Did you know there are two types of furniture rental? There is Rent-To-Rent and Rent-to-own. With Rent-to-rent, most people rent furniture because they have a temporary need and know at some point the furniture will no longer be needed. Staging a home for sale is a great example. Generally there is a less expensive monthly payment option than if you were to buy furniture of the same quality. If you know you’re only going to need furniture for 2-3 years or less, Rent-To-Rent option is an ideal choice.
With Rent-to-own furniture, the rental is primarily a lease/purchase option that targets consumers who are experiencing shortages of available cash and/or credit. The rent-to-own option allows them to pay less initially but depending on the number of payments, the furniture can end up costing more than its original price. If you’re moving into a new home, apartment or office and need furniture and your long term plans are to remain at that location, rent-to-own may be a solution for you. Again, rent-to-own offers lower monthly payments than outright purchase.
If you know that your furniture needs are simply temporary then rent-to-own furniture is not the best way to go. You would be much better off with Rent-to-rent, where you can return the furniture on a specified date. There are many reasons people choose to rent furniture in this way, for example:
- Transfer / Relocation
- Short Term or Temporary Work Assignment
- International Move
- Selling Your Home / Home Staging
- Home Damage / Loss
- Marital Transition
