Using Man & Van and Storage for Room Conversions and Home Improvements in London

Making some home improvements might be something you’ve thought about for a long time, and you’re finally ready to put a plan together. If your DIY project is a bit meatier and you’re looking to add or convert a room, you’ll need to have some reliable people in your corner. At Aussie Man & Van, we work with hundreds of customers every year who pick up their tools to improve their home.

Owning your own home is something a lot of people aspire to, especially in a city like London where the property isn’t cheap. That’s why many people look at affordable ways to upgrade their current home, rather than selling up and buying a larger property. It’s also possible to add value to your house in London, especially if you keep costs low by working with Aussie.

For anyone who is planning on putting their house or flat for sale in London in 2019, there are a few things that you might have to consider. London has a lot of new housing developments in the pipeline, which means fewer potential buyers for your property. Couple that with the gradual decline in property values in the capital and you could be faced with some tough decisions. When selling our home, the primary aim is to achieve the asking price without having to wait for months on end to sell.

There is one method that many people use to improve their chances of a timely sale. Home staging is a service that can improve the aesthetic appeal of a property that’s in preparation for viewings. There are professional home staging consultants, but it’s also possible to undertake the project yourself should you prefer to take control of the sale of your home. And to help you work out which option is more suitable, here are some tips on how to approach the presentation of your house or flat in London.

Part of the Solution – Aussie's New Fleet of ULEZ Removal's Vans

This year, London took a gigantic step towards becoming a capital city that is lowering its emission levels. Now, Central London has been designated as an Ultra Low Emissions Zone or ULEZ for short. All vehicles that enter the area that is already subject to the congestion charge now must also be ULEZ compliant. The standards differ depending on vehicle age and type, so you should read up to see if this affects your car, motorbike or van.

At Aussie Man & Van, we are all too aware that the level of pollution in our city has reached a tipping point. Although this measure will have an impact on businesses like ours, it’s something that we fully back. To ensure that Aussie moves in the right direction, we are putting ten brand-new removals vehicles on the road with immediate effect. We plan to do our bit and be part of the solution that will see London become a low emission city.

Storage London

London is home to thousands of successful businesses, and most, if not all began by keeping things simple and sticking to a modest budget. This is especially true for start-up companies and SMEs where the first year is a make or break scenario. Reducing your current overheads or putting a cap on spending will ultimately improve your ability to invest. And there are plenty of innovative options and ways to lower your costs.

There is a simple way of approaching this. Before taking on a new expense, you should cost it out thoroughly. With any new business, it is tempting to have an ‘invest now and reap the rewards later’ attitude. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always pan out, and it’s vital that you’re sensible and learn to walk before trying to run. Aussie Man & Van is a big fan of business in London, and we have some services that may be able to help you reduce your overheads.

The Best Commuter Towns Near London in 2019

Posted on April 29, 2019 by Lauren May

As we head into May, it looks like 2019 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for the housing market in London and the UK. With a record number of new developments, quotas for affordable housing and other factors, there are signs of movement of people heading in and out of the city. A lot of Londoners are looking to move out of the city-centre to enable them to buy their first property instead of renting. That’s why many are looking around the up and coming areas of London or at the nearby commuter towns for places to buy.

While many fantastic things attract people to buy property in London, one of the key aspects of its attraction is the transport system. You can get to every part of the capital via the Underground, and there are lots of regular trains, buses, taxis and even a ferry to cross the Thames. Parts of London are going through significant regeneration work, and this has led to a rise in inter-city relocations. At Aussie Man & Van, we notice this as it affects how we operate. Not only have we seen an increase in moves to South London, but we regularly relocate people to the commuter towns.
