I’m sure many of you have seen, heard, or know of someone that uses a business to decorate their home or business for the Christmas season. And if you haven’t…chances are someone you know uses a service like this. So, if you’ve heard or seen an advertisement for such a service, did any of them mention if you rent or own the lights? More than likely, you will only rent the lights, which may be good for some homeowners…but why would you only rent Christmas lights…when you can own them??
Quick, make a list of everything you rent.
…So, how many items were on that list? Probably zero (unless you’re leasing a car then maybe 1 or 2). Most of our clients own their homes…they don’t rent them. Many of them also own their lawn equipment…they don’t rent it (unless, of course, you use a lawn maintenance company). So why would you want to rent Christmas lights? It’s not much different. Now, if you know that you’re moving next year, or you know every year, except this one, that you’ll be on vacation during Christmas…then it might make sense to rent your Christmas lights. But even if you are moving next year…if you find a holiday decorating company that does not rent out Christmas lights, you can take them with you to your new location. Makes more sense then renting Christmas lights year after year, doesn’t it?
There are not many things that a homeowner rents, and Christmas lighting and decorations should be no different. First year costs will obviously be higher when you get to own the material, but subsequent years will typically be about half the price of the first year, which is competitive against renting lights year after year.
