Consider the planet: rent rather than own!
Make an eco-responsible contribution by renting NEW furniture from Move & Rent. At contract’s end, all of your furniture is given a second life thanks to our network of partners. This is the circular economy’s key principle.
In France and beyond, the transition to a circular economy is officially recognised as one of the key objectives of the green revolution and one of the commitments to sustainable development. That is why, at Move and Rent, we have been implementing a true functional economy since 2012: in other words, prioritising rental and reuse over ownership, selling a service rather than a good. But we go even further because, at contract’s end, all our furniture has a second life through our network of partners. We have designed and manage our services with a commitment to zero waste. Because the future of our planet matters. Because every action counts. Because we are all involved: citizens, communities, companies, associations, administrations and R&D participants throughout the region.

Some concrete examples:
Sophie is HR Manager at a consulting company
"Our employees are regularly called upon to work remotely on customer assignment and for a fixed period of absence from home.
It is often difficult for employees to find their bearings and feel at home in an unfamiliar environment. Housing them is one of our primary concerns. Renting NEW furniture with Move and Rent appears to be an ideal alternative solution to enhance the employee’s well-being during his\\her assignment.
Together with our employee, we choose a vacant home and rent his\her furniture during the assignment. All without any constraints entailing purchase or moving, whilst adopting an eco-responsible approach that conforms our CSR policy."For more information
Tom, a student studying in Marseille, is currently on an internship in Lille
"I am a student and, as part of a six-month internship, I have to go to Lille. I have to move all my furniture to my new apartment in Lille. To do this, I would therefore have to make two round trips:
- One round trip for delivery (Marseille-Lille then return to Lille-Marseille with an empty load)
- One round trip to bring back my furniture (Lille-Marseille then Marseille - Lille with an empty load)
If I rent a 12 m³ moving van, the combined journeys will release 1.12 tonnes of atmospheric CO2 . Thanks to its local delivery service, Move and Rent both delivers quickly and only releases 0.01 tonnes of atmospheric CO2! Environmental considerations aside, I save a lot of time and money by using Move & Rent. The choice was obvious: I use Move and Rent to help protect the planet!"Rent my furniture
Marion is in charge of marketing and property development
"Thanks to its rental of NEW furniture solution, Move and Rent allows us to bring a real ambiance to our model homes. Delivered to vacant premises, a house is then transformed into a home. The furniture is delivered, assembled and taken back at the end of the rental contract. There are many advantages for us: no furniture to buy, no logistics, no stock.
In short, a service that offers us real freedom and relieves us of the need to monitor different kinds of supplier, avoid wasting energy on logistical coordination and allows us to meet deadlines without sacrificing quality. At the end of the contract, all the furniture and decorative items have a second life. Move and Rent is a partner that is part of our CSR approach."Designing a model home

Renting NEW furniture from Move and Rent is an eco-responsible environmental solution.
Do you have endless questions about our planet’s future? What are the solutions to protect the environment? How can we be productive whilst being eco-responsible? What actions should we take to protect our environment? Recycling, restoring, reusing, limiting waste,... All of this is already well-known to you. In short, you are either committed to protecting the planet or want to be, you are ecologically aware and you want to opt for intelligent and therefore responsible consumption.
Since its founding in 2012, Move and Rent has made the choice to offer its customers, individuals and companies, a service that includes a new way of consuming: responsible and intelligent consumption. For several years now, Move and Rent has been thinking of the planet by inviting its BtoC and B2B customers to favour rental and reuse over ownership by choosing to rent NEW furniture from Move and Rent. This is called the functional economy.
How does furniture rental from Move and Rent use the functional economy to promote a sustainable development approach?
The obvious question is: what is the functional economy? In fact, it's simple. The functional economy consists of offering or selling a service to individuals, companies or regions based on rental and reuse rather than ownership or purchase of a good itself. The aim is therefore to replace the sale of a good or product with the implementation of an integrated rental solution in a sustainable development approach.
Via this approach, the objective of Move and Rent is to make the product last longer in order to reduce waste. Thus, by offering NEW furniture for rent, Move and Rent operates a functional economy based business model. NEW furniture is first rented and then offered back to the market for reuse at the rental period’s end using the circular economy system.
Move and Rent uses this innovative circular economy based business model by giving furniture a second life at the rental contract’s end.
In France and beyond, the transition to a circular economy is officially recognised as one of the key objectives of the green revolution and one of the commitments to sustainable development. That is why, at Move and Rent, we have created a true circular economy, the circular furniture economy, since all our furniture at contract’s end has a second life thanks to our network of partners. We have designed and operate our services with a zero waste, zero wasteful consumption approach. Since its founding, and in response to current socio-environmental challenges, Move and Rent has been operating a circular economy based strategy using concepts and values based on eco-responsibility and community spirit.
In concrete terms, how does the circular furniture economy work at Move & Rent? First of all, the customer, whether he\she is an individual, a company, a property developer etc, can use the NEW furniture rental service Move and Rent. As a recap, Move and Rent offers furniture from studio up to five bedroom apartments for furniture rental periods from one month up to a year. There is no stock, no warehouse: a true just-in-time logistics operation. Then, the furniture is delivered, assembled and installed at the customer's premises, observing short delivery times and reducing CO2 emissions and carbon footprint as much as possible during transportation using only local service providers. At contract end, the furniture is collected by our teams.
This is where the notion of zero waste and no wasteful consumption comes into play, since furniture at contract end is given a second life thanks to our network of partners. This does not stop there since Move and Rent regularly makes donations of furniture to associations such as Emmaus or the French Red Cross. Accordingly, in addition to carrying out actions in favour of the environment, Move and Rent is committed to people in need by contributing to the community
At Move & Rent, the circular business economy is also integrated into its strategy towards a green economy.
Companies are also provided for at Move & Rent. Companies which use the Move & Rent NEW furniture rental service are seeking solutions to professional mobility problems. An employee is assigned to a project for a fixed period of time away from home, the company can then rent his\her furniture for the project’s duration and all without any purchase or storage requirements. Another example: a company wants to rent its office furniture to provide a pleasant working environment its employees. Once again Move & Rent is a practical, unconstrained solution offering impeccable service to companies. All of this is always done, of course, with a circular economy approach so that all corporate furniture is given a second life. In this way, Move and Rent fits perfectly into companies' CSR strategies and supports companies in this process.
The Move & Rent business model is geared towards a green economy for all economic participants and their stakeholders.
By offering furniture for rent, Move & Rent helps to reduce waste. Preferring rental and reuse to ownership is also environmentally friendly since Move & Rent offers a furniture rental service and thereby avoids the environmental problems associated with furniture purchase. Finally, Move & Rent gives a second life to all furniture at the rental contract’s end. Furniture items are either distributed within our network of partners or donated to charities as a contribution to the community. In short, a business model focused on the circular and functional economies.
