About Mr Rental:

How the death of the video store gave birth to Mr Rental.

These days Mr Rental might be a well known franchise group with rental stores throughout Australia and New Zealand, but our origins were far humbler.

Mr. Rental

It all began in 1983, when founders Glen and Kerrianne Hickman started renting out TVs and VCRs (remember those?) from their video store in Brisbane. In no time entertainment rentals were outstripping videos, so sensing they were on to something, Glen and Kerrianne went ahead and opened their first Mr Rental in 1991.

In 2001 they introduced a franchising model with the vision of becoming 'the world's first choice in home appliance renting', by providing their customers with truly great service, flexible rental options, easy ways to pay, speedy delivery and free installation.

The formula worked. Today, Mr Rental has over 50 stores on both sides of the Tasman, renting out home appliances, furniture and office equipment, to thousands of satisfied customers.

Here's where you can discover more about why rent, and why you should rent with Mr Rental.

We say 'yes you can' to the community too. We like to get involved in the areas we operate in by supporting local events, sporting teams and various charities.

So what are you waiting for?
