The firm, which is owned by Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway, says that cost, convenience and guarantee of quality are all factors in furniture rental being increasingly seen by relocation professionals as the ideal solution.
The service Roomservice by CORT provides ensures that homes are furnished ahead of new residents' arrival, with a guarantee on the quality of the furniture and the flexibility to return or swap items as tastes and situations change. When this is combined with estimated savings of up to 70% when renting furniture rather than shipping on assignments between six and 24 months, it is easy to see why the popularity of furniture rental is rising.
Roger Hollis, managing director of Roomservice by CORT, comments: "Especially among professionals on short-and-medium-term relocations, furniture rental is becoming more and more attractive.
"As the benefits of choice, convenience, quality and cost-effectiveness become apparent, Roomservice by CORT is helping people to take the hassle and worry out of feeling completely comfortable in their new surroundings."
