You know how it is – when you need help moving, your friends scatter. Who wants to spend a free day lugging heavy furniture and risking injury? This is one reason why it’s becoming more sensible for the average young person to rent their furniture, while they’re still on the journey of finding themselves and have yet to plant permanent roots.
The Millennial Factor
It’s just not practical to spend hundreds of dollars on an apartment that will essentially be temporary. In fact, millennials typically move a dozen times before the option of buying a home becomes feasible. Men and women between the ages of 18-35 typically change apartments every year, often in big cities. This is why newish furniture has been so often disposed of, prematurely lost to landfills to the dismay of Earth-friendly activists. Thankfully, a growing number of modern tenants are relying on on-demand services that forgo the burden of ownership. They’ve learned that they can rent whatever they need for a monthly payment, with the option to buy at the end of the lease.
Local is Better
By working with furniture makers and retailers that are local to the consumer, special deals can be offered that are practical and appealing. Customized packages are designed to meet assorted needs. An entire home can be filled with hand-picked furniture. Choosing an individual piece to satisfy a lone necessity is also an option. The process is both easy and convenient. Not only are the rentals delivered, they are assembled onsite. The rentee never need lift a finger. Plus, the source of the furniture is nearby, ensuring that unforeseen issues are easily remedied.
The Alternative Advantage
Of course, it’s not just young people who can benefit from these programs. Those with ‘iffy’ credit can take advantage of payment plans that are customized to be within their budget. After all, so many of our tangible “American Dream” components are not actually owned outright by most of us. From sports gear and musical instruments to cars and homes, renting and leasing have long been common. Now, we can use the advantage of similar short-term commitments to make furnishing our homes as painless and easy as can be.
