What our customers say about us

Riva Rentals is een professioneel bedrijf waar duidelijke regels en afspraken zijn voor de huurder als verhuurder. Het is best spannend je huis ineens onder te verhuren met alle spullen voor een lange reis. Met Riva Rentals hebben wij het vertrouwen dat we niet een uitgewoond huis terug krijgen. Ze maken overal foto's van, berekenen meterstanden en ze staan garant voor problemen. De personen die willen huren worden door hen eerst gescreend. Ook voor hen zijn er duidelijke regels en is er veel hulp vanuit Riva Rentals. Zo worden beide partijen helemaal tevreden gesteld. Al met al ontzettend veel hulp en hele vriendelijke mensen. Eerlijkheid duurt het langst. Als je verhuurmakelaar zoekt? Top bedrijf!
