How it Works

How Borrowing Works

1

Find the item you'd like to borrow. Search dozens of categories from electric skateboards to boats.

2

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

3

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).

4

Return the item to loaner.

How Lending Works

1

List the items you are willing to loan to your peers.

2

Set your availability so that people looking to borrow your items can choose pickup and return times that work for you. You'll still have the opportunity to confirm or reject any individual bookings.

3

Loan your items to others. Pickup and return can be coordinated via chat on FriendWithA as well as text messages (without revealing your phone number to the borrower). All the items you loan on FriendWithA (except those loaned for free) are insured up to $2,000.

4

Earn money! We'll send all your earnings (starting from $100) to your bank account or debit card at your request.

Who can see and borrow my things?

By default, items you list on FriendWithA are available to everyone. However, if you prefer you can limit the area within which your items are available to a fixed distance from your location or even make them available only to your friends and group members.
