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: 94%
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: 73%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 71%
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.

Painting exterior of house;
Comprising one colour for the walls & a different colour for windowsills & brickwork.
2 handrails & down pipes also painted and Bobby sourced all the materials
 
Cost: £980

"One word - "Brilliant" ! Could not be happier with the work done and the finish is absolutely out-of-this-world. I've had real problems with another 'Trusted Trader'. painter so was really apprehensive, but Bobby is a top class professional who clearly cares about his work. His attention to detail, coupled with high quality expertise shines through in the job done. Hard-working, friendly; Does what he promises & listens to the customer-what a true 'Trusted
Trader' should be. I have 200% faith in his work and would definitely recommend him to others

Painting walls, ceiling and skirting boards and door frames.
 
Cost: £112

"Dealt with Bobby before when he did my mothers house. He agreed to paint my entire bedroom including the ceiling for a very reasonable price. Work was done quickly, cleanly and within the price agreed. No mess and he even hoovered the room when finished. A first class job from start to finish.

Would recommend him from start to finish. Would recommend him for any decorating work. "
