Blocked sink
Customer Service
The engineer arrived at the approximate time scheduled. He was smart and tidy in appearance, courteous and efficient especially when his first attempt did not succeed. I will certainly recommend the company to friends and neighbours. The receptionist too must get a mention! She was most helpful. Friendly and polite.

Emergency plumbing
Customer Service
Blackhall did an excellent job responding to my request for an emergency plumber. Within a couple of hours, their plumber Simon arrived at my flat and quickly identified the problem (escape of water from a pipe in the upstairs flat), stopped the leak, and made everything secure. Simon was very efficient and professional, and a great communicator: he carefully explained to both the owner of the upstairs flat and me what had caused the leak. I highly recommend Blackhall plumbing -- they provide a reliable and highly professional service.

Quality, Service and Professionalism
Customer Service
I needed some bits of plumbing repairs done in my house and having used P Blackhall before I asked them to carry out the work. Ryan and Derek were a credit to their firm. Dressed professionally in branded workwear they looked the part. The carried out the work diligently and courteously to the highest standard. The created minimal mess and cleaned up behind them and wore masks throughout the job. From quotation to completion, I was completely satisfied with the work and would recommend them to anyone who needs this type of work. Also, a local firm employing local people.

Professional, friendly and good service
Customer Service
I came across Blackhall Ltd through and emergency call out to a broken shower tap and hot water pouring out. My son found them online and someone was with me in an hour. Gavin was professional and knowledgeable and then returned a number of times to try and solve the problem and then fit a new shower. Blackhall provided a quote for the work and arranged a tiler to complete the job. I needed it to be done quickly as I was selling the house and it was!

Excellent and professional service carried out in a timely manner
Customer Service
I was looking to have an electric awning (that I had already purchased) installed and found P.Blackhall’s Website after contacting several electricians who never returned my calls or email messages. I sent a message through P.Blackhall’s website and they called me back shortly after and then arranged for their lovely and courteous engineer (Jan) to come and look at my awning as he was in the area. He took my awning out all the packaging to check the spec etc and then within 45 mins I had a quote from the office. So quick! The quote was a lot higher than expected but I wanting a company I could trust and for it to be done quickly and they did not disappoint! They said they would arrive the following day between 10am and 12pm and turned up just after 10am. Jan and Connor were so efficient and friendly and put the awning up in just a couple of hours and even better they took away all the cardboard and packaging and left no mess whatsoever. It was such a pleasure to meet Jan and Connor, they were so professional and I am so delighted with the work they carried out. Couldn’t recommend them both highly enough and will definitely request them again if I have any other electrical work that needs carried out. Many thanks for the great service and fitting it within 24 hours of me calling with my enquiry too. 5 stars!!

Efficient and affordable
Customer Service
We used Blackhall to remedy a number of minor repairs in our rental flat that had been building up. They communicated well with us and our tenants, came when they said they would and got the work done quickly and cost effectively. We’ll be using them again.

Hidden charges
Customer Service
I had a leaking compression valve on the radiator, the guy who came to do the work did a fine job, no issue there. But I was really annoyed to discover additional charges on my invoice that were never mentioned during my call. Their phone line states that staff will be using PPE equipment, but not that you will be charged for it. I asked them to remove the charge as when the costs were discussed there was no mention of this (only hourly rate, materials and possible parking fees were discussed) and they refused, they also doubled down and claimed that the charge was mentioned on their website and phone line so I should have known. 1. It's true that the charge is mentioned on their website, but I called their phone line, and discussed what the cost would be on their phone line! I should not have to also check their website to see if there are additional charges that weren't mentioned. 2. The claim that it was mentioned on the phone line is just demonstrably false. On principle I am really irritated to be charged more than I agreed to. Luckily in this instance the charge is not high, but there is nothing to stop them charging what they like and then refusing to remove it based on the same reasoning. If you are agree to a specific price for the work, then that should be what is honoured. If they forgot to mention the additional charge, or whatever the case may be here, that's their mistake and they should still honour the original agreement. Very unimpressed.

Very satisfactory service
Customer Service
As a result of the routine service of my boiler, 2 faults were discovered which involved the replacement of parts. Both were dealt with promptly and competently and the overall standard of work was extremely satisfactory. I will certainly recommend the company to friends.
