I needed to have two fence posts repaired by fitting concrete spurs to their bases. I looked at Which Local and selected Mr Norris as he was the nearest to my address. He called that day and quoted £70 each for the post repairs, plus VAT. I had looked at fence repairs about a year and a half ago and had been quoted £60 per spur then so thought that £70 plus VAT was a reasonable price. I did not ask for a written quote or look for other quotes, simply relied on the Which connection. I agreed the price and Mr Norris eventually came to do the work on the 20 October 2015. He and an assistant arrived at 08.30am and the work was completed by 09.30am. I checked the work and all looked satisfactory. On being asked for the bill Mr Norris said that it would be £190 plus VAT. I reminded him that he had quoted £140 plus VAT and he said "that was for one post". and he had reduced the charge for the two to the £190 plus VAT he was asking for. I was concerned about this and told him that I would pay by via the Internet on receipt of his invoice. I then looked back on my notes and reassured by the fact that I had noted the quote as £140 plus VAT, I phoned him and confirmed by email, that his quote had been £140 plus VAT and as that was the price agreed that was to be the price that I would pay. I asked him to check his own records on quoting for the work. Mr Norris responded by apologising for his mistake and sent me an invoice for £140 plus VAT. What I have learned from this experience is that I will always obtain three written quotes for any future work of this nature. I have no complaint regarding the work done by Mr Norris and this comment is simply my own experience of dealing with him.

I was extremely happy with the service of this company and would definitely use them again. They arrived at the specified time and did a thorough job with both gutters and patio.

I used trader again in August last year to replace two glass units that the seals had gone on - condensation appearing between the panes. Despite this not being on their product they attended promptly, their quote was good, and they measure and fitted the replacement glass units very well. No problem since fitting.

Very prompt, efficient removal of 6 large conifers and removal of stumps and shaped one of our fruit trees. Stephen was easy and straight forward to deal with. Good job done.

After the recent storms and high winds, I contacted a number of fencing repair firms. Granted they were probably all very busy but Phil Norris responded very quickly, came to inspect the damage the same day and quoted me a fair price. Perhaps fortunately(?) for me our fence did not consist of panels (which were in short supply) so he was able to start work a couple of days later. The work was thorough and the materials used were very good. The results are excellent and much better than what was replaced. The old materials were taken away and the garden was left clean and tidy. On the basis of this work, I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Removed a diseased laburnum and reduced a large, overgrown privet hedge. A fair price, quick and efficient, cleaned up well and put all debris through a chipper on the spot.

I have been using trader for a number of years now and cannot recommend them highly enough. David and Chris are ultimate professionals and are experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of lawn care and treatment. Their attention to detail, customer care and service standards is exemplary. They are reliable, friendly and totally trustworthy.

Stephen arrived as arranged and gave us a reasonable, middling competitive quote for removing & stump grinding 3 large conifers. He and his team did a very efficient and tidy job as promised. A nice guy to deal with. We have asked him to quote for another job. Enough said!

I had a garden fence whose posts had rotted over many years. Don of Eatons Maintenance replaced these for me at a very reasonable price. He was on time and worked hard (through the rain) to complete the job. The fence is now stable and still visually good. Would use again if the need arises.

I found Stephen through the Which Local site. He came round promptly, told me when he would get a quotation out and produced it on time. He was very competitive with other tree surgeons and his price seemed good for the job. Two guys arrived and removed a row of about 10 conifers and pruned two large sycamore trees. Nice tidy job.

Andy put up a new fence for us in December 2012, then returned in July to fully re-landscape the garden: pond installed, retaining wall and brilliant patio plus turfing front and rear. Highly recommended!
