Should You Buy Or Rent Designer Bags?

Feb 1, 2008
Designer bags can often cost an arm and a leg but despite the pricey tags on these bags, many women absolutely love and go gaga over them. There are currently several sites that offer rental services on designer bags giving women who can't afford to purchase these expensive designer bags a chance to use one. So, you think with rental services made available should you buy or rent designer bags?

The answer really depends on what you basically want or look for in a designer bag. If you like collecting and owning them in your closet plus you get the thrill of picking out one from the variety of shapes, colors and sizes to match with your ensemble, then buying them would be ideal. On the other hand if you only have a limited budget and would want a different designer bag for every outfit that you will be wearing, then renting should be an option.

The practice of renting handbags is a relatively new idea. There are several websites offering designer bag rentals. If you want to be able to rent the designer bags that they offer, you first have to become a member of the site. There are certain membership levels and the handbags that you can rent will depend on which level of membership you choose. The higher the membership fees then the more designer bag choices you can have.

Depending on the site, the basic membership level will have access to a selection of about a hundred low name designers. Different websites may classify the various designers in a different manner, so it is ideal to look around and see the various designer bags various rental sites may list at each level before you choose the website to which you will make yourself a member of.

When you have selected a particular designer bag that you would want to rent, you make a request. The bag will have to be checked for availability and if it is, it will then be conveniently shipped to your doorstep. You can actually keep the bag for as long as you like for there is no minimum or maximum period that requires you to return the bag within that time. If you want to rent another bag, you simply have to return the current one that you have and they'll deliver the other designer bag that you have selected. Some membership levels can let you rent two or several bags at one time.

If you happen to have grown attached to a particular bag, you don't have to despair for can actually ask the rental site to give you a quote to buy and they'll provide you with an offer price for the designer bag based on the age of the bag, its condition as well as popularity.

What if you happen to spill something on the bag and it gets slightly damaged? You basically just have to send back the bag with an explanation note and they quote the cleaning cost. If you agree to the cleaning cost, they have it cleaned and you pay for it. Otherwise, if you are not agreeable with the price, then you have the option to purchase the bag in its current condition.
