Great Job
Customer Service
I have used Blackhall Plumbing several times for my mothers property, the latest being a replacement toilet. This was carried out within the time and budget stated. The plumber went above and beyond to create a shelf as the toilet was smaller than the original. He was very friendly, polite and left the bathroom clean and tidy. All previous dealings with this company, which involved a faulty boiler, have been very positive. They responded very quickly when I explained my mother was elderly.

Bathroom renovation
Customer Service
From my initial contact with the company through to completion of the work, I found all members of staff with whom I had contact (reception, heads of departments, engineers) to be extremely professional and approachable. The work was carried out to a high standard, and I was delighted with the result.

Emergency plumber
Customer Service
Requested emergency call-out for a leaking kitchen sink. Attended within four hours and repair completed within 15 minutes. Plumber, well presented, very pleasant and observed all COVID precautions We have dealt with this company on many occasions and have always been very pleased with their work. We originally used them to change a low battery (detector therefore emitting a high-pitched ton) in a smoke detector on a high ceiling at the top of a stair and they were the only company who would come out. Brilliant and friendly

Used Blackhall for 20+years when installed new plumbing and central heating in a large house. They still offer highly competent and friendly advice. They work and respond quickly- central heating systems often give trouble at highly awkward times - and at a reasonable cost such that clients can have confidence in the work Fortunately, we do not need many visits but on the last 2 relatively recent occasions they did exactly what was needed and the 2 engineers involved (Gavin and Simon) sorted us out with typical efficiency and a bit of "chat". Totally reliable!

Excellent Work, Excellent Staff
Customer Service
I have used Blackhall Plumbing and Electrical before and will do so again in the future. The work carried out was of the highest standard as was the appearance, decorum, and professionalism of the engineers involved (Mikey and Jay, Pete the manager). I would recommend this company for any work required and I will certainly use them again.

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!!
