Buying a residential park home with part exchange

  • “Our easiest move by far”
  • “We wanted a stress-free move and that’s exactly what Quickmove gave us!”

Tom and Marlene Tomkins moved to their luxury Tingdene residential park home on Orchard Park, Tewkesbury, at the end of 2018, and since then have never looked back. They tell us why using part exchange with Quickmove was their easiest house move ever.

Securing their perfect residential park home

Originally planning to buy a bespoke home, they discovered that their preferred show home on-park had become available again and they didn’t want to lose it. Owners Park Home Life recommended Quickmove Properties’ part-exchange service to secure it without the worry and delay of selling their existing home on the open market.

“We were a little sceptical at first,” Tom explained. “There was no obligation and so we just went through with the process, starting with Quickmove arranging for estate agents to value our property.

“The offer on our home and the property we were buying completely met our needs and, even better, we didn’t need to pay legal costs, which are covered by Quickmove. We wanted a stress-free move and that’s exactly what Quickmove gave us, moving us within weeks.

“Quickmove’s solicitors called us and said the money is in the bank and we’re ready when you are. We couldn’t wish for anything easier really. From start to finish Quickmove was brilliant. We’ve sold lots of homes over the years but this was the easiest move by far. We’d thoroughly recommend Quickmove to anyone buying a park home.”

Loving their new lifestyle

Tom and Marlene love their new lifestyle, too. Marlene explains:

“We’d been looking for a bungalow but couldn’t find one that didn’t need a fortune spending on it. Orchard Park is so welcoming and friendly. It’s close to towns, clean, tidy and nice and quiet. Our labradoodles absolutely love it; there’s lots for them to see from the home, with open fields just a minute away for walks, so they don’t need to be driven around. We love coming back to this home – it’s so cosy and light.”

As well as handling quick and hassle-free part-exchange moves, Quickmove can find you a suitable residential development such as Orchard Park from its recommended network, arranging viewings and negotiating on your behalf with

park owners.
