  • Mr E A**** – Southampton, Hampshire

    …a perfect example of first class customer service. Gareth & Chris went the extra mile to install the system as we wanted it – not as might have been easiest, and were always polite and considerate… As always, it’s the people that matter – very pleased.

    Both the system designer and the install team were excellent. I am really pleased with the end result.
