Treadmill Hire vs Buying Your Own Treadmill in Tasmania

Having a treadmill at home is a great way of improving your fitness and making it easier to achieve a more active lifestyle. Here at Health and Leisure, we sell and hire out treadmills to customers across Tasmania. We understand how each option suits different circumstances and needs. Below, we compare the two approaches so you can see what works best for you.

Finding the Right Product for You

Some people may know exactly what kind of treadmill they want to have at home, often down to the specific model. Most, however, are less sure and may need to try out different products until they find one that suits their needs or has the features they are looking for. Treadmill hire offers the flexibility to try out different products over time and switch out different models until you find one you like. 

A quick test of a display model usually isn’t enough. It can often take a few days to feel discomfort or decide a particular piece of equipment isn’t right for you. Alternatively, you might start off with a basic model and want to move on to a treadmill with additional features such as resistance and sled push for a higher-intensity workout.

Is Cost an Issue?

Buying a new treadmill can involve spending quite a bit of money. While for some customers, that’s not a big issue, others may reconsider when contemplating the investment required. For a beginner with a limited budget, a flexible short-term treadmill hire plan is a great option. Any customer who is unsure whether it’s right for them can benefit by eliminating the upfront investment and long-term commitment.

Service and Maintenance

Once you purchase a treadmill, you’re responsible for its servicing and maintenance, something that should occur every 12 months depending on hourly usage. When hiring a treadmill, the equipment is owned by the provider during the hire period. This means that if anything goes wrong with the machine, we will fix or replace the item as well as keep on top of any servicing and maintenance required. This ensures you’re covered and protected under a rental warranty.

Rent to Own for the Best of Both Worlds

There is also the option to rent to own your treadmill, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds. Try out a variety of different equipment at Health and Leisure. We offer options where you are not locked into buying the same equipment you hired either. You can take off up to 4 months worth of hire fees from any piece of cardio or home gym equipment we sell, excluding GST.
