Your house or business premises is the biggest financial investment you’ll ever make. So it’s essential you make sure that investment is looked after and grows in value. If it’s your home, you’ll also want to make sure that it’s comfortable, safe and secure, while businesses want a property that will say the ‘right thing’ about their organisation and present a good first impression to every customer that walks through the door.
But homeowners and business entrepreneurs are often time-poor, and while that dripping tap, tired décor and faulty heating may not be a major priority, it can still impact on both your business and your homelife. So how do you solve all those property maintenance issues and still have time for everything else? It’s simple – hand it over to the experts.
At MG London our property maintenance services for commercial and residential customers have been keeping London’s businesses and homes in tip-top condition for over 10 years. And it’s not just because we employ expert technicians who can take care of all your property maintenance needs in a professional manner. It’s also because we employ local contractors who really understand what businesses need, and how the residential and rental markets operate in their area. It’s this combination of expertise and local knowledge that enables MG London to deliver a tailored service to all customers, both business and domestic.
How we can help – Businesses
First impressions count. They can make or break a business, especially if you want to encourage customers to come back time and time again. A well-maintained office or workplace also encourages greater productivity and happier staff, all of which can have a huge impact on your bottom line numbers. So peeling paint, draughty windows and doors, or toilets that don’t flush properly can all have a negative impact on your business.
However, employing a full-time maintenance team or janitor may not represent the best value for money. While they may be there when you need them for those day-to-day fixes and emergencies, the rest of the time you may be struggling to find things for them to do. It simply may not be cost-effective for you to employ someone on a full or even part-time basis.
By using a property maintenance service that specialises in both ongoing and ‘rapid response’ calls, you can get those maintenance jobs done and only pay for the services you need, when you need them. It’s more economical, and you still get the cover you need to keep your business property in good condition.
How we can help – Landlords
Landlords know that the better their properties are maintained, the easier it is to get good, long-term tenants. Poorly maintained rental properties tend to remain vacant for longer, and a vacant rental property is costing the landlord money, rather than generating returns. Many landlords in London also have more than one property in their portfolio, so it can be difficult to stay on top of maintenance. There is also a raft of legal considerations and obligations that have to be met, such as ensuring all gas and electric fittings like heating and boilers are correctly maintained, certified, and in good working order. At MG London we only use fully qualified electricians and certified Gas Safe engineers, you’re also employing a company that understands how your rental business works, and how important it is to ensure your properties are in good condition to ensure they’re attractive to potential tenants.
How we can help – Homeowners and Domestic customers
With busy lives and very little free time, London’s homeowners find it hard to fit in an extra few hours to get those home maintenance jobs done. Some jobs around the house, such as boiler repairs, heating maintenance and plumbing, need much more expertise too. And if you’re planning to sell your property then all gas and electric fittings within the house may need to be checked before you can put your property on the market.
At MG London we understand how busy you are, and how those maintenance jobs can get put on the ‘back burner’, even if it’s something as simple as building a flat-pack cabinet. Our property maintenance services in London are there for all your household jobs, no matter how big or small, leaving you free to get on with your life.
