SDL Surveying celebrates as it clocks up 30 years

SDL Surveying Recently Turned 30 Years Old!

On Friday 6th September, we partied the night away as we celebrated turning 30 years old!

Watch a summary of how it all went down for yourself:

Our Surveyors and operations staff were invited to an outdoor party, which included pizzas from a wood-fired oven, an inflatable pub and classic hits spanning the three decades we have been running.

During the evening, Simon Jackson, our managing director, thanked all those who had helped make the company a success:

“SDL Surveying is 30 years old and that is an incredible achievement for any business, so we wanted to celebrate with a big party.

“We have had a great 30 years and the last few have been brilliant because we have won so much business. But we also have a fantastic future ahead of us, which is all down to the people who work here today – and I would like to thank them.”

First founded as Direct Valuations in 1989, we rebranded as SDL Surveying in 2016. With a commitment to innovation, SDL Surveying became the industry’s first panel manager when it was launched 30 years ago.

Since then, SDL Surveying has continued to break the mould, working with eTech to launch an iPad app for the valuation sector in 2012. This was followed by a desktop valuations service five years later – an industry first that allows surveyors to complete valuations on standard properties remotely.

Last year, we unveiled a new surveying product for buyers, Homescore, while continuing to expand our lender client base.

The 30th anniversary party was held at the head office in Nottingham.

    Great service from this company. Arranged by my lender, SDL rang to book an appointment … read more very quickly. Then rang back to offer an earlier slot. Paul rang 30 mins before arriving as promised. He was extremely pleasant, helpful and thorough. No complaint from us at all.

    The surveyor who attended was extremely professional, showing covid awareness and … read more politeness from the very start. He was informative, engaging and made what could have been a strictly procedural meeting, a more personable and enjoyable one. We shared good conversation and SDL should be made aware that this surveyor represents the company in an excellent way. Would definitely recommend their services as a result

    I thought the service provided by Richard from SDL Surveying was fantastic. Gave … read more me a call the day of the survey to talk through his findings. Then once I had received the report, kindly talked me through the final report and answered my many questions. In what can sometimes be a painful experience, Richard made things super simple.
