Congratulations you’ve done it: Scenario 1 - you have just made the leap from renter to owner. Scenario 2 - you have just relocated to a new area and found that perfect condo, apt, or house to rent. Scenario 3 – you just got a job promotion that has relocated you out of state.
All the change is new and exciting; it feels great to be moving forward, except one thing. The lease/purchase didn’t come with a refrigerator or washer & dryer. You’ve already sunk a large amount of money into just getting a roof over your head and don’t want or can’t afford to spend any more. You might even be in sticker shock at the price of a new refrigerator or washer/dryer. One of the above scenario’s recently happened to me. I moved into a house rental and it didn’t come with a refrigerator. I looked into buying but didn’t want the expense and also didn’t want to have the hassle of hauling any heavy appliances to future rentals. I then was stuck with the question of what do you do?
I did some research and came up with a brilliant idea - appliance rental - an inexpensive alternative to purchasing. I found a company named B & B Appliance who service all of Southern California. They are family owned and operated and have been in business for 17 years. One of the things that sets them apart from other appliance rental companies is they not only rent major appliances but they also rent out virtually everything you need to set up your household. Like linens for your bed and bath, dinnerware, pots, pans, irons, ironing boards, hangers, trash cans, phones answering machines, coffee makers and even supply you with starter necessities like toilet paper, shampoos and dish detergent. This is not only great for those corporate clients that are relocating and may need a temporary set up, but for those of us who don’t want the hassle of having to set up an entire household.
I called B & B Appliance and arranged to rent a refrigerator. I found them to be friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They helped cut through some of the confusion of what size appliance I needed by me just giving them the dimensions of the space the refrigerator would be in. When it came it was a snug and perfect fit. The delivery of the refrigerator was timely and the delivery men were extremely careful and consciences of me and my property. They did an extra cleaning of the refrigerator before bringing it inside so any dirt which may have accumulated from the drive didn’t come into my home. They were careful not to nick the floors, walls and doorways and as they left they made sure that the droplets of water (from the icemaker hose) that had fallen on the floor were wiped up. When they had the refrigerator in place they wiped it down again so there were no finger prints etc.
I am extremely pleased with the level of professionalism and care I have received from my dealings with B & B Appliance. I am also pleased with the refrigerator I now have standing proudly in my new kitchen.
