I would like to say that you provide an excellent service. The surveyor came quickly and the order was placed the same day.The fitters, Jamie and Keiron came at the agreed time and worked constantly to get the boiler fitted and the system working. The boiler fitted is a Worcester Bosch, which I am sure will give many years of good service.It can be difficult to find good, reliable workmanship at a competitive price but I would recommend Plumbcare to anyone. Many thanks.
