History
Radio Rentals Ltd was the result of a merger in 1964 between
two leading rental chains, Radio Rentals and Rentaset. Both companies had
their origins in the early days of radio when there was a ready market for radio
rental and relay services. Radio Rentals was founded by Mr. P. Perring-Toms, a
radio dealer in Brighton who was one of the first to foresee the potential market
for rented radio sets. Mr. Perring-Toms began renting out sets about 1930. By
1936 Radio Rentals had become a public company with about 50,000 rental
customers. In order to assure its supply of radio sets at a time when there were
restrictions on output, Radio Rentals acquired in 1945 Mains Radio Gramophone
Ltd, a manufacturing company in Yorkshire. Rentaset Ltd was at first
concerned chiefly with radio relay and developed from the relay business started
in 1930 by Mr. J. W. C. Robinson.

When television broadcasts were resumed after the war, Radio Rentals
was one of the first companies to concentrate on rental of television sets. Mains
Radio Gramophone began to develop production of television sets in 1948 and
changed its name to Baird Television Ltd. Rentaset, in common with other relay
companies, rewired its relay systems so that they could carry television programmes.
By 1952, Radio Rentals was well established as the largest company in
television rental business. In that year, Rentaset also began to develop television
rental business, having decided that there was a large potential demand for rented
sets which would enable it to expand beyond the geographical limitations of its
relay systems. In the 1950's, both companies rapidly increased the number of
their rental subscribers. In 1962 Radio Rentals acquired its Dawes retail division.

In 1964, Radio Rentals and Rentaset merged their interests. Growth in the
number of rental subscribers continued after the merger and in 1966 the Radio
Rentals group acquired the three year old Vista Rentals company.
