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.

Excellent call out service
Customer Service
My bathroom hot tap had stopped turning. I was worried that it would leak over Christmas. A plumber turned up with an hour of me phoning. Was told that the tap was safe, had a temporary fix done and was advised on what was what was need. I have always had a fabulous service from P Blackhall and would highly recommend them.

Great Job
Customer Service
I was very pleased with the work that Steven and Mack did fitting new electrical heaters, sockets and lights in my mother in laws apartment. The guys were friendly and efficient and tidied up well behind them. The work was scheduled at short notice to hit her moving in deadline and completed on time

Expert, friendly and professional
Customer Service
I had P Blackhall ( Plumbing Heating & Electrical ) Ltd. carry out my annual Gas Central Heating service and safety check every year. This year it was carried out yesterday ( Wed 16th September 2020 ) by their engineer Simon, who was a model of efficiency and expertise as well being extremely helpful with advice of all kinds and with full answers to a list of queries I had prepared for him concerning the future plumbing 1st fit of my kitchen, which will be getting renovated at some point in the future. He couldn't have been more informative or constructive, while I can never recommend P Blackhall highly enough in general.
