How did Home Essentials become the World’s Most Popular Furniture Rental Company?
“During a vacation to Singapore, I met an expatriate couple on assignment. They relayed their frustration in having to report to the IRS as income the $5,000 they received from their company to purchase a television and other electronic appliances. The couple believed it unfair they had to purchase these items because the voltage in Singapore is incompatible with the phases used in the U.S. At that point, I asked why their company didn’t just rent those items. It was then that I learned that there was no place in Singapore to rent electronics and appliances.”
That chance exchange initiated the concept for Home Essentials.
