Surveys

We are carrying out FaceTime and WhatsApp appointments. To arrange an appointment please call 01993 811276 or email office@headingtoncarriers.co.uk.

You, as the Customer will need to:

  • Social distance by 2 metres at all times
  • Open all doors and cupboards for the Surveyor while keeping your distance
  • Make sure that only one family member is present during the visit

Any customers that are of the high-risk category should not be present and should provide a representative in your place.

Our Surveyor will:

  • Social distance by 2 metres at all times
  • Wear appropriate PPE (Gloves, Face Masks and Face Shields are available)
  • Walk around the property with you, while keeping 2 metres apart
