Moving home can be a daunting prospect, but if you decide that the lifestyle we offer is for you, then we have a range of services in place that will help keep things as simple as possible.

From the moment you make a reservation right through to the day you settle in to your new apartment, we’re here to help every step of the way. That means keeping you fully informed of how things are progressing with construction if you’re buying off-plan; helping towards financial costs when it comes to legal and estate agency fees; access to our specialist removals teams and even help with de-cluttering.

When it comes to moving into a McCarthy & Stone property, we do all we can to lend a helping hand. That starts even before any contracts have been signed. If you’re undecided about whether the lifestyle we offer is right for you, then we have a scheme that allows you to experience it first hand. ‘Try before you buy’ means you can enjoy a complimentary two-night stay in one of our fully furnished retirement apartments at selected developments, with plenty of opportunities to meet with homeowners and staff.

Then there’s our Part Exchange scheme, which offers a guaranteed buyer for your current property* and the certainty of a moving date. That way you can move to your new apartment without the stress of being part of a chain. The offer to buy your home takes away the expense of estate agents’ fees, and what’s more, you can retain access to the property you sell for up to two weeks following completion on your new apartment. This avoids the stress of having to do everything on moving-in day.

When it comes to the logistics of moving we provide a free removals service, putting you in the safe hands of a team of experts who specialise in downsizing. They can pack up and help organise your belongings, advise on decluttering and even help you plan out where your furniture will fit best in your new home.

On moving day they will safely transport your belongings and even unpack for you, taking care of all the heavy lifting. By the time they leave, your favourite chair will be in its place and they’ll even have made sure your TV channels have been properly tuned in. Then it’s over to our handymen, who can help with tasks such as hanging pictures and mirrors – meaning your new apartment will feel like home in next to no time.
