No call out costs. We offer no call out cost policy which means we are more than happy to attend and give advice / diagnose an issue. However, if work is to be carried out there and then to fix a problem, the customer will be given a fixed price quotation on the spot.

Fixed price quotations. Quotations sent by us are a fixed price unless otherwise stated. The only time this price will and can change is if a customer asks for additional work to be carried out, not previously discussed or quoted for. This price includes both labour and materials and where necessary other trades people too. We are under no obligation to give full breakdown costs on fixed price quotations.

Quotation period. Quotations are only valid for 30 days post receipt via email or writing. Any quotations accepted after 30 days of receipt are entitled to a revision to ensure no materials have increased in price.

Materials. We prefer to supply all materials as we know of their quality and have built trade relations with suppliers over our years of trading. Items that are wrong or faulty and supplied by us, are taken out of our time and cost. We do not warrant or guarantee goods supplied by the customer.
