Need it? Rent it!
What if I want to return my items earlier than intended?
When you submit your rental application we ask you to provide an estimate of your hire period (1 month, 3 months or 6 months) – this enables us to calculate your rental rate. Longer hire periods attract lower rates. If you need to cut your hire period short, provided your rental payments are up to date, you have an early termination option under the terms and conditions of your rental agreement. Simply contact us on 02 9310 1999 to discuss your options. For more information, please refer to our terms and conditions here.
What if I want to return my items later than intended?
You can elect to keep your items beyond your initial hire period. If you hire beyond your initial hire period, your rental contract becomes an indefinite period rental arrangement.
What if I want to rent other items or change my rental plan?
If you are an existing customer of Renta Centre you can easily apply for additional rental items. Call us to discuss your options if you would like to hire additional items. If your circumstances have changed and you need to change your rental plan give us a call and we’ll work with you to find the best solution for your circumstances.
Simply call Renta Centre on (02) 9310 1999 and let us tailor a rental plan that is right for you!
