This is not a job to build decking.

This job is for someone to make planters in my back garden using the decking boards I already have bought. I need 5 to be made and then put in place with a 900mm trellis behind each one which needs fixing to the wall.

Feedback for Conkers

After several false starts, a nice couple of lads turned up to do the work. All through the morning they were called by Andrew almost every hour to check their progress on this job which they weren't happy about. Although they didn't quite make the planters to the spec I agreed with Andrew, i initially thought what they had done would be just "ok" so i paid. But a week later, the missing corner battens meant that the planters just fell apart at the slightest push. Before leaving this feedback, i contacted Andrew to try and resolve this issue as the missing corner battens were all that was required (1hr work?). But his immediate response was aggressive, blaming me for the poor finished product and claiming that his guys did nothing wrong - at this point I hadn't yet managed to tell him what the issue was because he didn't want to know. Clearly from the look of the many positive reviews he has, this occasion may have been a one off but even so, if he'd have engaged with me when i contacted him rather than immediately get defensive and aggressive, i am sure we could have reached an amicable solution. He made a mountain out of a molehill in this case. I wont be using his services again.
