April 4th is right around the corner! We are excited to launch this new program and make a positive impact in not only SEAC’s south east area but in the Greater Rochester Area!
In preparation for the big opening, we’ve launched our Tool Shed website! We are currently hard at work getting all the our current donations tested, cleaned, and entered into our system, meaning you can see our inventory online!
Tool Shed Membership Pre-Registration
You can now create an account on our Tool Shed database! Please note that you will not be charged the membership fee.
Once the Tool Shed opens to the public, when you come in for the first time you will be required to present the following:
- Two proofs of residency in the Greater Rochester Area, such as a utility or phone bill or paystub.
- A debit/credit card to have on file (this is in the case of late fees or tools being damaged by the renter). You can also add this to your account before coming to the Tool Shed.
- Fill out the Lending Agreement and Indemnification and Waiver.
Once we have the documentation, you will be asked which membership level you wish to enroll in and will be charged the appropriate amount for the year. The Tool Shed has three levels to choose from:
Tinkerer Level — $25 per year and you can rent five tools at a time*
Builder Level — $50 per year and you can rent 25 tools at a time*
Contractor Level — $100 per year, two users, and you can rent 50 tools at a time*
Once paid in full, you will be given your membership card.
*Rented tools must be returned within 5 days. After that, a $1 fee per day will be incurred. Any tool not returned after 30 days will result in the renter being charged for the value of a new replacement tool (market value).
