Customer Reviews

Electrician Sidmouth

"Two bathrooms refurbished and a new kitchen - cannot fault the service provided by Darcy designing and James fitting the new Quantum kitchen; then Julian for fitting the new bathrooms and Chris (Newman) for the design brief. Ross did an excellent job too on all the electrics. All the work was completed to a high standard and on time, seamless co-ordination and communication on the part of the Ford's team. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fords to others, as that is how I found them in the first place, by recommendation."

Mrs Little, Budleigh Salterton

"The most competitive quote of the five obtained. First class service from start to finish. The Fitter was courteous and highly professional." (Engineer Mark Wakely)

Mr Bridges, Exeter

"Thanks to Fords for a very swift response to a dripping hot water tap which this morning became a steady stream. Tap now isolated until spare part available. 1st Class service from Darren the plumber."

Penny, Sidmouth

"I write to say how pleased I was with the service provided by Jamie, installing our new boiler over the last 3 days. He was polite, pleasant to talk to and explained things well, appearing very knowledgeable in his field. Please pass my thanks to him."

Mr Cole, Sidmouth

"Fords recently installed 3 additional radiators to extend our central heating coverage, during the 3 days 13th - 15th December 2017. Following the completion of the work, I wish to thank you for the excellent work carried out by your two engineers, Liam and Josh Lawrence during this time. They are a credit to your company for the thoroughness of their work on site, the tidying up they carried out on completion of the job and the excellent rapport they had with my wife and I during their 3 days on site. They described to us the work they were carrying out and politely answered the questions we asked of them. If they maintain the level of customer service they provided to us on this occasion they will both go far in their chosen career."

"On 27th November 2017, your Electrician Mark Broughton replaced two older XL12 Storage Heaters with new WPS 1.7kw Auto Heaters.

Works completed on time, including clearing up and demonstrating controls. Would definitely use again."

Mr & Mrs Treasaden

"Mark (Plumber) carried out the majority of the boiler installation to a very high standard of workmanship. Mark was later joined by his colleague, Ian (Electrician) who carried out the electrical side of the installation. As I requested a smart thermostat, it presented some additional problems, but all was sorted out speedily and to a high standard with everything working perfectly on completion. I have been using the new boiler with the smart thermostat for approximately 4 months now which has made significant savings compared to the old boiler it replaced. Another satisfied customer, thanks guys."
