How often have you bought something only to decide a month or two later that it just doesn’t fit your lifestyle, or the color isn’t right? This is especially difficult situation when the purchase is relatively large like electronics, appliances, or furniture.
One important benefit of furniture and electronic appliance renting is that you can try the product out before really committing to ownership. Want to try the latest flat screen television but are concerned about the clarity or glare in your own home? Rent the unit for a month or so and try it out! This is especially true when considering an appliance technology that is new to you. Things like a flat heating element stove, or an extra large capacity washer and dryer all are good candidates for the try before you buy idea. If you think you may like that large capacity washer and dryer but can’t swing the 1,100 to 1,500 dollars for the pair, getting them from a furniture rental company may be a good alternative.
Furniture rental company services are also a way to try out the latest in furniture designs at a fraction of the costs of a direct purchase. Try color schemes in your home without committing to the direct purchase of that new sofa or bedroom suite until you know the color scheme is right.
The first consideration when renting furniture will probably be price. The reason for this is because most of the rental cost is rental fees and not toward the purchase cost. This is ok however in that the intent, at least from this point of view is to rent the equipment or furniture to see if it fits into your lifestyle and home. If you purchase directly and the color is wrong, or that flat screen television isn’t exactly right, too bad you own it. With furniture renting or try before you buy, if it’s wrong, it’s a simple matter to get an exchange or replacement.
Short term needs are another great reason why furniture rental services should be considered. If moving into a new home soon but don’t want to move your furniture from storage into temporary housing, then into the new home, rental services may be the answer. Or if moving is part of a career move and you find yourself with two homes, a short term rental service can save a lot of expense. Instead of buying two sets of furniture, consider using furniture rentals in the new home until your previous homes furnishings are shipped.
Although furniture rental companies also do sell product, they offer the very best in consumer satisfaction by using the rental services as a try before you buy option. All in all, this can offer a consumer good service at a moderate cost while delivering the products desired almost immediately.
