Don’t be lonely again – Rent a friend for the night

by on Jul.26, 2013, under Business, Companion Service, Meet And Greet Services, Personal

A friend recommended I rent a friend from Dukes of Daisy as I needed an active and adventurous companion to accompany me on a weekend away. Dreading the thought of going away with other friends on my own I decided to give it a go.

I chose Duncan aged 41 as he described himself as active, caring and similar interests to me and the kind of person I would like to spend time with.

I highly recommend Dukes of Daisy as the person Duncan turned out to be was the exact person described to me. There were no hidden agendas, no expectations so I felt relaxed from the outset. He was sociable, polite and the best thing about Duncan is that he really knows how to treat a lady and make her feel special. He was easy to talk to as he is well educated and knowledgeable of world affairs.

The next occasion was a wedding and I needed a partner, I didn’t hesitate to book Duncan again and to my delight he’s a great dancer so lots of fun was had by us.

I rent Duncan from Dukes of Daisy on a regular basis as I have got to know him and feel comfortable and confident with him to partner me to any function.

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!
