Many of us over 60 remember the days when Tradesmen were competent, did not overcharge and were honest. Well, those days are gone right? I thought so until discovering GRD, headed by Gareth, who kept every promise, gave written quotation, and despite me even being open with him about monstrous quotations and behaviours from the electrical equivalents of Doctor Shipman I consulted, he STILL (a) Undercut the lot (b) Completed the work to the highest standards (c) Provided a full Safety and Test and Repair Report (d) Charged not a penny more than he quoted AND did a number of additional tasks absolutely free of charge (e) Gave a receipt even though my old Mom did not ask for one. Gareth visited the site (free of charge) to first assess what he would charge and then he stuck to it. Every call was returned, every question answered, every task completed with total efficiency, every issue and problem dealt with and overcome.
Every aspect of the service we used to experience in the good old days was present. and I award 10 out 10 in every respect. He also even takes care of gas, plumbing and other household tasks! Of course there must be a lot of good and honest Sparkies out there but the problem for the ordinary person is identifying them, and I couldn't find one until I discovered GRD!. For both work standards and honesty and I will be singing the praises of this Firm for many years to come.
Additionally, as if I have not said enough, my old mum called him out three further times to look at some other electrical issues and (a) he visited within an hour (b) fixed every issue and (c) charged nothing.
This tradesman did not just go the extra mile, he went many more miles than the journey required.
