Don’t buy it, instead rent it…
You wish to enjoy a smart lifestyle with the latest designer wear for the party and stylish furniture for your flat. But your cash flow does not allow you buy the products you covet. Or you may not wish to buy new furniture or appliances since you shift from one city to another frequently. Or you may need an item just for a limited period of time.
Irrespective of the reason, you now have an option to take the stuff on rent and that too at affordable rates. Thus, the renting websites are bridging the gap between aspirations and purchasing power of India’s millennial generation! And branded or designer products are guaranteed as 100% authentic!
Apparel, bags, furniture on low rent in India…
The most popular products being rented are branded women’s designer wear and handbags. Apparel in demand is western wear and Indian wear for weddings, parties and weekend outings. Such items may be charged rent at a fraction of the cost based on the brand and whether the product is new or has been used a few times. Free delivery is made to your doorstep within a few hours and you may be allowed to keep the item for 3 days after which collection will be made from your place.
Whereas clothes and bags are rented for a few days, furniture and appliances taken on rent for longer periods like 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. The rental companies offer furniture packages for bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms but is possible to even rent a single piece of furniture like a bed or sofa set. Renting furniture and appliances is definitely the right option because these items depreciate in value over time and purchasing them outright does not make good financial sense.
Before being supplied against every new order, garments are dry-cleaned, whereas furniture is refurbished and wood/fabric is deep-cleaned. Fashion rental startups source goods from online fashion stores as well as preowned producats from individuals. Furniture rental companies procure new furniture from local manufacturers to begin with.
