Bristol, Great Britain -- 10 October 2005 --
The Great British Antiques Web is launching a free advisory service by email for anyone planning an antiques buying visit to Great Britain and would like to travel independently and get the most from their tour.
With a wealth of geographical knowledge of Britain and an up to date database of the British antiques trade together with reputable contacts in all major British Antiques Associations, The Great British Antiques Web will be pleased to answer queries, suggest routes, offer information on where to visit, suggest packers and shippers, advise on car and van hire companies and recommend the best places to stay along the route from B & B's to hotels. In general how to get the best results from a British antiques visit.
In addition from early 2006 Ron Heath, owner of The Great British Antiques Web will be offering a customised courier service to chauffeur small groups of one to three direct to dealers premises, aiming to save time and expense by matching clients requirements with current stock lists of the vendors.
The courier service will be available from most major British airports and will visit any specified area of the UK, but will specialise mainly on the West of England as it is one of the highest concentration antiques areas in Britain. Not only is the West of England well served by the antiques trade but the region will be of even further interest to the US based antiques buyer particularly now that a daily direct trans-Atlantic flight has been established between New York (Newark) and Bristol International Airport by Continental Airlines, allowing the visitor to fly directly into the centre of the region and with many resources being easily accessible, he or she could be down to business within an hour or so of arrival in Britain.
Furthermore, Continental's New York to Bristol flight is not restricted to those in the immediate NY area, with their extensive network of flights in the USA, travellers can easily connect to the convenient departure (20.55) for the Bristol flight at their Newark hub.
Those needing a chauffeur service will benefit from meet and greet assistance on arrival in the UK and will ensure that clients are on the road as quickly as possible. The prime objective of The Great British Antiques Web is to liaise closely with clients before their visit to determine their requirements and establish a route with overnight stops planned accordingly. Ron Heath says, "Our service is not a sightseeing tour of Britain, working to a pre-defined route our objective will be to get our clients to those places that he or she has chosen to visit quickly. We realise that time is at a premium and the clients visit must be as cost effective as possible".
