Why buy a power drill if all you need to do with it is hang up one small painting on the wall? Such a waste! That is what the creators of Peerby felt as well. This app allows you to see who is offering items on loan in your area. You can also use the app to announce if others are welcome to borrow your backpack. To make it easier to search for items, they have been divided into categories, such as ‘tools’, ‘cookery’ and ‘travel’. If the item that you are looking for is not among the things on offer, you can post a request. Once you have found someone in your area that has the device that you are looking for, you use the chat facility to make an appointment.
Since the beginning of 2015, it is also possible to request payment for lending out your items through Peerby. The app arranges both the payment and the insurance.
