The Borrow Shop is for members to use various pieces of equipment for occasional use which they wouldn't want to buy themselves either on cost grounds, or because you would only rarely need to use them. Most items are stored at Netley HQ. Collection is normally arranged by the borrower. Items are used entirely at the members own risk and any loss or damage is made good by the person using the item which is agreed upon before the item is released. Borrowing is free in most cases and we trust our members to return the items promptly without the need to take a deposit. Any request for borrowing must be made using the specific borrow form shown below against the item of equipment.
Request borrow HERE unless otherwise stated.
If you have an item that you are willing to lend out to other members for occasional use then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a discount at Jewson Tool Hire for 50% off. See www.hplsoffers.org for how to redeem this offer.
