Here’s your new tool shed
that really has it all.

We think: Every idea has the right to be realized. That's why we provide every creator, maker and do-it-yourselfer with just the professional tools he or she needs. Anytime via app – and charged by the minute. You start with a small minimum rental price, which includes all consumables and the first hours of use. This way, you don't just put your ideas into practice in a snap. You also save a lot of money, space and support the responsible use of resources. Great idea? Then off to the tool pool – and right into your next project.

Did you know: You can now also rent larger tools and construction equipment from our partner locations in your area and pick them up during business hours. All via smartphone.

Reserve tools and pick them up at the toolboxes 24/7 - or at our partner locations during business hours.

Daily news
  • We're making the idea of tool sharing even bigger!

    We are making the idea of tool sharing even bigger – with our new partner feature! From now on, we will show you in more and more places which tools are available at your local rental company or DIY store just around the corner! You can easily request tools, book them two weeks in advance and rent them fully digitally with this feature.
In order to make tool sharing accessible to even more people, we are also digitizing the process of the old, analog way of renting with our new #kurts partner feature.

This finally makes us a platform. As of now, we are expanding the variety of our tools and thus our platform to include the range of selected partners throughout the country. In doing so, we are making use of existing infrastructures and tools and thus driving forward the sustainable use of resources. In this way, we are also supporting the #circulareconomy as a brand and digital product. As of today, dozens of tools are available at the first partner location in Göttingen, from drills to mini-excavators. The app generates a code for the corresponding rental object which can be collected from the partner on site - including a short instruction from the professional! Behind this is a powerful backend for all partners, including access to exciting #datainsights. 
    Goodbye paper, telephone and availability transparency - hello new feature and #platform future! One more location will follow tomorrow, another one next week. Stay tuned! #toolsharing

  • DB Rad+ x kurts

    From now on, users of the DB Rad+ app who are committed to sustainable mobility can receive rewards in the form of vouchers for kurts Toolbox. This collaboration combines two forward-looking concepts: environmentally friendly travelling by bike and flexible access to professional tools. Cyclists can now convert their kilometres collected with the DB Rad+ app into practical tool rentals. This not only promotes the use of bicycles in urban areas, but also supports DIY enthusiasts and professionals with their projects.
