Posted on November 20, 2018 by Lauren May
Renting Your London Apartment by Advertising Online

A lot of people who live in London are looking for ways to make a second income to help cover their outgoings or to start saving.And one of the most popular choices for finding another source of money is via the short-term rental market. One of the main attractions of this sector is the relative ease to enter it. All you need is a suitable property, a robust business plan and an idea of how you’ll manage your property.

Website likes Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway and Flipkey are the usual platforms when people first start out. It’s also possible to utilise the better-known social media sites like Facebook groups and Twitter for update posts regarding your property. You’ll need to do some maintenance to make sure your house or apartment is up to a rental standard. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have a partner company like Aussiethere to assist you.

 

Advertise Your Furnished Apartment Online in London –

For most secondary sources of income, it can take a while to get things going, which can feel like slow progress. However, the short-term rental market can be a relatively fast return on investment, depending on your property’s status. The main thing you need is a furnished house or apartment with some essential amenities. Obviously, you can charge more for desirable features, and it’s also dependent on your location. Premium postcodes will fetch a higher rental price.

At one time you were restricted to advertising on Gumtree until Airbnb came along. And now there are various other platforms to choose from, with Booking.com even getting in on the short-term rental act. Each platform tends to cater for a slightly different market, so you’ll need to do your research and contact the website’s hosts for more information. It’s also worth noting what their fees are.

Once you have the right platform for you, it’s time to get more familiar with the website before you jump in with two feet. This is where your business plan needs to be an active document that you update regularly. The reason? You need to make as much profit as possible. And assuming this is your second income, you need to work out how much time of your time will be going into the daily running of your property.

 

Tips on Using Online Rental Property Websites –

Short-term rental platforms like Airbnb and their competitors will usually assist you if you’re new to the process. Let’s face it – they’re charging you a fee per successful customer, so they have a vested interest. They will most likely have some basic criteria points you have to attain before they allow you to upload and advertise your property. And the main one is to showcase your home in its best light.

You will need to spruce up every room, which will entail some initial investment. To start things off, you need to undertake a complete clean of your home, from top to bottom. It might be worth hiring the professionals for this task. Next up, make any repairs and ensure there are no issues with dents in walls or scruffy or damaged woodwork. We can’t stress this point enough – your home needs to look spotless and welcoming.

Your whole property will need some decent photos taken, possibly even by a professional or with a DSLR camera. You need to start thinking outside of the box. Remember, it’s not only your home you’re looking to tempt people with; it’s your location. Put together some information about your area and its best aspects to hand out or send to prospective clients.

Tips on Making Your London Home More Energy Efficient

And for people who are looking to invest in the reduction of their carbon output, Aussieis here to help.

Over the last decade, the attitudes towards climate change have undergone some positive changes. People are beginning to look at ways they can improve their own impact on the environment. While the Mayor of London is implementing a new fund to facilitate carbon neutrality for public companies and SMEs, we all need to do our part.

Moving from London to Commuter Town? Are you in need of Removals?

Posted on October 18, 2018 by Lauren May
Aussie Man and Van Surrey

If you’re looking to move away from the capital to quieter surroundings, there are hundreds of commuter towns in locations within an hour’s travel away.A growing trend over the last decade is when people move out of London and commute to work. With transport and technology improvements, it’s a viable option for many professionals. You can have the London career with the better quality of life that a smaller town or village offers.

The Aussie teammoves hundreds of people out of London every year, with many looking for a calmer way of life. We make regular trips from London out to the neighbouring counties. Additionally, our team also live in various parts of London and the surrounding areas, so we understand why people choose to relocate. Even if you’re moving to another part of the UK, we have the right removals service for you.

The Best Man & Van and Home Removals in London

At Aussie, we strive to find the right removals service for all our customers. This is done through a process of assessment. Once we know how many items you’re moving with, and what they are, we can suggest a removals package. And this is always done so we can provide you with the most affordable and efficient option.

Aussie has a fleet of vehicles available, which means we can accommodate any size of relocation. Our Man & Van service is ideal for smaller moves within the same city or town. The volume of items and type of furniture and appliances will influence the size of the vehicle we assign. The smaller vans are also better for loading in busy streets as they don’t block traffic.

If you have larger items of furniture and appliances or a more significant volume of things, we will suggest using our Home Removals service. One of the benefits of this service is being able to move everything in one journey. Businesses often choose this service when relocating their office or commercial workspace.

Furthermore, the bigger vans are more suitable for our National Moving service, which is our new dedicated removals package. We can move you anywhere in the UK with the same high standard of service we provide in London and the surrounding areas.

Tips when Relocating to a Commuter Town

Like any relocation, the more time you spend before your move, the easier it will be. We always suggest doing as much online research as possible. If you choose a few areas you like the look of, you can find out a lot about them. In addition to your online research, you should visit each town a few times to get a proper feel for the area.

There is no limit to what your research should concentrate on; we all require different services. The crucial thing for any professional who will commute to London is transport links. Ideally, you’ll need a railway station in or near the town. And you should also aim to keep your commute to under one hour from London.

Then, you can investigate other aspects that will inform and influence your final decision. That’s things like education, healthcare, local amenities, restaurants, bars, leisure activities and green spaces. But these examples are by no means exhaustive. You should create a list of things that are important to you and be as thorough as possible.

Before you jump into arranging viewings yourself, it’s usually essential to contact a local estate agent in the area. They can do a lot of the legwork for you by sifting out properties that don’t match your criteria. It’s also possible to get them to check for things like property inspections and general housing sales in the town.

Aussie – We’re London’s Number One for Removals and Storage

Aussie is one of London’s fastest growing companies. In addition to our five removals and storage branches in London, we now operate in Bath in our new depot. We often retain customers who move out of London but still want excellent service for future relocations.

One of the reasons for our success is by making customer service our paramount concern. For us, it’s the foundation on which our company is built. Aussie is always prepared to go the extra mile for customers, literally in the case of people who move to commuter towns and villages.

Aussie operates all over London, but we go much further than the capital. We serve all the surrounding areas and have a brand-new National Moving service. And for people who are planning on relocating to Europe, we have a specialist Overseas Removals package.

If you’re considering trading in London for a quieter town, contact us today. We have the right removals service for you.
