"Jim's property care service is total. There is nothing he can't organise or complete. I now have a dream workshop and extracted polishing room. The acoustic room brings customers back time and time again. The project was on budget and under time - and business is booming! All thanks to his team's care and attention."

"I worked with Jim last year when designing and opening my first salon. He is extremely professional and pays attention to detail to ensure a job is completed well. We were working on a tight timeframe to complete a big job and Jim worked hard to finish the work, making clever suggestions to what would work practically in a busy hair salon. I would highly recommend Jim. It is reassuring going forward with a new business to know we have Jim to rely on for any property care issues which arise."

"I used Jim for general (various electrical, plumbing and joinery) renovation works after buying my house in August 2015. I am delighted with not only the great, reliable work carried out to the short timescale we had, but also with the creative ideas produced by Jim and his team for other works I wished to pursue in the future. Jim had explained all the tasks and aspects involved in the work before carrying out - an all-round very responsive, friendly, easy company to use. I'm very impressed with the time and cost against the work done."

"For some time we have had a problem with our boiler in that the hot water would only be available when the heating was on. We have a contract with British Gas who looked at the system and said there was a wiring fault which was not covered in the contract. I contacted Jim, who kindly arranged to visit our house the next day at 16.00 hours. Mr Rutherford and a colleague arrived at the specified time, which is always a good sign. Mr Rutherford and his colleague carried out a comprehensive test on our heating system and discovered numerous faults within the wiring. We had purchased the house from a builder who had carried out all the work on the house himself. After some time, due to the complexity of the heating / wiring system (previous owner), Mr Rutherford discovered that the hot water tank should have been fitted with a thermostat which should have been wired directly to the timer at the boiler, and that the tank should be twice the size it was for the size of the house. None of this was ever mentioned by British Gas. We discussed what was involved in rectifying the problems. As we had a limited budget replacing the tank with a larger one was not an option, so Mr Rutherford quoted a price for fitting a thermostat and wiring which would rectify the immediate hot water problem. The price quoted was very reasonable so a date and time was arranged for the work to be carried out. Mr Rutherford did not charge anything for the three or so hours he and his colleague spent in my house, which, in this day and age, is quite unheard of. I highly recommend Jim and have done so to all family, friends and work colleagues. It is so refreshing to find someone with good work ethics, who will carry a job through to completion and make sure the customer is satified."
