Select Property Maintenance, based at Lupton near Kirkby Lonsdale, have been selected to offer free advice to hundreds of hotel owners, B&Bs, restaurants, bars and retailers, across Cumbria's tourism industry. Cumbria Tourism's 3,300 plus members will now benefit from the services of Cumbria-based buildings experts Select Property Maintenance Ltd (SPM).

Select Property Maintenance, a company with 15 years’ experience and tradesmen of the highest skill and standard, will now be on board alongside Cumbria Tourism to extend their support provisions. The partnership with Select Property Maintenance will mean that members have a direct line to advice on all matters of property maintenance, from painting and decorating, kitchen installation, general DIY, garden works, new builds, tree surgery, fencing and more.

Members will receive advice on what work may be required on property and grounds, an idea on costing for particular jobs and the necessary procedures involved when a particular job takes place. This advice could be invaluable to give a business an idea of the scale of disruption a job may entail, or how to avoid any disruption at all. Select Property Maintenance has also offered to provide a price checker facility to ensure no members are the target of rogue traders.

Select PM’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) led them to approach Cumbria Tourism with the idea of a service to provide assurance to its members on issues relating to property maintenance, such as costs and technical compliance. Cumbria Tourisms decision to work with Select Property Maintenance was secured when Select Property Maintenance demonstrated their proven abilities in hotel renovation, groundworks, construction and garden landscaping. Select PM’s portfolio of past jobs gave Cumbria Tourism the encouragement they needed to take on Select Property Maintenance in this new advisory role.
