To avoid at all costs

To avoid absolutely as very low cost scaffolding. We agreed on a cost for a 2 lifts scaffolding around a 3 bed semi-detached, but only half of the scaffolding had been installed; asking for another £350 to complete. The scaffolding itself was very poorly installed, starting to balance after only 4 weeks. All trades (bricklayer and roofer) complained about it. When LCS realised I would not pay any extra, they've worked out new Terms and Conditions (that they of course never communicated in first place) of a 4 weeks hire and tried to charge 10% every following week. Looking around, LCS is certainly not the cheapest and all competitors are quoting 6 to 8 weeks.

To avoid - waste of time and money

I booked a pallet truck on Wednesday for the following weekend. on Saturday morning, staff was surprised even though was registered on their book. Pallet truck was out some was given a "second" one which according to them was in working condition but only not lifting as high as it should! Eventually, it appeared the cylinder was leaking hence useless. On Monday morning, staff not surprised but charged regardless. 2 weeks trying to get hold of somebody - staff with very unprofessional manners in Upton branch - did not get anywhere. Lost of time and money! To avoid absolutely!

I've made an order on Saturday through their Facebook page with the owner - Alan, I've been advised I would be delivered on Tuesday at the earliest; this was not much an issue for me as long as before the following Friday. On Tuesday morning, delivery was moved to Friday - been asking first thing as planned to get work done and without notice became Friday afternoon. On the phone, very rude person (cowboy builder alike), and cancel the order/delivery. Sorted out quickly with a more professional company but wasted some times. Based on his explanation, I am actually not sure I would trust his product neither.

To avoid absolutely

Likely the worst estate agent I've been dealing with so far.
One house for sale visited on Sunday while estate agent was closed, called first thing on Monday morning when the agency was supposed to be opened, starting half an hour late to proposed directly the asking price. Unproffessional staff disclosing offers to everybody, asking unbelievable amount of information and documents ONLY to submuit an offer. Not a transparent process, estate agent usually dealing with <100k property, not experienced enough for larger properties. Incompetents! To avoid absolutely!!

By all means, avoid going to Howard Basford Ellesmere Port. Job quality is not great, service is rubbish and overall not cheap at all! I've been there twice for company car (as "approved" repairer is mandatory): first time the job had to be redone ; second time, they kept the car 3 and a half day for half a day repair!
