Albrite House Clearances
Liverpool | House Clearance
Prompt, efficient and professional.
5
We needed a firm to empty my mother-in-law's house after her sad death, and picked Albrite mainly because of the excellent online reviews. We're certainly glad we did, because the reviews were clearly well deserved! When we first met with Eddie at the house, we understood it was just for an estimate, but he turned up with his van "just in case". His estimate for complete clearance was considerably less than we'd expected, and once we agreed he started the job straight away. A day and a half later, it was done; the house emptied (and even swept out!), and they even took the washing machine round to the neighbour's house, as we'd promised it to him. Every appointment we made with them was kept promptly, and Eddie's approach to us was entirely sympathetic, in view of the sad circumstances. We would recommend Albrite's services to anyone.

B Jenkins & Sons
Liverpool | Funeral Directors
Outstanding professionalism.
5
We engaged Jenkins & Sons for the funeral of my mother-in-law due to their local reputation. We are certainly glad we did!

From our first meeting with Gary right up to being driven back to the house after the funeral, everything was handled with exemplary efficiency, empathy and sheer professionalism, but also with a "light" touch which was a welcome contrast to the "gloom and doom" approach associated with some undertakers.

When costs were being discussed at our first meeting, Gary was at pains to explain how these could be minimised, rather than trying to push extras onto us. We didn't actually go for the cheapest option, but were made well aware of its availability.

In fact, the total cost was substantially less than we had anticipated, and even then nearly half of it consisted of Liverpool Council cemetery fees!

We are truly grateful to B. Jenkins & Sons for making a sad occasion pass as painlessly as possible, and would recommend their services to anyone.

Kwik-Fit
Liverpool | Tyres
Useless, incompetent, dangerous.
1
Anyone who uses KwikFit on Edge Lane should put their psychiatrist on danger money. They are a shower of incompetent spanner-monkeys who I wouldn't trust to mind my cat, never mind service my car. I swore I'd never use them again after they watched me drive away WITHOUT BRAKES, and I'd only taken it in for an exhaust job! However, as they're so close, I took the car in to look at a tyre which was losing pressure daily. After four hours they told me there was nothing wrong with the tyre, and made me feel like a bit of a prat. I then drove to Knutsford, at motorway speeds, to stay overnight, only to find the tyre flat the next morning. Fortunately, a PROFESSIONAL outfit, ATS Tyres in Knutsford quickly spotted the problem... a two-inch nail in the tyre....yes, the same tyre KwikFit assured me there was nothing at all wrong with. If this outfit is really authorised to do MOT's, the authorities should be thinking again, because they are not only incompetent, but downright dangerous!

Martin's Pest Control
Liverpool | Pest and Vermin Control Services
Excellent service
5
I called Martin late on a Saturday afternoon to look at a rodent problem in a rental flat I own. He attended the flat early on the Sunday morning and dealt with the problem efficiently using traps and poison; also gave me some valuable advice on how to prevent rodent entry as far as possible. A quick and efficient service at a very reasonable price.

Domestic Appliance Repairs, Liverpool
Liverpool | Dishwasher Repairs
Grateful thanks
5
Many thanks to this chap ( I assume it was Brendan) for fixing the problem with my oven over the phone and for no charge! Admittedly I should perhaps have noticed that the oven had switched itself into "timer" mode rather than manual when the Smart meter engineer turned the mains power off and on again this morning, but as I never use it in timer mode it never occurred to me. So thanks again Brendan, both for the advice and for not calling me a complete prat!

Liver Electrical Ltd
Liverpool | Electricians
True professionalism at a fair price.
5
I chose Liver Electrical because I needed a properly qualified electrician to undertake some work on a rental property and ensure that it was done to the correct standard and properly certified.

From the outset it was clear that Colin and Barry were true professionals, who turned up when they said they would, made appropriate and valuable suggestions and recommendations, and with Colin taking care to explain exactly what was needed and what they were doing.

No complaints at all with the finished job, and I will certainly be using them again for any future electrical work.

Liverpool Window Repairs Ltd
Liverpool | Double Glazing Repair
Friendly, quick, efficient and a fair price.
5
I had a problem with the opening section of a double-glazed window, in that the internal mechanism had corroded away to nothing and was incapable of closing or locking. Moreover, my amateurish attempt to patch it up had probably made things worse, and I was convinced I was looking at replacing the whole opening section. Anyway, having emailed a description and photos of the problem to Karl at Liverpool Window Repairs, he said he could simply replace the mechanism, despite the complication of my own attempts. Sure enough, he came out, sorted the problem quickly and effectively, all for about a third of what I'd expected to pay. A great relief to me, and I'd recommend his services without hesitation.

Call Paul Locksmith
Liverpool | Locksmiths
Fantastic service
5
Having carelessly locked ourselves out when leaving for the airport, we had to contact Paul from Madrid in order to arrange for him to meet us outside the house on our return. Everything went like clockwork, with him keeping in touch by text, finally arriving outside the house shortly before we did!

We were back inside about 30 seconds later and able to relax after what had initially seemed like a potential nightmare. I can't recommend Paul's service too highly.

Thank you for your Business.. Kind Regards Paul.

AJK Driveway & Patio Design
Liverpool | Paving and Driveways
Second review - 5 stars again
5
Having already used AJK in Summer 2016 (see my review of 21 July 2016), there was only one firm to contact when we needed a similar (though slightly bigger) paving job doing just 6 months later. Instead of the previous heat wave, this time it was rain and freezing cold the lads had to contend with, but once again without a break; the whole job was done in 3 days, and to the same exemplary standard. Even though access was difficult and the slope of the ground and path presented challenges, they took this all in their stride. So instead of the previous potholed, weed-choked mudbath we jokingly called a lawn, there is now an attractive and usable paved area that provides a truly welcoming approach to the flat. I couldn't recommend them more highly.
