Keeping Apartments Rented Keeps Our Profits Up

As a landlord with a lot of apartments for rent, I wanted a solution to keep them filled with occupants year round. I never want a place to be without a tenant more than a week. If someone moves out, we are in their cleaning, painting and remodeling the next day. I had a crew gut an apartment to the bare walls and redo everything inside in less than a week. It was leased by the following Monday. I use a service for marketing for apartments that helps me keep them occupied.

In the buildings I own, there are various levels of upgrading that are needed. Even the newest buildings have stuff wear out. We keep things fresh and new because we can afford to. Continue reading

What VFFS Packaging Machines Are Used for

If you make a product, you need to put it in a package. If it is any sort of food product, you need to make sure it arrives to the consumer safe, fresh and intact. Then it has to last in their homes whether it is a refrigerated product or not. Sounds daunting and it is. Packaging can be expensive to the point of approaching the ridiculous. For our cereal products we use VFFS packaging machines. That stands for Vertical Form Fill Seal. A continuous roll of film is rolled over on itself and sealed to form a tube, The tube is then sealed across to form the base of a bag, the product is dropped in, a top seal is formed and then it is repeated.

Your potato chips and pretty much every other bagged product is likely filled in this manner. Continue reading

Policies with redundancy protection

redundancy protectionFor the average Australian, shopping for income protection insurance can be somewhat overwhelming. Most policies have a variety of options and different levels of coverage, along with the fact that many of the insurance terms might be hard to understand. One feature of income protection insurance that is important to consider is redundancy protection. This policy option comes into play if the insured finds that they are involuntarily unemployed through a situation that is not related to illness or injury.

If you would like to know more about redundancy protection and why would you need to use income protection against redundancy, visit http://www.smartincomeprotection.com.au/what-is-redundancy-protection-for/. If you want to  compare the market price from other insurance companies, go to the main menu.

A policy that has redundancy protection will not provide any benefits payments in the event that you are involuntarily unemployed, but the insurance company will waive your premium payment for a few months while you search for new employment. Not having to pay your premium in this event means that you will be able to focus what resources you have on more important expenses and you won’t risk losing your coverage all together.
