Terms and Conditions

BOSH Website Conditions

Please read through these Terms carefully before using this website.

who we are, what we do and why we do it 
This website is an item rental destination. we feature information about third party businesses or projects from around the United Kingdom that borrow, hire, rent or share items, items we have put through the ‘garage test’ [read more ] – it’s a good test, we promise!  

We do this because borrowing is better for the planet by preventing a demand for our precious resources. our mission is to facilitate the easy rental of high-quality items to people, through a business model that reduces planetary impact and builds social inclusion, in a radically transparent way. In doing so we align our actions with our values. 

net positive impact: We take into consideration the impact, both human and natural, of every BOSH process and act, not to just minimise harm, but where possible, to have a net positive impact.

business as a vehicle for good: Businesses should act to better the communities they serve and the environments they inhabit. we strive to put the planet’s needs first, above financial reward or gain, and use our business as an opportunity to build strong, resilient, skilled communities. Where appropriate, we will also lobby for changes at a higher level that will contribute to building a better world for all.

disrupt the status quo: From radical transparency, challenging outdated habits and behaviours, to sharing our learnings, we believe these are fundamental business practices for the 21st century. We don’t want to do business as usual… in fact, we’ll actively avoid it.

natural ecosystem thinking:We see BOSH as part of an ecosystem, a web that links communities, businesses and individuals. We’ll play our part to build harmonious relationships, and champion, support and collaborate with those who can help us to co-create a better world.
