Slow Pace Of Home Buying And Selling Not Good For Removal Companies

The entire relocation process is stressing enough for a family or a business but there are furniture removals in Sydney that will minimize the headache. A team of professional and highly skilled removalists will look after all the removal needs whether for a business or a home. Good old-fashioned service that is very rare nowadays is guaranteed.

Figures from BBC reveal that homeowners are no longer moving as often as they did before the credit crunch. Prices of homes have gone up, getting mortgages have become stricter and seniors prefer to stay in large properties. A few years ago, people move 4 times after their initial purchase of a home; right now, it is more like twice. The trend today is home expansion so that parents can create enough space for a growing family.

Since sales of new homes have gone down, it means less work for removal companies. According to Kieran Whitehead of Osbornes, the removal business is affected because they have fewer customers. Some of the removal companies opted for another industry like storage.

Peter Barlow, a Burnage real estate agent said the people who are planning to put family-sized homes in the market are disappointed after looking at a real estate’s window and saw that very little was on offer. This is a problem for the older generation who want to downsize. They want a bungalow but nothing is available.

Mr. Cook from Savills is concerned about the effects of the economy. People have to spend money when they move because a better job is waiting. Because of the difficulty to make a move, labour mobility is impacted. The most obvious option is to rent which is being done by some even if they own a property. If British homeowners decide to stay put, removal companies may soon be out of business.

Relocation is a time consuming process that is best left to professional furniture removals in Sydney that are trained to avoid scratches and bumps on the valuable furniture. If furniture is not handled properly, damages are very likely to happen. There are instances when the insurance company won’t cover the damages sustained if the move was made without professional help.
