What inspired you to start the company?
About three years ago, I started to hear feedback from expatriates about how difficult it is to find furnished apartments here in Switzerland. So we had an idea to rent furniture to make it easier for people to move in. We offer a wide variety of items to choose from and we can put a custom package together. The company is based in Germany, where we also offer the same service.
What can you rent?
We deliver everything required to complete your interior, including bedding, electrical appliances, and kitchen equipment. We even recently started renting kitchens.
What is the weirdest thing you have rented out?
A Canadian family had loaded their dog crate into the container at home and wanted to rent one for the transition period.
Who are your main customers?
Our main customers are expats and other people who come to Switzerland on a temporary basis.
Where are your customers from?
They mainly come from North America, Europe and Australia. However, the number of customers from Asia, especially India, is increasing.
What are the benefits of renting furniture?
Renting furniture means you avoid the hassle and expense of moving a complete household on a regular basis. For people who are relocating to a different country, it makes good economic sense.
How does it work?
It’s very simple. For rental furniture you can browse our website - www.FurnitureLeasing.de - and send us the items you like best. Within a few hours we will send you a quote and process your order as soon as you give us the go-ahead. Our staff take care of everything including delivery, assembly, and installation.
If I contact your company, can I speak English with your staff?
Yes, you can either call us at +49 (0)69 4609 9809 or send us an email in English.
