The Mr Rental story began in 1983 when founders Glen and Kerrianne Hickman moved to Bribie Island, north of Brisbane, in Queensland, Australia.
Together they opened a video library and rented TVs and VCRs as a complementary service. In no time, the home entertainment rentals were outstripping videos and by 1991 they had opened their first Mr Rental store.
For 10 years, this enterprising husband and wife team built their business in their local community, developing and optimising operations and systems.
In 2001 they took the bold move to start franchising, with a vision for Mr Rental to become “the world's first choice in home appliance renting”.
Within two years they had over 30 stores in Australia and New Zealand, renting home appliances, furniture and office equipment to thousands of happy customers.
Today the Mr Rental group services thousands of customers in Australia and New Zealand, with a product offering that encompasses the latest in climate control, computers, fitness, furniture, gaming consoles, audio visual systems, phones and kitchen and laundry appliances.
Glen and Kerrianne remain Mr Rental Board members and their original vision holds true: the customer comes first.
Mr Rental stores take an active role in their local communities, supporting local events, sporting teams and various charities.
The Mr Rental network’s charity of choice is the Cancer Council in Australia and the Cancer Society in New Zealand.
Each year stores take part in the Biggest Morning Tea, Daffodil Day and Relay for Life, and this year proudly donated an astonishing $100,000 to the Cancer Council.
Raising money for cancer research has special meaning for franchisees and team members within the Mr Rental community, as many have been affected by cancer, either personally or through friends and family.
