Toby who came out and surveyed the job knowledgable gave us confidence and teansparent on what was needed doing. What can I say Ian and Ken punctual,tidy, professional from start to finish and respected our property. They are a credit to the company. Would definately use this company again if needed.

  • Woodworm treatment and chemical damp proofing

    10Verified Review

    Active Services from the start to end have been fantastic, transparent and honest. The office staff have been generous with holding appointment without deposit while we wait for a house sale to go through, as well as explaining terminology and processes. The surveyor was detailed and comprehensive in his reporting, and was even kind enough to swing by the property a second time to explain the report in person. The operatives who did the work were tidy, polite and punctual. I would recommend Active Services!!!

    Excellent firm . The survey and all the works was carried out promptly, at the agreed time, promptly and with excellent attention to detail. They tidied up/finished off immaculately too. Would definitely recommend and use again if required.

    From the outset we had complete confidence that we had made the right decision in choosing Active Services to deal with this job. Fran in the office is the initial contact, both efficient and approachable. Toby, who surveyed the job, equally so. The fixed price quote gives reassurance too. Well, what can we say about our Three Musketeers? They arrived exactly when expected. They were polite and respectful of our property. The job was carried out three times as quickly as we had the dream team - in a puff of smoke they had tidied up and left! Definitely recommend this company 100%
