Moving house is one of the most stressful and expensive things we can do in the UK, with consumers seemingly powerless to change the status quo, but now there is a different way.
Moving Soon is the brainchild of businessman and entrepreneur Paul Malone, who has devised the website to fill the gap in the market acting as a one-stop shop for moving home the site has two key offerings.
Affordable Housing Portal
The first is property listings. Moving Soon is currently being used by Housing Associations and Choice Based Lettings Schemes to advertise their readily available property for rent. This is far more than just an affordable housing portal though. A behind-the-scenes team of property marketing experts will be available to help clients if required.
The second is their moving home services for individuals. He added: “We offer a range of services including removals quotes, house cleaning and declutter help as well as free moving checklists. Again it’s about individual choice. So you can choose to use either some or all of our services. So whatever you need when moving home we are here to help ensure it’s a smooth move.”
Initially the focus was on the Wirral, Cheshire and Merseyside. However, due to demand to list properties further afield this has seen an expansion of property listings into the rest of the North West of England. It’s all about people power. Malone said: “The business is geared up to expand and grow. If we get requests from people to operate in other areas, providing the demand is there we’ll look at it.”
It is marketed using local press, advertising and PR as well as social media sites including facebook and twitter to create a viral campaign grounded upon positive word of mouth. The concept will then be rolled out region by region and be developed according to customer feedback.
