Clive came out to us at 7pm at night as our boiler packed up, unfortunately the boiler was not fixable but he made it his mission to make sure me and my family had hot water by fixing the immersion heater.

A lovely bloke and I would recommend him to anyone πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸΌ

I can honestly say that Clive Allen is a great fella and also a highly experienced and traditional tradesman. Recently we had an horiffic experience with one of the so called market leading Gas and Electric suppliers???. Clive actually came around and sorted the problem out on the morning he was going for a family holiday!

Absolutely Brilliant service, thanks Clive would highly recommend you and will definitely be using you’re services again.
