About Us

Castle Furniture has been serving the furniture rental needs here in Arizona since 1992.  We have grown from a small 1,000 sq.ft. warehouse in Scottsdale with 1 employee and a rented U-haul truck to over 70,000 sq.ft. of warehousing and offices, 20 employees and 10 large delivery trucks.

It actually all happened by accident.  Back in 1992, our founder was the broker of Apartment Masters, (a local apartment locating firm) having offices in Scottsdale, Mesa, and Tempe.  The firm assisted individuals and businesses who needed expertise in locating unfurnished and furnished condos as well as short-term apartment rentals in the Phoenix metro area.  In those days there were very few quality accommodations for short term living.  We had customers wanting nicely furnished vacation rentals, but nowhere to send them.

There was only one solution… buy furniture and furnish apartments and sublease.  So that is exactly what we did.  Within three years our real estate brokerage was also renting 75 fully outfitted apartments with our own furnishings, accessories, and housewares.  We ended up selling off the apartment locating division and within a few years expanded to renting over 1,000 furniture packages.

Since those early days, we have continued to grow, developed new and exciting furniture packages, and have become the preferred vendor to many corporate housing providers in Arizona.  We are not bogged down by rules mandated by a large corporation.  We “do our own thing”. If any of our customers are in a bind, we do whatever it takes to help and deliver or pick up for emergencies.

How can we provide a package that is so complete at a price that is a fraction of our competitors?

Well, we do a lot of the work in-house. We have our own commercial laundromat and restaurant-style dish washing facility. We buy all the artwork from the art publishers and frame it ourselves in our own stand-alone frame shop.  We even make our own mattresses to the most rigid specifications in our own in-house mattress plant and own our trucks debt-free. Equally important, we don’t need to answer to shareholders of a publicly traded company who might put stockholder concerns above those of the customers.  Consider all that, and no wonder we can price our packages at a fair price.

Castle Furniture is large enough to handle any furniture rental order that has come our way, but we value every customer including those outfitting an apartment for the winter season here in the Valley.  Our client list represents a “who’s who” of customers including spring training baseball teams, football players, golf tournaments, auto auctions and major corporation events.  We are very busy  during the peak weeks from December 26 through early February, since we deliver nearly 50 furniture packages per week during that time.

Our customers typically rent a complete furniture and housewares package.  We deliver and set up all the furniture along with the artwork, kitchen appliances, bathroom necessities, towels, bedding, vacuum, televisions, DVD player, and basically everything that is required to turn a vacant apartment into a home.

While most of our customers are here in the Metro-Phoenix and Scottsdale area, we service the entire State of Arizona.  We send a truck or two to Tucson nearly every day and have many accounts in Flagstaff.  A few of our other regularly serviced areas include Prescott, Sedona, Cottonwood, Bullhead City, Sierra Vista and Yuma.

What We Do

Our service is quite extensive; along with our professional home design, delivery and set-up, we do the following:

  • We provide the beds and linens and make them up!
  • We bring the kitchen wares and put them away!
  • We provide the towels and hang them on the towel bars!
  • We provide the TV we even preset the channels!
  • We bring the clock-radio and set the time—but not the alarm!
  • We supply the artwork and hang the pictures!
  • We not only bring the vacuum cleaner, we vacuum your floor!
  • We bring the iron & ironing board, but sorry, that’s where we draw the line; no ironing.

Perhaps you’re in the process of moving or just temporarily relocating for business or an extended vacation. Whatever your situation, we’re here to help make your time renting in Arizona as stress-free as possible. Once you’ve decided on a home or apartment to rent, we’ll be there to help with all the heavy lifting.
