Renting furniture puts you in control of your budget – you pick the furnishings to find a price that’s right for you.

College furniture rental also gives you more attractive and stylish options than what you may be able to pick up secondhand or free.

Renting furniture for college apartments also saves money by avoiding moving costs. You’ll save yourself the hassle and large expense of renting a truck and the heavy lifting that’s required when move furniture yourself. Instead, you can arrive at your student residence with everything in place, and at the end of your lease, we’ll will pick it up for you. It’s that easy!

With this student furniture rental option, you keep costs low and also eliminate potential conflicts with your roommates at the end of the term. No one will argue over who gets to take a piece of furniture home, because it’s going back to IFR. You can all pay equally for your desks, chairs, beds and more. Plus, no one is stuck fronting the money for a furniture purchase, only to become frustrated when the others forget to pay them back.

Gain Real-World Experience with Student Apartment Furniture

College only lasts for so long. In a few years, you’ll be heading into the real world and getting an apartment of your own. Most college students who have lived in dorm rooms where their furniture is assigned to them have no idea how to furnish an apartment or how much they need to pay attention to issues such as furniture size or placement.

When you rent furniture from IFR for your college apartment, you develop these essential life skills. You’ll be more comfortable making decisions on furniture for your future homes, whether they’re condominiums or split levels. You’ll also develop your own sense of style. You’ll see which colors you like together and which patterns look nice against a neutral background. You’ll save money by picking the right furniture the first time. For students who live in already-furnished rooms during college, it will take much longer to harness their personal style.

At IFR, we understand and offer flexible college furniture rental terms that complement your individual circumstances. Rent for as long or as short a time as you need.

Taking Care of the Furniture You Rent

The simplest way to protect the furniture you rent is to keep it clean. Each type of furniture requires its own cleaning technique. According to Angie’s List, regular dusting and vacuuming will go a long way toward keeping up with the furniture. In general, the experts suggest that you:

  • Attack spills and stains immediately. Blot them up — don’t rub.
  • Vacuum thoroughly, including the cracks and crevices and beneath the cushions.
  • Read the furniture tags and use the correct cleaning product. Always consult us if you’re unsure of how to proceed.
  • Know what kind of stains you’re trying to remove so you can address it most effectively.
  • Brush microfiber upholstery before you vacuum it.
  • Don’t use a feather duster on wood, since it can leave scratches.
  • Never use anything on acrylics that isn’t designed specifically to clean plastics. No commercial glass cleaners.
  • Even if you’re using the “right” cleaner, test it on a hidden spot for discoloration first.
  • Keep all types of furniture out of extreme heat, excessive humidity or direct sunlight.
  • Keep the use of water to a minimum when cleaning furniture.

Good maintenance of the rental furniture ensures you won’t lose your security deposit for preventable damages. If you’re ever unsure on how to properly clean an item you’re renting, please call us before attempting to use any specialty stain removers, solvents or any other method or product that could potentially cause damage.
