Member Qualifications: The IFRA is the only trade association exclusively serving the furniture rental industry.

Membership is open to any company interested in the health of the furniture rental industry practices and IFRA’s principles. All applicants for regular membership must:

BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
Through its Washington legislative office, IFRA acts vigorously on a year- round basis to inform Congress and the executive agencies of the association's position on issues affecting the furniture rental industry. Our success in this area has resulted in substantial savings for all furniture rental companies.
Regulation Compliance Guides:
Whenever the government adopts new regulations that affect furniture lessors, IFRA issues a report that helps unravel the verbal mysteries and informs members about how the rules affect them - in dollars and cents, in "do's and don'ts." These reports are updated as necessary.
IFRA Membership/Referral Directory:
All IFRA members receive a comprehensive membership directory which lists their companies alphabetically and geographically by city and state, showing the headquarters office and branch showrooms of each. The Directory also contains the names, titles and phone numbers of all key personnel at the main location. Associate Member companies are listed separately, along with the products and services offered by each. The Directory is an invaluable aid in contacting or referring business to other members, and vice versa.
Certificate of Good Standing:
All due-paying members are eligible to receive a certificate of good standing from IFRA. This asserts membership and agreement to the Code of Ethics. This certificate can be displayed at the place of business and digitally.
