What our customers and traders say about us

Sash window chord repair : Amazing service and 100% professional job

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 .

Sharon H, Cambridge

Prompt & personable

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.

Michael Allen,

Very good

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.

Sara P,

Fantastic service!

 A very friendly and easy to talk to technician arrived at our house very promptly. Identified the problem almost immediately and talked me through the whole process. He fixed the problem with our washing machine very quickly and without having to order in any new parts. All for a very reasonable price! Certainly will be in contact if I ever need anything repaired in the future.

Dom ,

Fixed!

Promp, professional, reliable and friendly service. Would not hesitate to use again and recommend.

Mrs Wright,

Recently had problems with bathroom loo and was given details of plumber by Scuseme very promptly.

Contacted the one of the recommended plumbing companies in Cambridge and they came out timely and did the necessary repairs very swiftly. Very happy with their time keeping and tidiness.

Nigel, Blinco Grove, Cambridge

Excellent, traditional style window cleaner

Arrived punctually at the agreed time; was a bit pessimistic about being able to reach velux roof windows but then managed fine and did a good job. Reasonable price. I will use again.

J Rattenbury ,

Quick and efficient

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.

Rebecca Sewell,

Great service and excellent wood

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.

Joanne P,

I was absolutely delighted with the service I received both from you and the local company you recommended. The engineer was a delight and fixed my machine extremely quickly and efficiently the very next day. Most impressive. I have already recommended you to my friends and will definitely be in touch when I need another service.

J Ellwood, CB4

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!

Edwards, Cambridge

Basil 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

Anne , CB1

Thank you, scuseme. It feels like having a PA!

Simone, Queen Edith, Cambridge

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.

Dowie , Cambridge

I recently used James to repair a chimneybreast/fireplace and lower section of plastered wall that had previously been damp and to reinstall and regrout some kitchen tiles. He came very promptly to do the quote and the quote was fair for the amount of work and materials involved. I found him to be very pleasant, honest and hardworking. He was a fast worker and his work was to a very high standard and he spent a great deal of effort explaining various options regarding the proposed work and a lot of time cleaning up at the end of the work. I have no qualms about recommending him to other homeowners and would use him again for future work.

K Peacock, Cambridge

Loads of thanks for finding a good tutor and SO quickly.

Jackie, Newnham, Cambridge

It was reassuring to know that the contact information that I was given was for people who had been vetted, checked and more importantly recommended. The website was very easy to use and the response was speedy. Thank you scuseme you have saved me lots of time! I shall definitely be in touch again soon.

Ruth, Petersfield, Cambridge

Just a quick note to say how quick and easy it was to use scuseme. I received a recommended tutor for my son very quickly after registering my request, saving me many phone calls and a lot of time. Thank you.

Becky, Chesterton, Cambridge

Scuseme was recommended to me by a friend that got a wonderful decorator from the site. I found a fantastic handyman who was very nice, very prompt, reasonable and easy to deal with. I think that scuseme is a brilliant idea.

Ms Deyong, Cambridge

Thank you so much for sorting this out so quickly. Jason arrived very quickly, was very reassuring and checked everything. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending him.

Sarah Green, Director, Move to Cambridge Ltd.,

Every time I used I found somebody not only very competent but who charged a reasonable fee and was also quick. I’ve already recommended to a number of people. Very happy you can count on a service like this.

Mar Mont ,

More than once, Scuseme has quickly provided me with the contact details of reliable guys for small, but important tasks. They responded immediately, proposed what had to be done, then carried out the work as planned at very reasonable, pre-agreed rates.

PB, Cambridge

I have used Scuseme for the last 2 years and it’s fantastic way of finding reliable, honest people from tutors to electricians. Highly recommended.

Rebecca Sewell,

Scuseme helped me find a builder for our commercial refit job. The job has since been completed to high standard and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Scuseme again. Cheers, Dawn.

Sam Owens, Thirsty, Cambridge

I have used Scuseme a number of times and have always found it to be quick, reliable, safe and offering a fantastic range of top quality services. Highly reccomended.

Jo G, Cambridge

I recently needed to quickly source local services for a sick relative. I had very little time to set things up and I need them to be reliable. Scuseme took all the legwork out of the process and a couple of clicks later everything was done. Garden, handy man, care visits, PA and more. Can’t thank you enough! Everyone has been excellent – a pleasure to deal with and truly professional.

Alison , Fulbourn

We are new customers for Damian and so far we are very happy with his work. He did an excellent job of cleaning the windows and the gutters. The work is to a high standard, he is pleasant and polite, and his prices are reasonable.

Trudi, Cambridge

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 !

Suzanne Prynne, Cambridge

Scuseme has offered me really prompt and useful contacts on several occasions. I highly recommend them.

Ruth , Chesteron

James responded quickly and was prompt, helpful and reliable. He was a pleasure to do business with.  Thanks, James and Dawn.

Ali, Romsey

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.

Maddy H , Cambridge

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 safety 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!

Polly Plouvier, CB1

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.

Peter B, Trumpington

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.

Amanda W, Cambridge

Damian arrived promptly and he and his colleague did a great job for a reasonable price. Windows inside and out now gleaming. Polite and efficient and regular visits scheduled. Just what I wanted

Jackson, Histon

Good firewood delivered promptly. What’s not to like?

S Parry , 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.

J Finch , Cambridge

I was absolutely delighted with the service i received both from scuseme and Imrie. The engineer was a delight and fixed my machine extremely quickly and efficiently the very next day.
