"Technology has become a fundamental part of our daily lives and I think it is necessary for all of us to become aware of more sustainable and planet-friendly ways of using technology."

Garbiñe's tech selects
A laptop and tablet for post-match analysis and some audio gear for time at training (and chilling out), this is Garbiñe's Grover tech.

Grover rents new and as good as new products.

The first monthly rental payment is charged when ordering, but the rental period does not officially start until you receive your product. The delivery date determines the recurring monthly payment date. If you fall in love and want to keep your product longer than the minimum rental period, you can extend your rental plan in your customer account at any time to reduce the monthly payment. At the end of the minimum rental period, you can keep renting on a monthly basis for the same price or cancel your subscription by returning your device for free.
If something happens during your rental, Grover Care is there for you. We pay for 90% of the repair costs for damages of all kinds, including display breakage, water damage, and technical defects. Of course there are no charges for device errors from the manufacturer. Learn more about Grover Care
Don’t worry, we want you to enjoy your products as though they were yours. Small scratches and normal signs of use will be cleaned after return for free. In case of severe signs of wear, such as display breakage, Grover Care covers 90% of the repair costs. Here you'll find example photos of normal signs of use that we repair for free and also photos of more severe damage where you'd have to pay 10% of the repair cost.
If you want to keep a product, you don’t have to pay rent for the rest of your life. After a certain number of rental months, you can pay a symbolic one Euro to make it yours. The exact number of months depends on the product and your chosen minimum rental period, and will be displayed at checkout. You can find the number of months remaining until you can purchase the product in your customer account. There you also have the option to buy it earlier. But of course, you can always stay flexible and are not obliged to buy the product at any time. If you rented your device before July 17, 2019, the purchasing option displayed in your customer account applies.
