Like many family business owners, Meg Sievwright, who runs Sandy’s Carpets in Buckie with her husband and daughter, is busy looking after customers and dealing with stock, so is pleased to turn to the experts when it comes to business finance.
Meg has been a client of Goldwells in Buckie since 2014 when Goldwells merged with Cowie & Co. Goldwells provides accounting service and tax support for Sandy’s Carpets and also manages the business payroll. During the first coronavirus lockdown in 2020, Goldwells Buckie office manager Wendy Crosby also supported Meg with accessing government funding during the coronavirus pandemic.
Sandy’s Carpets, which was opened in 1994 by Meg and her husband Sandy, moved the business from Keith to Buckie after the large High Street shop became available. Having successfully traded in Keith for 10 years, the family was pleased the move to Buckie was successful, and after three years, they purchased the shop premises. Providing flooring of all types for commercial and residential premises, Sandy’s Carpets is a trusted name in the area and has served generations of families across Moray and north Aberdeenshire.
After having to close for a few months in 2020 due to the lockdown, the business is now busy helping customers who have decided to spend their holiday savings on home-improvements, and the shop has also had large commercial contracts which has kept Meg, Sandy and the four fitters busy.
Meg is grateful to Wendy and the Goldwells team in Buckie for their help and advice. “We have stayed with Goldwells as the service is good. Wendy is really helpful and it has been great to have her nearby if we have a query. The team has helped not just with accounts but do the payroll for the company which saves me a lot of time. Most days, we are busy with customers, so we are pleased that Goldwells can quickly sort out any HMRC queries, and, particularly during the height of the pandemic, it has been good to know that our business finance is in good hands”.
