Once the consultation has been carried out, a free no obligation written quotation will follow within 48 hours.
Our quotation will outline exactly what is covered, as per your instructions and a price.
If you are not quite at the stage of wanting to receive a home visit you can still take advantage of our Guesstimate tool.

Why Move to Dagenham?
Located in Greater London, Dagenham is a predominantly residential Thames side area, known for its now-declining industrial activity, including the once mighty Ford Dagenham car manufacturing plant.
The town is surprisingly rural in parts and its open spaces offer residents a village atmosphere.
In comparison to the hustle and bustle of many areas in London Dagenham is often favoured by older residents and families who prefer to avoid the excitement that boroughs closer to the city centre tend to have.
In recent years, more and more prospective purchasers are looking again at just how much Dagenham offers in the way of lifestyle and amenities.
The most obvious benefit are the excellent transport links. Dagenham is in Zone 5 and is served by the District Line at Becontree, Dagenham Heathway, and Dagenham East stations.
The second are the local property prices which sell for an average of £405,790, compared to London’s overall average of £699,812.
The town has a number of historic sites, a last reminder of its life as a rural village many years ago. The 14th Century Parish Church of St Margaret, and the grand and imposing Eastbury Manor House are both well worth a visit, as is nearby Barking Abbey.
Today all sorts of improvements are in the pipeline. New homes, offices and a cultural centre are all part of Barking & Dagenham council’s long-term plans.
Whilst planning permission has just been approved to unite some of London’s largest markets. Smithfield Market, along with Billingsgate and New Spitalfields markets, are all expected to move to the site of an old power station in Barking Reach, Dagenham in the next few years.
Already providing ample amenities for life, work, and leisure, moving forward, the borough has much more to look forward to in the future as well.
Dagenham Schools & Education
Schools in Dagenham fall under the Barking & Dagenham Local Education Authority.
Local schools cover all age groups from Nursery through to school leaving age.
Some of the best primaries include William Ford C of E Junior School, John Perry Primary School and the Leys Primary School.
Dagenham Park C of E School is one of the best secondaries. Only recently inspected, Ofsted’s glowing reports stated that “this is an inclusive school where leaders have high expectations for all pupils. Leaders want all pupils to be able to fulfil their potential.”
Older students have a choice of several FE colleges.
Barking & Dagenham College is located in Romford. A secondary education college with approximately 3000 full-time students. It offers a host of courses at all levels for 16–18-year-olds and adults aged 19 or over. The college also provides higher education and a range of apprenticeships.
Things to do in Dagenham
Dagenham is lucky enough to be able to present its residents with a vast variety of things to do.
Just a few miles away is Lakeside Shopping Centre – one of the largest shopping venues in Europe. Not only does it offer a mind-boggling number of clothing stores, but it also has a great choice of restaurants, a revolutionary new concept Vue cinema and a play centre.
If it is outside activities you enjoy, you will be pleased to know the town is packed with them.
Whether it is on foot or bicycle combined, Beam Valley Country Park, The Chase Nature Reserve, Rainham Recreation Ground and Rainham Marshes RSPB Nature Reserve make it feel more like you are in the middle of the countryside.
Historical sites such as Eastbury Manor House, owned by the National Trust are lovely ways to explore more about the town’s past. The Grade I listed building dates back to the Elizabethan period and makes for an interesting visit.

With world-class theatre in the West End and historic landmarks fit for royalty, there is no shortage of fun and exciting things to do when you plan a day trip to nearby London.
After the second world war one of the world’s largest public housing developments began in Dagenham. Over an area of four-square miles, as many as 100,000 homes were constructed.
The busy housing market today offers buyers a varied selection of homes for sale across the town and a good many are semi-detached. These sell for between £240,000 up to £525,000.
Although the town forms part of Greater London, property prices are substantially lower.
What you would expect to pay to purchase a one-bedroom flat in the City centre, you can afford a three-bedroom home in Dagenham.
First time buyers have seen the potential here too and are snapping up the hundreds of newly built trendy apartments.
Bellway are advertising a waterside development of 1-2 & 3-bedroom apartments at their Fielders Quarter site which start at £251,000.
L&Q also have a new site called Beam Park where you can purchase a home under the shared ownership scheme whereby you part-own and part-rent your property. Prices here start at £65,626 for a one-bedroom apartment.
With the average cost of a home rising by almost £37,000 over the past five years, it is no surprise that Dagenham has become increasing popular across the board with all types of buyers.
