A very good job

When our boiler finally stopped producing hot water for us, except when it felt like it, Mitchells were helpful in advising us on the options for a new one, and went out of their way to fit us in as quickly as possible. John arrived on the dot with all his tools and equipment, and worked quickly and unobtrusively all day. By the end of the day we had hot water again, and the next morning John finished off and left everything clean and tidy by lunchtime. He explained the new controls and warned us what to expect in the first few days. He was very nice to have around and we appreciated the good work he did. We have used Mitchells for our boiler servicing for a number of years and would always recommend them.

Our old boiler finally gave up the ghost and the company brought forward the date to fit a new boiler as soon as they were able to which we appreciated. John and Jacob studiously got on with the job in hand, flushing the system and leaving everything tidy. An excellent piece of work thankyou.

John and Matt have been servicing our boiler for a while. It finally packed up. John and the team were excellent at explaining the options, and worked really hard to bring everything forward so we had the fewest days without heating and hot water possible. John and Jacob then installed it really efficiently and with an absolute minimum of fuss and bother. Will continue to use. Can't recommend highly enough.

John and his assistant Jacob fitted a new boiler for me last week. They were very efficient, clean, tidy and prompt, arriving exactly when they said they would and completing the work ahead of time, with minimum fuss. The boiler is working really well, the system has been flushed and all radiators are giving out heat. John and Matt have been servicing my old boiler for many years, and have managed to keep it limping along well past its anticipated expiry date. Kim is always very helpful, and manages to get someone to me if I have a problem. I highly recommend this company.

John and his assistant were at our house for x 2 days replacing radiators and checking for a possible leak in the system. They were early both days, respectful of the fact that we were there, covered all flooring with dust sheets, worked quietly, and tidily and were just a pleasure to have around. I would very happily recommend them to anyone 😊

John, Jacob and Kim work well as a team along with Alex the electrician and his colleague, fitting a replacement boiler and thermostatic valves. We were very pleased from the initial assessment to the completion of the work in less than three days. They worked very efficiently and as non-invasively as possible. We are pleased with the outcome. Thank you all. We have been customers of R J Mitchell for many years and we would recommend them.

I have been a customer of Mitchell and Son for years. This time we needed a fairly major overhaul of the central heating system including a new boiler, and addition of a couple of new radiators. As ever they were pleasant, reliable, problem-solving, tidy and punctual.

We contacted RJ Mitchell when we were in the process of buying our house, as the survey had flagged a very old system. Once we were in, John and Kim were really helpful getting the work booked in and talking through options, including removing the old back boiler from the fireplace and installing a new combi in the kitchen, along with new radiators and pipes. During the work we worked from home, and John and Jacob were really respectful of our space the whole time, they were quiet and tidy and put the house back to normal at the end of each day. John always involved us in the process and kept us updated with plans. We’re really pleased with such high quality work and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

R J Mitchell & Son Boiler Installation Review
Customer Service
Quality
Value
I contacted R J Mitchell & Son along with four other contractors to quote for a replacement gas boiler and six radiators, one of which was in a new location involving the removal of carpet and flooring. I used Which and other local reviews to find reputable contractors. My first impressions of the Company were good from arranging the first visit to John arriving on time to discuss my requirements. I selected R J Mitchell because I was impressed with John's knowledge along with his proposed method and timescale to carry out the work. His quote wasn't the cheapest nor was it the most expensive, however, my decision to use John was not based on cost. A big concern was that the installation would be carried out without mess and damage to fixtures and fittings. John was very respectful and carried out the work to a very high standard with no mess or damage, communicating at every stage of the process with minimum impact on the household. The job was started on time and completed slightly ahead of the agreed schedule. It was to budget with no additional cost. I was not looking forward to the disruption but overall it was a pleasure to have John in the house. In summary, I would recommend John and would describe him as likable, conscientious, competent and reliable.

John replaced a boiler for and ensured the radiators were working. As they knew I had been without heat and hot water for a while, John and Kim arranged for the installation to be done at the weekend! John was always on time, friendly and polite and very neat, particularly in clearing away afterwards. It’s lovely to have a warm house again and I would highly recommend John for any future work.
