Hire -v- Buy – What are the real savings?

What are the real savings on hire-v- buy?

When you’re newly pregnant and considering setting up your nursery, its natural to want to have the best of everything for your baby. But these days, with $2,000+ prams and $1,500 beds, purchasing all this brand new just doesn’t make sense. This is where we step in, enabling families to hire rather than buy their nursery equipment. Our motto is “Why buy when you can hire?” but what does that really mean? What are the average savings on hiring –v- buying? We’ve prepared a comparison table that contrasts the cost of hiring your nursery equipment –v- paying RRP, keeping in mind that these are all items that are only required for a limited period in your nursery.

*All hire costs are based on a 6 month hire except the breastpump in this table which we’ve estimated will be hired for 4 weeks.

All up, a couple who choose to hire just these few nursery items that are really only required for such a limited amount of time in your baby’s early days could save themselves over 80% of the retail cost of the very same items. Its quite a big saving and something to think about when doing your budgeting.

Hiring is also a good way to try products you’re not sure about, before you buy and are then stuck with them sitting collecting dust in the garage or waiting for the day you can get the camera out, take the pictures, then list it all on Ebay and hope you can recoup at least a bit of the outlay.

All of our baby equipment for hire is purchased brand new direct from the manufacturer or importer, every piece is carefully cleaned and safety checked before each hire and is regularly replaced to maintain our exacting standards. You’re not going to lose out on quality just because you hire – we have a large range of premium, luxury baby products from brands such as Leander, Bugaboo, Seed Organics, Baby Jogger, Maxi Cosi, 4Moms and many more.

Every member of our staff is a qualified and accredited Infant Restraint Fitter and we offer complimentary fitting of all hired infant restraints so that you can rest assured that your baby’s safety is our priority. All hire baby capsules come with free professional installation.

Hiring baby equipment is also great for holidays, whether for yourself or for relatives or friends who are coming to visit. It can greatly reduce stress, save you those exorbitant excess baggage fees (without even mentioning the potential for serious damage to your baby equipment when its in transit). Using our Sydney Airport Concierge Service means you can have everything ready and waiting in your hire car by the time you arrive.
