A proper service
Customer Service
My boiler was serviced by British Gas and then Corgi, but communication proved increasingly difficult. The difference with Peter Higson was that a real person answered the phone, we agreed a service date two days later, the guys turned up at the time agreed and did a very thorough and professional job. I subsequently needed advice and Peter could not have been more helpful in a fairly lengthy conversation. They will be my first port of call for all my plumbing needs in future.

Bathroom refurb
Customer Service
We needed a plumber to undertake the removal of our existing bathroom suite and update and relocate it to another room. We were introduced to Pete by our builder who recommended him. From day 1 Pete has not disappointed, he was punctual for pre-meetings to assess the job, took his time to understand the project and promptly put together a fair quotation. Once we commissioned Pete, he recommended we visit Plumbase. Here we met the equally excellent Jo who helped design and render our dream bathroom with a fully tiled shower, half tiled walls and under floor heating. Once ready, Pete’s team led by Mark started the job. Mark is personable, hard working and also excellent at communicating, he’s a very good tiler and plumber. Alongside Mark there is James, another talented plumber and Andy a very knowledgable electrician. Pete also has a few apprentices on his books which is great to see. They all work together seamlessly to get the job done. Mark is always on hand to take your call, answer any questions and importantly look to fix any issues that have emerged during the job. The team completed the job much quicker than we were expecting and ensured the space was left clean and tidy. There were a couple things we needed changing post-completion but the team have quickly sorted these out with no problems. Overall we are highly satisfied by the work the team have undertaken and cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you Pete!

Customer Service
Having been recommended to Peter, I asked about a conversion of our bathroom. Neither of us are getting any younger or mobile and it became a necessity to replace the bath with a walk in shower. We received our quote and were happy to proceed. The team turned up on time to start the work en mass. It was a major overhaul . They promptly set about the task and over, roughly, 10 days the conversion was complete much to the delight of myself and my wife. The guys were polite and thorough in their work and attitude also flexible when they came across any problems. All for the cost of tea and biscuits. We added a few upgrades so the cost rose a little but not outwith our budget. We are more than happy to recommend this company and would use them again.

Job well done
Customer Service
As with a lot of people in this cold weather my boiler stopped working. Peter advised what to do via the telephone but because my outside pipe was frozen solid the warm water trick didn’t work …….. Peter sent his team round in under an hour which I was so grateful for as it was so cold !!! The team sorted out my boiler and re positioned the outside pipe so that it doesn’t happen again. I am so delighted with the service that i have asked them to quote for my downstairs toilet.

A boiler job well done
Peter and his team have been very professional and efficient from the very beginning. I was left with high energetic bills and ineffective heating during the recent cold spell - despite regular Home servicing with British Gas . Peter promptly responded to my telephone enquiry, understood my needs, helped me select the right boiler and got the work started within a week - within my convenience. It was excellent to see Apprenticeship in action in this line of business. A team of friendly apprentices installed the new boiler under Peter’s guidance most efficiently and cleared up at the end. The apprentices were very knowledgeable and well trained to do the job without any problems - especially James, who was most friendly and very patient in communicating every little detail to me . I would highly recommend Peter Higson and his team for any boiler installation.

Cloakroom installation
Customer Service
Peter and the team recently installed new radiators throughout the house and created a new cloakroom in a space underneath the stairs. The whole process was carried out efficiently with great communication at every stage from planning to installation and we are delighted with the result. Thanks so much to Peter and the friendly, helpful and reliable team, we would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Best Plumber Around
Customer Service
We have used Peter over the last 12 years for big jobs such as new radiators, boilers, showers, kitchens through to minor tap repairs. He is helpful and knowledgeable about any job. Responds quickly and come out to the job quickly. Always turns up when he says he will and had always been able to resolve the problem. Work is completed quickly and cleanly and comes back for any follow up work. He even lent us a number of plug in heaters when our boiler stopped working in the middle of winter. We couldn't recommend Peter more highly, hence why he has been our go to plumber for 12 years!

Gas Boiler Service
Really pleased with the service. James found a problem with our gas meter. Peter kept in touch with us throughout the day while it was sorted.
