General FAQs


How does furniture rental with CORT work?

The CORT Furniture Rental process is designed to be as easy and painless for you as possible. We will handle as much or as little as you want, always with our CORT Commitment™ in mind.

Step 1: Choose your location and how long you'd like to rent.
Step 2: Select your furniture.
Step 3: Place your order on or in your local showroom.
Step 4: Schedule your delivery.
Step 5: When you are done renting, call and schedule a pickup.


Does CORT offer a subscription service?

Subscribe to Furniture On Your Terms™. Furniture rental with CORT enables you to opt-in, swap, opt-out, return and purchase, so your furniture doesn’t own you.


With furniture on your terms you can enjoy the freedom to move when you need to, or just change it up when you want to. When your situation changes, embrace life's opportunities without letting furniture weigh you down.

Should I rent or buy?

If you’re unsure of your next move, or just don’t want to be tied down to owning furniture right now, Furniture On Your Terms lets you rent based on your situation. It’s all up to you!


When you’re ready, you can purchase from one of our CORT Furniture Outlets where you have access to high-quality gently used furniture at very affordable prices.

What are CORT's minimum requirements for renting

CORT has a monthly minimum requirement that will vary depending on a combination of 2 factors: the location you are renting your furniture from (NYC is more expensive than Roanoke, VA) and how long you would like to rent (the longer you rent the lower the monthly minimums). Your shopping cart will include a notification if you have not met the minimum requirement for your order.

Can I buy my furniture at the end of my lease?

Sure! CORT offers you the option to buy your furniture once your original lease term has expired. While your monthly payments are not put toward your purchase price, CORT will offer the furniture to you at a discounted price.

Does CORT rent furniture for less than 1 month?

CORT's minimum lease term is one month for both residential and workplace furniture rental. However, if you have a shorter-term need, our CORT Events division may be able to help you.

Does CORT rent single pieces of furniture?

Yes, but monthly minimum requirements may apply.

Do you offer Renters Insurance? If Yes, what does it cover? What is CORT's Customer Protection Plan?

CORT offers a Customer Protection Plan that covers you from damage or loss due to fire, flood, tornado and earthquake. The Customer Protection Plan also covers up to $250 in damages to the furniture.


It does not cover damage or loss caused by theft, disappearance, gross negligence, misuse or abuse (including damage by cigar or cigarette burns and pets).

Do I have to pay for CORT's Customer Protection Plan when I have renter’s insurance?

You can request a 'Certificate of Insurance' (COI) listing CORT as an additional insured or a "Loss Payee" on your renters’ insurance. Otherwise it is an automatic charge added to your monthly payment.

Is CORT's website secure?

Yes. CORT protects your personal information and will not share it with third parties. Our secure servers protect your information using advanced encryption and firewall technology throughout the ordering process. No personal credit card information is ever stored on CORT's servers.

Rent for Home


Does CORT only rent brand new furniture?

CORT's Furniture Rental inventory may have been previously rented by other customers. We purchase millions of dollars in new furniture every year, moving furniture no longer in showroom condition to our Furniture Outlets. With a heightened emphasis on safety, our product care, cleaning and maintenance help ensure that every piece of furniture we deliver to you is clean, sanitized and in showroom condition, or we won't rent it!


Our furniture rental model keeps more greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, so when you rent or buy from CORT, you’re making the world a little greener. Renting extends the life of every piece, keeping more furniture out of landfills and reducing the amount of greenhouse gas produced.

What if I am unhappy with the furniture delivered?

If you are unhappy with any of the furniture delivered, let us know within one week of delivery and we will exchange it for you.

What if something is not available at the time of delivery?

If something you ordered is not available, we will call you to discuss substitution options. You can exchange the substituted item after your original selection is back in stock at no additional charge.

Does CORT rent housewares and appliances?

Yes! CORT offers housewares packages containing all the items you'll need for your kitchen, bathroom and bedroom so your place is ready to move in - all you need is a toothbrush!


We also rent electronics, including TVs and major appliances like refrigerators, washers, dryers and microwaves.

What is a Move-in Ready™ package?

The Move-in-Ready package is designed to help you furnish your entire home with a few simple clicks. Just select your preferred package and our team of expert designers will select the furniture for your living room, dining room and bedroom. We can even deliver and set up your furniture before you arrive - leaving you to enjoy your new furnishings hassle-free.

What is in a Student or Military Package?

CORT's Student and Military packages are similar to our Move-in Ready packages but are created with the built-in discounts that we offer students and active duty military personnel. Each package consists of a living room, dining room and bedroom set of showroom-condition pieces. CORT offers three different package options to suit your individual space and lifestyle needs.

If I don't need all of the pieces in a furniture package, does the monthly rate change?

No. However, we are able to make limited substitutions if your space or lifestyle needs require different pieces in a given package.

  • The lease holder has received change-of-station orders 75 miles or more from the warehouse that delivered the lease.
  • The lease holder is discharged, released from, retires, or separates from the military.

CORT's student package pricing is available to students accepted to college, enrolled in college, parents renting for college students, or faculty and staff with a valid ID, proof of enrollment, or proof of employment from a college, university or career school.

I am a student, but the credit card I am using is in my parent's name. Whose name should I put the Lease under?

The lease should be in the name of the person paying the monthly invoice. If you are using a credit card with your parent's name on it, the lease should be put under that name.

I have roommates. How many names can be on a lease?

Typically, we will only put one name on a Lease. If you need to put more than one name on a Lease, please contact your local CORT showroom.

What is CORT's Student Referral Program?

Grade A: Showroom condition, rental quality. Offered for sale when overstocked.
Grade B: Near Showroom condition. This furniture does not meet our high rental standards. A great value in the CORT Outlet!
Grade C: Minor, but noticeable imperfections. The greatest Value!
Grade D: Noticeable wear and tear. The lowest price on very serviceable furniture!
