Why are self drive van hire services suitable for estate agents in North London

London’s real estate market or also known as property market is one of the busiest in the country and perhaps in the world. Great numbers of residential real estates containing either a single family or multifamily structures, commercial real estates containing office spaces and corporate buildings make the city very attractive in terms of rentals as well as investments.

In fact three quarters of Fortune 500 companies have a London office. And with the capital flowing in, there’s no wonder the number of businesses that participate in the market steadily increases.

Who exactly are estate agents?

An estate agent is a person or business (local as well as international) that arranges the selling, renting or management of properties, and other buildings. An agent that specialises in renting in London is often called a letting or management agent.

Estate agents are mainly engaged in the marketing of property available for sale and a solicitor or licensed conveyancer is used to prepare the legal documents. When engaged in a service such as property management, self drive van hire services are of a great help when it comes to moving homes, apartments or offices around.

How to hire a van if you are an estate agent

Plan, plan, plan. Before you even start getting self drive van hire quotes, estimate how far you need to drive, whether you need to go abroad and how many people will you have on board. It is vital to get this right, as some companies for instance do not allow trips abroad due to their insurance policies. As an estate agent make sure you consider the following points:

  • Compare pricing of local van hire companies
  • Prepare correct documentation and identification
  • Inspect your vehicle before taking off
  • Check live traffic updates for London frequently
  • Be aware of wider turning radius and higher centre of gravity
  • Return self drive vehicle on time
