Outright Purchase or Rental?

posted Jul 14, 2009, 9:04 AM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Mar 12, 2011, 9:20 AM ]

The choice very much depends on your choice of ownership, servicing and budget. 

  • Ownership
Outright purchase lets you have ownership of the Coway unit immediately whilst under the rental scheme, the unit will only be yours after completing a 5 year rental period. Should you decide to terminate the rental after completing the minimum rental period of 2 years, the unit will have to be returned to Coway.
  • Servicing
The outright purchase option comes with complimentary membership of 1 year. Upon expiry of the 1 year period, you are highly recommended to subscribe to membership servicing.

The rental option already includes membership servicing where our friendly Coway Lady or Service Technician will provide regular servicing every 2 months throughout the entire rental period.
  • Budget
Comparing outright purchase and rental options over a period of 5 years, the rental option will cost just slightly more as compared to the outright purchase option, depending on which Coway model is being considered.

The rental option for Coway Petit will cost 26% or RM1400 more as compared to outright purchase with annual renewal of membership servicing, whilst Coway Mach will cost 31% or RM1600 more respectively.

Based on the above differences between outright purchase and rental options, it now depends on whether you want to commit to high initial payment under the outright purchase option or the more affordable low monthly rental.
