Most properties in Tasmania are rented unfurnished. You will find there is often no fridge or washing machine. Renting furniture, therefore, can be a good short term solution before your own furniture shipment arrives or an easy option for those intending to bring furniture or who do not want the costs of buying it new. You can rent individual items of furniture as required (such as a fridge or bed) or you can rent a furniture package covering a number of people(2 person, 3 person etc) that will include everything you need.
Many companies offer a deluxe service which means that they will assist at the time of delivery to ensure that everything is set up for you. your kitchen will be set up and the linen on your bed. This is particularly good if you require everything ready prior to your arrival in Australia. The longer you intend to rent then the cheaper the weekly price becomes. You will usually need to pay a month's rental in advance, a security deposit refundable on return and you will be charged a delivery fee.
Tip! You may prefer to purchase your own linen to add your own personal touch.
