An unusual solution for tenants looking for removals or storage space is seeking lettings agencies to partner with, CEO Will Edwards (pictured) has told The Neg.
The company, which offers both removals and collection-to-storage, says it’s targeting tenants under 45 years old who either don’t have cars and/or are renters, two of the demographics that the big storage companies like the Big Yellow Company and Shurgard ignore, who tend to appeal to homeowners looking to declutter.
Lovespace recently launched both its national car park-based storage solution and removals service.
Its services include a £239 removals service using its vans and storage space from £11.63 a week.
But the company is now looking for firms to partner with who can offer its services to tenants and says it would welcome enquiries from letting agencies and property management agencies.
Lovespace was recently chosen by Transport for London (TfL) to trial its storage solution in a number of its car parks over a 12-month period following a nationwide competition.
TfL had sought ideas to boost customer experience at its car parks and bolster the Mayor’s Transport Strategy following the pandemic – with ideas to ‘generate a viable income stream, benefit the environment and ensure existing car parking was not disrupted’.
“We want to provide a sustainable, secure and convenient solution to people who are looking for self-storage options, but don’t want to commit to traditional storage units,” says Edwards.
