How to rent tech gadgets in Germany

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

The convenience and flexibility of renting technology devices have significantly surged in popularity across Germany in recent years, especially across expats.

The cost of buying new technology products can be a strain on your budget. It can be further stressful to upgrade your technology every year if you are a technology enthusiast. It is at these times that renting can prove useful.

Why rent?

Upgrade easily

Get the latest tech products and stay up-to-date. Before your outdated tech starts collecting dust, send it back and rent something that's modern.

Stay uncommitted

Simple monthly payments and flexible plans that you can extend at any time - without the hassle and commitment of financing.


Grover allows you to rent all the technology you need for a monthly fee. You don't have to worry about high upfront costs or years of financing. Grover claims to let you rent without worrying about the ownership.

How does renting with Grover work?

Select your desired product at and simply order it online for rent.

Please note that a pre-order or an order for a desired date is not yet possible in Grover.

The process goes like this:

  1. Choose your minimum rental period of 1, 3, 6, or 12 months. You can switch to a longer term at any time and save.

  2. Add your product in the basket, create a customer account and pay for the first month of rental.

  3. Your device will be delivered to your home and billed monthly from the delivery date. The rental period begins once you receive your device.

  4. After your minimum term has expired, you can continue to rent your device or end the rental by returning it free of charge. A purchase is also possible at any time.

You can rent tech devices with Grover in many online shops and branches of Grover's retail partners in Germany. MediaMarkt, Saturn, Gravis, Expert are some examples.

How does renting with partners in store work?
  • You can rent many products with Grover in MediaMarkt, SATURN, GRAVIS, Expert, Conrad, COMSPOT, and BetterWorx stores throughout Germany.

  • Choose the device you want to rent and speak to an employee at the partner store. They can help you create a Grover account if you don't already have one. Then select your minimum rental period, make the first rental payment, and then you can take the product home.

  • When your minimum rental period ends, you can return the product to Grover for free by printing the shipping label and sending it back to Grover. You don't need to go back to the store.

Is a credit check required in store?

When you rent from one of the Grover partners in the store, they conduct an automatic credit check on CRIF Bürgel and Schufa.

Documents required for in store rentals

Take your ID or passport, credit card or PayPal access, and smartphone so that the employee in the store can verify your identity.

If either the identity or credit checks are negative, Grover may not allow the store to create a rental agreement. For privacy purposes, the exact reason for rejection is also not specified.
