Couldn’t recommend the company enough! We’ve had full structural inspection done by it just few days ago. To begin with when I called to enquire about the survey I was served by a very nice lady whose customer service skills and knowledge were exceptional! Her name was Jane Miller and she assisted me from the start to finish. I was given appointment within few days and was promised the report would be emailed to me the next day after the survey- we got it even same day in the evening! And the report itself was brilliant - very thorough and clear, with lots of photographs to support it! The surveyor Andrew Russell has got wealth of experience in this field as I’ve found out doing the research beforehand and it really shows! Couldn’t ask for more! Thank you so much!

Excellent service. Surveyor was great - personable, super-courteous, sympathetic and very thorough. Really clear report and fabulously speedy - emailed early morning after the inspection. Administrative staff really great to deal with. Competitive price - well worth it.

A friendly and very professional service. I found the quick turnaround and price to be better than anything else out there. Appointment and survey results in the same week. The survey was very detailed and easy to follow. The phone is always answered, unlike others I had rang. Very pleased.

Christine Garner - March 2017
Top job from a top bloke, had Structural Surveys in relation to a mature tree that has caused and is causing damage to my property, I needed an expert opinion on the reason. I had applied for permission to fell the tree from local council. Hopefully with the aid of the considered report and findings I am hopeful for a positive result and I will soon be able to secure and make safe my property once more. Many thanks to Structural Surveys for their professional and personal support in this problem, very prompt and diligent, in the fact the engineer arrived 30 minutes before appointed time and report ready by the next day. Many thank hoping that I can uncross my fingers and the council concur with the excellent report.
