Tip: You have two options – either buy or rent a fridge.
Alternatively, you can rent a fridge for about $10-$15 a week. We rent our washer/dryer from Radio Rentals. You might choose to go the rental route if you aren’t planning on living here for very long or you don’t want to be responsible for repairs and such. Be warned though, most rental companies require three references here in Australia as well as paystubs/bank statements and the like. They won’t rent to you until they’ve followed up with all of your references (even if you’ve just recently been approved for multiple apartments and can clearly afford $10/week!)
