SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors is rolling out free video tours of commercial properties across Scotland.

The firm revealed the move follows ‘universally positive’ client feedback received from a pilot programme run in the Grampian region.

Shepherd said it believes it is the first commercial surveying practice in Scotland to offer nationwide video tours on such a scale, with tours available of around 200 commercial properties from small retail outlets to large industrial premises.

James Morrison, an associate within Shepherd’s Aberdeen commercial department, said, “Our video tours enhance the commercial agency services that we can offer our long-established private and public sector client base. They have been designed specifically to meet the needs and demands of a growing number of clients who have expressed a wish to have an option to view videos of commercial properties.

“This has been an emerging trend prior to the advent of the coronavirus pandemic that has become more prevalent since, as clients have experienced frustration at being unable to physically view commercial property.”
