How Property Developers Can Use Our Removals and Storage Services in Dorset

Whether you’re a professional property developer or you have an interest in home renovations, it’s useful to have various options for associates and partner companies at your disposal. Even in a housing market that doesn’t have a massive influx in new builds, Dorset still has a vibrant property development industry. Ultimately, it’s about hard work understanding the local market and potential customers, all while keeping your costs low. That’s why you should have a reputable company like Johnson’s Removals on your list of contacts.

Johnson’s has a range of removals and storage services ideal for any property development project in Dorset. We’re a business-friendly company with an intimate knowledge of running a successful enterprise for many decades. At Johnson’s, we keep our rates competitive which helps property developers reduce their costs for each project they work on. It doesn’t matter if you’re developing a building for commercial or domestic purposes – Johnson’s is the right partner for you.

Using Man & Van Removal Services for Property Development –

From years of working with property developers, we can confidently tell anyone that there are two packages they always use. That’s our Man & Van and Storage services. Even people undertaking their home renovation projects find them useful because they fit the type of process and expenditure requirements.

Take this scenario from a previous property development project we were part of. The property developer in question didn’t have a workspace like a depot, warehouse, or factory to store materials. Not only that, due to a previous issue with a break-in, their van wasn’t available to use, but the job was due to start the following Monday. They didn’t cancel the project because they knew that Johnson’s had two things: a working vehicle and a storage unit.

Johnson’s man with a van service gave them the use of a vehicle and two team members for assistance with loading and packing. And because they were renting a storage unit from us, the man and van team were able to transport their materials and tools seamlessly on and off-site at the beginning of the day and the end of the shift.

How Self Storage Benefits Freelance Developers –

One of the main benefits of using storage comes from the quality of our facilities and the knowledge that your equipment and building materials are safe from theft or damage. The security measures we take at Johnson’s storage facility leaves nothing to chance. We have CCTV in operation throughout the grounds, with security fencing surrounding the property. The units are made of rust-proof materials and are secure from break-ins.

Another lesser-known use of a storage unit is that developers do their admin and paperwork from their storage unit. All you need is a portable modem, a laptop and possibly a desk and chair. This means you have all the basics you need for an office and the storage required for your equipment. And at a fraction of the costs of commercial rent.

That’s why property developers and self storage also enjoy successful partnerships. Essentially, linking a man and van removals with storage creates an affordable local distribution system. You’ll have somewhere secure for tools, materials, and goods if that’s applicable. Then you can coordinate your collections and deliveries from the same storage unit, which also doubles up as a basic office setup.

Use Both Services Reduce Your Project Costs –

The obvious place to start is removing the need to buy or lease a vehicle. You will be outsourcing this at a cost, but we include all removal services with the bonus of additional labour. Johnson’s Removals charges below-market rates, which represents excellent value for money. And we prioritise high-quality standards and unbeatable customer service.

Having a dedicated workspace might be unrealistic for freelancer property developers who instead use their homes for storage. Paying for monthly rental in commercial buildings can be expensive, especially if you’re a sole trader. And the costs might fail to measure up to your income to make this a sensible expense. That’s why self storage is the ideal alternative.

The price comparison per square metre isn’t even in the same bracket, with storage being considerably more affordable. You stand to save hundreds, if not over a thousand pounds per month. You’ll have a secure place to keep your equipment and stock. And there’s no lease or rigid contract to worry about, making it flexible and less stressful if your circumstances change suddenly.

Start Planning Early and Use a Checklist –

You need to get the ball rolling in the right direction from the beginning of any job you undertake. Being proactive is always the correct way to approach any development project, specifically if several are in the pipeline. And this applies to who you partner with because any associates need to match your drive and work ethic. If you book with Johnson’s Removals early, you’ll have our experience and expertise for the planning stages.

It might sound counterintuitive, but there’s a method domestic movers use that will help you focus and remain on track. Much like a moving checklist, you’ll need to note every single task involved in the development. Then you can line up with a blank calendar to map out a timeline, giving you a better understanding of deadlines and work allocation. Then you can start slotting each task into the available weeks.

Now you can start completing the initial actionable points as soon as possible, which we suggest you start doing straight away. Time is a precious commodity for any construction situation, regardless of the project’s size. Think of an early start like a sound investment and a backup plan if problems arise. By making constant and measurable progress, you’ll be in a better position in case a delay occurs.

The Advantages of Using Professional Movers –

Anyone with trade experience knows that time is a deciding factor in how successful a job is. Every day that runs over becomes a budget and scheduling issue. If you’re developing a property to flip, that could cut into your profits. And it also means the headache of trying to coordinate or rearrange sub-contractors into new schedules that don’t conflict with their next jobs.

That’s why it’s vital to work with companies that understand that completing on time is necessary. At Johnson’s Removals, it’s in our DNA to arrive and finish on time as per the initial agreement. We work to strict deadlines to avoid clashing with our next booking, so it’s within our interest to stick to these cut-off points. We achieve this by thorough assessment and planning, leaving no details out.

It will be best to do your homework before committing to any service provider, including us. Check their Google Review and Trustpilot ratings and go with ones that regularly get five stars. If they can provide BAR accreditation and a Quality Policy, you’re working with the right removals company. But it’s always a smart idea to get a few quotes and contact the prospective companies directly. We’re confident you’ll find exactly what your business needs when you book with us.

Reputation is Everything for Construction and Trade in Dorset –

By booking with Johnson’s Removals, you’ll receive a high standard of customer service at an affordable price. That’s what makes us Dorset’s favourite removals and storage company. Our team will do everything possible to ensure that your development project goes smoothly. For us, every happy person means a repeat customer, and we often receive referrals from previous clients who recommend us to their colleagues and associates.

Johnson’s fully adheres to the BAR accreditation and standard of service, and we strive to go above and beyond in every job we undertake. We are a member of the Master Removers Group, and this elite network of removals companies provides the highest standard of customer service available in the UK.

Your materials and equipment must arrive on-site in perfect working condition. If you don’t do your due diligence, you may use a company that damages your tools and building materials. You can check companies online through previous customer reviews, which is advisable. It’s easy to do, and you can use other people’s experiences to help you choose the right removals and storage company.

Ultimately, you should only use a company you’re comfortable with, so make sure you ask them lots of questions. You’re paying money for a reliable company, and they should be available to discuss any issues or queries with you. It should also be easy to find out about any business via their website. Similarly, an online presence says a lot about if a company is reputable or not.
