Do you have expensive pieces of equipment which get used rarely? Of course you do, everyone does and that’s the premise behind Peerby, a Dutch app that helps people engage with the sharing economy and live a little greener and cheaper.
To begin, users download the app and list all under-utilised items they would be happy to lend out. It can be anything from a lawnmower to a disco ball. Then borrowers can search the database for a particular item they need or browse categories for nearby offers. When they find what they are looking for they can negotiate with the owner within the app and arrange to meet and borrow the item. Borrowers can also create posts with requests for items that they haven’t been able to find.
This definitely sounds like something that could work here in the UK.
