If you’re travelling to Singapore for work, and need to spend a few months to a year there, renting out an apartment is a must, but furnished apartments are usually more expensive, and tend to limit your options quite considerable. Plus, good apartments are very hard to find. However, there’s one more thing you can do.
Looking For An Unfurnished Apartment?
If you opt for an unfurnished apartment, you can actually furnish it to fit your taste, without having to go and buy the furniture you need. There are a number of companies in Singapore now that offer furniture for rent and you can easily find premade sets for all rooms to fit your design sensibilities. However, finding the best rental service can be tricky. Quite a few landlords also offer furniture for rent but they might not be the best choice when it comes to high quality furniture.
Ideally, you should look for a company that offers high quality furniture and décor, and conducts regular maintenance and servicing on it all. That helps you reduce the chances of fines and penalties in case something gets damaged or stained because the company would be servicing everything itself, and keeping everything in good shape. Do ask for customer testimonials and references though.
Special Event Furniture Rentals?
Another thing you should look for is whether the company offers special event furniture rental. Singapore is a lively place and even if you’re going there for work, you will throw a small party or host a get together with friends at some point in time. That’s where special event furniture really comes in handy. Since you’re already a rental customer, you might get a discount deal for the event furniture rental.
Another thing you should look for is rental insurance. If a company is offering rental insurance on their furniture, it’s a good bet that they’ll be reliable and you’ll save a bundle on penalties later on when you return their stuff. The best services give discounts and deals if you are furnishing your entire house. Make sure you ask for that, as well as the payment terms.
What Are you Looking For?
Finding good furniture for rent isn’t really that hard but finding a good rental service is. Make sure you put together a list of options before finalizing one, and make sure you read the fine print on the contract before you sign. The best rental companies will walk you through the whole process, as well as the entire lease contract and costs involved, step by step, if you ask them to. If they’ve got good customer service and a good sales team, chances are, they’ll be reliable and will be a good choice for the long run.
