About the Opportunity

We often take the things that we find in our homes for granted. But the simple fact is that those things are what turn a few walls and a roof into a home for someone. A fact that Ian and Annie Stewart knew all too well when, in 1995, they decided to start 1st Choice Rentals.
As veterans in the household equipment rental industry,they came up with a different vision; by employing their industry expertise and know-how, they would create an equipment rentals business that would call upon the very essence of the industry: convenience and ease.
1st Choice Rentals’ brand ethos is simple: putting customers first. This philosophy has been the driving force behind from a small single location at Campbelltown NSW to what has now become a serious business with 9 locations across Australia. In true commitment to their vision, Ian and Annie have maintained a strong family orientation within the business, which exists to make their customers’ lives better.

History

Ian Stewart is a veteran of the household goods rental industry. He brings with him, years upon years of expertise in Credit Management and has worked with some of the biggest names in the goods rental business such as Radio Rentals and Rentlo. Ian is also a founding member of CHERPA (The Consumer Household Equipment Rental Providers Association Inc.) and currently serves as Vice President for the peak body representing the interests of Australia’s household goods rental industry.

In the early 90s after a long stint with Rentlo as Credit Manager, Ian and his partner Annie ventured on their own and founded a Mercantile Agency providing debt collection services for all major providers of goods rental services in the Sydney metropolitan area. With Ian managing the legwork and Annie deploying her in-house managerial expertise, they soon found success.

A few years later, an opportunity presented itself and the daring duo decided to buy out one of the companies they represented in the Campbelltown area. This went on to become 1st Choice Rentals, which today has a national presence across Australia.
With over 50 years of combined experience and over 20 acquisitions to their credit, there is simply no match for their expertise. Rest assured, if there is anything to be known about goods rentals, Ian and Annie have the subject covered.
