Why Buy When You Can Rent: 4 Reasons to Rent Household Items

Whether you’re an expatriate residing in Singapore temporarily, a landlord renting out an apartment, or a home-owner waiting for your new house to be built, renting furniture, household items, and home appliances is something you can consider to furnish your apartment.

Here are four reasons why you should rent furniture, household items, and home appliances instead of buying them, all without sacrificing your budget, comfort, or style.

1. Cost Effective

Contrary to popular belief, renting household items may actually be more cost-effective than buying them. Purchasing big-ticket items like television sets, washing machines, and refrigerators is very taxing on your wallet, especially when you have to make an upfront payment.

By renting furniture, individuals don’t have to immediately fork out a large sum of money to furnish their houses. Yet, they can still obtain the same household items and appliances at a fraction of the original price. This is perfect for individuals who are on a tight budget and wish to keep their expenses to a minimum in the short term.

For greater cost savings, individuals can also choose from the different furniture rental packages, where household items and appliances are hand-picked to suit houses of various sizes.

2. Wide Range of Quality Furniture Available

Another common misconception many people have is that furniture rental stores have a limited range of household items to cater to all their living needs, or that rental furniture is unhygienic and dirty.

Furniture rental stores provide a wide range of modern furniture and household appliances that are chosen to be versatile and practical. Showrooms are typically available for individuals to check out the furniture and their quality in-person. This can help to give ideas to individuals on how the furniture can be paired to suit different budgets, lifestyles, and preferences.

Household rental items and appliances are also checked and cleaned with stringent quality measures each time they are returned back to the store so they are as good as new.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, extra processes like sanitising are also incorporated to ensure the furniture is clean and disinfected.

3. Hassle-free

If you have a hectic lifestyle with limited time, picking and comparing furniture for your house may be the last thing you want to do. Furniture rental stores will have Leasing Consultants that can assist you to pick out the household items that you need, so you can acquire everything in a fuss-free way.

Renting your household items also means that you don’t have to worry about packing or selling all your furniture when you relocate, so you have time for other more important things in life.

No time to head down to the rental store? Why not rent your household items and appliances online? There are various types of packages for you to choose from, such as 1-bedroom to 3-bedroom package deals, consisting of everything you’d need for your apartment – all without the hassle of selecting individual items to furnish your home.

4. Flexible Leasing Periods

If you’re uncertain about your future living plans, buying new furniture for your home may not be the most financially-savvy decision.

Renting your household items means you can choose different leasing periods to suit your own needs. Whether you’re waiting for your new house to be built, or an expatriate residing in Singapore temporarily, you have the luxury of extending your furniture leasing period if your relocation plans are disrupted, especially during this current COVID-19 situation when there is a lot of uncertainty.
