Use Fridge Hire Services to Make Your Holidays Effortless

Planning food requirements for the holidays and for Christmas can be tricky.  Cooking ahead helps but then you need extra space in the fridge to keep food fresh for guests. You may struggle to keep foods cool when you need the space for refrigerating beverages.  Tough choice!

If every holiday you wish you had another fridge, but the rest of the time you're just fine, a refrigerator rental might just solve all your problems.

Why Should You Hire a Fridge for Your Next Party?

If you're having a big party, will have house guests for several weeks, or just want more room in the kitchen than you currently have, refrigerator rentals give you extra space without the cost of buying another appliance that you only need some of the time.

All of our fridges are ready to go. You plug it in, let it cool down, store it, and then return it when you're done. Nothing could be simpler.

The next time you need extra cold storage, hire a refrigerator rather than trying to jam everything into one unit, or spending a fortune on ice to keep your beverages cold.

What Kind of Fridge Can I Hire?

We have several different styles and sizes of fridge available for rental. If you need just a little extra space, our small fridge will probably be plenty; if you need a whole separate storage area, our large fridge might be closer to what you need. We can also work with your budget if you have a specific need.

  • Our small fridge holds between 200 and 290L, and suits 1 to 2 people.
  • Our medium fridge holds between 291 and 390L, and suits 2 to 4 people.
  • Our large fridge holds between 391 and 490L, and suits 3 to 5 people.
All of our fridges are frost free. Specific dimensions can vary; if you have a tight space, let us know and we will see what we have available to make sure that it will fit.

We arrange hires for both short term and long term situations. Give us a call to find out the details, and let us help you find the right hire for your situation. Let us make your next holiday event simple by hiring a fridge and expanding your storage space.

Hire an XBox or PS4 to Keep Kids Entertained Over School Holidays

As the school holidays approach, grown-ups look for ways to keep the kids entertained. While traditional fun like hanging out with friends, enjoying a good book, and various other pursuits are still fantastic, some parents and carers want to give the kids a special treat to make the holidays more memorable. If traveling to a fun location isn't possible, choosing to hire an Xbox or PS4 can be a great way to make holidays memorable.

Why an Xbox or PS4 Makes Sense for Holidays

Many parents are concerned about buying a gaming system for their house because the systems tend to become outdated over time. They might also worry that their child would struggle to keep up with schoolwork if they have the option of playing games instead. But the school holidays offer an opportunity to relax a lot of rules and regulations, returning to the more strict rules when school is back in session.

Encourage Social Interaction

Many parents think of gaming as a solo activity, but with multiplayer games, co-op opportunities, and the other entertainment possibilities on an Xbox or PS4, a kid can hang out with friends, enjoy social interaction, and even make their house the place to be for all of their friends.

Play Physical Games

Video games often used to mean that someone spent hours with their behind firmly planted on the couch. Newer games allow for ranges of motion, and encourage physical activity. From dancing games to games that allow you to use your body to control your character, you can raise your heart rate and get a workout in while enjoying a virtual environment.

Enjoy Additional Entertainment

Xbox and PS4 are no longer just about playing video games. You can stream movies, play music, browse the Internet, and explore exclusive content. When you hire an entertainment system for your kids over their school holidays, you are giving them everything they need to stay entertained and enthused over the length of their holiday.

Everything You Need to Get Started

Your hire includes:

  • A console
  • One wireless controller
  • One Kinect sensor bar (with Xbox hires)
  • One connecting cable
  • One adventure game

You can rent or buy additional games from other sources, but we give you what you need to get started with an exciting game.

You can rent a system for a week at a time, or for six months or more. Contact us today to find out more about hiring a PS4 or Xbox for the school holidays.

Hire a Window Display Your Customers Will Notice

If your shop is in a busy marketplace, you may struggle to get customer attention or foot traffic in your door. LED and LCD display hire can make a huge difference, but how do you know if they'll work for you? These screens can be a big investment when you're not sure if your business will see any improvement.

Try It For Yourself

Hiring an LCD/LED screen for your shop window, provides all the benefits to test this retail marketing solution with none of the worries of a wasted investment if it doesn't end up being exactly what your business needs. We take care of setting up the display in your store / window and then it's your turn to experiment. You'll just need to have your message ready on a USB and if you need a stand we can supply the complete package. Try different messages, experiment with different options, and see what draws your customers in.

Reach Out to Your Customers

Interactive marketing is important for businesses of all types. You might want to share a message from your founder, welcome customers into your shop with some information about your products and brands, or just let them know about a special discount that you have available. Having an LED or LCD screen in your window lets you show more dynamic branding, advertise a flash sale, or let customers outside know that you have a sales associate available right now to discuss their needs. Whatever you have in mind, get your message across with colour, energy, and light.

Attract More Interest

By building a dynamic brand that invites people into your business, you tell them that their opinion and interest matters. They feel more interested in your service and product than they otherwise might. After all, window displays work because they get customers to gaze in your windows and see that there's something intriguing going on inside.

A Versatile Way to Capture Attention

By creating motion and light with an LCD or LED display, you have the chance to capture customer attention and expand your business audience. You can also avoid paying expensive printing fees whenever your message changes. But when you're not ready to make that capital investment, hiring a display screen may be the best way to get your feet wet with the technology.

With many years of experience helping companies improve their marketing with high tech digital screen hire solutions, Home Appliance Rentals can help your business decide which LED / LCD  solution is right for you. From a small screen that will display messages, to a larger one that can play promo videos and similar media, we will help you find just what you need.

Renting Your Television: Why it Makes Sense

These days most of us are on a budget, and we’re trying to find ways to make savings where we can. However, with lifestyles are driven by technology we seem to be constantly spending our hard earned cash on one expensive gadget after another. Technology moves so quickly that as soon as we get used to using the latest model, a newer and more advanced version is released, which of course, we instantly want! It’s impossible to keep up with the digital trends without breaking the bank... or is it?

Accommodating the whole family

Gone are the days when the whole family was happy to sit and watch the same show on a poor-quality screen. Modern technology has enabled all of us to expect preferences delivered on demand, and in practically every room. Catering for everyone is expensive, especially as TV technology is advancing so fast. This is why it makes sense to rent rather than buy, whether it’s one television you want or one for each member of the family.

TV technology without the price tag

The latest televisions aren’t just something you watch; they’re smart devices that you can actually interact with. These days it just won’t do unless your TV has an LED, HD-quality screen with wireless capability and a web browser built in. We’ve come to take On Demand streaming services for granted, and expect to watch YouTube videos on our televisions, too; and if possible, we want our movies in 3D. It’s no wonder all of this comes with a heavy price tag.

At Home Appliance Rentals, however, it doesn’t have to. You can rent the latest LED smart television for six months, enjoying all the viewing and gaming features you need. Personalise it with apps from the app store, and even log into your Facebook and Twitter accounts on your TV between your favourite shows. Renting allows you to access the latest technology without the initial cash outlay; after all, who knows how advanced televisions will have become by this time next year?

Convenient household appliance hire

When you rent a television from Home Appliance Rentals, you won’t have to worry about transportation, installation, or any of the annoying procedures you have to go through before you can sit down and watch your television. We will deliver, install and connect your television for you, leaving you to get on with the important business of enjoying it! And in the unlikely event of a fault developing during your rental period, your television will be repaired or replaced free of charge at no extra cost. You can also return it at any time once your initial rental period is up, saving you the trouble of trying to sell or dispose of technology you no longer need, or for convenience if you move property.

Television rental makes sense in today’s climate more than ever before; and as we progress through the digital age, it is an option more and more of us are likely to choose.

Corporate TV Rentals for the Rio Olympics

Every four years we witness an event that tests the limit of human endurance. One that brings out the fighting spirit of participants and spectators alike.

As the losers fall by the wayside, and the frontrunners ready themselves for the final battle, we experience a range of emotions—joy, sorrow, horror, amazement, bewilderment.

And then it’s all over for another four years, and we shake our heads at the way the US elects their president.

Fortunately, the Olympic Games is also run every four years to give us a bit of a reprieve. For 16 days (or three months if the golf events are being telecast) you can get away from presidential candidates droning on for hours, and listen to the Australian Olympic commentators for hours instead.

This year the Games are being held in Rio de Janeiro, which is somewhere in Brazil. Rio (as it’s affectionately known by people who keep spelling “Janeiro” wrong) is famous for its wild five-day celebration known as Carnival. Fortunately for everyone involved, Brazil is also the world’s largest producer of coffee.

Unfortunately, Brazil is in a completely different time zone to Australia—a major oversight by the IOC. That means that during the week your employees may well be staying awake all night to watch the events. And that’s going to have a major impact on your business’ productivity (not to mention its coffee supplies).

The good news is that Home Appliance Rentals has the perfect solution. Simply hire a large-screen TV, set it up in the office, and let your employees watch all the replays while they work. (Of course there are going to be replays.)

With their corporate short-term rental packages, you can hire TVs and other items for as long as you need them—whether it’s a weekend, a week, or even longer. That means you can return the TV as soon as the Games are over and avoid a problem even worse than sleep deprivation—daytime television.

And what if people want to use the room the TV’s in for something trivial such as a board meeting? Well, Home Appliance Rentals also have TV stands with wheels so you can move it just about anywhere.

So don’t risk your office becoming a scene from The Walking Dead. Get in touch with Home Appliance Rentals, and take advantage of their corporate short-term rental packages to bring the Games to your office.

Corporate Event Organisation

It's a lot of work to organise corporate events including AGMs, conferences and other large meetings. This work often falls on just a few people within the company. It makes sense to make the job as easy as possible by hiring the equipment from a specialised hire firm. Not only does this usually give you a more affordable price for the event hire, it also means that you have a single point of contact, which makes the job of the event organiser much easier during a busy time.
Here are some of the items you might need for the next meeting you are planning. 


 Projectors are useful if many of the presentations include slides and/or images to support the speeches. Professional projectors give sharper picture quality, and also tend to be more reliable. Lower quality projectors can overheat if they are used for any length of time, so if you don't have a high-quality projector within the company, then it can be a good idea to hire one.

Large screens 

Once you have a projector organised it's important to have large clean screens so that a presentation can be seen clearly from anywhere in the room. This allows the attendees to really focus on the message.

TV screens 

If you are video conferencing with other people during the meeting, or including video clips of people who can't be in the room, it can be useful to have a large screen TV to clearly show the clips.

Video equipment 

If you need to record a meeting for later viewing, or for editing and putting online, then it's a good idea to use a professional level video camera so that the image appears clear and audio is easy to listen to on any device it might later be played upon.

AV equipment 

No matter how powerful the message, if the people at the back of the room can't hear it, then they'll soon lose interest. Having subtle and easy-to-use microphones and speakers allows everyone in the room to engage with the meeting presentation and not become distracted by poor sound quality.

Hire Package Deals

If you need to get more than one item, then it makes sense to head to a supplier that offers a package deal. Home Appliance Rentals offers great package prices on any combination of these items for corporate customers, so if you are looking to hire some equipment for your next event call them on 1300 800 388 .

Get Fit with Fitness Equipment Rental

We know you have a long list of great reasons for not tackling your New Year’s resolution to get fit. Yet you’re also probably aware of how important a regular routine of physical activity is for your health and well-being.

Plenty of scientific research studies have demonstrated how exercise strengthens the muscles of both your body and mind. It upgrades your quality of living and energy levels, as well as adds years to your life span.

We can help you get past all of your excuses, jump up and race into a regular exercise plan.

Let’s start by addressing some problems that stand in your way. How many of these pretexts strike a chord with you?

  • There’s no time in your busy lifestyle for exercise.
  • Once the kiddies are home from school or child care, there’s no one else around to care for them.
  • You don’t have the funds to afford a membership at a local fitness club.
  • Traveling to the gym facilities is inconvenient, tiring and time-consuming.

Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that fitness equipment rental can help resolve all these issues!


When it comes to working out, renting home exercise equipment provides the ultimate in convenience. All you need to do is walk down your hallway, mount yourself on the treadmill or bike or elliptical (or your preferred machine) and start moving your limbs! With no precious time or energy wasted in transit, you’ll be able to invest all of your power into exercise.


Gym equipment hire allows you to make of the most of your free time. Instead of slouching on the couch in front of the telly, set up your fitness equipment in the study and enjoy your favorite programs while working out. Yet don’t leave exercise simply to chance - or it’s bound to never happen. Examine your calendar and figure out what time slots work best, and then pencil your exercise routine into your schedule. Treat physical fitness with the same commitment as any other important meeting or task.


If the best time for exercise falls out when you’re home with the kiddies, that’s no excuse! Take turns babysitting with your partner, or call upon family and friends to lend a caring hand. Perhaps you can even set up a weekly rotation plan with a neighbor who’s also interested in staying healthy and getting in shape? You owe it to yourself to stay in shape and feel good!


With fitness equipment rental, economical short-term plans are available so you can give it a trial run, and cost effective long-term plans are offered once you’re devoted to taking care of yourself. Discount package deals allow you to stock your home affordably with a diverse range of gym equipment.

Remember, the benefits of a regular fitness routine are too enormous to hide behind excuses. Bringing exercise and gym equipment into your home grants you an easy, ideal way to take your first step towards better health.
