If you want to get in on the subscription service trend, this washing machine rental option is an environmentally and economically sound choice. If you don't want to pay for a high quality washer, the Netherlands-based Bundles is the answer.
Available in Amsterdam, the washing machine rental offers Miele WKG 120 WCS models at a fraction of the price. An engineer will come to your house to install the appliance and Bundles will deal with any other maintenance issues. A smart plug also measures its energy efficiency. Due to the steep price of the Miele models, Bundles also receives a discount for getting more people to try the washing machine rental.
If a similar subscription service came to North America, it could be quite promising for university and college students, as well as young professionals.
