As a member of the prestigious Guild of Professional Estate Agents, family run estate agents Rochills can now offer its clients a free ‘de-cluttering’ service to make their home more attractive to buyers.
This innovative and novel idea was launched at The Guild’s Annual Conference, held recently at the Millennium Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London, attended by Members of the 700-strong plus network from across the UK.
The new de-clutter service includes free collection, free delivery and free storage for four weeks, operated by some of the country’s most highly regarded removals companies. These include Abels, Britannia, Doree Bonner International, Fox Moving and Storage, GB Liners, and White & Company – who offer a combined force of 750 operatives trained to the BAR (British Association of Removers) Industry Standard, and 450 vehicles which are replaced every seven years. All the operative staff from the companies have been cleared by the MOD, are CRB checked, wear uniforms, carry ID cards, and have received in-house training including video presentations and written examinations.
Each client will be able to store selected belongings in a container up to 8ft by 7ft by 5ft in size, containing selected items such as kitchen and bedroom furniture, including beds and appliances – which will help improve the appearance of a property and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
Geoff Watson, M.D. of Doree Bonner International, revealed details of the scheme at the conference. “Together we have 1,050,000 square feet of storage space – that’s the equivalent of 220 football pitches, which Members’ clients can take advantage of.”
Marcus Whewell, CEO of The Guild of Professional Estate Agents, 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 a significant assist. It shows the commitment of professional estate agents to identifying new schemes and services which could really make the difference for their customers.”
Marcel Roccia of Rochills, Walton on Thames added, ‘we’re always searching for new ways to improve our offering and this service is a great addition to our home movers’.
