Can't recommend Shipways enough! My tenants found a new property through them and Shipways got my number to help me get a new tenant ready for when mine move into their new home... Not only did the man I spoke with, Jack quickly organise taking my property onto the market quickly and efficiently but got me a new tenant lined up the very same day at £60 a month higher than I was already getting! This means I have no gap leaving the property empty between tenancies but shipways even managed...

Let within 24 Hours at £60 a month more than my expected rental income... it hardly matters what the fee was... you get what you pay for and the fee was well worth it.

We could not recommend Shipways in Great Barr any higher!! We switched to Shipways after being on with another 'cheaper' agent. We had 3 different sales Fall through with the other agent. We decided to switch to Shipways who advised us that the asking price was actually too low!! Chris was great and had lots of evidence to show us why. We had over 30 viewers in an open house event where Manni & Rachel were brilliant at showing the viewers around. Gail dealt with all of our advertising & ...

Fees aren't "cheap", but when the service and speed is so good you can understand why.

Where do I start... Viewed the property and was told it was ready to go, couldn't delay moving in as the landlord needed someone in ASAP. Referencing went through ok (fees are outrageous) but I had to repeatedly chase Shipways to find out the result. They will delay you actually coming in and signing the contract until the day you are scheduled to move in. Unfortunately for us, *they failed to let the landlord know we would be moving in on a Monday until the Friday before, at which point ...

This was by far the worst experience that I had...I was interested in a house and they advised I go in with a lesser offer then the asking which I did the first few were declined..I increased my offer and never heard anything from them for over a week and finally got a answer that the house had been sold and that the vendor had chosen to go with the other buyer...After contacting the vendor personally she explained that they persuaded her to accept the offer of the other party as they were in ho...

Terrible service, have been accused of being a bad person and then they accused the seller of being a bad person. I was told this to my face amongst other comments. They refused to provide EPC Certs. Branch manager quit his job because it was that bad there, he just got up a left one day. Avoid at all costs. They demand dates that are not true, when you speak to the solicitor's they say they have never heard from anyone about exchange dates. They are difficult to get hold of and return calls. On...

This estate agent has tried to force us to use there in-house mortgage and conveyancing services by telling us the vendor will only sell to us if we do. We found this to be false and have been in touch with the vendor and she says it is total lies. This would have cost us £350 to use their services but we already had our mortgage arranged for free. After we told them we found out they lied to us they telephoned the vendor and told them we were not is a finance situate to proceed. Fortu...
