Why Use Furniture Packages

This post originally appeared on the LOFT Interiors Blog

Furnishing a property, whether a one off for a first time buyer or owner occupier, or a regular occurrence for a professional property investor or developer, furniture delivery, assembly, installation and staging can be a very complex, frustrating and long winded process.

From a landlords point of view there are many aspects to consider. The furniture must be “in tune” with your target audience and rental evaluation. The general style and colour scheme of your furnishings can’t be too offensive but at the same time can’t too boring either. The furniture must be practical and durable, yet remain stylish and contemporary.

If this isn’t enough to think about, pounding the streets, searching different furniture stores hoping to buy each individual item of furniture for a knock down price could take weeks. If the furniture store miraculously has stock of the item(s) you require, it could take up to six weeks before the item(s) can bed delivered.

Once a delivery date is agreed it’s likely you will be waiting at home all day your goods to turn up. If you are collecting your furniture flat packed, after hiring a van and carrying it up the stairs more often than not there are pieces missing! Like flat pack furniture isn’t difficult enough in the first place!

Assembling flat packed furniture can often become a nightmare. The task itself is usually very time consuming and without the right tools or a workbench can be almost impossible. When flat packed furniture is built incorrectly, it falls apart far quicker than if it was built property, by a professional in the first place.

Furnishing properties on your own can often become a huge waste of time and result in nothing more than exhaustion and a thumping headache.

Often inexperienced landlords will furnish properties themselves because they firstly underestimate the time it will take to do it and they also think they will save money by doing it themselves. In reality what happens is the furnishing of the properties takes up valuable time that could and should be spent looking for their next investment, which is a landlords primary objective and money earner, not furnishing properties.

Savvy, price aware, time conscious landlords mostly use a specialist furniture package provider. The top companies can provide an immediate, cost effective, furnishing solution for one or multiple properties. Specialist furniture package companies often offer a specific property management furnishing solution, catering for all budgets and target audiences.

There are many benefits of using furniture package companies such as:

Saving time:

With the click of a mouse, a fax, or one phone call it is possible to have your property furnished the very next day, to a high standard, with stylish, durable furniture that is specifically designed to quickly entice high calibre tenants. This immediately reduces the turn around time of getting a property ready to be marketed for rent and can reduces and often eliminate costly void periods.

Save money:

Furniture package specialists hold large amounts of stock; their clients can take advantage of their buying power, making huge savings in comparison to buying from retail stores. Not only will a furniture package cost much less than if you were to buy the individual items from retail store, the headache of collection, delivery, assembly and installation all disappear! A landlords dream!

Be more efficient:

Using a furniture package specialist can help to streamline the process of buying and marketing a property for rent, creating invaluable time to concentrate on finding your next investment.
