Why Rent Furniture?
When on the hunt for furniture, renting your home furnishings is an often-overlooked option for shoppers.
But, there are several advantages to renting furniture that you may not have considered!
No Long-Term Commitments
When renting-to-rent, furniture shoppers will enjoy a degree of freedom that is difficult to find with other furniture options. This is because rent-to-rent furnishings are yours for as long as you want, but you can get rid of them whenever you’re done.
There’s no long-term commitment with rent-to-rent furnishings, so if your furniture needs are temporary or you’d like a variety of furniture choices, rental furnishings could be a great option for you.
When renting your temporary furnishings you can expect some significant savings over purchasing from a furniture retailer.
The average person spends a little under $8,200 when purchasing furnishings for their home, making it unrealistic to do so when you only need the furniture for a short time.
With some rental furniture providers offering furnishings for less than $190 per month, you could save thousands by renting your temporary home furnishings.
Rental Providers do All the Heavy Lifting
Much like furniture retailers, most rental furniture companies offer a delivery service to get your furniture from the store and into your home.
As was mentioned above, you can expect different services to be included in your delivery fee, depending on your provider. These services will always include the delivery of your furniture, but may also add the assembly of your furnishings, the installation of electronics, and the pick up into your fee as well. Be sure to know what all you get with your delivery service to avoid any unwanted surprises (like assembly or pick up fees) later.
Delivery in a Day
When setting up your delivery, you can also ask how soon the rental furniture provider will be able to deliver your furnishings. Often, the rental company will give you their soonest date possible which, depending on the provider, could be as soon as the next day.
Some rental furniture companies offer next day delivery as part of their delivery service, helping shoppers get furniture when they need it.
Furniture rental companies keep their furnishings in top condition to maximize its lifespan and, after deep cleaning each piece, they rent out their furniture to new clients looking to take advantage of the benefits of rental furniture. This process allows the furniture to continue its use longer than purchased furniture, reducing the environmental impact of the furniture.
