    We had an onsite visit to assess and provide advice and a quote; this was clear and helpful. We booked the work, which was done within a week or so and done well. Site was left in good order and advice given on how to use remote monitor. Price was competitive.

  • Oil tank replacement/installation

    10Verified Review

    Oil tank base replaced and new oil tank installed. The two engineers were efficient and courteous especially as my elderly parents were quite anxious regarding the work that needed to be done. Now I can rest assured that the heating system is safe and sound for the coming winter.

  • Installation of bunded heating oil tank

    9Verified Review

    Very efficient and courteous telephone communication and prompt responses to emails. The initial visit to assess the work was prompt and professional. The installation team arrived punctually and completed the work very quickly. Charged for a full day’s work which only took around 3 hours. On querying this, I received a comprehensive explanation of the costing process and was given a small good will discount. Good overall service.
