The 4 Best Furniture Rental Companies in NYC

Renting is a way of life in NYC. Apartments are constantly changing hands and people move every day. This is what makes buying furniture a hassle. You can’t guarantee a piece will go with your new place. This is where rental furniture comes in. Most places that rent furniture will offer flexible lease options, cheaper prices, and they’ll even assemble it for you! Many places will even let you buy the furniture if you end up wanting to keep it. There’s a lot to choose from, so we here at CitySignal have decided to focus on some of the stores that New Yorkers keep coming back to.

Furniture for the artist inside all of us, Conjure features four different collections based on New York’s most iconic neighborhoods. These collections are ideal for people who don’t like to settle down in one spot for too long. Furniture is available for any room of your house. They even offer lighting and mirrors! Conjure has a little bit of everything, and that everything can be available to you at an incredibly reasonable cost.

The Furniture

Conjure furniture comes in four different collections based on four Manhattan neighborhoods. The West Village collection comes with warm, classy furniture with a vibe that’s a bit retro. The East Village collection is more vibrant, bright, and quirky. The SoHo collection is sleek and edgy, while the Tribeca collection is for those who want subtlety that still makes a good impression. With over 150 pieces available, you have a lot to choose from. You can even mix and match if you have a specific vision. No matter what collection you rent from, you’ll have a stylish home that your friends will envy…Unless they also shop at Conjure.

The Rental Terms

Conjure has a very flexible rental policy, and every payment you make goes toward purchasing the furniture. First, select your lease term. Your lease can last anywhere from 3 to 12 months. Because every payment goes toward purchase, longer leases will end up having a lower monthly payment. If you dislike the furniture, and don’t want to buy it, you can turn it in once your lease is up and receive some store credit! If you need to break your lease early, you’re still obligated to pay your lease in full. However, Conjure will work with you to reshape your payment plan, and ensure the amount you’ve already paid is factored into said new plan. You need to have a minimum credit score of 600 and a minimum monthly rental payment of $69, so get shopping!

The Delivery Instructions

Conjure offers free delivery and assembly roughly 5-7 business days after you sign your lease. You’ll be notified 24 hours before your delivery date, and most deliveries only take around three hours. Someone will need to be home to supervise the delivery and assembly. However, once that delivery is made, you’re good to go! If you choose to give your furniture back, you will have to pay a pick up fee of $199.

CORT is a larger furniture rental brand, with stores all over the nation. They’ve been able to have this wide of a reach thanks to their huge selections, great prices, and flexible pricing. They even have people who will help you design the interior of your home! With this much flexibility and service, it’s no wonder why people keep renting from them. If you’re about to move, take a look at what they have to offer.

The Furniture

CORT has over 20 collections of furniture, each as unique as the last. With pieces to match the style of any home, some of their best collections include the sophisticated Madden Collection, the minimalist Clarence Collection, and the industrial Helix Collection. However, their best deals are their Move-In Ready packages. They have three categories, Home, Student, and Military packages. These packages even have their own, specific, rental options, meaning your home will still be a unique work of art. CORT truly has an incredible selection. The Move-In Ready package even comes with interior designers so you can get the most out of your rental. 

The Rental Terms

CORT delivers all over the country, and NYC has some of their biggest customers. It doesn’t matter if you need your furniture for a short or long period of time because customers can rent pieces from one month to over a year. The longer the lease, the shorter the monthly payment. While rental payments don’t go directly toward buying the furniture, renters do get discounts and special considerations for pieces they want to keep permanently. You also have the option of renewing your lease on the furniture. Move-In Packages start as low as $129 a month.

The Delivery Instructions

CORT will do its best to deliver your furniture within 48 hours of your lease signing, though they may be delayed if there’s a national disaster or if they’re having a busy season. While they charge a delivery fee, they offer a one week exchange at no additional charge. When your lease is up, simply call the company and schedule a pick-up date. You can schedule a date up to 30 days in advance. There will also be a one time pick-up fee.

Another larger chain, Brook has a wide variety of options. They have special offerings for apartments, homes, and offices in NYC, and all of these offerings include hassle free delivery and flexible leases. They also have free, professional designers who can help you make your home the envy of your building. Now matter where you move in the city, Brook will be able to give you great service.

The Furniture

Brook has three ways to rent for your home. You can either rent individual pieces on their own, via their “Fast Path” service, or you can rent room by room.

No matter how you choose to rent, you’ll get to choose from a wide selection of quality pieces that can fit almost anyone’s style!

The Rental Terms

Once you know how you want to rent, you’ll need to choose your lease length. Your lease can be as short as a month or as long as a year, and the renewal process is easy if you want to keep using your furniture. You can also buy the furniture for a discounted rate once your lease is up. Once your lease is signed you have one week to return or exchange your furniture for no additional cost. You are obligated to pay the full amount of your lease, so if you need to break your lease, Brook’s customer service will help you restructure your payment plan. You can also set up a month-to-month payment plan once your lease ends.

The Delivery Instructions

Once you sign your lease, your furniture can be delivered to you in one to two business days. For a small delivery fee, workers will come to your house and assemble your furniture for you. When your lease is up, just call Brook’s customer service to set-up a pick up appointment. You will need to be home for both drop off and pickup, but everything else is done for you, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
