Office furniture is rented by the piece rather than in packages because the needs of offices vary so much. The minimum may be less than three months for businesses.
It is also possible to rent electronic equipment including TVs, stereos, VCRs.
Short-term rental of two week or a month is often available on certain items such as baby furniture, portable beds, TVs, VCRs and microwave ovens.
Furniture may not be brand new, but it will be “showroom quality.” Once return furniture starts looking worn, it is sent to the company’s “clearance area” to be sold as used furniture.
Companies have different policies about customers buying furniture which they have eased. Some will charge the consumer the residual value of the furniture much as a car lease. Other companies consider the furniture paid for after a period of 26 months.
