B) Put down a damage deposit for half the amount of the the item

2

Choose rental period, pickup and return time and book the item.

Pick it up from the owner at scheduled time. You'll be able to coordinate pickup and return with them via messages on FriendWithA as well as text messages (without revealing your phone number).

Return the item to loaner.

How Lending Works

1

Sign up, verify your email and phone:
A) If item is over $1,000, an ID is required in order to lend your gear

2

Fill out the details of your listing. Add a title, few photos, and let us know what you paid for the item and how long you've had it. We insure your item instantly with property and liability insurance. After that just let us know your availability and your gear is live and ready to be rented!

Confirm bookings with a single click! Arrange a convenient location and pickup and return can be coordinated via text message chat on FriendWithA (your personal phone number is always private). All the items you loan on FriendWithA can be insured up to $3,000 and your personal liability is insured up to $100,000.
