Fantastic response & great service
Customer Service
My boiler broke down on the coldest day of this year, beginning of February and -6c. I had an insurance policy with British Gas and called them only to find that they couldn't come out to take a look until mid March, John Child arrived half an hour after my call. My 20 year old boiler had bit the dust and I needed a new one, which was ordered and fitted all before British Gas could even come out to take a look and for considerably less than they would have charged. This is the third time John Child has come to the rescue, as such I've cancelled my policy with British Gas and will be relying on them for all my plumbing and gas jobs from now on.

Excellent work
Customer Service
I had a drip on the manifold for the underfloor heating. A different heating company wanted to replace the whole manifold unit. I used John as a second opinion. He came around very promptly and decided that a new unit was not necessary. He returned with two small parts, dismantled the leaking joints and replaced half a dozen o-rings. All now perfect for a fraction of the price the other company was going to charge.

Fast Response
Customer Service
We had a leaking component on our water heater which was causing a small flood. Called J Childs and Tania was very helpful. Was able to reschedule some work for one of the engineers and got him round to the house quickly. Diagnosed the issue and went to get a part - back within an hour or so. Excellent customer service and fair price - would definitely recommend. Thank you

Very quick response and next day fix
Customer Service
My boiler stopped working overnight during -7 degrees temperature. I called J Childs plumbing in the morning and they came out within hours and carried out a diagnostic which identified it as either of 2 problems (faulty flame sensor or PCB fault). They got the parts and came mid-day the next day. They tried a new flame sensor first (cheapest resolution) and it worked. My final bill came in lower than the quote. Very fast and professional service. This is the second time I have used this company, I would recommend to anybody. Good customer service all round.

None Better
Customer Service
Choosing a plumber can be a bit of a lottery, but I found a winner with J Child. I needed a leaking radiator replaced and the work was carried out very efficiently, on time and at very reasonable cost. Communication with the office was also very friendly and helpful. What more could you ask?

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.
