Reliable, High Quality, Professional, Reasonably Priced, Efficient and Extremely Courteous
Customer Service
Every aspect of the service provided and work undertaken by each staff member of J Child was undertaken to a really high standard. The plumber arrived exactly on time, wore PPE, completed the work quickly, professionally, efficiently and was extremely courteous. He explained things clearly without being patronising. He got on with the job quickly, without any fuss. At the end he checked that I was happy with the work. The admin was clear, useful, informative and prompt. Cost was very reasonable. Booking the job was a very positive experience even though I made a mistake on my side. Everyone involved responded promptly and communicated well. What they said would happen, happened on time and in the way it was supposed to and without fuss. Really professional company, great team.

Highly recommended company 👍🏽
Customer Service
Have used John and his colleagues on a number of occasions. The most reason was yesterday after emailing the day before regarding a fault with my boiler. Have used them for boiler service, installing new thermostat and more. Very friendly staff. Cannot recommend them enough.

Problems with central heating and hot water system
Customer Service
Upon reporting to the company that we were having problems with our central heating and hot water system, John attended and identified the problem. A costing of the parts required to repair the system was forwarded the day after and a date and time arranged for an engineer to attend to effect the required repair. In the meantime, a further problem arose at the weekend but a phone call to John helped me to effect a partial resolution which was reassuring. The engineer attended on the date and at the time previously agreed and repaired the system which is now working very well. I have used the firm of J Child on previous occasions and have always been impressed with the service received. John is very knowledgeable, helpful and always explains the problem and how best to resolve it. The communication with the firm is dealt with efficiently and I will continue to use the firm in the future.

Efficient, friendly service. Highly recommended.
Customer Service
I contacted J Child to discuss a boiler service and repair of a leaking toilet. A visit to assess the tasks and provide a quote was quickly arranged and follow up visit to complete the service and repair the toilet was equally straightforward. Quotes were all very clear, the work was completed to a high standard and I would have no hesitation in recommending John. Excellent job by a friendly and efficient team.

Replace oven and hob
Customer Service
John did an excellent job - he took out an old hob and oven and put in new ones. He fitted me in at short notice because I needed it done quickly. A very friendly and efficient company.

Prompt response - excellent service
Customer Service
Thanks the team for a prompt response to a leak, which had caused ceiling damage in the kitchen below. This was fixed very quickly, alongside a number of other small jobs needing attention too. Provided various cost options within the quote, with positive and negative points set out for each route, helping us to make an informed decision on which option to choose. Everything tidied, cleaned and polished before they left, excellent! Would not hesitate to contact them again, recommended!

Extremely efficient boiler installation
Customer Service
We have used John Child Ltd on several previous occasions for smaller jobs and always found him to be reliable and efficient. Therefore, when it came to deciding who to install our new boiler we felt that we could trust him to do a good job. Both installation engineers (including John Child) arrived on time and the work was carried to the agreed schedule and with the minimum of fuss (a rare feat considering the large size and weight of the old boiler they had to remove). Attention to detail was good, from ensuring we knew how to operate the control system and boiler to tidying up at the end of the day. I would definately recommend this company.

Efficient, honest service as usual
Customer Service
On this occasion my boiler was serviced but I have used this company for several years for various things. All aspects of any job have been efficient, honest, cost effective, friendly and punctual. It's nice to be able to use a firm you can trust totally.

Prompt response to dire situation
Customer Service
At the beginning of lockdown, our heating system failed completely - and I had a wife who had just been told to shield because of coronavirus. Having considered our position (and it was still very cold at the time), J. Child donned full protective gear and came and effected a temporary repair. Once lockdown was eased, he came back, did a permanent repair and also serviced our boiler. All our dealings were done in a business like and efficient manner, but at the same time in a very friendly way.

Excellent service
I phoned J Child plumber to report w.c. not flushing and leaking kitchen tap! Visited property the next day, and I had a quotation emailed within 24 hrs, including a photo of mixer tap quoted for! I confirmed accepting the quote and wanting the work carried out! Within 24 hrs email confirming plumber booked in 17/6/2020, 8.30-10.30. Reminder email sent 2 days before! The plumber arrived on the dot exactly at 8.30 on 17/6/20. Both items dealt with efficiently, no mess, excellent and friendly service! Emailed invoice received 18/6/20, with a full breakdown of all items - invoice all as quoted!
