Why should I rent rather than buy?
Simply put, choice, convenience, peace of mind and great service from people who genuinely care. Rental provides many benefits over buying. It’s like becoming a member of a special club with exclusive benefits.
Household goods are expensive, costly to repair and technology is always changing so you end up being stuck with your purchase long after the latest model has been launched. Renting gives you access to a wide range of products quickly and affordably without having to dip into your savings for these high-ticket items or worse, sign up for expensive, long-term credit agreements with crazy APRs, nasty fees and penalties. We’re committed to being transparent about our pricing, so you’ll always know the costs upfront. With a single weekly payment, keeping track of things and managing the household budget is always easy.
Renting from us is fast and stress-free – simply choose the product you’d like, apply through our website and let us deliver it to you at a time that suits you best. Delivery can be as soon as the next day for most of our products.
Renting allows you to get the latest products at an affordable price with the option to upgrade to the latest technology and designs meaning you’re never stuck with old technology. We also understand that life can be unpredictable so if your circumstances change and you need to cut back on your weekly outgoings, we’ll help you do that too.
It’s a fact of life that household products breakdown and repair costs and extended warranties are very expensive. With Switch Rentals there are no expensive repair or service bills. If your product breaks down you can book a service call 24/7, we’ll call out to your home, repair the product and even leave you a loan item if we have to take it away. Give expensive repair bills the boot, our hassle-free service gives you total peace of mind.
If I place my order today how long can I expect to wait before it is delivered?
For most of our products delivery is within 24 hours if ordered by 1pm. We’ll process your application super fast and you’ll receive an immediate decision online. Once your initial payment has been processed you can then select your preferred day for delivery and the great news is most of our products can be delivered the very next day. We might take a little longer for a small selection of our products but we’ll always keep you informed.
How long is it before I know if my application has been successful?
You’ll know within seconds of making your application as we’ll give you an immediate answer online.
Internet orders are typically just dropped off at the door. How will you deliver my product?
We will never just drop the product off. We employ trained and experienced teams who will unpack the product and dispose of all the packaging your item comes in. They’ll connect the product to your existing services* and give you a demonstration of the important features. If you want us to, we’ll even take away your old product and dispose of it for you free of charge in a way you would want and expect us to. *Your existing services must be in good repair and within 1 metre of where you would like the product positioned.
What days of the week do you deliver?
We deliver Monday to Saturday and as long as you order by 1pm most of our products can be delivered the next day. You can also select your preferred day for us to deliver.

How do I pay?
We’ll take your first week’s rental by debit or credit card while we process your easy online application. Thereafter your weekly rental payment is paid by direct debit which is the best and most convenient method of payment. For your peace of mind and security, we set up your direct debit instruction online and send you a copy of the mandate while you complete the process. It couldn’t be easier.
Do you charge any late fees or penalties?
Absolutely not. There are no fees or penalties whatsoever and all we ask you to do is stick to your minimum agreement and keep up to date with your payments as we think that’s fair.
How long do I have to rent the product?
We ask you to sign up for a minimum of 18 months. During this period, you will have access to all of the member benefits like free delivery, free service and repairs, opportunity to upgrade your product to the latest technology and rent additional products.

Can I buy the product?
No, you can only rent from Switch Rentals who retain ownership of the product at all times. Being part of the Switch Rentals club provides many benefits over buying like free repairs & service, the ability to upgrade and low weekly payments without incurring any interest charges or late fees and penalties.
Do you deliver to my postcode?
We currently serve the majority of postcodes in South Wales and Bristol and are planning on opening up new areas regularly. Register with us by opening an account and we’ll keep you informed about when we will be in a position to serve your area.
Delivery is Free!
Delivery and installation is absolutely free on all our products.
Some of our competitors offer free delivery but add an administration charge which is hidden in the small print, which we think is sneaky.
Do I have to be at home to sign for the delivery?
Yes, you do. As the account holder we will need to complete the installation and demonstration with you and have you sign the driver’s delivery paperwork. This is to confirm receipt of the goods and ensure that you are completely happy with the installation service and how your installation was conducted.
Will you take away my old product?
Yes, we will if you would like us to. When we deliver your new product, we will collect and dispose of your old product for you.
Collection & Disposal hints & tips
- We’d be grateful if you would make sure any product you ask us to collect and dispose of is in a safe condition.
- Where possible it would be really helpful if cooling products are defrosted, with no water left inside.
- When making a collection for you we will do all we can not to damage your property. In certain circumstances we may not be able to collect your old product where for example there is an unmovable appliance, seized-up taps, and the appliance is hard wired into a fused spur.
- If you ask us to collect your old product we will only guarantee to do so if the item is of a similar product and size to the one we’re delivering. For example, we won’t collect and dispose of a 3-piece suite if you’re having a new washing machine installed.
- We will not store your product once we have collected it from your property and it will be disposed of immediately.
- We’ll ask you to sign a form that authorises us to make the collection and disposal of it along with confirming that the item is your property.
What happens if the product I’ve ordered doesn’t fit?
Before you select your new product, we want to help you make sure that you have the correct measurements of the spaces in the rooms around your home.
All of the product dimensions can be found in the further information section for each product on our website. When ordering your chosen item, we would kindly ask that you check the dimensions of the product and compare these with the access to your property and door openings.
In addition to the product dimensions it would also be helpful for you to measure space in the area around where you plan to position your new product. So for example, appliance doors can open wide enough for you to use your new item.
How do you measure a TV screen size?
The screen size is measured diagonally from corner to corner. Whilst in most of Europe screen sizes are measured in centimetres here in the UK, we still refer to screen sizes in inches.
