Avoid. Do not use this company. Booked in for a regular boiler service. Faffed around for an hour and a half. Did not complete a full service according to the boiler service check list. Did not remove the burner module, or silt trap. Said that the boiler needed a grommet (only for the housing, not to do with the boiler itself), which it did not, as the manual states. Tried to charge me a minimum of £36 for a 50 pence grommet and the pleasure of fitting this not needed part. Plus the extra day I would need to take off for him to return. Also, nice little touch, he left the switch off so the boiler would not function. So I would have to call them out the next day to get them to fix that and make up another imaginary part that I "MUST" get. No gas certificate was provided because they wanted to fit the grommet to the boiler cover before they would issue the certificate. Good job I have more informed people around me to check these things other wise I would have paid out of a lot of money. No doubt this is a regular practice. Avoid.

The trader replied (on 02/03/2017)
We're sorry to hear you feel this way however we do feel your review is not an accurate description of the service received. It is our job to make sure your boiler service is thorough and sometimes this takes a little longer than an hour at no extra charge to the customer. We did not remove the burner module as it does not need inspecting every year. We visually inspected the condensate trap and it did not removing as it was clear. The grommet needed to be fitted as it’s an important part of the integrity of the boiler - your boiler manufacturer can confirm this. The cost of the grommet is £6.83. The charge to fit this vital part is £30 which includes collecting from the supplier and returning to your house to fit the grommet. We feel a total cost of £36 + vat is reasonable. If our engineer had accidently turned the boiler off we would have returned free of charge to turn it on. We cannot provide a gas certificate for a boiler that needs a part as required by the manufacturer until it is fitted. We are confident we carried out a thorough test and service of your boiler and can assure you we would not recommend or charge for parts not required.

After two failed attempts to find the fault in our heating system by two plumbing businesses, we phoned Levington! How I wished we had known about them before! Professional, patient and determined are three words that come to mind. We now have a heating system that is working perfectly!!

We have used Lewington since 1986 when we moved house and the toilet smashed when we tried to replace toilet seat. Kim was pleasant and came out on an emergency and we've used his firm ever since!
