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: 92%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 90%
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.

To supply paper and paint were required. To paper kitchen walls and bedroom ceiling to do remedial repairs to stair and sitting room ceilings.
To paint kitchen, bathroom, bedroom hallway and stair ceilings and walls.
To repair and paint sitting room ceiling.
 
Cost: £920

"Jim at Mel Decor was great at his work and really friendly. He arrived when arranged to give his quote for the work required there was no pressure at any time to employ him to do the work.
Jim again kept in touch and arrived when planned for the work required.
He worked very efficiently and was very tidy, clearing and cleaning.
Behind himself at every turn. He discussed the work to be done and helped with advice on colors and wallpapers. I would definitely recommend Jim to friends and family. I was very comfortable with Jim in my home and with leaving him alone in my home when I had to go out for any reason. "

Interior decorations of front entrance lobby, lounge, rear entrance lobby, master bedroom and bathroom.
 
Cost: £2000

"This job, though small, was complex and completed to a tight schedule just before Christmas. Jim Meldrum was unfailingly punctual, cheerful and reliable. His work was of a very professional standard, and he carried out several small improvement within the price, even though they had not forced part of the original quotation. We look forward to using him again."
