Repair appointments

When you’ve got in touch with us to report your repair we will sort out an appointment that suits you. You can book a morning appointment (8am till 1pm) or one for the afternoon (12pm till 5pm). Find out how to report a repair here.

If you book in for a repair but then need to change your time slot or date it you can do that really easily.

When we visit you

All of us have ID badges that we will have for you to see when we visit you to carry out a repair. The badges have our full name, photo and our company contact info for in case you’d like to check that the person visiting you is who they say they are. We will always clear up after ourselves and make sure we protect your home from dust, paint or building materials so no mess is left after we’ve done our job.

Changing or cancelling your appointments

If you need to cancel your appointment completely or just change the time or date you can give us a call on 01724 279900 to let us know. Try and let us know as soon as possible so we can give someone else your repair slot that you no longer need. If you don’t cancel or re-arrange your appointment and we attend but can’t gain access, we may apply a recharge of £30.60.

It hardly ever happens, but if we can’t keep to the appointment we arranged with you, we will get in touch as soon as we know this. We will sort out a new appointment with you.
