Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 98%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 99%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 95%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 76%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

"I have already written one report and description of Graeme Heywood's work for us. It has always been of the highest quality and we give him 10 out of ten under every heading. His last jobs were assembling and fixing in place two large bookcases, hanging several medium size pictures and fixing in place a very large carpet. First class in every way"

Graeme has been at my house three times in the past to take care of a variety of jobs. These include replacing door handles, fitting new seals on shower doors, replacing mouldy silicon sealing, affixing tiles to stone (exterior), making a wooden step to balance a piece of furniture, fixing a broken toilet, and quite a few other jobs.
 
Cost: £150
 

"Graeme is easy to interact with, dates for work to be carried out were organised by email. On each occasion, Graeme came out to take a look at what needed to be done, and gave me a rough idea of cost based on the time he estimated to be necessary to carry out the work. The estimates have always turned out to be spot on.

Graeme is reliable, polite, punctual, tidy and he works efficiently. Most importantly, his work is of a very high standard. I wouldn't go to anyone else."

Repair of plaster work around window, extending hatch to eave space and flooring of eave space with chipboard loft panels.
 
Cost: £299
 

"Very pleased with the work carried out, flexible and good communication with regards to viewing work to be carried out and swiftly supplying a quote. Graeme was extremely polite, honest and hard working completing the work in the time quoted and to a really great standard.

No problems and despite the plaster repair job requiring more work than initially thought on removal of the PVC surrounds, he completed the work in time and slightly less than initially quoted.

Would definitely contact Graeme again for future jobs."

Graeme sorted out a leaking shed roof and trimmed a long hedge for us.
 
Cost: £170
 

"He was very helpful from the start, giving good suggestions about how to solve the shed roof problem and giving a clear quote for the work expected. He did the jobs on the day planned and was very effecient and pleasant. As we had discussed the hedge took a little longer than e pelted and that had been discussed and agreed with us that the quote was as close as possible. The final price was very slightly over that and a very reasonable cost for his time and materials used.

Very pleased with the work done for us."
