Gaming in the School Holidays

The school holidays can be a challenging time for both kids and parents. Once the novelty wears off, you’ll soon start to hear the familiar “mum I’m bored!” and need to start thinking up some activities to keep your kids busy until they go back to school.
Family days out are a great activity during the holidays of course, but it’s equally important to plan for downtime and give the kids something to do on their own that will give you some much-needed space to re-energise.
Console games on systems like the Xbox and PS4 are one option that is universally loved by kids of all ages. What makes these gaming systems so great for families is that there’s a huge selection of games available to suit age ranges from preschool to teenager, and you can either choose games that are played alone or team games that the whole family can enjoy together.
Why Xbox Hire Makes Sense in the School Holidays
Many parents don’t like their children to spend a lot of their time gaming, especially during the school year when they’d prefer them to spend that time on homework or other activities like reading.
In the holidays when everything feels a little more relaxed, it’s nice to have another option for a rainy day or when you just need a bit of mindless entertainment. Xbox or PS4 hire is a way to let your kids enjoy gaming without the expense of buying a console and the temptation of having it in the house every day.
Gaming for Family Fun
Most parents will see the appeal of something that will get their kids out of their hair for a while, but not everyone realizes that console games on systems like the Xbox and PS4 can also be a great way for families to stay active and have fun together.
The Xbox One Kinect allows you to control games through your movement and voice, bringing a whole new dimension to gaming – it’s no longer a sedentary activity sitting on the couch.
Dance and sport games are great fun for kids and adults of all ages and make a great way to get some exercise in and enjoy playing together as a family at the same time.
The PS4 also has the option of a virtual reality headset, turning games into an interactive experience that will surprise and thrill everyone from kids to grandparents.
School Holiday Gaming for All
You can hire a PS4 or Xbox One for the whole school holidays (stock permitting) – the choice is yours. You also get controllers, games, and everything you need to get started right away, all for a low weekly rental price. When school is back in session, you can simply return the equipment and resume your normal school-time family routine – so what are you waiting for?

Spring into Fitness

A fun and easy way to get your spring fitness regimen started is to enjoy fitness in the comfort of your own home. This gym alternative is more convenient as you can designate your own space for exercise rand have all of the equipment there ready when you are. It can be expensive to purchase equipment outright, but exercise equipment hire is an excellent option you can look into. You can rent it by the week and the company will deliver it, set it up, and take it away again once you're finished with it. There are a variety of equipment options to choose from. What equipment you hire all depends on what you want to accomplish with your spring fitness.
  • Cross Trainer. One of the popular options you can rent is a cross trainer. This is popular because it gives you the same results you would get if you went jogging but it is gentler on your joints. If you have knee problems or if you're overweight, this equipment will give you a low impact total body workout. It is also eco-friendly, as it uses very little electricity to operate.
  • Exercise Bike. If you're a fan of biking but not a fan of the ever-changing weather, an exercise bike can solve your problems. You'll get to exercise in the comfort of your own home, with less wear on your joints.
  • Rowing Machine. A rowing machine is impact-free. This is an excellent calorie burning exercise option. You'll exercise large groups of muscles all over your body in one convenient machine. This machine is suited for building your core strength and losing weight.
  • Treadmill. If you want to work on your cardio training, try using a treadmill. You can set it so it simulates running uphill for a harder workout, or downhill. You can also work on your speed and burn calories when you use it.
If you want to start your spring fitness regimen off right, start by renting top-notch equipment. Once it's in your home, you'll be even more motivated to use it on a daily basis because it's convenient. If you would like to know more about the equipment you can hire, or if you want to jump-start your spring fitness regimen, contact us. We have friendly and professional staff that are more than happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

Winter is coming

You are pulled from your favourite dream by the cranky sounding alarm whose sole purpose in life is to ruin your day before it even begins. Fumbling around for the snooze button, you realise it's stuck again. Why do we torture ourselves like this?

A yawn escapes from your mouth and the chilly air makes you sink further into your toasty doona. But, the sheer guilt of that deadline compels you to rise. You swing your legs around and let muscle memory guide you to your comfy fuzzy slippers – only to discover that the cat has batted them under the bed again. Grumbling, you touch your toes to the cold floor and force yourself up.

Forgot to do laundry again last night, which means, the only clean sweater is that horrid one Granny knit for Christmas – the one that makes the winners of "Ugly Sweater" contests look like haute couture. The few seconds between pulling off your pajama top and hurling yourself into that sweater are agonising. You're one of those people who would rather swelter in the sun than be a little cold, and frankly, goose pimples kind of creep you out.
You reminisce about that last time at the beach, and the warming rays of sunshine. It seems like a world away. You think you can see your breath but you're not quite sure.

The bottoms of your feet are finally used to the cold...because they are numb. It will take your heaviest socks to save them, but they make your shoes feel tight.

One step at a time.

When you open your bedroom door to make the frigid trek to the bathroom, your heart drops a little. You remember that the hallway and the hallway floor are even chillier than your room because you have a well ventilated rental.

You are the poster child for "#firstworldproblems" but right now, it doesn't matter because you don't like feeling cold.

If only you had listened to Granny about hiring that sleek looking gas heater from Home Appliance Rentals instead of scrutinising the colour and design issues with the sweater. You would have been able to wake up, turn it on, and by the time you crawled out from the duvet, your room temperature would have been mild and pleasant. This morning would have started off much better.

You might have even hired a heater for that hallway.

Instead, you vow for the third time this week that you will never again rent a place without reverse aircon, which incidentally, is also available from Home Appliance Rentals.

Just saying.

Use Fridge Hire Services to Make Your Holidays Effortless

Planning food requirements for the holidays and for Christmas can be tricky.  Cooking ahead helps but then you need extra space in the fridge to keep food fresh for guests. You may struggle to keep foods cool when you need the space for refrigerating beverages.  Tough choice!

If every holiday you wish you had another fridge, but the rest of the time you're just fine, a refrigerator rental might just solve all your problems.

Why Should You Hire a Fridge for Your Next Party?

If you're having a big party, will have house guests for several weeks, or just want more room in the kitchen than you currently have, refrigerator rentals give you extra space without the cost of buying another appliance that you only need some of the time.

All of our fridges are ready to go. You plug it in, let it cool down, store it, and then return it when you're done. Nothing could be simpler.

The next time you need extra cold storage, hire a refrigerator rather than trying to jam everything into one unit, or spending a fortune on ice to keep your beverages cold.

What Kind of Fridge Can I Hire?

We have several different styles and sizes of fridge available for rental. If you need just a little extra space, our small fridge will probably be plenty; if you need a whole separate storage area, our large fridge might be closer to what you need. We can also work with your budget if you have a specific need.

  • Our small fridge holds between 200 and 290L, and suits 1 to 2 people.
  • Our medium fridge holds between 291 and 390L, and suits 2 to 4 people.
  • Our large fridge holds between 391 and 490L, and suits 3 to 5 people.
All of our fridges are frost free. Specific dimensions can vary; if you have a tight space, let us know and we will see what we have available to make sure that it will fit.

We arrange hires for both short term and long term situations. Give us a call to find out the details, and let us help you find the right hire for your situation. Let us make your next holiday event simple by hiring a fridge and expanding your storage space.
