The idea is to organise the rental marketplace in Ghana and promote the idea of renting, hiring or leasing products as well as the provision of services to save money and the time used in getting them.
He further explained that people go through a lot of stress trying to find what they want for rent, lease or hire even in this computer age where about 65.74% of mobile phone users in Ghana have access to Internet. The platform was meant to solve that problem. He said “my car once broke down on the motorway and it took me more than two hours to get help. First I called friends to see if they knew and had the contact of any towing car services after it was established by my mechanic that the car needs to be towed to the workshop. I finally had to leave my car with the mechanic unprotected just to join public transport to search for help. With the introduction of HIREkeke.com this would be a thing of the past as well as help check prices of services and products in the rental marketplace”.
Businesses or individuals in the niche market who wants to post are simply required to submit a valid email address with pictures of their product or service and in three easy steps and their ad could be uploaded onto the site at no charge. Users could just do a search for any of the available services on HIREkeke.com and find what they want.
With top notch search engine optimization and search algorithm an individual could do a Google, bing or yahoo search for a product in Ghana and HIREkeke.com will be on the first page of that search if indeed the product had been listed on the website. The website has an easy to use and well-tailored interface which in no time will definitely revolutionize the rental market in Ghana.
HIREkeke.com is the complete website for any service or product in Ghana which is directly not into buying and selling.
