- Rental Furniture You can rent individual items of furniture or take a a 2,4, or 6 person furniture package that will include everything you need in one go. Your weekly price for the retal decreases according to the length of the hire time. You will usually need to pay a months rental in advance, a security deposit refundable on return and will be charged a delivery fee. Go to our rental furniture section for more info.
