The small job we needed doing wasn't of interest to most tradesmen due to the short time it would take them; most wanted a whole day rate for the work to make it worth their time, when the job would only take a few hours. Not only did Phil come straight out to take a look, but he was very empathetic to the reason for the job and sympathetic to our budget. Phil contacted us the night before to confirm exactly what he would do, reconfirmed the cost and agreed a start time. Phil arrived early, was consultative & courteous throughout, left the area clean and tidy (we have no parking at the front of our house and he didn't cause one single obstruction throughout) then went above and beyond by throwing in some extras at the end to make it look fantastic - all for a reasonable cost to us compared with several other tradesmen. Our neighbors have subsequently hired Phil for a job and we will also be booking several jobs going forward, the first to be a decked patio this spring (we'll use our winnings to pay for it lol!). Very good tradesman - you get exactly what you asked for and he's a thoroughly decent guy too. He absolutely deserves to win this competition as there aren't many like Phil left!
