Tips & Advice for Renting Furniture

by on Jan.20, 2011, under Furniture Hire

Are you looking for home furniture hire?  Be sure to use a supplier who specialises in providing full household packages of furniture and accessories.  That way you can choose any combination of items from their inventories, please note though that most suppliers do not supply one off items.

Some companies may even supply basic home packs if you don’t have time to select specific items (these are based on the size of your property).

Be sure to get a quotation for your residential furniture hire before going ahead with your order.  Ensure your quote includes the monthly rental cost, delivery & collection cost as well as a deposit.


Check on the notice required for deliveries as most suppliers will need approximately 7-10 notice for deliveries.  Be sure to choose a supplier who delivers nationwide, however, please note that delivery charges usually depends on the destination.  Once you have agreed to the quote and arranged payment, delivery is set up on a date & time to suit you.  Deliveries and collections are only done on weekdays.  When you are ready for the furniture to be collected simply email or telephone and request a collection.  7 -10 working days notice are usually requested. 

Installation & Collection

When renting furniture you can install it yourself, however it’s best if the company you are renting from do it for you as they have a professional eye for what is aesthetically pleasing.  You do not need to be present in most cases as keys can be collected & returned afterwards.  The installation supervisor will ensure that your furniture is correctly installed, the kitchenware unpacked (and the beds made up if you have rented linens). All packaging from the furniture and accessories will be removed from the property by the delivery team.  On collection the supervisor will pack up the accessories and ensure your furniture is removed quickly and efficiently. The collection process will take around two to three hours depending on the size of property so please allow for this if you are having your own furniture delivered on the same day.

If you required emergency furniture hire and were to compare hiring furniture with staying in a mid priced hotel for a month while you wait for your own furniture to arrive, it would be six times cheaper to hire furniture.  The savings applies for long term relocation furniture rental as well.  A family relocating from the USA for a twelve month period would save as much as 60% when compared to the cost of shipping their furniture. 

Not only is furniture hire a savings, but it’s tax efficient as well.  Value Added Tax on rental charges is recoverable by UK registered companies. In addition, furniture rental payments are fully deductible as a business expense (UK Tax Act Section 74).

So what are you waiting for?  Hiring furniture is the answer to your empty rooms!
