Searching For Items

You can search for an item by Keyword and type in the area of your choice by Town, City or Postcode. Then select the search radius from the dropdown menu. You can also browse by Category. Click the titles for a dropdown menu to open with the sub-categories. You can filter search item results by category by clicking on the link or the checkbox. You can view the items by List or Map, filter the results by Rental Price Low and High, and Price per Day and Week. All items can be enlarged when rolling over any part of the image. When you have selected an item to view you will be taken to the Item Information page for a full view of the item including Item Location map and comments from other members on the item and the option to share a comment you may have about the item.

Arranging A Rental

If you wish to rent an item simply click on the Rent It! button; or if you have a question for the Rentor click on Contact the Rentor. When you have clicked the Rent It! button a pop-up box will appear where you can use our calendar to select your desired rental date and then enter the number of days you wish to rent the item for. You can also, if needed, enter a message for the Rentor. When complete simply click Contact The Rentor and an email notification will be sent to the Rentor.

Collection And Return Of An Item

Once you have agreed the terms of your rental (including the exchange of a deposit if requested by the Rentor) and whether the item will be delivered or collected, the process is complete and the Rentee is then able to enjoy the benefits of the item for the agreed time period. At the end of the agreed rental period the item is then returned (or collected) to the Rentor and ready for its next rental.
