Fabrento, the online furniture rental start-up, has rolled out a new service called FabEvents where users can lease furniture for events payable per day, across the country. The company rents out furniture like sofas, chairs and decors, and this service comes with delivery and set up, relocation, cleaning and maintenance and swaps, free of cost.
Depending on the furniture requirement, the price range for renting of furniture may vary from Rs 200 to Rs 20,000 per day. According to Fabrento, FabEvents services are extended to banquet halls, 5 Star hotels, conference, stage set ups, wedding and anniversaries. Fabrento also rents out furniture to other event management companies.
Fabrento also has a “rent to buy” facility, which allows a user to buy a product they have rented from the company at a discounted price.
