Rent-A-Rower

NEED HELP DOING YARD WORK OR MOVING HEAVY FURNITURE?

HIRE SOME ATHLETIC ROWERS TO DO IT FOR YOU!

The Rent-A-Rower (RAR) program has been an integral part of the Ohio State University Crew Club since its inception in 1978. To this date, it remains the team’s main fundraiser and provides the valuable funds that allows us to purchase new equipment, pay for coaching, and travel for races.

Rowers are available to help you with things such as:

  • Raking
  • Mulching
  • Cleaning out garages
  • Gardening
  • Painting
  • Moving furniture

The Rent-A-Rower program is a business operated and maintained by members of the OSU Crew Club. As such, orders requested with too short a notice may not be processed in time so please be sure to order your Rent-A-Rower at least 1 week in advance.

Due to the competitive nature of the club, there are a few activities that rowers are not allowed to perform such as climbing ladders, operating power tools, or anything that involves an open flame. If you have any questions about what your Rower can or cannot do contact our RAR Director at osucrewrar@gmail.com.

Rowers are available for four-hour blocks of time on Saturdays and Sundays and a minimum of two rowers must be hired at a time (due to safety and carpool concerns). Payment is $70/rower for a four-hour block of time.

To request a Rent-A-Rower, please email the Director of Rent-A-Rowers (Ethan Laver) at osucrewrar@gmail
