Resolving electrical & lightning problems
Customer Service
Darren did a great job of fixing my outdoor lights. He also got my chandelier and a lamp I had bought in Italy working again. Other electricians had tried and not managed to get any of these working, so I was very happy. He is professional and does what we agreed on time & budget. I highly recommend him.

Excellent service-boiler repair
Customer Service
I couldn't recommend Darren highly enough. Firstly, he got back to me very quickly and on a Sunday. He was able to fit us in the following day and put up with some challenging logistics on our part. He was professional and got the job done, which turned out to be relatively small but definitely not something we could have managed on our own. Extremely reasonably priced and we felt like we were in safe hands. Really nice manner. We will be using his services again and recommending him to others. Thank you again.

Heating problems
Customer Service
Darren was highly recommended and did not disappoint. He was straightforward and diagnosed the problem without any flannel or upselling. He fixed the initial problem much faster than others had led me to believe and as such I got him back in the next day to service my boiler and change a couple of valves. All done without fuss and the flat is now warm!

Gas safety certificate/electrical work/boiler services
Customer Service
I have used Darren for a number of years for gas safety certificates, electrical work and boiler services and repairs. He has always been reliable, helpful, knowledgeable and completed all work to a high standard. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Excellent service
Customer Service
My 93 year old mother's boiler broke down. She was given some exorbitant quotes from an emergency plumber who recommended a power flush etc. before fixing it. Having called a number of businesses I spoke to Darren at EPG Specialists who squeezed in a visit a few days later. He fixed the boiler, no power flush was necessary at this point, and returned the next day when a further problem arose. There were no surprise charges and he was helpful with options for the future. He is clearly experienced and honest, and not greedy. The boiler is now working well. We are thrilled to have found him, would call him again, and would recommend him to our friends.

Quality work and great communication
Customer Service
We've worked with Darren at EPG Specialists Ltd on a number of occasions, from small jobs around the house, like the installation of a dishwasher and minor repairs, to larger installations, like a fuse box replacement. From plumbing to electrical the work has been great quality, thoughtfully communicated and organised quickly and reliably. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Darren and EPG.

Efficient professional service
Customer Service
Darren came at 2 days notice to re-route kitchen wiring and make a gas stove area safe. He's really professional and helpful to deal with, and got the job done well. His admin is very efficient too, and I would certainly use him again.

Boiler Service and Light Installation
Customer Service
Darren recently installed a porch light for us and carried out an annual service on our boiler (which he had actually installed a few years ago). Not much more to say other than Darren is our go-to person for this sort of thing as he's never given us a reason to look for someone else.

Boiler Repair
Customer Service
Darren did a great job in coming out to repair my boiler. He was punctual and polite and did a cost effective repair and service. He provided an honest appraisal of the problem when other firms would have just wanted to have quoted for a new boiler. I'll definitely use him in the future.

Gas boiler service& installation
Customer Service
Darren has worked on my hot water system for 9 years. During this time he has not only serviced my system, he has installed a new boiler, replaced a couple of my radiators and put thermostats on all my radiators. I have found Darren to be reliable,punctual, tidy and very competitive. I have no hesitation in recommending EPG Services and Darren.
