As the cost of living crisis deepens, consumers are looking for ways to save money, source cheap alternatives and free up cash where they can. With people struggling with the soaring cost of living being forced to cut back on food and limit car journeys to save money, replacing home appliances is sadly financially prohibitive for some at present.

When laundry and kitchen appliances fail it can be a hugely expensive occurrence with notable logistical complications in sourcing an engineer to fix faulty appliances, whether within our outside of a warranty period. Furthermore, choosing to buy cheap replacement appliances can be a false economy given poor energy and water efficiency ratings as well as a higher component failure potential.

However, there are options available that give access to energy efficient washing machines, tumble dryers and kitchen appliances without costly upfront payments and with the peace of mind afforded by a reliable service support. Rental enables consumers to pay weekly or monthly for their home appliances and to benefit from the peace of mind afforded by an inclusive service support. By renting, you make a more sustainable and affordable lifestyle choice than purchase. Why waste money on buying cheap laundry equipment, TVs, ovens, fridges or freezers when you can pay weekly or monthly for high quality home appliances with a same or next day service response when needed? Don’t buy cheap when you may need to buy twice.
