Exclusive: Music Magpie expands rental service to tablets, MacBooks and consoles

Music Magpie chief executive Steve Oliver

Music Magpie is expanding its rental subscription service into a series of new product categories, including tablets, games consoles and Apple MacBooks.

The company, which specialises in reselling refurbished consumer technology, first introduced a smartphone rental subscription service in October 2020.

As of November last year, the service had 13,500 active subscribers – an increase from the 7,500 subscribers reported at the end of July last year. 

The popularity of smartphone rental has led to the expansion of the service, with Music Magpie now extending it to further consumer technology products as it continues its focus on reducing electronic waste.
