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!

Transformation of our bathroom and ensuite
Customer Service
John and his team did a great job for us. We knew we wanted to update and improve our bathroom and the ensuite shower room but really weren't quite sure where to start. John gave us some great ideas and took the whole project in hand. We were so pleased not to have to try to sort out different people - he did it all. The results are fab and we are very pleased. John also does all our boiler servicing and deals with any other plumbing issues. He has also replaced some of our radiators and solved a leak we had. Every job has been done very well.

The best
Customer Service
I have used John Child before so when the boiler started causing problems, without any hesitation, he was the one to call. Fully explained what the issues were, the fix, the options discussed in detail and approximate costings. John is experienced, reliable and he delivers what he promises. He always finds the time to fully explain all the pros and cons so I can make an informed decision. John and Tania both respond to queries in a timely fashion, all his employees are personable and always turn up on time. They leave the premises clean and tidy and clear away the rubbish. I will always use John for the annual servicing/replacement of boilers, safety checks, certificates and any emergency situation.

Good, efficient work.
Customer Service
At first this was the annual boiler service, and I was aware that there was a leak from the need to for constant topping up of the pressure. This service was carried out, and the leak discovered, and another appointment made. Within a week the repairs were carried out and the boiler now runs as it should without leaking. The fitter (not Mr Child) was careful to explain what was happening, and what was necessary and why. Mr Child came himself at one point in the repair to check that all was going well. I am a very satisfied customer and intend to use him again. His secretary Tania (his wife I believe) was also very helpful.

Trust Worthy Trader
John child fitted a kitchen sink for me some years ago which caused me to go to him again this year to fix a plumbing problem and to have fitted a new shower unit on two separate occasions. I cannot praise John Child's company enough for the professional job he does with courtesy at the times he says he will. He is the most efficient trader I have ever used.

A worthy Trusted Trader
Customer Service
John has serviced my central heating for the last two years. He is always courteous, knows his job, and is hard working. A year ago, my heating went down because of a pressure leak. He checked the system, and determined the leak lay under the screed in the new build. I had to get a specialist leak detector firm in to find it. John came back and made everything good. His pricing is always fair. I would recommend both him, and Tania who runs the office, to anyone.

The best
Customer Service
Over the years we have tried many plumbers; however John Child is the best. Initially he was asked to replace a boiler and due to his fantastic work ethos, we asked him to complete other work for us (servicing two further boilers and providing a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate). Every single person within the company, Tanya that deals with queries and appointments to John’s colleague, is extremely professional, polite and friendly and they leave the place as they found it. His prices are competitive and in my experience cheaper can end up with shoddy work and bad attitude. John will freely give advice without looking to make a quick buck. We would not use anyone else and I recommend John and will continue to do so.
