6.1 We must always make sure our clients have a good experience when dealing with us from start to finish. From using one of our many professional websites to speaking to the sales person to meeting the surveyor at the property to speaking to the secretary typing the report. Everybody needs to play a part in making dealing with the surveying company a pleasurable and happy experience for our client.
