It is better to rent the office furniture, if you are going to open a new business or you want to add furniture to your ongoing existing business, rather than buying it. Renting of office furniture is easy as by doing few steps you can have furniture delivered to your doorstep. Some of the several tips that will guide you in renting the office furniture are in the following article.
The first thing that you have to do is to decide the type of office furniture you need. You need to jot down the things you need in the form of a list that includes chairs, tables, sofas, etc. The list should be in a comprehensible form and should be unambiguous to avoid any confusion. If necessary, you can also measure the available space in your office with the furniture to be ordered. It ensures that you get the right size of furniture for your office.
Second thing is to look for a shop in your area which rents furniture for the business purposes. If you cannot find any rental shop in your area, you have to do a little research to find rental shop in other nearby locations. Just make sure that the location is not too far from your office, as a difficulty arises in the case of delivery of the furniture, incase someday you send the furniture back.
After you have found the rental shop, the third and the most important thing to consider is the renting cost. You should finalize the deal only if the renting cost is at the rate, which you can afford. Many times renting companies charge much more for short-term (30 days) rentals than long term rentals. If you can figure out how to use the rented furniture for longer than a month you can save a great deal of money.
Fourth thing is to select the furniture and set the time for delivery. Only that furniture should be selected which you have noted down in your list. Don’t make any unnecessary selection of the furniture under pressure, as it will only increase your rental cost. Also, make sure that the time which you have selected for the delivery is such at which you are present in the office. As it will ensure that all the furniture is delivered at the office properly without any damage done to the property.
Lastly, proper inspection should be done of the furniture in front of the delivery man to ensure that no damaged furniture is delivered to the office. If you find any damaged property or furniture, complaint should be made about the same to the person authorized in this behalf and that damaged property should be sent back with the delivery man. In case the furniture and all the other properties are fit and fine to your inspection then only after being satisfied, you can start to design the paperwork.
All these above tips will ensure that proper procedure is followed to rent the appropriate furniture.
