I was greatly impressed by your offer of next day service. Then well within 48 hours of my placing the order a remarkably thorough and well-argued report was emailed to me. Speed and thoroughness rarely go together : well done! Ray Panther arrived 20 minutes early and spent a full four hours examining the property. Twice he declined offers of a drink. He simply got on with doing the job. I will have no hesitation in recommending Structural Surveys to my friends and colleagues.

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
Very pleased with the prompt service we received. From first enquiry through to receiving the final report, it was a matter of days. The report we received was detailed and helpful to our needs, with relevant photos to back up the detailed information. Recommended.
Rob Hargreaves - November 2019
Quick, easy and good value for money. I will definitely recommend and use again in the future.
Scott Hymas - March 2019
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.
Gail Hayes - February 2018
Very professional and speedy service. Andrew was knowledgeable and able to turnaround the survey the same day rather than the 2 weeks others quoted. I now have exactly what I need to be informed about the property we are purchasing. Andrew and team were incredibly helpful and have and fielded my additional questions after reading the report. Honestly the most professional aspect of purchasing a property I have experienced so far with a professional company moving with the times!
James Cragg - February 2020
I contacted Structural Survey for a survey on a house we were purchasing. They were very professional from the start and quick with responses to emails. The report on the survey came through very quickly and was in a format that was concise and easy to read and understand. I would highly recommend the firm.

Keith Holland very much recommends Structural Surveys. I phoned up and spoke to a very nice young lady; we arranged a time for Andrew Russell to come the following day. He arrived early, having phoned and asked if he could come earlier. He was a very nice person. Job done. The following day I, got my report, paid and all over with in 3 days. Very, very satisfied. I would recommend this service to anybody.
Keith Holland - September 2019
We were very happy with the service provided by the company. No time was wasted in contacting us and arranging an appointment to ascertain the cause of the cracks in the wall. The structural engineer conducted his examination of the house promptly, and we had our report by the end of that day. He was very friendly and explained to us the cause of our problems. We were both relieved to find out that the problem was not a major concern, and were reassured by his approachable manner. We have since had the broken drain replaced, and are currently awaiting plaster work to be carried out within the next couple of weeks. We would highly recommend Structural Surveys to other people.
