I had an engineer from the company come to check my boiler. My boiler was old and I had been having problems with it so wasn't surprised to find that it wasn't repairable. I work full time and only had my week off to sort this out The engineer said he could fit a new boiler for me the same week. He came back on the Saturday to do the job. A nice new boiler fitted and old boiler taken away, a very thorough job done and no mess left. I was very impressed with the service given by this company and would certainly be using them again
