WHAT A FIND!! They were at my home within 2 hours, diagnosed the problem, gave me a price, and then ordered the part required.  They returned at 9am the following day and about an hour later the boiler was fixed and Xmas saved.

    Sadly I never caught the tradesmans name... But whoever they were, were quick, efficient, informative and relatively educational. No mess left behind and did that we asked. Even offered us some really helpful services such as their reminder service for when our boiler service is due. I'll gladly use again, and recommend to anyone looking to have any boiler and/or gas works. Efficiency and friendly on the wallet, can't go wrong I say!
