Job well done
Booked in to have new combi boiler and pipework done. What a great team, tidy, considerate of my home and very professional. Explained everything to me and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend them to any one.

Very happy
Customer Service
We went with Bumfords to install an LPG boiler as part of the installation of a central heating system. We were very happy with the service. All the workman were very pleasant, patient and they seem to have done a good job. Everything seems to be working well 2 weeks in. The price too was slightly cheaper than the other quote we had (from a sole trader). They also did everything they said they would, when they said they would, and kept us informed throughout the process.

Boiler Replacement and system impovements
Customer Service
We have been a customer of Bumfords for over 15 years now and have always been pleased with the service given. The work done this time was to the same high standard. Alex visited in the first instance to help us plan the improvements and advise us. The boiler replacement along with a larger radiator fitting was done with your usual efficiency inside two days. Phil and Joe who did the work were superb. Always considerate, careful and fun to have around. Thank you guys.

Cannot recommend highly enough!
Customer Service
The guys were super professional. They were here for four days - very old boiler and up a flight of stairs to boot! They were polite, clean and treated my home as if it were theirs. Alex stopped by to oversee progress every day. Love the new boiler and would recommend this company and the team in a heartbeat. Many thanks!

Air Conditioning
Customer Service
First of all I should point out I am a hard to please customer. Robin spec'd up and produced the quote for me, I posted out exact what I expected from the install and was agreed. Phil came to see me prior to the install to ensure everything was prepped and ready for the installation. Each and every aspect of my requests were considered and delivered. Phil and the crew were punctual, polite and showed my home with the respect they would their own home. It had just been decorated and was left in a perfect condition after the work. I have no hesitation in recommending Bumfords to anyone requiring air conditioning and I will be using them as and when I need a new boiler. If I could give an 11 I would. unfortunately I can't so it's a 10/10 from me. Thank you to Bumfords, and the crew... Use this company with confidence... THANK YOU

New boiler installation
Customer Service
Just had a new boiler (Worcester) supplied and installed by Bumfords. The price quoted was , I thought, good Matt's team turned up on time (8am) on the scheduled date (29/06), later on in the morning another team turned up to help Matt. They all did an excellent job. The electrician came the next morning to do a wiring mod required for the boiler to run properly. He too did an excellent job. I am very pleased with the work done, the new boiler appears to run a lot quieter than the one it replaced (which was 28 years old). Bumfords is an excellent local (to Barnsley) company. I definitely recommend them to anyone considering using them.

Excellent plumbing company
Customer Service
Excellent service provided by Bumfords. A quick and competitive quotation by Alex in the office and a difficult hot water tank removal and replacement was achieved by Matt and Jack with first rate workmanship. Utmost care and attention to not damaging home decor was hugely appreciated by my wife. I would recommend this company without reservation.

Excellent work
Customer Service
We were very happy with the work Bumfords had done at our previous house in South Yorkshire and wanted them to do the replacement boiler & heating system in our "new" (18th century) house near Matlock. It was a fairly big job (over a week) and not straightforward but Robin took the time to assess the requirement and came up with a very good proposal. The engineers, Phil and Joe, then did a fantastic job to get everything in and up and running with the minimum of disruption. All in all, Bumfords were excellent and we highly recommend them.

High Standard as Always
Customer Service
Have used Bumfords for many years and wouldn't go anywhere else. Although busy through high demand, Robin took the time to assess the work needed and discuss how best to meet our needs. New boiler was installed as scheduled by polite, professional and friendly heating engineers, Matt and Jack, whose work was outstanding. Would highly recommend.
