Most properties in Adelaide are rented unfurnished. In some cases this means there is no fridge or washing machine. Renting furniture can be a good short term solution before your own furniture shipment arrives or an easy option for those not bringing furniture, who do not want the costs of buying it new. You can rent individual items of furniture as required (such as a bed or TV) or you can rent a 2,4, or 6 person furniture package that will include everything you need in one go.
Some companies offer a a set up service which means they will assist at the time of delivery and ensure everything is set up for youand neatly stacked away. If you are ordering bedding this will be placed on the beds. This is good if you require everything ready prior to your arrival in Australia. The longer you rent for the cheaper the weekly price becomes. You will usually need to pay a months rental in advance, a security deposit refundable on return and will be charged a delivery fee.A relocation consultant can assist you with this and pick suitable furniture items out for you.
Tip! You may prefer to buy your own towels and sheets to put your stamp on your new home.
