New hope on the horizon for house buyers
After years of uncertainty, February 2020 would have gone down on record as a successful, maybe even game-changing month for the UK as far as the housing market was concerned. It felt like things were finally settling down. Mortgage approvals were up, with 73,500 deals done on funding for property purchases that month alone, making this the highest number in years and indicating that our national economy was on the up. Thousands of households around Merseyside and the rest of the UK were, as usual, on the cusp of making the big move. Then March happened…
With the UK lockdown now in full swing due to Covid-19, the usual buzz of activity around new sales and lettings prospects have inevitably come to a juddering halt. And whilst the buying and selling process can continue to a very limited extent – the industry, and even the government, has been forced to acknowledge that this already drawn-out process could now take significantly longer than usual.
Covering everywhere in Merseyside from Huyton to Aigburth to Southport – Britannia Fleet can help with many aspects of your removal needs, even during these uncertain times. We’ve recently updated our service offering to accommodate the needs of our customers in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak, and want to do our best to reassure all clients that we are doing everything we can to offer up our services to the best of our physical capabilities at the moment. As of May 11th 2020, we’re hoping to help start getting our customers back on the move again, which will be a welcome development to anyone who has been struggling recently with logical setbacks. We’ll be rolling out some of our revised services, taking into account stringent new safety measures in line with essential government advice on social distancing.
Our dedicated team of local Merseyside removals experts are working hard to ensure that we can still offer services such as video and telephone surveys, and we’re currently operating a live chat service on our website, as well as still having members of our team working to answer your queries. Because we know this is a difficult time for our customers, especially those who were planning on a move and who’s plans may have been put on hold, we’ve put together a small list of helpful resources that may be able to offer additional information about moving during this time.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team for more information. Don’t forget you can also visit our social media pages too.
Stay safe and well.
