Live. Work. Celebrate.™
Committed to delivering our very best, every time, everywhere.
More than 40 years ago, CORT began with a single goal in mind: to deliver unparalleled customer service to people and businesses. We began with residential furniture rental in five regions across the United States and have grown to become the nation’s leading provider of transition services, including furniture rental for home and office, event furnishings, destination services, apartment locating, touring and other services. In addition to our 100+ offices, showrooms and clearance centers across the United States, we provide furniture rental in more than 80 countries around the globe.
Our team takes pride in providing world-class service in a very personal, customized way. We believe that the details matter, because it’s the little things that separate good from great. We believe that our customers, colleagues and partners deserve great. And we believe that great things come from an authentic commitment to delivering our very best, every time, everywhere.
Everything is possible through service.
"Everything is possible" denotes the expansive promise to reach higher than the ordinary and consider the extraordinary everyday. Everyone, each individual, holds potential to make things happen; everyone is empowered.
Our concept of "services" transcends CORT and the customer relationship to include – colleague-to-colleague, department-to-department, management to employee and your personal and professional aspirations.
Our mission at CORT is to be an indispensable resource to people and companies who are looking to make a house a home, an office a great place to work, and an event a memorable celebration.
We accomplish this by listening, learning, and providing exceptional value to our customers.
We empower our team to deliver an extraordinary customer experience, every time.

We embrace unique perspectives, fresh thinking and ingenuity that helps develop valuable solutions for our customers.
We respect our customers' needs and ambitions, understanding that their satisfaction is the greatest measure of our success.
We can be counted on to deliver with a profound sense of commitment to our customers and colleagues.
What We Believe
We believe that the details matter, because it's the little things that separate good from great.
We believe that our customers, colleagues and partners deserve great.
We believe that great things come from an authentic commitment to delivering our very best, every time, everywhere.
At CORT, we often find ourselves as a partner to clients and businesses at the intersection of “past and future.”
You’re involved in change, a complex project, a move across town or to a new city, a new job, an important milestone or event, and you need an experienced partner with a proven track record of success and perspective to help navigate the twists and turns that lie ahead.
Your success during these times of change and your achievements in the future rely upon hard work, dedication and execution. And we recognize that lasting success is not random; it’s the ability to perform time and time again when it’s crunch time, when we feel overwhelmed or overloaded, and it requires a deep commitment to providing a level of exceptional service in every way imaginable.
That’s why we believe that “everything is possible through service,” and that our success should be measured by your satisfaction. For over forty years, throughout the U.S. and abroad we’ve aspired to become an indispensable resource for you and your company and we stand ready to help you create a future that is truly extraordinary.
