Generally speaking, if you live in the areas shown below, you are considered a "surrounding area".
You can become a member if you live outside of this area, however a major requirement is that you are able
to return the tools on time. If members repeatedly returning tools late, we reserve the right to revoke their membership.
Proof of Concession: To obtain a Concession membership a valid Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card, Veterans Card, Full Time Student Card, Seniors Card and Victorian Carer Card must be presented before borrowing to receive the discount. Valid interstate or overseas equivalents are also accepted. You may join and pay online and then present your card in person before you first borrow tools.
Household Discount: Each member of the household must sign a waiver and join as an individual member with their own membership number; however, all members must provide evidence of residing at the same address and join at the same time to get the discount. Household Discount applies to each members of the household. Household Discount does not apply to Passionate, Totes Passionate, or Three Year General memberships.
On-Time Discount: From 13 January 2016 BTL offers a $10 discount to all our members who renew on time. To take advantage of this discount you must renew before your previous membership expires (or on the day it expires). You will get a another full year from the date your previous membership was set to expire – so even if you renew super early it will not affect future expiry/renewal dates.
