TOOLBOT: THE SELF-SERVICE RENTAL KIOSK FOR DRILLS, SAWS AND MORE

TOOLBOT: THE SELF-SERVICE RENTAL KIOSK FOR DRILLS, SAWS AND MORE

Getting tooled up for a home improvement project normally means a costly trip to the DIY store or bugging your friend for their drill or saw. Well now there’s a third way with startup Toolbot, which lets you reserve and rent power tools with your phone. The super simple service lets you hire by the hour and pick up and return your tool whenever you want to – evenings and Sundays too. Just reserve the tool you need on the website and head to one of the self-service pickup points located in Spätis. Use your phone to unlock the tool and you’re ready to go. Consumables like drill bits and saw blades are either included or available to buy at the pick-up point, while handy how-to guides on Toolbot’s YouTube channel show you the ABC of cutting and sanding. Started by industrial designer Jan Gerlach in 2019, Toolbot is currently beta testing stations in Neukölln and Prenzlauer Berg. North or south, now there’s no excuse for putting off that project.
