As the traditional summer rush slows down, many students and other flat hunters will be preparing to settle into their new accommodation – and many others will be looking for a last minute move.
To help people who are planning on moving in the near future, Lettingweb have teamed up with a leading Scottish removals company, who have offered to give the first 100 people who sign up to the site a free packing kit, with more on the way depending on popularity. So tenants from Inverness to Glasgow can get a kit to make moving easier.
Kits include boxes, tape and labels, ensuring that tenants have everything they need to get packed and organised before the move. As lots of people have experienced, standard cardboard boxes can be flimsy due to damage, which can potentially cause problems during a move when they are filled with breakables or heavy loads such as books. Badly taped or ripped boxes are responsible for countless removal breakages and are notoriously difficult to carry.
Packing kits, on the other hand, are designed to be sturdy and durable. They generally include a range of different sized boxes to suit all household items. Labels save the time and hassle of trying to find writing space on branded boxes and the specialist tape is designed with strength in mind.
Ordering a packing kit also means that the removals company you purchase it from will assess the amount of packing materials needed and provide adequate supplies, ensuring that users don't come up short on the day.
Patrick Foot, Lettingweb’s Product Manager, commented on the project:
"Here at Lettingweb we’re trying to offer our users a better service. Using technology and considering what tenants actually need is key to providing a portal that is useful beyond merely finding a property. That’s why offers such as this one can be so positive, and that’s why we’ve redesigned our website to better suit the people that use it.
"Signing up for Lettingweb means getting the property that you need to see sent straight to your phone or email inbox. So your property hunt is taken care of for you, and you are kept updated wherever you are. With this deal, that service just got even better."
