Tiler Craig Patterson and Rebecca Hann are the brains behind Ship-Your-Reno, a business that started out because Rebecca felt the cost of building materials was exorbitant – particularly in Australia.
As a former air hostess, she had traveled the globe and saw a disparity in prices between Australia and overseas and so decided to source her products direct from China when she renovated her home.
Rebecca found she was able to fit out an entire kitchen including a butler’s pantry, two-pac cabinetry, Blum hinges and stone bench tops for less than USD$8000. She felt this was a significant saving, and one she wanted to pass on to other people who were renovating or building their dream home.
Bifold doors are a sought-after luxury item opening up the living space between inside and out, but unfortunately are often out of reach due to their hefty price tag.
But rather than paying over $10,000, Ms Hann bought hers direct from China for less than USD$1000.
“I could finally buy a bifold door! I wanted to make this available to everyone, and it makes me angry that there are all these big guys out there making a fortune from people renovating or building their own home.
“That’s where my drive comes from in this business,” Ms Hann said.
Rebecca said clients can save close to $100,000 in costs by importing their own renovation materials direct from China. But saving money isn’t the only bonus, clients are also adding value to the their homes and creating greater equity.
Ship-Your-Reno is perfect for investors offering a fantastic opportunity for investors looking to renovate their properties on a budget.
Builders can even source furniture for their spec homes!
