On-demand services take the chore out of selling property

The process of auctioning a property can be a messy affair in more ways than one. Keeping your property clean and uncluttered is important from when you are first taking pictures, to when potential buyers come for viewings, right through to when the new owners move in. First impressions matter at every stage, and in this day and age, with people acquiring more stuff at an unprecedented rate, it can be hard to get things looking the way your potential buyers might consider ideal.
The classic solution to this is to find a local self-storage company and rent a room while the auctioning process is taking place. Using this process, property auctioneers can clear their space to make the necessary room needed. This allows them to focus on the task at hand while resting assured their possessions are safe and reasonably accessible.
However, if you’re a London-based seller, this can seem like more hassle than it’s worth. Traditional self-storage in London often involves renting a van or arranging some method of transport to get your items to and from the self-storage unit. Along with this, it easily becomes quite labour-intensive as you are required to lift and organise everything yourself. With everything else going on in this busy sales period, taking a day out of your weekend just to stick some old bits and bobs in a distant cupboard can almost seem unfair.
However, these obstacles have been eradicated by convenience services like on-demand storage, a relatively new concept offering people in London a self-storage solution that comes to their door, and that they can manage online. Storage boxes are delivered, taken away and stored, and an inventory allows users to recall things with a click of a button. Professionals manage all aspects of the transportation and organization, so they’ll do all of the moving and lifting. Add to this the fact that you only pay for the space you take up (you’re charged by the box rather than the room), and that insurance is built into the bargain, and it becomes as much a cost-saving option as one that will ease your time constraints.
Leading the way in this relatively new sector is Boxman, a self-storage facility in Southwark that serves the whole of London. If it sounds like something that you could use, click on: London storage. From there, simply fill in your postcode, and your boxes will be with you within hours – time saved that you could be using on more productive things.
