Nick helped to design and then built and painted a beautiful bookcase for our study. He kept us informed of timelines to build and delivery and then completed the installation in one day. Very helpful throughout and we are very pleased with the end result - would highly recommend him.

My bespoke shelves were created strictly to house my LP record collection. Everything was made to measure form scratch and supplied exactly as requested. The pandemic affected the original fitment dates owing to lockdowns, but contact was maintained throughout and the work was completed as close to its original projected completion date as was possible. Service was friendly and I am very happy with the finished product, which looks beautiful. These were not cheap shelving units as they were specifically made to measure, so I have recorded the top score for value on the basis that this is a premium quality bespoke product.

Fantastic fitted bookshelves and cupboards

Nick completely fitted out a study / office for us with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and cupboards. All the shelving is fully adjustable with invisible fixings which we found easy to use to accommodate all different sizes of books. Nick was meticulous in his measurements and attention to detail, so the end result looks perfect, even inside the cupboards. The work wasn't cheap, but after years of living with DIY bookshelves, it's wonderfully calming working in a beautifully finished study - worth every penny! Throughout, Nick and his 2 assistants were tidy, very friendly and professional. We highly recommend them.

Nick has done work for us previously, so we were confident in approaching him for a fitted bookcase, television cabinet and display unit. He listened to our proposals and was able to contribute very valuable ideas based on his considerable knowledge and experience. Nick submitted detailed plans, work schedule and a competitive quote. During the preparatory work, he kept us informed of progress. The work was done to schedule and to the highest of standards. Throughout the process, Nick was very professional and always courteous and respectful. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Sussex Bookcase Company and, indeed, have since commissioned another piece of work.

Having been so pleased with the first job he did for us, we asked him back a second time. This time for shelving, cupboards and a desk in the study. Once again, we are very happy with the result. Nick is a pleasure to deal with, always polite, thoughtful, even during COVID times and has good attention to detail. I would absolutely recommend him.

Nick has just completed a tricky big corner project - bookshelves sympathetic with a Georgian drawing room - and I'm absolutely thrilled with the result!, Always delightful to deal with, he's also very good at marshalling your thoughts right through to concept. He arrives with sample moulds and woods, measures up and does drawings and a quote immediately and a timeline for the work. Not only was it quick but he finished early. Very impressive. Working round Covid restrictions is no mean feat but he observed all protocols and on the day of delivery the bookshelves went up in a couple of hours and are staggeringly lovely! A huge amount of room for my large book collection and an elegant look which finishes the room. I can't recommend him highly enough and suffice it to say he is already working on a second project for me!

I don't hesitate in returning to Nick for any shelves, cupboards, bookcases etc as his work has never been anything less than excellent. I have used him lots of times for various jobs in our home. You have to wait for your turn as his services are in high demand but this reflects well on his work to my mind! His attention to detail is spot on, he thinks of all the technical things you might not have considered and the finished product is always of a high standard. I am very pleased with the home office worktop he has just made and fitted. No complaints at all!

The third time I have used Nick and he always performs to the highest standards delivering in this case shelving in an utility room. Being a new build, wall fixtures are tricky and at time almost impossible but Nick found just the right method and even delayed completion to have the exact tool and fixture to complete the job. All to budget; neat and tidy. Highly recommended.

Nick was a recommendation and we have been extremely pleased with the cupboards and shelving he put in the playroom. So much so that we are working with him again to put some in the study. He is highly efficient, thorough and the results are of a high standard. I would highly recommend him.
