Re: Why rent furniture?

In graduate school, me and my roommate found a black pleather love seat at Rent-A-Center.  It was outside the store.  They would not deliver the love seat to our apartment so we found a way to get it there.  The love seat was infested with roaches.


Never, never, never, never, never, never, never rent furniture!

Furniture outside the store would have made me draw up question marks.

I think when setting down roots it makes sense to purchase.  But for travelers it makes sense to rent places that are furnished.

Re: Why rent furniture?

I wouldn't rent furniture. Who knows if what you're getting came out of a roach infested home.
