Edinburgh Tool Library is joining forces with Farr Out Deliveries to deliver our tools straight to your door, and back again. Tools ordered from our Leith location can be delivered to you on Saturdays and picked up again on Fridays.
Who Is Farr Out?
Edinburgh homegrown, Farr Out delivers everything by cargo bike; surfing the city’s notorious cobbles and climbing its hills in aid of the local community, they’re beautifully merging environmental consciousness with the joy of cycling.
And yes, bicycle couriers have been around for a while, but the unique feature of being a company focused on cargo bike deliveries made Farr Out a perfect pairing for the Tool Library.
Getting Your Tools Delivered
Any member located in the core delivery area will be able to request their tools to be picked up from the tool library by cargo bike during our opening times and delivered home. And likewise, to have the same tools collected from home and returned to the tool library.
Setting Up Your Delivery
- Reserve tools for delivery using the usual reservation method.
- Please note that only tools from our Meadowbank location are covered by this service.
- When the system prompts you to select a pick-up time please select the last time slot at 23:00 PM on a Friday, so that we know you’re getting the tools delivered and can prepare them for Farr Out to pick-up.
- Once you receive a confirmation email (usually by Thursday evening) that your tools are ready for pick up, purchase the delivery directly on Farr Out website via the link below.
Core Delivery Area
We hope to expand to more areas in Edinburgh, so please let us know if you are outside of the delivery zone and interested in the delivery services!
If your order is less than 5 kg, Farr Out has set a flat fee of £5.50, regardless of the delivery zone. For larger, heavier (above 5kg) ones, or deliveries further afield, see the Farr Out pricing chart for estimative costs. Contact Farr Out for a quote and for payment details.
