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: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 100%
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: 100%
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.

Interior decoration, single rooms, whole house, office refurbishment

"I've used Murphy's for quite a few jobs from quick room refresh to a whole house - everything was done exceptionally well and without any real disruption to the house during works.
Max is professional but does have an annoying habit of turning up when he says he will(joke!) a rarity for tradespeople these days!
Communication was always excellent and any changes/additions to the work - on advise of the team - was always felt to be in my interest of having a better finish and not simply to add cost to the job.
Have happily recommended to my friends and clients who will all attest to the quality of the work done by Murphy's"

Redecoration of whole house including exterior Sinking of set of mirrors into wall, plastering and painting Painting porch and repairing exterior lighting Sanding old mahogany doors and painting

"Max has undertaken work for us numerous times and is always willing to tackle little jobs as well as the bigger ones. Recently he redecorated most of the house including the exterior and we were delighted with his work. He is professional, polite and always respectful of you and your property. Max will always return if you have any small snagging issues and will only consider a piece of work completed when you are entirely satisfied with it, even if he has been paid. He will come back for nothing in his own time to rectify the smallest issue. We would recommend him most highly."

Max has done several jobs for us over the past five years. The jobs were mostly painting and decorating (bathroom, downstairs toilet, lounge and kitchen, but the lounge and kitchen included replacing three doors that included some carpentry work.

"Max is a competent worker, reliable and a pleasure to have around. His estimates for the jobs to be done are straightforward with no hidden costs. I would gladly recommend him."

Customer Review
 
Removing an old kitchen worktop and replacing it with a new one from Howdens. The old worktop was very hard to remove and the new one has to be cut carefully to fit around a sink and hob before installation.
 
Cost: £567
 

"We have used this small local firm for large and small jobs in recent years and been very happy with their work. They are honest, reliable and friendly, and the work is always done to a good standard for a reasonable price. They have always stuck to the quoted price, discussed the price of invoices for materials in advance and supplied copies of these. We would not hesitate to recommend them and will definitely be using them again in the future."

Customer Review
 
Refurbishment of a small two bedroom terraced house including two new bathrooms and a redesign of the kitchen. Redesign of the garden including relocating a shed and laying a patio.

"The firm was recommended to us by another customer who has had good experiences with them on several rental properties in the past. We were impressed with the firm's keenness to win and do the job. They were quick off the mark assessing the work to be done and estimating for it. Although the work took longer than originally planned, the firm stuck to the agreed budget and was entirely sensible about the few extra items that cropped up along the way. One or two smaller items were added along the way at no extra charge which was much appreciated. The approach to and quality of the work were ideal for this property and the budget we had in mind. The firm deserves to do will in its chosen market."
