James owns the TILE CUTTER. Organise a rental by asking James any questions and then placing a booking. If it's accepted you can then arrange a pickup.
We all have questions at times that might not be covered by what's in front of us, which is why we have the a conversation feature. This allows you to have a private conversation with another member to clear up what you want to know about an item and is a way to get to know the other people on Open Shed before you meet and share items safely. You can converse as much as you need without ever exchanging personal details and really to get know what you need to know about a person or their item.
The beauty of Open Shed is it is an online portal listing what people want to share with others, so you don't have to travel to a shop or warehouse to rent anything. The more people we have sharing on Open Shed, the more fun and useful it will be for everybody!
The easiest way to find out if there is stuff in your area is to search.
So you're the intrepid kind that likes to fly by the seat of their pants, hey? You can make a rental on the day or within a couple of days of when you need the item. Just remember little fleet footer, some people don't check their email every day so it is in your best interest to allow a bit of time for the person to get back to you where you can. You might also consider using the "Ask a Question" feature to see how quickly you can get your hands on an item with a couple of members if you have a few choices.
In this fast paced world, we know that some people like to plan ahead. If you want to plan your rental in advance, we recommend using the "Ask a Question" feature to let the other member know you are interested in their item and ask if it is available during the period you had in mind. Once you get closer to the timeframe, send through your rental request and your on your way.
Not until you meet the owner to pickup the item. This is an important safety feature of Open Shed that means you get to see the item before making a final decision to proceed. Also the owner has the peace of mind that the pickup has been recorded by Open Shed. Until that point, we just require a payment authorisation when you place the booking so we can make sure everything is streamlined during pickup.
We've designed Open Shed to make it as safe as possible for you to share your items with the rest of the Open Shed community. You can get an idea about someone through reading their profile, access feedback on their previous rentals and send messages privately to get to know individual members better. You are always in control, so if you don't feel comfortable sharing your stuff with someone or meeting them for any reason you don't have to.
