Renting Your Television: Why it Makes Sense

These days most of us are on a budget, and we’re trying to find ways to make savings where we can. However, with lifestyles are driven by technology we seem to be constantly spending our hard earned cash on one expensive gadget after another. Technology moves so quickly that as soon as we get used to using the latest model, a newer and more advanced version is released, which of course, we instantly want! It’s impossible to keep up with the digital trends without breaking the bank... or is it?

Accommodating the whole family

Gone are the days when the whole family was happy to sit and watch the same show on a poor-quality screen. Modern technology has enabled all of us to expect preferences delivered on demand, and in practically every room. Catering for everyone is expensive, especially as TV technology is advancing so fast. This is why it makes sense to rent rather than buy, whether it’s one television you want or one for each member of the family.

TV technology without the price tag

The latest televisions aren’t just something you watch; they’re smart devices that you can actually interact with. These days it just won’t do unless your TV has an LED, HD-quality screen with wireless capability and a web browser built in. We’ve come to take On Demand streaming services for granted, and expect to watch YouTube videos on our televisions, too; and if possible, we want our movies in 3D. It’s no wonder all of this comes with a heavy price tag.

At Home Appliance Rentals, however, it doesn’t have to. You can rent the latest LED smart television for six months, enjoying all the viewing and gaming features you need. Personalise it with apps from the app store, and even log into your Facebook and Twitter accounts on your TV between your favourite shows. Renting allows you to access the latest technology without the initial cash outlay; after all, who knows how advanced televisions will have become by this time next year?

Convenient household appliance hire

When you rent a television from Home Appliance Rentals, you won’t have to worry about transportation, installation, or any of the annoying procedures you have to go through before you can sit down and watch your television. We will deliver, install and connect your television for you, leaving you to get on with the important business of enjoying it! And in the unlikely event of a fault developing during your rental period, your television will be repaired or replaced free of charge at no extra cost. You can also return it at any time once your initial rental period is up, saving you the trouble of trying to sell or dispose of technology you no longer need, or for convenience if you move property.

Television rental makes sense in today’s climate more than ever before; and as we progress through the digital age, it is an option more and more of us are likely to choose.

Corporate TV Rentals for the Rio Olympics

Every four years we witness an event that tests the limit of human endurance. One that brings out the fighting spirit of participants and spectators alike.

As the losers fall by the wayside, and the frontrunners ready themselves for the final battle, we experience a range of emotions—joy, sorrow, horror, amazement, bewilderment.

And then it’s all over for another four years, and we shake our heads at the way the US elects their president.

Fortunately, the Olympic Games is also run every four years to give us a bit of a reprieve. For 16 days (or three months if the golf events are being telecast) you can get away from presidential candidates droning on for hours, and listen to the Australian Olympic commentators for hours instead.

This year the Games are being held in Rio de Janeiro, which is somewhere in Brazil. Rio (as it’s affectionately known by people who keep spelling “Janeiro” wrong) is famous for its wild five-day celebration known as Carnival. Fortunately for everyone involved, Brazil is also the world’s largest producer of coffee.

Unfortunately, Brazil is in a completely different time zone to Australia—a major oversight by the IOC. That means that during the week your employees may well be staying awake all night to watch the events. And that’s going to have a major impact on your business’ productivity (not to mention its coffee supplies).

The good news is that Home Appliance Rentals has the perfect solution. Simply hire a large-screen TV, set it up in the office, and let your employees watch all the replays while they work. (Of course there are going to be replays.)

With their corporate short-term rental packages, you can hire TVs and other items for as long as you need them—whether it’s a weekend, a week, or even longer. That means you can return the TV as soon as the Games are over and avoid a problem even worse than sleep deprivation—daytime television.

And what if people want to use the room the TV’s in for something trivial such as a board meeting? Well, Home Appliance Rentals also have TV stands with wheels so you can move it just about anywhere.

So don’t risk your office becoming a scene from The Walking Dead. Get in touch with Home Appliance Rentals, and take advantage of their corporate short-term rental packages to bring the Games to your office.

Corporate Event Organisation

It's a lot of work to organise corporate events including AGMs, conferences and other large meetings. This work often falls on just a few people within the company. It makes sense to make the job as easy as possible by hiring the equipment from a specialised hire firm. Not only does this usually give you a more affordable price for the event hire, it also means that you have a single point of contact, which makes the job of the event organiser much easier during a busy time.
Here are some of the items you might need for the next meeting you are planning. 


 Projectors are useful if many of the presentations include slides and/or images to support the speeches. Professional projectors give sharper picture quality, and also tend to be more reliable. Lower quality projectors can overheat if they are used for any length of time, so if you don't have a high-quality projector within the company, then it can be a good idea to hire one.

Large screens 

Once you have a projector organised it's important to have large clean screens so that a presentation can be seen clearly from anywhere in the room. This allows the attendees to really focus on the message.

TV screens 

If you are video conferencing with other people during the meeting, or including video clips of people who can't be in the room, it can be useful to have a large screen TV to clearly show the clips.

Video equipment 

If you need to record a meeting for later viewing, or for editing and putting online, then it's a good idea to use a professional level video camera so that the image appears clear and audio is easy to listen to on any device it might later be played upon.

AV equipment 

No matter how powerful the message, if the people at the back of the room can't hear it, then they'll soon lose interest. Having subtle and easy-to-use microphones and speakers allows everyone in the room to engage with the meeting presentation and not become distracted by poor sound quality.

Hire Package Deals

If you need to get more than one item, then it makes sense to head to a supplier that offers a package deal. Home Appliance Rentals offers great package prices on any combination of these items for corporate customers, so if you are looking to hire some equipment for your next event call them on 1300 800 388 .

Get Fit with Fitness Equipment Rental

We know you have a long list of great reasons for not tackling your New Year’s resolution to get fit. Yet you’re also probably aware of how important a regular routine of physical activity is for your health and well-being.

Plenty of scientific research studies have demonstrated how exercise strengthens the muscles of both your body and mind. It upgrades your quality of living and energy levels, as well as adds years to your life span.

We can help you get past all of your excuses, jump up and race into a regular exercise plan.

Let’s start by addressing some problems that stand in your way. How many of these pretexts strike a chord with you?

  • There’s no time in your busy lifestyle for exercise.
  • Once the kiddies are home from school or child care, there’s no one else around to care for them.
  • You don’t have the funds to afford a membership at a local fitness club.
  • Traveling to the gym facilities is inconvenient, tiring and time-consuming.

Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that fitness equipment rental can help resolve all these issues!


When it comes to working out, renting home exercise equipment provides the ultimate in convenience. All you need to do is walk down your hallway, mount yourself on the treadmill or bike or elliptical (or your preferred machine) and start moving your limbs! With no precious time or energy wasted in transit, you’ll be able to invest all of your power into exercise.


Gym equipment hire allows you to make of the most of your free time. Instead of slouching on the couch in front of the telly, set up your fitness equipment in the study and enjoy your favorite programs while working out. Yet don’t leave exercise simply to chance - or it’s bound to never happen. Examine your calendar and figure out what time slots work best, and then pencil your exercise routine into your schedule. Treat physical fitness with the same commitment as any other important meeting or task.


If the best time for exercise falls out when you’re home with the kiddies, that’s no excuse! Take turns babysitting with your partner, or call upon family and friends to lend a caring hand. Perhaps you can even set up a weekly rotation plan with a neighbor who’s also interested in staying healthy and getting in shape? You owe it to yourself to stay in shape and feel good!


With fitness equipment rental, economical short-term plans are available so you can give it a trial run, and cost effective long-term plans are offered once you’re devoted to taking care of yourself. Discount package deals allow you to stock your home affordably with a diverse range of gym equipment.

Remember, the benefits of a regular fitness routine are too enormous to hide behind excuses. Bringing exercise and gym equipment into your home grants you an easy, ideal way to take your first step towards better health.

Moving in, moving on

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they need to start paying hundreds of dollars a week to a complete stranger to get out of eating dinner at four thirty in the afternoon.

Of course, that’s not the only reason people to choose to move out of their parents’ place. But I’m pretty sure it’s in the top ten, along with complaints about your music (“It’s just noise!”) and continually asking your friends if they’d like to see your baby pictures.

And so comes the day when you find yourself standing in an empty apartment (you don’t own much), marvelling at how much space there is. You are finally the master of your own domain (but certainly not your finances), and can do whatever you want as long as it doesn’t leave a mark on the wall or a chalk outline on the carpet.

Sitting on an upturned milk crate (the closest thing you have to furniture other than your bed), you think of all the things you can do now that you live on your own:

Invite friends over without the risk of being embarrassed by your parents. (Your Facebook profile is another story).

Play your music as loud as you like (or rather as loud as your earbuds can handle—your parents didn’t let you take their stereo).

Eat dinner as late as you like.

At the thought of dinner you notice the empty space where a fridge should be. Your parents didn’t let you take that either, or the television. You start listing the things you’ll need to buy:

Fridge—the leftover takeaway has to be stored somewhere

Television—you don’t watch much TV these days (if you see another game show you’ll scream), but without one your Xbox 360 is pretty much useless

Washing machine—the last thing you need are complete strangers seeing your underwear.

Unfortunately, having just paid a bond and two weeks’ rent in advance means you’re pretty much broke. And even if you could afford to buy them, you’d then have to pay to have them all delivered.

Luckily for you, Home Appliance Rentals has created a Home Starter Pack that will have you eating reheated leftovers while watching TV in no time. For just $41.54 a week you get:

a fridge

a washing machine

a 66cm LED TV.

And what makes it even better is they’ll not only deliver it all, they’ll install it all as well. Just tell them where you want things to go, and they’ll get everything working before they leave. (Okay, they might not hook up your Xbox for you. But you can handle that, right?)

Oh, and if you want to upgrade that milk crate to something you can share with friends (or at least fall asleep on), you can hire lounge suites and other furniture from them as well. How cool is that?

So get in touch with Home Appliance Rentals today, get the stuff you need, and start enjoying your independence. But don’t forget that despite the weird eating times, your parents are still pretty awesome and you should visit them occasionally.

Probably Sunday. That’s when they cook a roast, isn’t it?

Thursday, October 30, 2014


So here we are on the last day of October. And you know what that means, don’t you? That’s right—someone you know will be bragging about how they’ve already finished their Christmas shopping.

Yep, despite the fact it’s still eight weeks away, they managed to find the perfect gift for everyone they know. 

So how did they do it? Well, I have a few ideas:

A. They don’t actually have any friends (which, considering how they’re behaving right now, isn’t surprising).

B. Their friends and family have such poor taste they’ll gladly accept anything they’re given—including Instant Lottery tickets.

C. They‘re one of those annoying people who can actually figure out what everyone wants.

If the answer turns out to be option C, then you’ll be glad to know it’s Halloween and you have an excuse to plunge a knife into something.

Trivial fact: This is actually the reason we have Jack-O-Lanterns at Halloween. (They were originally called Jerk-O-Lanterns.)

Mind you, they may be just as clever and thoughtful with their trick-or-treating. So it’s worth dressing up as your favourite horror character (zombie, grim reaper, telemarketer) to see what you can get out of them. 

And if you don’t get what you want, just get into character and slash/stomp/bore their garden to death on the way out.

Fortunately you don’t have to worry about choosing the perfect gift for your friends and family. Simply rent a TV, home theatre system and gaming console from Home Appliance Rentals and your problems will be solved. They still won’t like the gifts you gave them, but you should be able to drown out the noise of them banging on your door and sending abusive text messages.

But you should probably call them as soon as you can. After all, those pumpkins are going to run out long before the bragging does.

Fitness Freak

Summer’s here at last (in fact I think it got here a few weeks early), and it’s time to go to the beach, ride a bike and whatever else people do in Coca-Cola commercials.
Unfortunately, when you start peeling off the layers that kept you warm all winter you may find you’ve developed a few layers yourself.

Of course, the obvious solution (other than hiding in the bathroom and eating nothing but low-fat Colgate for three months) is to head to the nearest gym and work them off. But the last thing you want to deal with is a bunch of sweaty people moaning and groaning for an hour. (And that’s just the staff at the front counter.)

Luckily you don’t have to. Thanks to Home Appliance Rentals you can have fitness equipment delivered and set up in your own home that you can use whenever you want. No driving across town, no waiting around for equipment, and no mirrors!

And forget about the machine where you put the belt around your waist and get shaken so violently you throw up. Home Appliance Rentals can deliver equipment that’s far more effective, such as:

the Treadmill. Step onto the conveyer belt, set the speed, and start running. Pretend you’re competing in a marathon (by throwing bottles of water over your head), or just run to the rhythm of your favourite music. Just make sure you don’t add any slow songs to your playlist, or you could find yourself suddenly being catapulted across the room.

the Cross Trainer. Grab onto the handles, step onto the pedals, and before you know it you’ll be stuck. But if you stick at it, you’ll soon be burning off all those calories in no time. (It’s also a great way to perfect your impression of a robot.)

the Exercise Bike. Remember the thrill of riding a bike when you were a kid—wind in your hair, bugs in your teeth and the neighbour’s dog chasing you? Well, you won’t get any of that with an exercise bike (unless you crank up the air-conditioner). But you can ride for an hour without looking like a human bug zapper and lose weight.

the Rower. If you’ve always wanted to row but couldn’t afford to go to a private school, then this is the one for you. Feel ever muscle in your body screaming out in pain without having to worry about accidentally drowning (except possibly in your own sweat).

Before you know it you’ll be burning off those extra layers, not to mention the clothes you’ve been wearing while you do it. (Washing powders are good, but they can’t perform miracles.)
Now you can stroll along the beach with confidence, walk up to the hottest girl/guy there, and whisper the words you’ve wanted to say for the past month.
“Got any toothpaste?”
