     On April 27, 2005, Aaron Rents, Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release
to announce its financial results for the first quarter of 2005. A copy of the
press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.

     This press release presents earnings per share ("EPS") information
excluding a gain from the 2004 sale of the Company's holdings of Rainbow
Rentals, Inc. stock, and provides reconciling information to EPS measures
including the gain.

     Management believes that presentation of EPS measures excluding the gain is
useful because it allows investors and management to evaluate and compare the
Company's core operating results from ongoing operations from period to period
in a more meaningful and consistent manner than relying exclusively on GAAP
financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures however should not be considered
in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures calculated and presented
in accordance with GAAP.

     As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted
in the United States.

     The information in this Report, including the Exhibit attached hereto, is
furnished solely pursuant to Item 2.02 of this Form 8-K. Consequently, it is not
deemed "filed" for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section. It may only be
incorporated by reference in another filing under the Exchange Act or Securities
Act of 1933 if such subsequent filing specifically references this Form 8-K.
