Local tool hire
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, famously noted that there are 80 million power drills in America whose average lifetime use is just 13 minutes. He posed the question: “Does everyone really need their own drill?” Fat Llama is a London-based platform which enables seamless peer-to-peer tool rentals which save borrowers money they would have spent on unnecessary purchases. It also benefits lenders by providing them with an additional income stream. And we’re not just talking about drill hire; our online tool hire also allows would-be gardeners to rent garden tools
Local tool hire should be exactly that: local. That’s why Fat Llama is connecting those in your neighbourhood who have spare stuff, with those who want to use it. We're available in all major cities, including London, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Bristol, Plymouth, Bradford, Hull, Nottingham, Salford, Newcastle, Leicester, Brighton, Southampton and more.

Download our app to easily search for the perfect tool for your needs. Once you’ve selected your tool, simply request it for your chosen dates, add your payment details and allow us to verify you. After that, message the lender to arrange a convenient time for collection and return. All users’ ratings and reviews are available on their profiles, so you can rent from suppliers with peace of mind - don’t forget to leave a review of your own once you’ve completed your rental.
