All our loans work on a weekly basis, and you can borrow items for up to five weeks at a time. Members are encouraged to return items as soon as they are finished to keep items available for circulation. A late fee will be charged for items returned past their due date.

Is it possible for me to cancel my reservation?

Yes, certainly! You can either log-in and cancel it yourself or contact us via info@shareshed.org.uk or 07516 908237.

If you give us at least a week of notice, you’ll be entitled to a refund (please note refunds might take a few days to be processed).

Can I borrow more than one item at a time?

Yes! We allow up to 10 items at a time to be borrowed by a single member.

What happens if I damage an item?

At the Share Shed, we act from a place of trust. Normal wear and tear of items is inevitable, and we’ll discuss with you about any item that stops working while in your care. More details about damaged items can be found on our member waiver agreement, when you sign up.

Where do the items come from?

Our aim is to operate entirely with community donations from people downsizing, moving, or cleaning up basements, sheds, and garages. So far, the Share Shed has only purchased less than 10 items in over four years of its existence.

Can I reserve items?

Certainly! When you become a member, you’ll have your own log-in information that can be used to reserve items.

Alternatively, you can email us on info@shareshed.org.uk or call us on 07516 908237 to enquire about reservations.
