Borrow-it is the easy way to borrow something useful without buying it in a shop. Or, if you already have the thing, it's a great way to make a bit of cash lending it out to someone you trust. Lawnmower, paella pan, jetwash, socket set, Batman costume, tent - you name it, Borrow-it aims to find it.
As a lender you keep 100% of the lending charge (usual PayPal fees apply) and Borrow-it takes a flat £1 from the borrower for each item whatever the value or length of the loan. Check out our microsite for more ideas www.borrow-itapp.com
Using Borrow-it couldn't be easier: just upload a photo of the thing you want to lend out and a suggested daily charge. Our in-app functionality lets you search for items by location and you can message owners to check details and agree a price. Payment is in advance within the app using PayPal and once the money is transferred, contact details are released and the borrowing can start.
If you can’t find what you're looking for, you can send a message to all users in your area to see if anyone can help. Easy!
Lenders and borrowers can leave feedback and it won't be long before you build your trust rating - so make your life easier and get borrowing and lending.
Borrow-it uses your location in the background to update potential borrowers around you with your current location. Please note, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life and the app requires a good data connection to operate effectively.

What a great idea!
Such a simple idea! Most of us have tools, trailers, boats, ladders - you name it, just sitting around poorly utilised. Why not lend out such items? Earn something from it (fully insured against loss/damage, btw) and let somebody else have the advantage of borrowing something they need without the expense and hassle of buying it or hiring it? Win:win! A very intuitive and easy to use app, why didn't I think of this?!
A brilliant idea for an app which would be of use to most people. Good that's it's free to download and browse and I like the in app messaging to ask questions before commuting.
Great app. Not sure why no one has done this before as makes such good sense. Great functionality too.
