Buying Furniture on Lease/Rent-to-Own – Know the Cost

For people with poor credit who feel the need to buy furniture – but do not want to save for their purchase – there are a number of lease/rent-to-own furniture stores in the Toronto area that are willing to do business. Normally, they do not require credit checks or down payments, although they usually want some proof of income.

If you agree to enter into a lease/rent-to-own agreement with them – they will take great pains to explain to you how much you will be paying over the length of the agreement. Unfortunately, even these careful explanations of how much it is going to cost – do not deter many people.

In an effort to show how much more these eager buyers are paying by using comparisons.

We did a small, online investigation:

We found a sofa/love seat combination available at a Toronto lease/rent-to-own store for weekly payments of $15 for 156 weeks (3 years) which works out to $2340 + Taxes.

Doing a quick check online we found the same sofa/love seat combination available online in Ontario locations for a purchase price of $1079 + Taxes.

Both of these companies offer free shipping, warrantees and guarantees.

Lease/Rent-to-own Sofa/Love Seat $2340 + 304.20 (Taxes) = $2644.20

Online Purchase Sofa/Love Seat $1079 + 140.27 (Taxes) = $1219.27

So – how much extra would our lease/rent-to-own customer pay in this case?

an Extra $1,424.93 for the same sofa/love seat combination!

They would be paying:

132% interest over 3 years

44% interest per year

Another thing to consider – in our search we found one of the lease/rent-to-own companies selling what they claim to be a new, exact same sofa/love seat combination for $899.00 + 116.78 (Tax) = $1015.78 – in an online classified ad.

How much extra would our lease/rent-to-own customer pay in this case?

an Extra $1628.42 for the same sofa/love seat combination!

They would be paying:

181% interest over 3 years

60% interest per year

And if all of that is not enough – until that last 156th payment is made – the lease/rent-to-own company still owns the sofa and love seat.

So before you sign on the dotted line – please, think about it.

Christine Sylver was very helpful to my situation. No question asked, she went above and beyond just to give me the options that I need to solve my problems. She explained and made me understand my options. Thank you Christine! Everything was done in a week. Regards, to Richard Sklar for explaining everything further to me. 😊
I was blown away by how kind and empathetic Christine and David were. I came into the process expecting to feel embarrassed, but they were so helpful and unquestionably supportive, they made the whole experience a positive thing. On top of that, Christine found a solution for me that was better than I ever could have imagined. I highly recommend Christine, David, and colleagues to anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Jackie and she made the experience very easy and was very honest which I appreciated as I was extremely nervous to go through with the process. Any questions or concerns I've had after our meetings were answered no problems and although it's been a few weeks I can honestly say I've never felt so stress-free. Very thankful for Jackie.

My mother told me about this firm because they helped resolve her situation nearly 25 years ago. I had the pleasure of working with Christine Sylver. I should’ve done this years ago but I am where I am and it is what it is. Extremely courteous, professional and understanding. I hope to never need their services again but they would be my first call! A+
