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.

Reliable, efficient service and tidy
Customer Service
Booked Darren to replace my old radiator and to install my new gas hob. He arrived on the dot when he said he would and was extremely efficient, friendly and responded to all my question asked. Darren was very tidy and did not leave a mess when he finished. Darren was also honest in advising me that he was not experienced in a particular task relating to my kitchen, he was happy to attempt to do the task, if I wanted but it would probably take him a longer, recommending that I get someone more experienced and who would not take so long, thus saving me money. I would definitely recommend Darren to anyone living in the South London area. In fact I will be getting him to come back to sort out my electrical issues.

Great work, thorough, fast
Customer Service
I had Darren carry out an EICR report in my apartment. He was able to fit me in in short notice and carried out the survey and subsequent remedial work promptly and to a high standard. I would recommend Darren

Excellent and friendly service
Customer Service
I was replacing my gas cooker with an electric cooker, and wanted a new Consumer Unit to support this. Darren did all the work on this, including disconnecting the old cooker and capping off the unused gas pipe - a bonus not having to get another contractor in to do this. Darren was friendly, efficient, and Covid aware. I would definitely recommend him.

Completely unreliable
Cancelled appointment at the last minute. Offered no solution. I incurred huge additional costs as a result and a great deal of stress in order to get the work completed by another company.
Customer in Greater London Posted on 30/10/2020 (Reviewer did not use service)
The trader replied (on 17/11/2020)
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your experience was a negative one as I am very passionate about my business. The customer called me to request an Electrical Installation Condition report be carried out. We arranged the time and date for me to visit, however, I was still working on a previous job that had been delayed due to lack of materials. I contacted the customer two days before the arranged time and date to ask if I could rearrange her appointment. The customers said this wasn’t acceptable as she needed the certificate urgently to rent her property out. I am always very reliable and operate a diary to be organised but sometimes through no fault of mine my jobs can run longer than expected but I would always aim to give the customer plenty of notice to either rearrange or contact someone else if need be.
A Great Find
Customer Service
Last year, when I was looking for a reliable person to service my boiler, I chose Darren because of the positive reviews he had received on this site. Having used him twice more since then to repair faults with the boiler, I am very happy to endorse his work. On each occasion Darren has been punctual, is cheerful and courteous and works quickly, efficiently and tidily. His prices are very fair. I will continue to use his services for all future plumbing and electrical work at my home and would not hesitate to recommend him as a trusted trader.

Customer Service
Darren installed a new extractor fan in the bathroom. The existing one was broken and needed replacing. We discussed different extraction techniques and he offered to improve the extraction if the fan I'd chosen wasn't working well. He clearly outlined how to check if the fan is working as expected. He was also kind enough to provide me a quote to get some more plug sockets installed which was a bonus. Thank you!

Money Well Spent!
Customer Service
I had my boiler serviced by EPG Specialists and I couldn't be happier with the results. They arrived promptly, made sure all the safety checks were completed as well as carrying a thorough service on my boiler. I was impressed with the time spent on the service and couldn't recommend them highly enough.
