Q: What are the benefits of hiring rather than buying?

A: By hiring at a low weekly cost, you do not need to use capital expenditure to buy the furniture outright. We offer desks from as little as £3.80 and operator chairs from £3.25 per week* with extra discounts available for larger quantities and hire periods. You can also include the monthly rental fees within your business operating costs to benefit from tax savings.
