Setting up home in a new country can be overwhelming. Where should you live? What type of house? Should you buy or rent? Which schools should the kids go to? Luckily there is at least one aspect of your move that can be relatively hassle-free – furnishing your home.
It isn’t uncommon for expats to rent furniture in Singapore. In fact, companies like Lian Huat Furniture Rental specialise in this kind of thing. You can order everything you want at the click of a mouse and not leave your air-conditioned, serviced apartment. Their extensive online catalogue allows you choose pieces that are a perfect match for your living room, bedroom, dining and study – as well as your monthly budget. You can also get appliances, linen, cutlery and crockery. And should you want something customised, all you have to do is chat with one of their leasing consultants.
Come to think of it, with short terms leases and most houses unfurnished, renting furniture is the sensible option. When you rent your furniture, you don’t have to wait weeks for your shipping container to arrive; you spend less time in that serviced apartment and can actually move into your new home and get settled. Also, you won’t be spending a bundle upfront on quality furniture and appliances.
Once your order is confirmed, Lian Huat Furniture Rental will deliver it in three to seven days and set it up for you. If you’re moving houses within Singapore, you can get a whole new look for your new home and you won’t have to think twice about it when you move again. Throughout your lease period, they will service, repair or replace all items that have undergone normal wear and tear at no extra charge. And if you’ve fallen in love with that couch you snuggled on during rainy afternoons or that dining table that the family gathers around each night, you have the option to purchase the furniture as part of their buy back scheme.
Sounds easy-peasy right? And to make the deal even sweeter, Lian Huat Furniture Rental is throwing in a 10 percent discount* on purchases made online from March 1 to April 30 for all Expat Living readers.
