Graeme kept appointment to inspect work this morning – and helpfully texted me when he was on his way. Has undertaken to send estimate of cost and to carry out agreed work by the end of next week, on a day to be agreed when estimate sent. First impression of efficient and friendly electrician; very encouraging start. Will report again when work completed., and defer rating until then.
Ellie has decorated a number of rooms in our house, including sitting/living rooms, bedrooms, hall, stairs and landing, and outside porch including the front door. She has a particular talent for visualising colour schemes and making recommendations, whilst respecting our wishes and preferences, and we have always been delighted with her ideas. Ellie is extremely thorough and careful; she is meticulous with the details, never cutting corners nor skimping on the preparation. I believe this is because she takes great pride in her work. Her prices are reasonable and her estimates fair. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her and would never ask anyone else to decorate my home.

I am most grateful to James who immediately responded to my enquiry and allayed my anxiety. Swiftly sorting out a leak from the loft, he arranged for the kitchen ceiling to be re-plastered in conjunction with re-decoration of the room. He also rectified the damage done by a previous contractor with respect to the door frame and hanging of the door. The quality of the work is superb and the overall service excellent. I was also impressed by the cleanliness of the operation, and the fact that the kitchen and associated area were left vacuumed and mopped. This is real value for not only money but peace of mind.
James did a great job. He managed to squeeze me into his busy timetable and came round exactly when he said he would. He was very friendly and helpful and I was really happy with the job. I’ll definitely be using him again.
James responded quickly and was prompt, helpful and reliable. He was a pleasure to do business with. Thanks, James and Dawn.
Having been introduced to James via scuseme.co.uk, I arranged for James to visit my apartment to wall mount two plasma TVs. Quite a small job and one that some tradespeople would not bother with. James was polite, courteous and did a great job, for a very reasonable price. I am very pleased with the outcome and am now exploring the possibility of working with James on a bigger project. Strongly recommended.
James did some things for me which were just as I required & then I had an accident, was out of action for months during which time James & friends built me a downstairs loo & shower which is so beautiful & very luxurious. His build has enabled me to retain my independence, altered my daily living entirely & I cannot express my gratitude & thanks nearly enough. This is a lovely, bespoke project which is amazing for me & for my family. I hope to keep the friendship we started when other work is necessary on the property. I will not be looking for anyone else !
James has done a marvellous job rebuilding our wall. He was able to source suitable salvaged bricks to match the old one’s ( and faced lots of questions from passers by about where to get them) and the result is excellent. He is also tidy, reliable and I highly recommend him.
Called James after he was recommended by Scuseme, he answered the phone, he came to see the job in just a couple hours, made an appointment, came on time with an sms before arriving, gave a realistic quote for the job to be done and in a couple of days he fixed the problem. Polite and clean worker. Very recommended.
We used James services for increasing the opening of the chimney breast as well as re pointing the existing bricks. We came across few issues but this did not phase James, you can tell he is an experienced builder. The Job took 5 days on time and on budget. I defiantly will use James for my future project, he is really good builder. Thanks
James was very nice, very easy to deal with, very prompt and very reasonable. I’d recommend him to anyone. I also think that Scuseme is a brilliant idea.
Ms Deyong, Cambridge
Scuseme recommended James. His response was quick and efficient. The job was to move a kitchen unit, part tile a kitchen. The job was carried out extremely well. The end result is of a very high standard. We then went on to ask James to check the guttering and to fix a tv to the wall. Again both jobs were carried out quickly, and to an admirable standard. We shall be asking James back to undertake more work. The pricing is reasonable and James’s work is consistently of a high standard. Everything is clean and tidy when he leaves and he is a very courteous, friendly man to deal with.
Claire Perry-Holmes and Richard Perry, Cottenham, Cambridgeshire
I basically needed a gas cooker installed. He arrived bang on time, identified that I had made a mistake measuring the new cooker ! Disconnected the old one , installed the new one until I could get the right size cooker in. Returned and installed the right one, also issued me with a gas saftety certificate which I noticed was massively out of date . He and his assistant were very helpful and pleasant, even bleeding my rads for free ! Highly recommended this company. Also highly recommended this service for being so quick at finding me someone! Really amazing and would definitely recommend Scuseme to anyone!
We asked James to make and fit a garden gate at the rear of our house. He responded promptly and, in an exploratory visit, offered several options leaving us free to chose materials and fittings to suit our taste and budget. The gate he made was perfect. Fitting it presented challenges as one of the gate posts was irregular. He overcame this and the final job is faultless. Throughout his day’s work James was hard working and pleasant and I warmly recommend him.
Stephen Plant, Cambridge
Now that I think about it there are probably only two rooms in our house that Ellie hasn’t decorated! Ellie is definitely our go to person for home decoration. We have been using her services for over 5 years now. Ellie is 100% reliable and always does a fantastic job. She has painted walls and paintwork in our hallway, kitchen, showroom, dining room and three bedrooms. Ellie has also restored and painted a pine cupboard, which now looks fabulous. She has sourced two kitchen stools which she restored and painted. Ellie is an extremely conscientious and skilled worker. No detail is too small, and she has a very good eye for colour. We wholeheartedly would recommend Ellie to complete a professional job that will enhance your home.
Sharon Wattley & David Evans
Ellie has just completed an extensive redecoration at our address. Not only is all work completed to a very high standard, Ellie gave great advice regarding colour choices and paint. She also went above and beyond; building a cupboard and shelving in our downstairs loo and putting right several problems left from previous Trades work. The quote was very competitively priced and I will definitely call on her for future work. Highly recommend!
Sally Clipson, Soham
We recently used Pete and his team for our kitchen extension and renovation. What first struck us about Pete was how personable he was and the fact that he came to assess the job twice before he gave us a quote. Once the work started we didn't get any of the usual stresses that come with a building project such as this. Pete and his team are a complete pleasure to have around. Their workmanship standards and attention to detail are second to none. We wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending Pete or using them again.
Diane & Rob Gaskin
We were very happy with Mitch – he was quick to reply to our enquiry, kept us fully informed about progress, worked fast and cleared up every day, finished on time and costed everything within our budget. Definitely recommend!
Mitch responded to our enquiry very quickly and met us by appointment to view the job. His quotation arrived the following day and we asked him to start asap. He is easy to deal with, does what he promises and his work is of a high standard. He has a good network of associated tradesmen and, from our experience, can handle all aspects of building works.
Phil Hadfield, Cambridge
When I asked Mitch to strip out my flat in Cambridge and provide all new electrical and plumbing services, new kitchen, bathroom and boiler, the job was handled professionally, on time, at the agreed price and with no complaints from my neighbours.
George Church, Cambridge
I have used Mitch for various jobs in my house. The work has always been completed to a high level, on time and at a very competitive rate. Mitch is very clean while he works and always leaves this area cleaner than he found it. I would recommend Mitch to anybody Thanks
I have had work done by Mitch for a number of years. This has ranged between small maintenance jobs to fitting new kitchens, bathrooms, and entire refurbishments. I have always been extremely pleased and totally satisfied with his work, he is always reliable and keeps to his time schedules. I will not hesitate to use his company in the future.
Jane Martin, September 2019
As BTL Landlords with a number of properties in Cambridge, we cannot recommend Mitch more highly. Over many years now we have relied on Mitch, who has completed for us total house refurbishments, replacement kitchens and bathrooms, total house redecoration, tiling, stud walls, patio laying, and even skilled carpentry such as replacing gates and doors, etc. He has a team including electricians and a plumber at hand, and can project manage and undertake all work for HMO or any house requirements. Mitch is not only skilled, speedy and efficient, he is also fair and reasonable regarding charging and quotes. Mitch has responded quickly to our occasionally urgent needs many times and is totally reliable. Finally, I must add that Mitch is an extremely nice, positive, and intelligent person, who can both listen to and understand your needs and is a pleasure to work with.
We have used Nin’s services for nearly two years and found his workmanship of an excellent standard. He and Graham have received rave reviews from the people we serve, largely over 80’s. They are always presentable and willing to assist us at a moment’s notice to help with our hospital discharge service. Our service users often need ‘kid gloves’ as they can be extremely vulnerable. Nin is always patient and understanding towards their needs, this is imperative for our service and are very grateful to have CLS working with us in supporting the older generation. Nin has had all the relevant DBS checks and attended the training we need to provide our contractors. I would be happy to speak with you directly should you feel the need.
Andy Wicklen, Service Manager, Age UK CAP
I operate a property investment company in Cambridge with a portfolio of various residential property. As director of the company I have appointed Nin to undertake various works and he now undertakes the majority of maintenance work for the business. I find Nin to be very professional and capable of undertaking a large range of maintenance and improvement tasks and would not hesitate to recommend him.
Ben Lenton, Cambridge Land Consultants
Nin was great. He came the next day and did a small electrical job quickly and efficiently. He even did another minor plumbing job for me while he was here. I will definitely use him again.
My sash window is as good as New. What a friendly and great worker Nin is! He did the job within a few days of the inquiry, a real perfectionist and easy to have around. Cleared up immaculately- also helped me with another urgent job that came up unexpectedly. I wouldn’t hesitate to have him do other house maintenance in the future as his pricing was very fair .
Pete had been recommended to us by neighbours and we were very pleased we chose them for our extension. We already had plans passed but we wanted to make some changes which Pete helped with. He listened to our ideas and what we wanted from our project. When the quote was accepted and the work booked in, we had a schedule detailing stages of works and payments. If we added anything during the build (we added velux windows for example) any extra costs were invoiced separately so there were no surprise costs at the end. Pete’s team were very skilled, extremely helpful, nice people who made the build as easy to live with as they possibly could. Pete was always on hand if any issues arose. All in all, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pete & his team if we had any building work again, we would definitely book them.
Mr & Mrs Phillips, Newmarket
Please know I am more than happy to recommend Pete and his team to any prospective clients. I am willing to open my home and to share our positive experience working with you, your employees and subcontractors. Your work ethic has attracted a very professional, neat and courteous group of knowledgeable craftsman. I do not mean to imply the entire process went without a hitch, (mostly my doing from changing my mind) when problems did arise, both during and after construction, you were always quick to respond. Issues were resolved to our satisfaction without hesitation. The number of people that have commented on the beauty of our home is staggering. It has enhanced the way I live greatly and improved my family time. It is amazing to think that I have been living in our extended and renovate house for over 6 months now and it truly has become my home. Having had such a great experience the first time round I would not hesitate to use them again.
Did a great work for me. The Empress Pub, Cambridge
The Empress Pub, Cambridge
Very reliable, punctual, professional and friendly. Graeme responded very quickly to my email, came the following day to see the work which had to be done and gave us a quote, the job was then completed within 48 hours. We are very pleased!
Dan and his team have replaced an 80 ft garden fence and as a result of that good work returned to make good & pain the exterior of the third floor of our house in April/May of this year. We were very impressed with Dan and team professionalism and work ethic which combined with his competitive price meant we were happy to refer them to friends as well.
Graeme was punctual, helpful, friendly and did an excellent job. Would use again and definitely recommend.
Dan has worked here for me at first as a gardener but now is a great deal more than that because he has acquired a number of very useful skills. Dr Piers, Grantchester, Cambridge
I have no hesitation in recommending Graeme. Not only is he a real professional at his trade but also gave an honest quote, responded promptly and came exactly when he said he would.
With our children getting older we decided rather than moving that we would extend our home with a two storey extension consisting of 2 additional bedrooms (one en-suite), utility room and enlarged the existing lounge and Kitchen. P.M.H.I (Pete Matthews Home Improvements) came highly recommended from our Architect as a contractor they had worked with previously, who was professional and worked to a very high standard. Pete provided us with a competitive quotation and when engaged created a comprehensive project plan detailing what activities were being conducted each week. We were kept fully updated at all stages of the project with emailed and personal updates during Pete’s visits. As with any project certain things changed during the build and we were fully consulted enabling us to manage any variations. Pete’s and his team were highly skilled, friendly, professional and worked to a very high standard on all areas of the build. We decided to live in the house during these alterations and Pete’s team ensured that measures were in place to ensure that this was possible. I would highly recommend P.M.H.I (Pete Matthews Home Improvements) to anyone thinking of an extension and I have already passed their details onto a number of friends looking for a contractor they can trust. Darren Watson, Kennett
Neptune Softwash Solutions have done a very good job removing algae from my house, gutters and down pipes, I am extremely pleased with the outcome. Care and attention was taken at all times and nothing was too much trouble to attain satisfactory results. – Satisfied Customer, Newport Essex
Absolutely, 100%. Â Great effort was taken to ensure property was protected. Derek and Nigel went over and above to ensure a very challenging job was completed to the best standards. Beyond expectations, Â arrived in advance of agreed time both days and worked incessantly until the end of the day. Ensured they got the job done regardless of the problems that arose. Absolutely over the moon. From the effort and investigation at the two (free) visits to quote, to the lovely fired-up stove they commissioned at the end. I would not use another company as long as D & N Chimney Services Ltd is around. A huge difference. Derek and Nigel ensured my stove was installed and looking wonderful with minimum disruption. Derek and Nigel, thank you so much, you are the most honest, diligent and trustworthy Company I have worked with in a long time. Thank you for the extra visits, perseverance and friendly approach, as well as all the hard work. Nicola, Great Shelford, Cambridge – Flex Liner
We saw the commencement and finish to the works, we were impressed with the way the house was protected. We saw both Nigel and Derek, they always turned up at the set time. We were particularly grateful with their help in respect of the property keys as other projects carried out simultaneously. Very smart and how it worked was explained comprehensively. Mr & Mrs Rees-Jones, Cambridge – Flex liner

We recently had a wood burner installed, some chimney work and ceramic lining. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Very punctual, clean and polite. Lovely job. Highly recommended.” Mrs Simpson, Hardwick
Mrs Simpson, Hardwick
Basil Gaskin was able to start the work quickly and a mass of old ivy on a brick wall was expertly dealt with and all the rubbish removed. Work also included some general pruning which caused a bit of a mess but this was dealt with and the patio left beautifully clean and tidy. Hard landscaping is their forte but Basil took on a comparatively small job very well and I would be happy to recommend him
We needed to have our grass restored after the hot dry summer.. Basil started work with the turf sooner than we expected, and completed it satisfactorily and promptly. He and his team also trimmed some shrubs and trees for us.
Rob from CPH was helpful from the start, even though they were clearly very busy. Rob arranged for Joe to arrive less than 24 hours after first contact, with the correct spare parts, as diagnosed over the phone. Joe fixed our heating within half an hour.
We had been having nothing but trouble with our 10 year-old Baxi boiler for nearly 3 years. Rob was aware of the limitations of this model for our type of house. His argument for buying a new Vaillant together with an additional pump and a filter was convincing. He and Joe acted quickly to install the new boiler and made a good job.
Dan Peck made an excellent job of replacing rotten wood in my patio doors. He will be doing some further work for me later this year and I have no hesitation in strongly recommending him. Ann Horn, Cambridge
Dan responded promptly and did a great job fixing a warped back door. It closes beautifully now. Very friendly, clear and efficient. Would highly recommend and will definitely be booking him again in future. Helen Robbins, Cambridge
Dan was friendly and helpful from first contact, site visit and completed the window repair (broken window pane) we needed to an excellent standard. I am happy to recommend him.
Dan and his team reduced the height of a long hedge quickly and efficiently.
Prompt excellent service. Dan replied immediately came to assess the work and replaced the cross beam on the carport less than 24 hours later. Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.
Dan built two frames for patio sail awnings- they look great and are just what I wanted. The quality of the workmanship is great and Dan is very pleasant and easy to work with. He returned my initial call promptly, and quickly scheduled a visit, gave me a quote, and was able to complete the work the following week. I’m very happy with his work and will definitely be using him again.
Prompt and personable, he was with me very fast, instantly diagnosed the problem and did a quick and thorough service of the non-functioning lock. I will certainly want to use him again should the need arise (and it surely will), and am most grateful to Scuseme for the efficient service in finding just the right man for the job, small though it was.
Dan responded promptly and did a fantastic job. Would highly recommend.
Good pricing, good communication and showed up exactly when promised. After having several different expert/handyman fail to fix our problem, Dan was able to fix it quickly. We would use his service again if a home project needs a professional.
Dan responded promptly and did a good job fixing our plant and replacing the broken trellis. He left the garden clean and was very efficient. I would recommend him and I will be happy to call him again in future
Dan has done a great job in chasing down leaks in my parts of roof which we think we have now sorted and correcting a series of inherited leak/external problems.He has been dogged and helpful in getting things sorted and suggesting new solutions. He has then done a good job on the external decorating which is looking great.Very neat work and takes a real pride in the outcome. He communicates easily and promptly and seeks further updates if a decision is needed. Has tried to be flexible to meet when I am available for access etc. The invoices have been as agreed. thanks , Dan
Dan responded promptly to our enquiry. He installed a bike stand in our garden neatly and exactly as we had hoped, completing the job in good time. He was friendly and efficient throughout his communication and when doing the job. I would highly recommend his work.
Dan made contact shortly after my post. He came to view the leak, gave us a quote we were happy with and within a few days had completed the job. A very positive experience, would highly recommend.
I recommend Chris as a decorator without hesitation. His work is of a very high standard, he is entirely trustworthy and very easy to have working in the home. Chris is very experienced, polite, helpful, and not at all intrusive. He is our first port of call if we need a decorator. Joanna, Trumpington, cambridge
Chris O’Connor has worked for me in both my present flat and in my previous house. His painting has been uniformly excellent, both on walls and on bookshelves. He is efficient, reliable, and helpful, and always ready to use his own initiative. His charges are very reasonable, I might add he is very pleasant and extremely tidy. Margaret, Cambridge
Chris is a very thorough and careful decorator. I was very much reminded of the old adage ‘it’s all in the preparation’. He took great care to prepare surfaces properly before redecoration and the result is a really great looking job. He is also extremely good at cleaning up after himself! I would certainly recommend Chris very highly.
I used Chris O’Connor, he did a great job on the first half and I look forward to getting him in for the 2nd half when it’s ready. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others. Mike
Seems well organised and knowledgeable. Have accepted his quote.
Colin has been servicing my Aga for the past three years. He is reliable and very friendly, and he has been able to help me especially on the occasions I have had emergencies. Now he maintains it so I don’t have to worry. Colin replaced someone I used when I first came to Cambridge who was rude and unprofessional so he was a fantastic find. Dawn Giesler, Cambridge
Colin arrived on time and completed the work efficiently. He has a pleasant manner which inspires confidence. There were a couple of minor part replacements in addition to the basic service cost.
I have received and accepted a quote just waiting to agree a date that the work can be carried out.
Contact these guys to have a double glazing unit in my conservatory replaced and they also replaced the black bubble that was damaged in my conservatory doors. Very quick to get a quote from them and once the glass had arrived, I was called and offered a very convenient appointment. Very good value for money for the job that they did. It’s nice not to look at a stained window now and it has stayed really clean despite all the rain. I would definitely use these guys again for their other services.
Called on these guys to quote for replacing four double glazed units, turned up and measured on time and quoted a very reasonable price. Again turned up on time and fitted the units , friendly polite and professional service. Have already recommended to friends looking for similar service and I will be using them again
Friendly service, replacing 2x glass panes for a greenhouse, they cut and had them ready promptly for collection. I had measured one incorrectly and they re-cut it without any issue or charge. I would recommend them. Like
Mike Garrick Green
Dan has done several jobs for me including guttering, mending a kitchen cupboard and wooden window frame. He is friendly and helpful and finishes the job to a high standard.
Dan came to repair the sash window cord within the time scale required and did a really good job. He was very efficient and cleaned up perfectly. Good value for money too.
I am so grateful to Dawn at Scuseme and to James who did a really fantastic job in repairing and redecorating a room that had been badly damaged when a pipe in our attic flooded. It was quite an intricate job because it involved everything from plastering to re-carpeting and electrics but James coordinated it all brilliantly. It came at a very tricky time for my family and it was so reassuring to deal with James who was so trustworthy and professional and stayed on top of the job at all times. We have never had such good builders - every single person on the team did a great job and they were also all such nice people to have working in the house - and I would recommend Scuseme to anyone.
Joshua is an excellent teacher, with a lot of experience and the ability to explain grammar and vocabulary very clearly (much better than my previous teachers!). He has developed a wide range of teaching materials which are very helpful. I’m enjoying my lessons with him! Anna, Cambridge
Joshua has helped my son to develop a deeper understanding of spoken French, working with him to improve his vocabulary and general understanding. This has in-turn improved my sons confidence in this subject enormously. Joshua has been very flexible in the times that he teaches and has always been very professional and organised in his teaching, providing us with detailed feedback after each lesson. David, Cambridge
Throughout the whole project there has been meticulous attention to detail, great project management including managing the budget and lots of customer interaction. Charles and his team have kept us well briefed on progress and given regular updates, consulted on all decisions, well advised and we are thrilled with the outcome. Charles found solutions that I would never have thought off to make the most of every square inch of space. And, the fact Building on Reputation is a full design and build solution is good value for money. The cottage look fantastic. Jon, Haslingfield, Cambridge
I used Mark to put in a small sink in my utility room which was a tricky space. He did a great job so we used him again to sort out a number of bigger plumbing & heating issues which he found solutions for. Mark is very friendly, knowledgeable and excellent value for money. Dawn Giesler, Cambridge, CB1
Mark was very helpful from the first time I made contact. He came round promptly to quote, gave us a time window and was then able to do the work within that window. He got the work done quickly and to a good standard. I’d use him again.
Excellent. Carried out full refurbishment to my property including new kitchen and bathroom. I cannot fault the work. I have no hesitation in recommending Ark Home Projects Rhys, CB5
We love our new bathroom and Mark and Wieslaw were great to work with. High quality workmanship, efficient and friendly. Started and finished job on time despite a few minor setbacks and us being fussy! Highly recommend. Already recommended to 2 people in fact. Frankie, CB1
Very happy with Mark’s work and value for money. Unlike a lot of tradesmen we have encountered communication was excellent. Would happily call him again and recommend to friends. William, CB22
Perfect tradesman – quick and reasonable quote, arrived on time, did everything I needed plus some extras, cleaned up after job. Need more like him. For sure will use again. Greg, CB6
We commissioned Mark to transform a bathroom into a wet room. From the very start, and all the way through the project, he was very easy to communicate with, friendly and efficient. Mark went above and beyond to ensure the work was completed to the best standard under difficult circumstances, taking on a great deal of the research needed for specialist equipment himself. We would absolutely recommend him to others! Thank you very much indeed. Tom & Melissa
Tom & Melissa
We employed Mark to renovate our small interior bathroom, involving replacing the bath with a walk-in shower, replacing the sink, extraction fan and toilet, re-tiling everything, hanging a new door and painting. We’re really happy with how our bathroom turned out! Mark’s attention to detail is fantastic, and his communication was excellent. He responded quickly to all our questions and kept in touch throughout the job to make sure we were on the same page. Would absolutely recommend.
I’m very glad that Mark was able to take on this job for us. He was prompt in communication before the job whilst we were making arrangements. His team were very professional and did excellent quality work. They took care with our home and cleaned up well afterwards.
David Thomas, CB1
The extensive paint and remodeling work Roger Hawkins and his team did in our home in Cambridge was done with care and expertise. My wife and I made the right choice when we asked roger to work for us. He was punctual conscientious, friendly and worked hard and diligently. I can only recommend him enthusiastically to anyone, who needs a painting and remodelling job done. Dr Sven H Rossel Cambridge
Dr Sven H Rossel
I would highly recommend Roger for any decorating work. He is extremely reliable, very friendly and very hard working. He is very meticulous and takes pride in his work. He is also very fair and honest. N Boddington Linton
We had Hawkins Decorating Services paint and decorate our house from the attic to the ground floor and all external wood work in August/September 2015. The initial project was just to paint the house interior but it evolved while the team were on site. Roger was very responsive and managed to get all the work done in a very controlled manner and reasonable time frame. His carpenter also completed a lot of repairs for us. At the end of the project, Roger sat with us and explained all the cost and ensured there were no snags to be completed. Very professional I would highly recommend Hawkins decorating services ltd for any home decorating project. Thanks Roger! Aoife Greaney Great Wilbraham
Roger was quick and efficient with visiting and giving a quote for the job which was reasonable and fair. He could also offer a starting time the next month or so which suited us. Roger was very helpful in guiding us about the paint choices and recommended Little Green paint which we are very pleased we used. He even made an effort to bring us sample pots to try when we were undecided. He oversaw the job from start to completion although it was his brother and other members of the team who painted. He would respond the same evening by email if there were queries while the job was in hand. Throughout the time – just over a week, the guys were easy to have around and made every effort to clear up at the end of each day and leave the house tidy. They finished on time and we were very pleased with the result. I would definitely use Roger’s decorating services again
I have been using Matt for the last few years and he has always delivered good quality wood with sensible prices whether ordering small or larger quantities. He’s reliable, value for money and has a good range of products. Dawn Giesler, Cambridge, CB1
Good firewood delivered promptly. What’s not to like?
I did the initial order on the internet which was quick and easy but now I just text Matt when I need a delivery and he always replies promptly and delivers within a day or so of contacting him. The wood is great quality and burns well and the stacking is really helpful and worth the little bit extra. I would definitely recommend.
I used Barney to re-varnish my hall and living room floors. He did a fantastic Job, stripping the wood and sanding & sealing to a very high standard. I liked the techniques he used to repair and replace damaged floorboards, the overall finish effect was brilliant. Barney was very pleasant to have around, very knowledgeable about his craft and excellent value. Five years later the floor is still in top condition. Dawn Giesler, Cambridge, CB1
HIP Floor Solutions has recently completed the renovation of our village hall floor – we are very please with the result, Barney was always on time and kept to schedule with no dust or mess, very professional , no hesitation in recommending HIP. TGMT Trust.
Sitting room and hallway sanded and varnished, very pleased with the end product. My fear of dust and mess never happened! I would recommend Barney Michael Garratt, Thaxted, Essex.
Michael Garratt, Thaxted, Essex.
The thing that impressed me most was that, unlike so many other traders, he took care to protect my property from unnecessary damage. The other thing I appreciated was that my place was left very clean and tidy. He was also so kind as to do a couple of other small jobs while here, which we had not discussed beforehand. Besides, he did everything well and fast. I wish all traders were like him.
Graeme was very responsive and gave a reasonable price
Nin is a gentleman. A little unusual in recent timed. So pleasantly spoken and up to the mark. Best of all, he didn’t try to exploit me in these troubling time while the ones I called from the South Cambs magazine tried to do. He was quick and efficient and the job was very well done… he even returned 2 days later when I wanted some advice without charging me. Thank you so much, Dawn!
Ellie had a real task on her hands when she agreed to paint a wall – it was never going to be simple in a victorian house that had a wall removed, replaced and inset slightly from the existing wall boundaries, which created the edge that I didn’t want painted. We also had different colours for the wall, door and skirting further complicating the preparation and decoration. Completely unfazed Ellie prepared the area and kept our home incredibly clean in the process then decorated our home beautifully. Great decorating from Ellie with easy and lovely service from Scuseme.
Work done by Andy his assistant. Efficient and competent as one should expect but noteworthy was the willingness, helpfulness and pleasantness. Use this man. I certainly will again
Nin did a very good job of work in our garden. He worked on our fence, putting in place a barrier to keep out the neighbour’s bamboo which was growing through. He also sorted out a patch of membrane under a gravelled area. As well as that he responded promptly to our messages and turned up punctually.
Both Nin and Andy are perfect for small or medium-sized tasks, so fixing/mending, general maintenance and handyman jobs – i.e. a lot of the small things that larger outfits would not have time for. They are very friendly, thorough and reliable. Communication is not Nin’s forte, but Andy will always get back to you. Pinning them down on a date is usually fine, but they will not always commit to arriving by a particular time. This is just a kind warning. It is not meant to be a negative, as their knowledge and work is very good. I kept remembering extra tasks for them and they were happy to fit it all in. I will not hesitate to use them again.
