How does the 12-Month Term work?
To give you the flexibility to rent what you need for a shorter period of time, choose our 12-Month Rental Term. Or for rental periods less than 12 months check out our Short Term Rentals.
What if I have had problems with my credit in the past?
Your past is past so we focus on your present situation. That's why we get details of your current situation and work with you to see what you can afford to pay today. Remember we're Ballarat locals too and we treat everyone with dignity and respect during our approval process.
Are all the products new?
Depending on your preferred rental time period, new or previously rented products are available. With a choice of terms and plans on all products you'll be sure to find the right item for you.
What happens if my product is faulty?
If your product breaks down, is faulty or playing up in any other way just give us a call and we'll fix it or replace it for free. For essential items like fridges, washing machines and dryers, if we have to take them away to repair we'll provide temporary replacement items to get you through. Of course, deliberate damage is treated differently.
