"Purchasing my new home at Woodlands Park in Bedford was a natural step up the property ladder for me.
"I was going to purchase a new property with a different house-builder, but I was able to part exchange my old home with Taylor Wimpey, which turned out to be a better deal and a bigger new house.
"In addition to giving me a good price for my old home and without the hassle of having to sell it myself, I received free carpets and integrated kitchen appliances, as well as a large shed for my new garden.
"And when Taylor Wimpey read in the local newspaper that I was running the London Marathon for charity at the end of April, they sponsored me £150!”
James Robinson, Woodlands Park resident
