Washer/dryer hire: Find the best option at Homie

26 June 2024

Renting a washer or dryer is a practical solution for many people. Whether you are a student, living temporarily, or just want to avoid the cost of a big purchase, a rental option could be the perfect solution. In this blog, we talk about the benefits of renting these home appliances, look at what to look out for and introduce you to Homie. 

Why choose to rent laundry appliances?

Renting a washer or dryer offers several advantages. First of all, you don’t have to invest a large amount of money right away. This makes it more accessible to people who don’t want to or can’t spend thousands of euros right away. Moreover, renting often includes maintenance and any repairs, so you won’t be faced with unexpected costs. In addition, renting is flexible: you can often end the contract at any time (though there is often a minimum term). 

What are the costs of renting a washing machine or dryer?

When renting a washer or dryer, the cost is directly linked to the rental period and the type of appliance. Prices can vary depending on the specifications of the appliance and the length of the rental contract. In general, the longer the rental period, the lower the monthly cost.

What should I pay attention to when choosing a rental device?

  • Capacity and efficiency: Choose a machine that suits your household. Larger capacity is useful for large families, while an efficient model helps save energy.
  • Contract terms: Read the rental contract carefully. Note the duration of the contract, early termination fees and what happens if the appliance breaks down.
  • Service and maintenance: Make sure maintenance and repairs are included in your rental. This prevents unexpected expenses and ensures that your device is always working properly. At Homie, this is always included. 

What about the durability of rented appliances?

A good question, because sustainability is an important issue these days. Rented appliances are often of high quality and well maintained, so they are less likely to need replacing. In addition, rental companies often choose models that are energy-efficient to reduce running costs and remain attractive to environmentally conscious consumers.

Benefits of flexibility and convenience

Renting a washer or dryer offers unprecedented convenience. You not only get an appliance delivered to your home, but also installed at no extra cost. Should anything go wrong, the landlord will arrange repair or replacement. You can also often adjust the rental contract to suit your changing needs, which is ideal if you move house or your family situation changes.

Can I choose the model or type of appliance I want to rent?

Many people wonder if they are limited in their choice when renting an appliance. The answer is simple: with most rental companies, you have a wide range of models and brands to choose from. This allows you to select a washer or dryer that fits your lifestyle and space perfectly. Look for a landlord that offers various options, from standard models for everyday use to advanced appliances with extra features such as steam cycles or Wi-Fi connectivity.

What happens if I move?

Moving house can be a tricky process, especially if you own large home appliances. A common question is what happens to the rented appliances when you move. Most rental companies offer flexible solutions. Some can move the rented appliance to your new address, while others give you the option to terminate or transfer the contract. It’s important to discuss this in advance, so you know exactly what options you have and how any additional costs will be calculated. Also read more about this in our frequently asked questions

How soon can I start using a rented device?

The speed with which you can use a rented device is often a crucial factor. Fortunately, many rental companies offer quick delivery and installation, sometimes even within days of signing the rental contract. This means you won’t have to wait long to use your new washer or dryer. Always check availability and delivery conditions before signing a contract, though, to avoid surprises.
