Get Ready, our Sales Centres are now open


Since lockdown began we’ve been keeping busy helping you plan your next house move, remotely and virtually to follow Government guidance on social distancing. Keeping our customers and Sales Centre team safe will always be our priority, which is why we temporarily closed all of our Sales Centre and Show Homes.

The Government guidance is now that house moves and viewings can start again, so we’ll be following that advice while keeping safety at the forefront of everything we do, for the sake of all of you our customers, and our employees.

What this means is that we’ve been adapting our Sales Centres and Show Homes and our ways of working so that we can reopen with appropriate social distancing measures in place.
