One of Golden Real Estate’s exclusive services is its free moving truck, which is made available to our buyers and sellers as well as to local non-profits. This summer we expanded this service with the purchase of another truck, shown here.
When we represent buyers submitting offers on homes with multiple offers, we can offer free use of the truck to the other agent’s client as an inducement for them to accept our buyer’s offer. Sometimes we even offer free labor and gas. This has helped buyers to win bidding wars in this seller’s market.
In addition, we provide our clients with free moving boxes, packing paper and bubble wrap. We have a storage shed behind our office solely for the storage of these materials, which we collect afterward for reuse.
As you may know, Golden Real Estate accepts polystyrene (aka “Styrofoam”) for recycling. We have a “Styrofoam Corral” behind our South Golden Road office where the public can drop off clean, white polystyrene 24/7. Once that corral gets full (which it does every 3-4 weeks), we fill one of our trucks with that material and take it to a polystyrene factory in Denver for reprocessing, keeping over 200 cubic yards of polystyrene out of the landfills each year.
