Our office is closed at present due to Covid-19 restrictions –We would ask therefore that where possible New Client Forms are completed online to avoid delay and that for the time being if you need to send postal items that they are sent by ordinary delivery or Tracked only.
Please do not post items which need signing for as there may not be anyone at the office to receive and sign for them.
Please do not send originals as AvMA cannot accept responsibility for these.
