Revised Prices and Product Features from 1st April 2019

From 1st April 2019 SafeMove are making some price and feature changes to its range of drainage and water searches.

The price of the CON29DW Drainage and Water enquiry for residential properties within the Yorkshire region will increase by £1.84 to £52.00 (inc vat). For customers that use our online mapping tool whilst ordering their searches, the revised price will be £49.60 (inc vat).

We have two Commercial Drainage and Water search products, the Commercial Standard and the Commercial Plus. There will be no price increase for the Commercial Plus product which covers search areas over 1 hectare and includes an unlimited number of billing accounts. The price of this search product will remain at £216.00 (inc vat) each.

The price of our Commercial Standard product will rise by £12.00 to £144.00 (inc vat). This search covers land areas up to 1 hectare and as a new feature, will include an unlimited number of billing accounts. Previously this search only included a maximum of two billing acccounts before an upgrade to the Commercial Plus product was needed.

As we continue to receive price update notifications from our suppliers, we will post these on our website, on our Twitter stream and LinkedIn page. No further email communications will be sent out on the matter (as we realise that you probably get plenty already).

For customers ordering searches online, prices will be automatically updated from the 1st April 2019.

Account customers who order by post will be charged the new fees for any searches received after the 1st April.

For those customers paying by cheque, to ensure you continue to receive searches back promptly, please provide the correct fees for any search requests arriving with ourselves from 1st April onwards.
