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



I think this is a fantastic way to reuse items that would otherwise end up in landfill..... Great work Warp It!

Heather Silk-Jones, University of Reading

I hate the idea of anything usable going to landfill!

One man's thing is another man's thingy.

I forget the details of the saying. :-)

Gordon Couper, Aberdeenshire Council

It's great to have a service dedicated to reusing as there are often perfectly useable items that would otherwise go to waste.

We've been able to furnish an entire office using items from Warp It and it's saved us a lot of hassle, money and doesn't look half bad.
