Efficient and professional service
Customer Service
The team displayed excellent customer service and went the extra mile to get out to us and fix our heating and hot water issues knowing we had a new baby in the house too. We had two engineers out to assess and carry out some fixes- they worked well together to communicate and share what had been done on the previous visit and worked persistently until our heating and water issues were solved. Prompt and efficient service. Thank you! Would highly recommend

What seemed like a tricky job made effortless
Customer Service
John renewed the electrical wiring centres and thermostats for our underfloor heating. The old wiring was faulty and patched throughout and many of the thermostats didn't work for one reason or another adding what seemed like a number of, unknown complexities. John worked through the backlog of legacy wiring and problems with ease and has now brought our heating system up to date. He was prompt and flexible with his time and the job finished on budget - he was also communicative and helpful throughout the process, making recommendations on which equipment to use going forward. Any challenges were recognised early on and resolved swiftly. I'd strongly recommend J Child Mechanical Plumbing Gas for all complex gas and plumbing needs.

Helpful and efficient
Customer Service
The initial survey was informative and Alan and Mickey carried out a very professional job, seemingly never stopping for a break to get the work done to schedule (new boiler and radiators). Boiler seems a high quality product (internet-enabled!). Removing all waste including a redundant macerator was also helpful. Definitely recommended.

New boiler within 2 days
Customer Service
The boiler failed one evening and I emailed J Child that night. By 8am the following morning I'd been promised they'd look at their schedules and get someone to us. By 10.30am Alan the plumber was with us. Due to the cost of the faulty part and the age of the boiler, we opted for a new one. Later that afternoon, John called us to go through options with us then provided a quote. We accepted it and the boiler was ordered that evening. By 8.30am the following morning, Alan was back to fit the boiler. He worked hard for most of the day to make sure we had a new, working boiler by the end of the afternoon. Great service and I can't think of anything negative at all.

Fast efficient friendly service
Customer Service
I called J Childs to arrange a boiler service and was helped by the very friendly Tania who helped get it arranged at a convenient time and day. On the day Alan turned up exactly on time, was very respectful of my house and time and did his job quickly and efficiently, explained his findings and made sure I understood everything. The report was available next day and the whole process was very cost effective, would very much recommend them and will be using them in the future!

Excellent work - again!
Customer Service
Alan from J Child Mechanical Plumbing and Gas installed a new radiator for us with excellent results. He fully discussed a number of small issues as they came up, and resolved them without fuss, hassle, or mess. A very smooth operation. I invited them to do this work because of the excellent job they made last year of installing a new boiler. I highly recommend their work from start to finish.

Superb, reliable service
Customer Service
This is my second time to use J Child and the whole experience has been great. I find the company completely reliable, honest, efficient and prompt. They always arrive on time and complete the work to a high standard. The communication, admin and paperwork is clear and professional. They are extremely courteous and work focused. They make good suggestions without forcing their views. Very easy to deal with.

Prompt and efficient
Customer Service
Our downstairs loo sprang a leak and J Childs were able to send someone out that same day. Problem solved! I have also used them for tap and radiator repairs and found the service very prompt and efficient. I would heartily recommend them.

Excellent service
Customer Service
Our kitchen tap broke spraying water all over the kitchen. Called J Child’s who came out the same day and ordered a new tap as well as replaced the bathroom tap the next day. The work was excellent and will use them again when needed. I would recommend them to anyone
