Storage space is always a consideration for tenants looking to find a place to live, and often new-build apartment blocks are not built with enough storage space to house the components of modern day living. When potential tenants view a property they will be mentally checking whether the wardrobes and cupboards are big enough for all their clothes as well as considering where they can keep their bike, skis and golf clubs. If they don’t see their things fitting into the space, they won’t rent it.

As a Landlord during the property marketing process, there are several things you can do to make the space more attractive to prospective tenants. We all know we need to make sure the property is clean and tidy, and smelling fresh on viewing days. To make the real difference you should remove all unnecessary items to give your prospective tenants the perfect vision of their new home.

Here are some suggestions of some of the ways Landlords can use to improve the storage offering of their property and greatly reduce their likelihood of a dud month:

  • Out of site, out of the way (and more space to live!)

    Landlords can use a convenient service that collects boxes or other items (e.g. suitcases, bikes or snowboards) from any UK address and looks after them for as long or as little as required. It’s effectively like cloud storage for physical things and comes in at a very reasonable cost.

  • Added service to make your rental more attractive

    For very small apartments, try adding the service on to the cost of the annual rent to make the lack of storage an opportunity for people to live clutter free lives while enjoying the space of their apartment.

  • Declutter

    We all know that a decluttered home improves the chance of a let.

LOVESPACE is a new service that brings a fresh and innovative approach to storage, collecting and storing boxes or larger items and delivering to any UK address.
