Your one-stop guide to home appliance rentals
April 26, 2021
Here at Snaffle, we are always looking for ways to simplify things for our customers. We believe renting is the way to go, and as such, have put together this handy guide to share the many benefits of renting with us.
The way in which we are shopping for home appliances is changing. Consumers are increasingly opting for convenient and economical ways of outfitting their homes, offices, and gardens, an attitude which has seen home appliance rentals surge in popularity.
How to pick the right appliance for you
The first step in snaffling your dream appliance is to do your research. There’s no use getting excited about that perfect refrigerator if it is going to be too large to fit through your lounge room door frame.
Always fully measure your room before you start looking at appliances and furniture items. You want to be sure that your rental is both stylish and functional, and size is therefore very important.
You should also pay close attention to the existing colour scheme of the room. For example, a kitchen that is painted white may clash unpleasantly with a cream-coloured fridge. Snaffle offers top-of-the-line appliances in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colours, and so you should have no difficulty finding a product that is right for you.
Financial factors to consider
There are many benefits to renting an appliance over buying. While some may opt to rent for the convenience, others do so as it does not require a significant, upfront financial outlay.
While it is true that renting can help you nab your dream appliance without putting the pressure of a large upfront payment, there are some additional financial factors that you need to consider.
If you are renting an appliance, you should take the time to sit down and map out the total cost of the product. This includes electricity bills — a factor that is often overlooked.
What information will I need to provide?
Snaffle makes the renting process easy by giving you access to all of your favourite appliances through bite-sized payments.
Once you have browsed our extensive range of products and decided on the right appliance for you, you simply start the application process online or by giving us a call. You will need to provide one form of identification, a reference, as well as financial information (such as a bank statement and income/expense details) so that we can fully assess your application.
You will receive an email notification within 3 to 4 business days to let you know whether your application has been successful.
Snaffle’s delivery process
Once your application has been approved, we will dispatch your order and provide you with tracking details. The delivery company that we send your rental with depends on the type of appliance that you have ordered.
Snaffle sends our appliances at no extra cost to the customer. We deliver most appliances to the majority of postcodes, Australia-wide. If you have any questions regarding delivery, we encourage you to contact our customer service team on 1800 762 335.
If you haven’t snaffled an appliance before, you may have a few extra questions.
Are Snaffle’s products new or second hand? All appliances found on our website are brand-new, sourced directly from suppliers.
Can I upgrade my product? Customers who snaffle a phone or electronic device often ask this question. The answer depends on a few factors, including how long you are into your rental agreement. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your situation.
Do I own the appliance at the end of the rental period? No, you do not own the appliance at the end of your rental agreement. When there are 90 days left on your contract, we will contact you with a range of options, which may include the opportunity to make an offer and purchase your product for as little as $1.
