The Guild of Professional Estate Agents has launched a de-cluttering service with a difference.
Sellers using member firms such as Charles Eden can have their surplus furniture and belongings shipped off site and stored free for four weeks during marketing of their home
The concept was launched at the Guild’s annual conference, when members heard that the new de-clutter service includes free collection, free delivery and free storage for four weeks, operated by some of the country’s best known removals companies. These include Abels, Britannia, Doree Bonner International, Fox Moving and Storage, GB Liners, and White & Company.
Each client will be able to store selected belongings in a container up to 8ft by 7ft by 5ft, to help improve the appearance of a property and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
Geoff Watson, MD of Doree Bonner International, who revealed details of the scheme at the conference, said: “Together we have 1,050,000 sq ft of storage space – that’s the equivalent of 220 football pitches, which members’ clients can take advantage of.”
Marcus Whewell, CEO of the Guild, said: “We are delighted to be working with the most respected removals companies in the UK on this scheme, which is a fantastic service for our members to be able to offer to their clients.
“Our aim is to help people move, and this new initiative could be of significant assistance.
“It shows the commitment of professional estate agents to identifying new schemes and services which could really make the difference for their customers.”
Justin Flanagan MD of Charles Eden said ” This is a great new service we can offer clients when they market their property and they can also obtain removal quotes from some of the countries top firms by using a simple facility within our website – if you need a removals quote or want more information on the de-cluttering service simply visit http://www.charleseden.co.uk and choose the removals option from Our Services menu”
