Loan return date

Loan or rent out surplus assets

As well as one way donations, the Warp It system also facilitates the loaning or rental of items. Think of it as a room booking system but for assets, equipment and any common items.

Loan information section

Popular uses

The loan facility is well used for items that are common in each office but are used infrequently, such as laminators, binders, fans etc. The loan feature is used extensively for high value, low use equipment like sport apparatus and laboratory kit- especially between schools and labs.

Loan out stored items

Booking out commonly held assets

The loan feature can also be used to book out items from a store, such as laptops, safety equipment and vehicles etc. The loan feature can also be used by staff who have a stock of equipment and traditionally book it out over email like table clothes, a frame, advertising boards, tools etc.

Loaning guidelines and terms

Loaning guidelines & liabilities

In the same method as standard donations there are guidelines to loans and Terms & Conditions. Organisations can customise this agreement for their own purposes.

What our customers are saying



I think this is a great service! 

It reduces waste and means we can efficiently re-use equipment across the University.

It's easy to see what's available and arrange collection.

I work across multiple locations so Warp It meant I was able to fit out a second desk without my host department having to pay for anything!

Easy, Efficient, Valuable system!

Anon, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust

Brilliant way of reusing items and saving the need to purchase new stuff.

Our team have made huge savings money wise and it is kinder to the planet to be able to put items to use that would otherwise go to rubbish.

Love it!
