You are welcome to arrange a postal hire of our carriers, subject to availability (current stock can be seen in the catalogue here. Please note that this changes hourly!)

We do it by email and with Royal Mail (tracked service) to ensure your carrier arrives and that get the help and support that you need with your hire while you have it. While we do not charge deposits at our Sheffield library sessions, we do for postal hire. These are refundable on safe return of the carrier, and some special or rare items are not available on postal loans, as we are sure you can understand.

Please email us at to discuss.

You will need to confirm that you have read the Terms and Conditions and say in your email that you are happy to abide by them.

The deposit will be for the price of replacement of the carrier and needs to be sent by goods and services paypal – this will be refunded in full on return of the carrier if it is in the same condition that it was hired out to you.

The hire fees are £5 per week or £15 for 4 weeks. Post out to you is by special delivery which you will need to cover, it is usually about £10.25 (inc VAT) for one sling or £13.20 (inc VAT) for multiple slings and larger coats. Please return your hired items via the same service to ensure they are fully insured and will arrive quickly.

Hire fees and the postage costs are also paid by goods and services paypal (a separate payment) which is not refunded.
