Exemplary Service!

An excellent company!! I cannot recommend highly enough. Bumfords have provided exemplary service for my 95 year old mother’s central heating system over many years. Everyone we have ever dealt with has been friendly, polite and professional. Recently though they have impressed as a business that really cares about its customers. The ancient back boiler of Mum’s system started cutting out making it impossible to use the central heating system. We received a very prompt Covid compliant visit from Alex who advised us on the installation of a new boiler and provided a very reasonable quote. However, we did not think my mother would cope with the upheaval it would require. Bumfords understood our position and instead of shrugging their shoulders, like many companies would have done, they showed great empathy. They sent another engineer for one last go at trying to solve the problem. Bob was amazing, methodical, analytical, and patient and after testing everything and eventually spending over half an hour lying on the floor staring at the boiler flame he cracked it. A couple of days later he returned and fitted a new part and all is well! This company is definitely one in which you can have great confidence and one you can trust completely.

Our relative in her 80's coping with dementia required a replacement boiler. She lives 170 miles away and we had to organise it over the phone. Everyone we spoke to at Bumfords proved to be knowledgeable, considerate and polite. The sale representative deserves special thanks for his understanding of the situation and for ensuring a smooth installation that ran to schedule. We felt in good hands and offer them our sincerest gratitude. I would highly recommend Bumfords.

Since moving to Yorkshire I've found it difficult to find a proper handyman. Bumfords have proved to be the real thing. In one visit Craig mended a leaking tap, put a new rubber seal on a leaking gutter joint, installed a new locking handle on the bathroom door, and then when the toilet started to overflow unexpectedly while he was here, he also sorted out the ball-valve. He also took the trouble to point out problems he'd noticed with the roof while he was up the ladder, and to recommend a roofer. I was only charged £80 for the whole lot! I am delighted with the service.

I contacted Bumfords to sort a problem with my underfloor heating. I was given an appointment day within a week and I got a reminder a day before the appointment. The Plumber, Phil, was prompt, polite, very professional and knowledgeable. He was able to sort out a persistent problem with the system that I had previously been told could not be corrected without an expensive upgrade. He cleaned up after himself and gave recommendations about how I can optimize the currently installed system. Overall extremely satisfied with the service and will use them again

Bumfords replaced our boiler in December 2020, just after the second lockdown. The staff who visited observed every safety precaution. It was an unplanned, emergency situation, in the middle of very cold weather and yet they responded to my initial request for a quote immediately. It is a system with a large hot water tank, so more complex than the average combi boiler, but during the whole process we had complete faith that they knew exactly what they were doing. The job was completed on time and to budget. The engineer was a pleasure to have in the house - tidy, helpful, friendly but hard working. The outcome was possibly one of the best jobs we have ever had done, and we have been restoring houses for over 40 years, so we have plenty of experience! The engineer spent a very long time balancing the system and the result is the house has never been warmer or easier to control using the Hive control system. It is excellent, even in a big old house. We will be using Bumfords for all our plumbing jobs in the future. They also fitted some kitchen taps for us at the same time as the boiler. Last week we had a leak from one of the pipes under the sink and they were there that afternoon to fix it. Absolutely excellent service.

From our first call to the office at Bumford's to the end of our new boiler installation the service we received was excellent. Alex came out the same day to look at the old boiler and we agreed that a new boiler was the way to go. Within the day Alex had sent me an email with the quote for the work required doing and quickly came back with another quote as we decided to have anew radiator fitted also. Phil the engineer came promptly on the agreed date and followed all covid proceedures and protocols. Phil was very professional covering as much as possible with dust sheets and he kept me informed at all stages of the installation .The boiler was fully tested and Phil gave us a very thorough hand over of the boiler showing us all functions. Nothing is too much trouble for this company, it's a company you can trust and rely on .

A very professional company. The new boiler was an upgrade from the existing and had to be located in a different area. From the initial survey by Robin who went into detail of the installation, type and size of boiler required and gave an explanation of where all new piping would be located. Robin & Phil (Installation engineer) also came to our home prior to the installation to go through all details and answer any questions. Phil Romans the engineer who carried out the work was exceptional.

Bumfords came the same day that I rang them to look at my leak and resolved the situation immediately. Although they were really busy a new boiler was fitted 4 days later. No mess whatsoever. Covers on floors. Covers on their shoes. Matt just got on with his job and it was a pleasure for him to be in our home. All finished in 1 day. These are very organised people. They will be doing my next project.

From start to finish the whole team have been so professional, accommodating and supportive. The initial survey with Robin put my mind at ease at what we wanted to achieve, no pressure sales, just good honest advice, constant communication helped me design the solution I wanted. The team supplied and fitted a brand new Worcester Bosch High flow boiler plus Nest Thermostat, including removing the hot water tank and header tanks of the old system to make way for the new bathroom. They installed new designer radiators throughout the house. The removal and replacement was completed in a day to a very high standard and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The fitting of the radiators required more work than expected to include supports in the walls due to the weight of them but this didn’t phase any of the team, they simply got on and sorted the job, they were very patient and professional and the standard of work can be seen through the whole project. Thanks, everyone for your support, I can’t recommend you guys enough
