How it works (FAQs)
Do you deliver?
No. To make our rental packages as cost effective as possible, clients are to arrange their own pickup and return of items from our warehouse in Schofields, NSW, 2762.
Please note, this means that the items have to be removed from/ returned to the warehouse and loaded with no additional assistance from Sydney Furniture Hire staff. Therefore please ensure that a minimum of two people arrive to load larger/bulky/heavy items (for example, sofa, tv units, beds etc).
It is the hirer's responsibility to ensure furniture is securely tied down and fastened in the truck/van/vehicle during transportation of the styling items.
