by | Sep 15, 2022 | news | 0 comments

Interior designers in London work closely with property enhancement for sales and marketing.  In a city as dynamic and innovative as London, many industries interconnect in mutually beneficial ways.  Gentleman and a Van have built up a client base of designers who find our services compatible with their trade and professional code. Whether they work designing commercially for stage sets, window dressing, or private clients, we can be an auxiliary wing for their enterprise. We work with award-winning international designers who have a client base for whom quality service is imperative.

How we can assist Interior Designers

One of our most essential services for interior designers is our Man & Van package. Alongside the stylish vehicle for collection and delivery will be two team members to perform the manual labour as well as to drive.  Our team’s knowledge of the roads, parking restrictions, and potential traffic is second to none, as London really is our hometown.   As well as excellent service, it is an economically sound choice as you can pay by the hour in accordance with the requirements of the work.  We train our team to be experts at handling rare, valuable, and collectible items.   Plus, our top-of-the-range vehicles can be an elegant addition to your operation.  Luxury designers like Katherine Pooley have a team of over 40 designers working on projects and appreciate our service when it comes to organizing, staging, and removing installations. 

Why invest in a vehicle? 

With London’s ever-tightening traffic restrictions and the ULEZ, one can really wonder if it is worth the investment.  Parking tickets and fines can’t count as business expenses! However, hiring our Man and Van package is a great investment and a bona fide expense. Reducing overheads really helps, particularly in an expensive city like London.  Lots of designers may have various needs for various jobs, so using the Gentleman and Van removal or Man and Van means a tailor-made vehicle for each engagement. Similarly, by using a storage unit, instead of rented premises, overheads can be dramatically reduced.  As we have Gentleman and a Van storage throughout London, it makes it very easy to connect our transportation packages with our storage options. 

Storage as an entrepreneurial asset 

In these changing times, old format premises are not necessary. A storage unit can be a great place to store materials, tools, and goods.  Some of our clients work from our storage facilities, finding them to be a flexible alternative to renting an office or commercial space.  They appreciate the ability to grow their enterprise without crippling outgoings.  When the time comes that they need more space, they can always take on an additional unit to increase their setup.  With a fleet of vehicles on hand for transportation, it is an incredibly convenient way to take care of the basics and focus on developing designer flair and flourish.  With high-value props and artwork at your disposal, it is important to know that they are stored in temperature-controlled conditions with excellent security.  As part of our service, we can guarantee that will be the case. 

Interior design and property sales in London

Interior designers are often connected with the sale and move into new properties. Firstly, through home staging, where designers prepare homes for photography and viewings. Enhancing the saleability of homes and increasing their market value is the main benefit of home staging.  Many people opt for this service to avoid their property stagnating and depreciating on the housing market.  Secondly, interior designers are often first through the door to prepare homes and premises for usage.  With new office premises, they will set the innovative tone for what is to come.  As catalysts to assist sales, and to establish new workspaces they assist the property industry.  In turn, we can be on hand to assist them, with the Designers Package of our services.  Clients like Helen Green design specialize in luxury multi-layered elegant interiors and rely on us to provide a suitable elegant service.
