The company came up in an online search and were very knowledgeable and clear about the right survey to meet our needs. The survey was booked, carried out and reported on really quickly which was what we needed. Both the surveyor and office staff were also really friendly and easy to deal with. We'll be using again if the need ever arose and recommend them without a doubt.

Absolute fantastic service. would 100% recommend. Quick service from getting a quote to receiving our report. Very happy customer!
Abbie Jones - January 2019
Comparatively cheaper than many others in Manchester (we went for a Specific Defect Survey and shopped around for the best price vs turnaround time). We received the report the morning after the survey (most other companies we approached only committed to sending theirs within a week of the survey taking place). Would recommend.

Dealt with my query efficiently and were able to visit and produce a survey quickly. They went above and beyond answering a query that was out of the ordinary, and the report was very clear and informative. Will definitely be using again.
Pavlos Sideris - September 2021
Very friendly, informative and helpful all around, gave a descriptive survey of the property that showed signs of movement and the report was sent over the same evening. It was more than I could have hoped for. Thanks for everything.
Sheena King - April 2017
I was very happy with the service. Phone calls were dealt with in a professional and friendly manner. The engineer arrived promptly and explained matters clearly. The report was emailed the same day.

From start to finish a very professional and friendly service. No question goes unanswered and they are very quick to respond to any queries following a report. Extremely knowledgeable & patient as I had many questions that I needed answering. This company go beyond my expectations. I can’t recommend this company high enough and would urge anyone who needs a surveyor to contact Structural Surveys.

Thank you very much to the team at structural surveys for a reliable and supportive service plus the flexibility to accommodate subsequent requests as the application proceeded through Building Regs.
Helen Spiby-Vann - January 2019
Structural Surveys was a great choice when my husband and I needed a survey carried out quickly. Their report was thorough and gave us a sense of security by providing information about the structural integrity of our first home. We would highly recommend them to anyone buying a home as the service was efficient and the communication was excellent.
