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: 93%
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: 83%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 77%
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.

Customer Review
 
I was looking for someone to clean my fascias and clear and clean my gutters and down pipes.
 
Cost: £100
 

" I got in touch with this firm and requested a quote. They came very promptly to see what I required and inspected the job. They were very professional in their handling of my requirements and showed me their brochure of the work which they undertake. When I accepted the price given they gave me a date when they would be able to carry out the work.
They arrived on the agreed day and carried out the work to a very high standard. They left the surrounding area clean and replaced any plant pots or other obstacles which needed to be moved for the ladders to be used. I was very satisfied with the whole process.I have nothing more to add to th comments above. Very professional firm."

Cleaning of house gutters
 
Cost: £65
 

"I was looking for someone to clean house gutters and I was pleased I found this company to do the work. Mark conducted himself conscientiously and professionally throughout and did a great job of clearing away what was required and willingly gaining access to parts of the roof that were not easily accessible. I was completely satisfied with his work and results."
