Live in landlord

West Byfleet

We moved to West Byfleet in May 2014 and overall the move for our company has been a positive one. Our office located in Phoenix House is within a five minute walk from the West Byfleet train station. A main line station stop to London Waterloo. Close to train hubs at Woking and Guildford. The latter station served by South West trains and Great Western railways.

We are also within two miles of the M25 and the A3, so around ten minutes drive away. The village or small town of West Byfleet has a good range of shops, including a Waitrose store and three charity shops. 240px-west_byfleet_station_approach_geograph_2266720

Email address vrs contact form

Most websites no longer include an email contact address. Instead a contact us form is included. There is a very good reason for this. If an email address is shown it is an invitation to be inandated by unwanted messages or spam mail as it’s called from around the world. A contact form with a […]

Took a while to finalise, but we are pleased to say we have now moved to our new office in West Byfleet, Surrey. We would have liked to have changed our office address from 1 May, but sorting out the communications aspect took longer than expected, so we moved in on Monday 12 May 2014. […]
