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

What our customers are saying



Very simple, very clear and we've reduced landfill, found a resource we need and saved a fortune!

Anon, Aberdeenshire Council

Over the years on occasion I have seen a lot of reusable stuff nearly go to waste as there was no facility for services who would welcome the stuff to know it was available.

In the past I have physically taken lever arch/ring binder files that one dept on one site was chucking over to another at another site where I knew these were needed.

I use the bus and made several trips using black bags to carry them in.

Well done for undertaking this!
