Moving couldn't be simpler with Part Exchange

Did you know, you could start enjoying the luxury of retirement living without having to do too much at all? With our Part Exchange service, we will make an offer on your property and then sort out the rest for you. This includes free removals and a two-week window to go back and forth between houses - so it could possibly be the most hassle-free move you have ever made! 

Dr and Mrs Learner took advantage of our Part Exchange scheme, which turned out to be even more helpful than they ever thought due to the pandemic.

Moving to their new home at Llys Isan in Llanishen on the first day of lockdown in March, Mrs Learner said: “It was an enormous amount of help. Going down the part exchange route meant the whole process was handled by McCarthy Stone. We didn’t have the bother of Estate Agents and  prospective buyers coming to view our house, which was a blessing in this current climate!

“We were due to move in towards the end of March and had everything sorted. So, when we received a call from our removal company, who were due to move us to Llys Isan the very next day,  that they could no longer take our furniture due to the restrictions, we started to panic a little I have  to say. We didn’t even have any electricity anymore, so it was a really worrying time for us and we  weren’t sure what we were going to do. 

“Luckily, McCarthy Stone’s Sales team came to our rescue. As we didn’t have any furniture, we  weren’t able to move into our chosen apartment, but instead they helped us move into the ‘Try Before You Buy’ apartment temporarily - it’s fully furnished so we could move in straight away, which was a huge relief. They also gave us the key to our new apartment so as and when the restrictions eased a little, we could start to move some of our smaller items in.

“When we actually loved into our new apartment five weeks later, it was seamless and really  smooth, which is thanks to the McCarthy Stone team. I don’t know what we would have done without them.”

We’re here to help make moving to your new home an enjoyable experience, every step of the way. If you’re thinking about moving to a McCarthy Stone development but have concerns on how the changing restrictions could affect your move or the sale of your property, our flexible Part Exchange service could be a great choice for you. 

We’re here to make your move as carefree as your retirement could be.

“Selling a property on the open market can come with its challenges, and Part Exchange brings a level of certainty amidst uncertain times. We’re delighted to be able to offer our customers a safe and secure service so that they can continue to make the move they’ve been dreaming of.” 

Kelly Stillman, Head of National Part Exchange
