Anyone who had to work from home without any chance to build a proper home office during the pandemic knows that correct office furniture really does make the difference between productivity and discomfort. As we all continue to navigate the pandemic, many businesses are addressing interesting challenges of possibly relocating, and many are balancing changing needs for office space and work-from-home employees. Some even have to start from scratch with office design since they gave up their physical space during the pandemic. If you’ve found yourself in a situation where you need new furniture, possibly on a very tight budget, you should consider the many benefits of office furniture rentals.
Office Furniture Rentals are Great For Startups
Renting furniture is great for startups since they don’t have to sink a ton of capital into things that may prove to be the wrong fit – this is also great if you’re relocating an established business. Renting gives you time to get a feel for your new space and have your employees contribute to what they think your furniture needs are, without having to go without furniture in the interim. Rent what you think will work, and then change as needed. You can often work out contracts with great flexibility.
Office Furniture Rentals are a Cost-Effective Solution
Buying sturdy, beautiful furniture is a costly investment because you expect it to last a long time. This is fine when you have the capital available and know exactly what you need. Devoting those funds to things that may not work is harder. Renting is less expensive upfront, and it gives you a chance to try things out while putting the capital to other uses. It is also a direct business expense that could be fully tax-deductible.
More Flexibility, Less Downtime
The look and comfort of your furniture impact your brand reputation and employee productivity. You don’t want tattered and torn stuff since it can decrease morale and give customers or clients the wrong impression. Renting allows you to have great furniture without having to commit to always having the same furniture. Perhaps you need more for the next few months while you onboard people or reintroduce in-office work. Perhaps your needs will change in the immediate future. Renting is ideal. It also limits downtime since you don’t have to go through a lengthy buying process, and the products often arrive pre-assembled.
