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: 99%
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: 98%
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: 72%
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.

Removal & replacement of old worktops, sink & tap in kitchen
 
Cost: £313
 

"Mike & Jack arrived on time & promptly removed the old worktops, sink & tap. They installed the solid oak worktops, new sink & tap, then oiled the worktops, giving us instructions to leave it 6-7 hours before repeating the process another 2-3 times. They asked to use our garage to cut the new worktops due to bad weather, and then thoroughly cleaned up inside & out before leaving. They also took away all the old items & packaging for disposal.

They were both polite, friendly & professional and answered all our
questions. We will be using them again in the new year!"

Assembly of multiple, flatpack items

"I have used Flatpack-Wizard on numerous occasions to assemble flatpack furniture. Their customer service is worthy of a 5 star rating and their can-do attitude, friendliness and professionalism is absolutely the best. I would highly recommend this company, no job is too big or too small, frankly I wouldn't go anywhere else. I trust them enough to leave a key if I'm not there and they have never let me down. My trust in them is absolute to carry out the work quickly and professionally and they have always quoted reasonable rates. I have not put a rate in here as wouldn't know which rate to give as I have used them so many times. If you want a job well done and professional with a company who excels in customer service, give these people a call."

Old kitchen removal and new kitchen fitting plus various other odd jobs (e.g. tiling floors/walls/hearth, fitting skirting boards)
 
Cost: £3476
 

"It had always been intended that Mike would fit my kitchen, but he stepped in to help me finish a dragging house renovation project. He is very busy, but worked all sorts of odd hours to make this happen.

He, and his team, work to a very high standard and returned once the work was finished to rectify snags to this standard. They are tidy and courteous and trustworthy."

Kitchen remodelling, wall and floor tiling.

"Flatpack-Wizards exceeded all our expectations. The service received in all aspects was exceptional and at very reasonable cost. Mike is a perfectionist and whatever the requirement he will do whatever possible to meet the needs of the brief. The Kitchen and Utility was transformed to a unique and one off country kitchen with a beautiful Belfast sink and wonderful wood surfaces. The floor and wall tiling was beautifully done, floors were levelled and at all times order and discipline was maintained. This all round level of skill to undertake a remodelling brief smoothly and multi skilling constantly makes the service that is offered worthy of an excellent review. A very professional company that I am very happy to have worked with at a time which could have been very stressful. Thank you so much for all you have done."
 
 
Team:
Mike and his team and also great administrative and coordination from Wendy.

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 😂"
