Moving house is stressful enough without getting Peter Cox involved
Customer Service
A Peter Cox surveyor decided my newly bought house would need a damp proof course (DPC) on most of the ground floor walls. I instructed them to schedule the work: 1 day of applying the DPC and 2 days of re-plastering. The man who came to do the DPC immediately noted that some of our internal walls were coated in Artex which could contain asbestos and as such he wouldn’t be able to disturb it and wouldn’t be able to carry out all of the work that the surveyor had suggested. I wouldn’t expect him to put himself at risk, I accepted that his decision was based on safety concerns. Why didn’t the surveyor pay attention to what the walls were decorated with? The man guessed the name of the surveyor without any clues from me, meaning that there is a surveyor working for Peter Cox Liverpool who is known to be bad at his job. No solution was offered for treating this wall, no advice about how we could get the Artex tested for asbestos, no offer to come back at a later date and complete the work that I was paying them for. The next day my partner took the day off work to be at the house with the plasterers, who were supposed to arrive 8.30-9am. They never showed up. They never bothered to call me, I had to call them periodically throughout the day for updates. My partner lost a full day's earnings due to them stalling us rather than being honest that they weren't coming. After threatening legal action they eventually offered an acceptable reduction in price - dreadful experience.

First Class- from start to finish

From this initial enquiry, through to the survey and then the work being completed. I was really impressed with the professionalism and high level of customer services. Nothing was too much trouble, a first class job all round.

Great customer experience.
Customer Service
From initial contact through to the completion, it was a pleasure to do business with them. The surveyor was professional and clear, the workmen arrived on time, were courteous, and cleaned up well. Communication with customer facing people in the office pleasant and helpful, who could ask for more.

Excellent job.
Customer Service
From my first contact with the company I had excellent service. The surveyor was very thorough and talked me through the job. The report came promptly and the workmen arrived on time. I was kept informed throughout the work of progress and any changes that might be necessary. They left the sight neat and tidy and kept dust to a minimum. A very efficient and pleasant company to deal with.
