Save money on transporting your item home

Charlotte, March 31, 2022

Looking for an easy way to collect and transport some of our bigger items home? Or maybe you’re struggling to find the time to pop in and collect the items you need? Take a look at how you can save on transporting your things home.

We really appreciate the feedback our borrowers have shared about moments when transport has proven tricky.

Although we can’t operate our own delivery service right now, we have teamed up with our friends at Zipcar to offer you a discount on their service to make it easier to get our things to your home, affordably and sustainably.

How to get your discount code

We hope this offer makes borrowing even more convenient for you, or it’ll just help you save a bit of cash when you need some help with transport.

Find the item you need in our catalogue and make your reservation. You'll receive a confirmation email with the link you need to use so you can book your transport.

How to join Zipcar and get £10 free driving credit

Zipcar is the UKs biggest car sharing club, offering 24/7 car and van hire in your local neighbourhood. We’ve teamed up to offer our borrowers who are new to trying Zipcar £10 driving credit to help with getting your items home.

Please note you have to become a Zipcar member first to claim your driving credit, so it’s worth doing in advance of collecting your item. Approval can take up to 48 hours.

  • Sign up via the link in your borrowing confirmation email to become a Zipcar member
  • Pay the £10 application fee
  • Once your membership is confirmed, Zipcar will give you the £10 application fee back as driving credit
  • As you've signed up in the link via your email, £10 driving credit will be automatically applied to your account once approved

This means in total you end up with £20 driving credit. That’s enough to cover your trip to collect and return your item from our kiosk with some to spare!
