New Year’s (Full HD) Resolution

Congratulations. You’ve survived Christmas, and the New Year. And if there was one word you could use to sum it all up it would be… regret.

Regret that you spent so much money at Christmas. Regret that you drank so much on New Year’s Eve. And regret that you not only made those New Year’s resolutions, but then told everyone you know about them all.

(It’s a little-known fact that part of the brain is reserved for remembering stuff like this. So while your friends won’t remember what they said to the girl at the bar, or why they woke up chained to a traffic light, they will remember what you told them.)

And now it’s not even the end of the month and you’re already facing your friends’ taunts of how you can’t commit to anything except alcohol.

The good news is Home Appliance Rentals can help.

Don’t believe me? Well, let’s take a look at the big three resolutions people make, shall we?

Lose weight

You’ve probably thought about joining the gym (just like you did last year), but figure it’s not worth paying a yearly membership when you can only get there a few times a month. Well, with Home Appliance Rentals’ fitness equipment hire, you can bring the gym to your place. No more driving to the gym (unless your house is huge, no more feeling self-conscious, and no more mirrors.

And if treadmills and exercise bikes aren’t your thing, they can still help out. Sure, you can’t get a workout lifting anything because they do all the delivery and installation for you. But if you hire one of their gaming packages you’ll soon be shedding the kilos as you swing your Wii remote or jump around in front of your Xbox Kinect.

And if that seems a bit too strenuous, you can always hire one of their home theatre packages and spend an afternoon strolling down the aisles of your nearest DVD store trying to choose a movie.

Save money

Let’s face it: household appliances are expensive. And I’m not just talking about buying them, either. First there’s all that driving around to find the best deal. Then you have to put up with the sales staff rattling off every acronym and technical term they can think of to try and sway you. And when you finally choose something there’s the cost of getting it all delivered, not to mention the anguish/threats of divorce as you try to set it all up.

With Home Appliance Rentals it’s just a weekly payment, and that’s it. They deliver, they set it up, and they look after it. In fact, about the only thing they don’t do is watch the TV shows for you. And rather than being stuck with what you bought, you can upgrade as new technology becomes available (like 5D-TV, where the actor’s fist actually comes out of the screen and punches you in the face).

Get organised

This is something we all threaten from time to time, which is why if you want to become a millionaire you should invest in whatever company makes plastic tubs. But while Home Appliance Rentals doesn’t offer any of those, they can help out in other ways.

Maybe you need a computer for the office to get all those paper files stored electronically. Or maybe you need an extra wardrobe or tall boy for the bedroom to get all those clothes off the floor. (“Look, honey. Floorboards!”) With Home Appliance Rentals you’ll spend less time looking for things, and more time enjoying them.

So, next time you see your friends and they ask how your new year’s resolutions are going, you’ll be able to tell them you’re doing great.

And you’ve even got the receipts to prove it.
