The service I experienced from Structural Surveys was excellent from start to finish. The call I received from Jane to clarify their quote & check whether I had any questions set the tone for all my dealings with them, from conducting the survey & receiving the report 24 hours later, to following up on some further requests I had. I would definitely use them again & would recommend them to anyone needing a survey. Thanks again for all your help.

Structural Surveys have been a pleasure to deal with - friendly, informed staff and prompt service. Our survey was quickly scheduled in and completed in a timely manner. The calculations and drawings were emailed to us quickly too, before Christmas so that my builder could review it. All good as far as I am concerned!

Very fast response and arrived on time. The engineer spent a long time looking into my problem and also was interested in the insurers 8 years old report of which he was critical as there was no mention in the previous report as to the cause of the problem which had reoccurred. He went into great length explaining what he had found out and what action we should take. The report was ready to download the next morning. We always want something to be cheaper but he was in line with other quotes that we had received. The engineer certainly knew his job and was very pleasant and professional at all time even saying to ring him back if we had any further questions.

I was happy with the service I received from Structural Surveys. The quote I received for a Full Structural Survey was competitive and when I made enquiries I received a prompt, professional response. The report I received was delivered the day after the survey had taken place (a week after my initial enquiry).

The whole process went very smoothly. Appointment booked within a few days. Jon the surveyor arrived 20 mins early and spoke with us at length. Report arrived by email by 8.20 following morning. Report easy to understand and solutions offered for some issues. Highly recommended.
Heather - October 2019
I am looking to purchase a house and I contacted Structural Surveys Ltd after a Homebuyers report highlighted structural movement in the property and generally painted a very negative picture of the property. This was alarming and stressful and our mortgage provider insisted we have a Structural Survey before they could offer us a mortgage. I got in touch with Structural Surveys Ltd and spoke to Jane, who was very friendly and efficient. The survey was booked in within 3 working days and we were issued a very detailed report less than 24 hours after the survey was conducted. I am so impressed with the level of customer service and also the level of detail that has gone into the survey with such a fast turnaround. It was very easy to understand and came with a number of photographs that helped to explain each detail. I am happy with the result of the survey and I hope that our mortgage provider will have no issues regarding this property now. Thank you so much.
