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

What our customers are saying


Dawn Howells, Hywel Dda University Health Board

Although it relies on good practice from the uploaders - I love the fact we can relove & reuse so many items!

We are such a throw away society that I now go onto Warp It for anything I need for work rather than putting in an order for new I am now prepared to wait to see if we can reuse.

Great idea and easy to use!

Need to plan ahead but what a great service!

Sue Perry, University of Brighton

Great free service and fast delivery of items once requested. And good satisfaction to know that items are recycled and saving money
