Renting furniture?
« on: June 01, 2008, 10:31:23 am »
We're looking at houses this week but our furniture only arrives mid-July. Does anyone know of somewhere we could rent things like furniture, crockery etc?

We know of Mr Rental for appliances.

Can't you get a fully furnished and equipped place until July?

Have a look at Rentrite.  They were the cheapest and if you are on the North Shore, ask for Charlie.  He goes out of his way to help.  You also get one move free, so if you move to the next place he comes and collects and drops of in the 2nd place. O0

Thanks for that great link MJ

My OH and I will also put it to good use when we get to NZ (as we will be shipping our stuff across).

I've emailed you from the site MJ.

We've just signed a lease and move in on Friday night... hope and pray you'll be able to help us quickly! (I need a begging emoticon :))

I used Rentrite and they were fantastic and by far the cheapest!
 Dave came and fetched the TV & washing machine today and saw I was trying to get my surround sound connected to my LCD TV and was struggling. He started looking to see what was wrong, but we just couldn't figure out what was wrong.  Well....I've just got a call from him, at 8pm, to say he'd been around to a friend and got a diagram for me to get the wireing right!!!! And that was after he'd taken the appliances back! WOW!!!
