Man & Van Services for Critical Moves and Keyworkers in Oxford

The Aussie Man & Van Oxford team wants all our customers and followers to know about our operations during the COVID-19 lockdown.

We’ll remain open but are prioritising emergency removals and storage jobs, which means postponing and rearranging dates for all non-essential relocations. This doesn’t mean you can’t continue to prepare your home for the reopening of the housing market, and there are some excellent ways to redirect your efforts during this period.

An Update on Operations During COVID-19 Lockdown –

Aussie Man & Van Oxford will remain open during the current lockdown unless further advice is given. However, we are only undertaking emergency removals and storage jobs as we continue to do our part in reducing the spread of the virus. Additionally, we believe that these measures go some way to promoting the ethos of only completing essential tasks during this time.

We will be providing any updates on a regular basis, specifically if they increase or decrease our operations. And if you’re a frontline NHS or keyworker, we’ll do our best to accommodate your move straight away. However, it’s better to postpone all other non-essential removals and storage jobs until this lockdown is over.

We appreciate that this will no doubt cause issues for people, and we will be on hand to help you. The Aussie team will discuss any postponement and rescheduling in detail. We have a range of removals and related services under one roof, meaning you won’t have to use more than one company for your future relocation.

Using Home Staging to Prepare Your Property in Bath –

There are various options you can consider when preparing your house or apartment for sale. The main thing to remember is that it will require a budget and possibly a lot of physical work from you to lower costs. Home staging is a technique professional interior designer’s use which involves a complete aesthetic revamp of your home. It’s all about showcasing your property in the best light possible, and you can read some handy advice on this here.

You should write out some pros and cons of hiring a home staging expert against undertaking the project yourself. And make sure you cost everything out in detail, including materials and equipment. On the face of things, it might initially seem cheaper to do the work yourself. Then you realise it will mean taking time off work, and the professionals can do it in half the time.

Every room needs a new coat of paint. This means every wall and woodwork, including the skirting boards and window frames. You should hire a plasterer to fix any issues with the walls. Even the slightest dent or crack might put off a potential buyer.

Whichever option you choose, your property will need a thorough clean, from top to bottom. All deep stains and grime should be removed by taking out all appliances and cleaning in, under and behind. You can do this yourself to save some money, or you can book a professional cleaning company. Not only will you have a spotless home, but it’s also much easier to see any maintenance issues that require repairs. And there’s nothing more settling to a potential buyer than viewing a tidy house or apartment.
