The Advantages of Using A Local Company For Inventories

The Advantages of Using A Local Company For Inventories

Looksy Inventories is based in Sevenoaks, and we work within the Sevenoaks District carrying out property inventories for landlords and letting agents. Being so familiar with the area (we live here as well as work here) means that we are aware of all the peculiarities (those country lanes, oil heating, even listed buildings), as well as being completely familiar with the geography of the town and its surrounding villages too. But why else is it a good idea to use a local company for your inventory needs? Read on to find out.  

Improve The Local Economy

Using a big chain or a company based in a different area means that the money you pay them for their services doesn’t stay in the local area. In some cases, it doesn’t even stay in the country.

When using a local business such as Looksy, you can be sure that every penny you pay stays local. At Looksy we shop local, we support our community, and we feel this is even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic. The more you support us, the more we can support others, and the more they can support you. This local usage cycle is a great one to be a part of.

A Face Behind The Business

At Looksy, we’ve never shied away from the fact that we’re a small team. It’s just us, Dean and Lisamarie, husband and wife, building up a business to be proud of. So when you phone, email, get in touch on social media, or when you come into contact with us face to face, it’s us you’ll see. You’ll never be put through to a nameless call centre operator, and you’ll be able to create a great working relationship with us because we never pretend to be something we’re not.

Great Customer Service

If you’ve ever had a problem with a chain retailer before, you’ll know it can be frustrating to let them know about it. Even if you don’t have an issue but you want to ask a question, or you’re curious about how they work, or you need to get in touch with them for any other reason, you’ll often have to wait days (perhaps longer) for a response to an email, and if there is a phone number you can call, you’ll be shoved around from department to department until you give up or the call is disconnected.

With a local company – and certainly with Looksy Inventories – that’s not what happens. If you send an email, we’ll reply pretty quickly (usually within a few minutes on an admin day, and a few hours when we’re out on site), and if you call, we’ll answer (you’ll speak to either Lisamarie or Dean, that’s a promise, but do bear with us – as you know, some areas around Sevenoaks don’t have much reception…).
