Peerby, what is it?

Peerby is a Dutch website where you can ask with a personal account if you can borrow things from people in your neighbourhood. When you need a hammer or your vacuum cleaner just broke, you can ask it at the website and all the registered people can contact you if they are nearby and can lend you that.

Why is it cool?

It is cool because at this website you don’t have to waste your time on calling people who don’t have that kinda stuff or don’t want to lend it to you. When there is someone on the site with a vacuum cleaner you can chat with him and arrange where you can pick it up, so it is a lot easier and safer to borrow things. And when you haven’t got a hammer and need it for one day you don’t have to buy it which is a lot cheaper, too.
