About Us

     
 
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: 99%
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: 99%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 97%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 91%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 74%
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.

Fitted new kitchen inclusive of all units, work tops, modifications to units, built in appliances, bespoke modifications to walls and tiling.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"Mike and the team were very professional. The work was carried out to a very high standard. Unforeseen problems were dealt with in a very efficient manner with little fuss.
It was obvious that Mike has many years experience and his attention to detail was really impressive.
The finished kitchen looked amazing (and still does) thanks to Mike's extra touches.
We would recommend Flatpack wizards (and we have been) to anyone looking to have a kitchen fitted.
Best regards,
Shaun and Lisa"

"We have used Flatpack-Wizards several times now, and we are never disappointed.

Mike, Jack and Rick were always on time, worked extremely hard and worked through some challenging problems such as the discovery of a long standing leak, and incorrect measurements on the product specifications of some of the bathroom fitted furniture. Mike got round these issues, thinking outside of the box and coming up with solutions that actually made the finished result even better than we had imagined. We are absolutely blown away with the fantastic results. Jack laid the floor in the master bedroom to perfection, despite problems caused by bowed flooring, and put together the wardrobes. Mike took out part of a partition wall to enable our existing built in wardrobe to be extended, and fitted a new frame and Ikea doors to match the other Ikea wardrobes.

Communication is always good, and we were consulted frequently regarding our wishes. Wendy kept us informed of any changes to timings and dates, and this enabled us to make arrangements ahead of time.

The team were as usual very tidy in their work and always cleared up when they had finished for the day.


In short, we cannot praise Flatpack-Wizards highly enough, and we will definitely be using them again in the future.

I used Flatpack Wizards to put together a sliding door wardrobe I had bought.
 
Cost: £55
 

"I found Flatpack Wizards really helpful from the first call. Once I knew when my delivery was arriving I called them and they arranged for someone to come on a Saturday morning (which was really helpful for me). On the morning the tradesman was going to be a little bit later than originally planned, however he messaged me to notify me. He was a very pleasant gentleman and got to work and made erecting the wardrobe look very easy. Really pleased with the work he did and would not hesitate in using them again."

Kitchen fitting. Flooring in hallway. Additional ducting for previous bathroom job.

"From first contact with Wendy, through job scoping, fit and snagging, this firm showed professionalism, attention to detail and pride in their work. You simply will not find better in terms of quality and value for money.

Due to consistent errors and delays by the suppliers of our kitchen, Mike and his team had to show real flexibility and come back several times to finish the work - absolutely NO fault of Flatpack Wizards - which they did with no complaints, kept us informed and worked around other jobs to ensure our kitchen fit was completed.

We would recommend and they will be our first call for any future works."

Triple door wardrobe with interior shelving, also they dismantled a large desk and carried it out which they didnít charge extra to do! 😃
 
Cost: £70
 

"The lad was on time, polite and helpful, he went the extra mile helping to carry/move some heavy items that I couldnít manage alone before installing the wardrobe. He was very professional and knew exactly what he was doing. The wardrobe is solid and looks amazing, he didnít leave any mess and he completed the job more quickly than I expected. I am extremely happy with the work and the price, I would have had a nervous breakdown trying to put all those pieces together so it was worth every penny. The lady on the phone who initially took my call was also very helpful and they were able to come out within a few days of my call to do the work. I would definitely recommend Flatpack-Wizards to anyone who didnít want to drive themselves insane over a pile of MDF 😂"

We had 3 large flatpacks to be made up.

"Was told about Flat-pack wizards who could assemble the items. Later for a house move we called them again to dismantle all three items then to reassemble them in our new home.
Very professional and speedy and can save a lot of wasted time trying to do the job yourself.

2 flatpack wardrobes (3 doors) had to be dismantled for a house move.
 
Cost: £65
 

"Dealing with flatpacks can be easy but sometimes they can be time consuming, difficult to understand also manage in confined spaces. Originally I had 2 large wardrobes and a chest of drawers to build. Family run business and Jack came and built the items in a few hours. This saved a lot of time for me whilst having to look after a disabled wife and coping with the house move.
Having another move, I contacted this company again as the wardrobes were too large to carry down the stairs.
Everything was explained and agreed. On the day the wardrobes were dismantled Jack came and within an hour the job was done. Quick, efficient and professional.
We have them booked to rebuild the flatpack wardrobes in our new home.
