Questions about the end of the term of the rental agreement
What happens at the end of the term
FlexiRent will contact you in writing at least 3 months before the end of term to explain your end of term options. This will be a prompt for you to think about what you would like to do with the rented goods, and also whether you would like to upgrade to new goods or not.
The most important thing is to contact us to nominate an end of term option prior to the end of your rental agreement. If you do not contact us, and you don’t return the goods to us, your rental agreement will continue on a month-to-month basis and you will continue to be charged a monthly rental payment.
What are the end of term options?
Offer to Purchase: If you would like to own the leased goods, you can make us an offer to purchase them. You can offer any price but we have the right to accept or reject your offer*.
Return: You can return the goods if you no longer want them. Goods can be returned to any of our warehouse locations listed in the table below. Goods must be returned in good working order, together with all accessories and manuals at your own expense.
*All options are subject to our Agreement and our standard terms and conditions.
Who can I contact to discuss my end of term options?
Call the FlexiRent Customer Team on 1800 240 102 to discuss your end of term options.
Who pays for the courier if I opt to return the goods?
If you elect to return the goods, this is at your expense.
Can I end my rental agreement early?
Yes. Your options are the same as the end of term options described above.
Do I own the rented goods at the end of the rental agreement?
No, you do not own the goods. You can make us an offer to purchase the goods at the end of term of the rental agreement. You can offer any price, but we can choose to accept or reject your offer. If we accept your offer to purchase the goods, then we will transfer title in the goods to you.
What happens if I don’t choose an end of term option?
If you don’t return the goods to us or choose an end of term option at the end of the rental term, the rental agreement will defer to a month-to-month arrangement. Monthly payments will continue as set out on the signature page, until the goods are either returned to us or you choose an end of term option.
Questions about payments
How do I pay for FlexiRent?
Your monthly rental payments will be debited from your nominated bank or credit card account. If you chose to pay by credit card an administration fee applies. You can choose the best day of the month for that debit (for example – the day after payday).
Can I choose my payment date?
Yes. You can choose which day of the month you wish to have your rental payments debited from your nominated bank or credit card account. If you want to take the goods home with you straight away and wish to select a future payment date, no worries, we’ll just pro-rata the payment between the date of delivery and your chosen payment date. An ‘interim payment’ will be payable.
How do I change my payment details?
Call the FlexiRent Customer Team on 1800 240 102.
What happens if I can’t make a rental payment?
You should contact the FlexiRent Customer Team immediately on 1800 240 102 and make an arrangement with us. Under the FlexiCare Program, you may be eligible for a waiver of your payment obligations in the event of involuntary unemployment, disablement, terminal illness or death.
