Our service to you
Updated 23 February 2021 following the publication of the Government “roadmap” out of lockdown
In common with the entire business community, Oldfield Smith & Co are delighted to see the benefits the vaccination programming is having in bringing the COVID pandemic under control. There is still much to do and we appreciate that there are still many businesses facing very real challenges, but we believe this is a time of unprecedented opportunity. We are ready and able to assist our clients to adapt, develop and offer new services and new ways of doing business.
As a socially responsible, ethical and professional business, Oldfield Smith & Co will continue to operate safely, professionally and in accordance with best practice. The end of restrictions is in sight, but we care about the safety of our staff, the clients we work with and the communities in which we operate. We will therefore comply with both the detailed requirements of legislation and the spirit of the Government’s supporting advice.
As a technology driven business, we have systems, procedures and IT equipment in place which allows our staff to seamlessly work remotely. Thus we are able to provide consistent levels of service whilst reducing the risk of infection through home working and staggered attendance at our offices, keeping everyone safe whilst the vaccination programme continues. Our business practices are COVID-19 Secure. As a result, we are still able to offer a full range of services including accompanied viewings, surveys and valuations. We have also added video virtual tours of the majority of properties we have available, allowing applicants to fully appreciate the merits of sites in a safe and convenient way if they prefer.
To keep everyone safe, we are minimising the need for face to face meetings. However, we can be contacted by phone or email and have facilities for video conferencing where meetings are required, using Skype, Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
We appreciate that the way the business community operates is changing and that in turn may change your commercial property requirements. We can assist with the acquisition of new space, disposal of surplus premises, re-gearing of existing leases or strategic advice on adapting your business to meet the opportunities presented by “the new normal”. Whatever your circumstances and needs, there are always options and we are happy to take you through these in a balanced and objective way.
