Furniture shopping at the store makes sense. Larger appliances and HD TVs as well. Why? Here are some very good reasons.
Sitting on a couch and bed are a must in person. It’s paramount to personally view a HD TV before you buy it. Looking and opening an oven, refrigerator and washer/dryer combo are a must. And listening to a wireless speaker system needs your ears. And you can only do those in person. You need to make sure it’s the perfect fit, color and size.
Try it before you buy it. Yes, you can try it at the store but it’s better if you can try it at home. Rent to own stores are the best for that option. That’s part of their unique niche in the shopping world. They will deliver and let you try it for a week or month and then pick it up if you want. Make sure you ask the rent to own store employee their policies. Each rent to own store is different.
Furniture shopping and other important home furnishings is a science as much as an art. Use these tips to make your shopping a Rembrandt.
Make sure you compare prices on-line and competitors ready. Have their prices, specials and discounts already on your iPhone to show the salesperson. You could get it cheaper in person or it may already be cheaper. These stores need you in there and will have incentives. Ask about delivery fees and warranties as those can be expensive and not listed in their pricing.
Make sure you bring your measurements with you when looking for specific furniture, appliances and electronics. If you think you can eyeball measurements then don’t. Rarely works and if you’re that good then you’re one of the lucky few.
Do your homework especially furniture shopping because there are so many styles, colors and prices. Take photos or video of where you’re planning to put the furniture so as to get the size and colors as matched as possible.
Rent to own stores can be good to go to if you want to look at varying furniture, HD TVs and appliances especially if prices or payments are an issue. Again, you can try before you buy with a single obligation to own. You have the option to own not the obligation to own. That’s a common misperception.
Rent to own prices also include delivery, pick up and maintenance as part of their pricing. Those are not extra fees as typical retail does. And shop around, rent to own stores and general retail stores are begging for your business so use their competition to your advantage.
