Young professionals are the go getters, hungry for success, restless, travelling across the world and are ambitious like never before.

These are in the age group 21-28, highly qualified and consider the world as their oyster. Given the opportunities offered across India and overseas, these professionals often have to relocate from their home town to a new city for few months or years for either higher professional studies or for professional projects.

Till a few years ago, this used to be a huge problem since moving to a new city would mean giving up the luxurious lifestyle at home and making do with bare basics in the new city. Since these professionals were never sure of the tenure of the project in the new city and also given the hassles involved in buying and then selling coupled with prohibitively high buying costs of lifestyle products, buying these lifestyle products would seldom make sense.
However, the last few years have witnessed a tremendous growth in sharing economy, thus ensuring that these young professionals can also enjoy a good lifestyle with the best amenities.

Several companies which offer trendy furniture and branded appliances to these professionals at the click of a mouse along with hi-end cameras and Water and Air Purifiers, with many more categories being planned for launch starting 2018.

Consider a real life example of IT professional who has just relocated from his home town to a new city like Gurgaon or Hyderabad for a few months or years for a project or a short term assignment. He/ She can easily find an apartment on rent, but the whole hassle of looking for furniture and appliance shops in a new city, bargaining for prices, paying up, transporting, installing and then later selling these products and shipping them out after a few months when it is time to move cities was a huge issue keeping them from enjoying a good lifestyle.

With companies providing such services, these professionals can now enjoy the best lifestyle by renting outa variety of trendy, well designed beds, comfortable new mattresses, functional wardrobes of various sizes,a large variety of fabric and wooden sofas sets, dining sets, study and bedside tables, chairs, book shelves, comfortable automatic recliners, egg swings and even branded hi end appliances like TVs, Microwaves, Washing Machines, air and water purifiers, DSLR cameras etc.

The icing on the cake is that these products are available for as low as 2-3 % of the buying price of these products on monthly rental subscription basis, thus enabling these professionals to enjoy enhanced lifestyles at an extremely low cost. Add to that complimentary maintenance offered by the company and free home delivery, and this is a dream come true for the young client. One just has to select products of ones choice, order on line, upload documents and the company delivers products at home within 2 to 4 days. Appliances are sourced from the best brands along with brand assured warranty.
