What is furniture rental? Furniture Rental is offered by a range of different furniture hire companies and allows an individual or business to hire furniture for a huge range of uses. Furniture rental is popular with offices, schools and universities, clubs, pubs and bars and even exhibition and party organisers. Why should I use furniture rental? Furniture rental allows you to hire furniture for as long as you need, without the need to buy that furniture new. If you have a one off event you need to organise, or need extra desks or chairs for a month or so, rather than buying new furniture, furniture rental offers you the opportunity to rent that furniture instead, at a fraction of the cost. What's more, you can simply return the furniture when you are finished with it, and don't need to find spaces to store the furniture, or to try selling it. As the recession started to really bite, and many businesses struggled to survive, the number of desks and bits of office furniture that were discarded was massive. As businesses have started again, many have turned to furniture hire, as they can borrow as many desks and chairs as they need, without the huge outlay for new furniture. If they need to downscale again, they can simply return the furniture, saving money in the process. Who can take advantage of furniture rental? There are a number of businesses and individuals who can take advantage of furniture rental. These include office based businesses, who can borrow desks, chairs, office furniture, meeting tables and white boards as and when they need them. They are particularly useful for scalable sales businesses, which may hire lot's of staff during a busy season, only to scale back when they are less busy. Furniture Hire can be scaled back with the staff. Other businesses include clubs, bars and coffee shops, who can hire furniture for the summer months to create extra seating and tables outside, increasing your capacity and because you can send back the furniture for the winter months, you only pay for it when you have it, and don’t need storage space when it's cold outside and not used. Even wedding organisers can use furniture hire, bringing in the tables, chairs and linen as and when it's needed, without the huge outlay required to buy all the equipment in the first place. As you will only pay to borrow the equipment when there is a wedding on, you'll only pay when you earn.
