Why don’t you advertise on Rightmove Commercial anymore?
To date, we have been the only online letting agent to hold a Rightmove Commercial membership, meaning that our adverts appered at the top of the search results, along with other traditional commercial agents.
Rightmove Commercial have changed their terms & conditions and now require that all agents include viewings within their commercial advertising fee as standard.
Not only is this change entirely at odds with the service we offer, but as a low-cost agent we are simply unable to absorb the cost of viewings. This would leave us no option but to pass this on to you, significantly increasing your costs, bringing them closer to those associated with advertising through a traditional agent.
We are aware some online agents offer advertising on the commercial area of Rightmove. These agents do not hold a Rightmove Commercial membership. Their commercial property adverts appear at the bottom of the search results under the sub-heading “additional commercial listings” and are not searchable by square footage.
This option has always been sub-standard to us and does not provide the exposure you need to let your property quickly. We are committed to offering you the best quality service and knowing that this option won’t fulfil your needs, it is just not acceptable to us.
We understand the commercial market is quieter than pre-COVID and, having spoken with several of you, you have said loud and clear that any increases in the cost of letting your properties at this time is not acceptable. So, we needed to find an alternative to Rightmove Commercial that offers you the same low-cost advertising option but with maximum exposure.
