If you’re a property owner then I think you will be very interested in my new service, so I’m delighted to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I am Mark Mitcheson and I’ve lived happily in the Edenbridge area for the last 25 years. I’m a project manager by profession and have worked with a range of companies from multinational to start- up.

I also have a passion in architecture and buildings, so much so that my dream is to one day take part in Grand Designs. It is this passion which has led me to my current work with Aspray – more of that later – but, talking about buildings…

There’s nothing better than opening your own front door, knowing you can shut it behind you and escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. That’s why, when your home is damaged in some way, by extreme weather, fire or criminal activity, it can be painful and unsettling for you on a very personal level.

While your business may not hold as much of your precious family history, property damage and interruption in trading can be just as devastating in its own way.

If the worst happens, that’s distressing enough, but sadly your problems are only just beginning. Not only do you have to cope with the disruption, inconvenience and financial implications, but you have to take on the insurance company, deal with all the paperwork, find tradespeople to carry out the repairs and then supervise them.

That’s what we at Aspray can do for you!

Imagine having someone working tirelessly on your behalf, making all those wearisome phone calls for you, cutting through the red tape and negotiating with the loss adjuster to ensure your settlement is fair.

But we don’t stop there! We then focus on finding the very best Aspray-vetted local plumbers, electricians, builders and roofers. Providing you with regular progress reports, we project manage the repairs so that your home or business is returned to its former glory as quickly as possible.

It may be hard to believe but this amazing service comes COMPLETELY FREE to you, since we invoice the insurers directly for all property reinstatement and repairs. (You will, of course, have to pay the policy excess as you would have to in any case when you make a claim.)

Thinking back to the awful floods in December 2013, I’m sure it remains all too real in your memory as we reach the anniversary of those fateful few days. The great thing that came out of that was how people will pull together in difficult times.

That’s why I find my work with Aspray so rewarding. Project management involves a whole range of activities but the best part for me is being able to make a positive difference to those whose lives have been turned upside down by damage to their home or business.

Visit our website at Aspray.com where you can download a voucher worth £100 towards your excess if you instruct us to handle your property claim and we carry out all reinstatement works.
