Renting home appliances like gas and electric cookers is both convenient and cost effective. You don’t need to pay a huge sum of money before you start using the most modern brand of cooker you want. With a small rental fee, which can be as low as £4, you can rent your cooker and it will be delivered to you the same day. Renting a cooker is also one of the best options for students, young couples, and people who move frequently because of the nature of their work. If you want to know how to rent a cooker and pay weekly, here are some of the steps you should take.
Take some time to search for reputable rental companies in your locality. Google is your friend, when you have to do a local search. A phrase like “Cooker rental in Kent” will bring up the names of companies that offer a dedicated appliance rental to people living in Kent. Check online directories like Yell and Google+ Local to find out what other customers have to say about the company you are planning to rent a cooker from. Also, ask your friends or relatives about the rental companies they have used and will like to recommend. After shortlisting a few companies, move on the next stage.
Choose a Rental Service
Visit the websites of the rental companies you have shortlisted. Look at their policies and rental agreements. What is the minimum amount of time that you will be able to rent the cooker for? Usually most companies in U.K. offer a 12 to 18-month rental period, within which you will be able to use the cooker at the fixed rental fee. Find out if the company offers free servicing and the type of faults that are covered by their service policy.
You should also ask if they have a money-back guarantee if you don’t like the cooker they offer. Some companies may not offer a money back guarantee but they will change the cooker and offer you a different brand that is within the same price range. Similarly, some companies charge a one-time administrative fee while some don’t. Make sure you take time to speak with a company representative so you can access their customer service and response to enquiries. Don’t depend on word-of-mouth alone.
Apply and Pay for Your Cooker
After you have decided on the company that will provide your cooker, call them up and tell them you are ready to apply for a rental cooker. Do this to confirm that they still have the brand of cooker you want and let them give you an assurance that you will receive the cooker immediately after you apply and make payment. At this point, most companies will ask for your credit history and proof of employment and income. This is important because you need to show that you have a source of income to meet up with the monthly payments. After you have filled the online form and paid your first payment, the cooker will be delivered to you.
Those are the simple steps you should take to rent a cooker and pay weekly. You will save a lot of money and you will be able to use the latest brand of cooker at a fairly low fee with free servicing.
