Lender In The Spotlight


Meet Caitlin! She is a huge lover of food & fashion, working full time as an E.A at an accounting firm and earning some extra money on the side by lending out her beautiful closet from the sunny east coast of Australia. We took 5 with her to get her take on what it’s like being a lending member of The Volte community. Read on to get the scoop…

Where are you based?
Brisbane, QLD

The Volte is a really easy website to navigate and use when you’re first starting out. Plus the fair service fees are a bonus!

How long have you been a Volte lender? 
Around 6 months now since I signed up.

What is your take on hiring fashion to reduce the war on waste? 
It is such a good idea, a way for us to do our bit to reduce clothing waste in landfill. I also love that hiring designer dresses makes it more accessible to everyone and gives girls with all budgets a chance to wear some really nice quality pieces without breaking the bank.

What are your top 3 best things about lending with The Volte?
1) How easy The Volte makes it for the average person to rent a designer dress Australia wide.
2) Fair and low service fees = more profit for the lender.
3) Really good customer service in the event you come across any issues.

Advice for borrowers who are considering becoming a lender? 
Definitely do it! It really is so easy to set up and if you are anything like me and hate wearing statement pieces more than once, it’s the perfect solution.

Anything else you would like to add for our readers?
The Volte is the best way to recoup some of the costs along the way for your more expensive investment dresses. Get onboard ladies!
