Routine Rental

Rental services offer more basic consumer goods for practicality

Implications - While rental services often sway toward more high-end services, a growth in more compact and sustainable living has consumers seeking out more basic rental options. Offering the temporary use of kitchen appliances and children's toys, unique rental options provide individuals with the convenience of basic goods without any long-term commitment.
