“Water leak in airing cupboard”

Written on: 27/11/2014 by TerryR1504 (1 review written)

I was working away when my wife informed me that water was showing on the kitchen wall, having recently had the flat roof re-done I suspected a problem with the boiler. My wife contacted a friend of the family who does general house repairs including plumbing, he came and had a look realised it was a joint on the pipe work in the airing cupboard that had deteriated placed a bucket underneath and told my wife he couldn't do anything for a couple of days. While driving home I passed a van… Read Full Review

“No fuss and problem sorted”

Written on: 27/11/2014 by Bourbonmelanie (1 review written)

I could hear water leaking in my kitchen but could not see it. I arranged a visit for the Friday and was given a window of time when the engineer would appear. Had a quick phone call from the engineer when he was on his way. He identified the fault in the pipes behind the washing machine and had the parts he needed in his van. The pipe was replaced, the washing machine was returned to its normal position. The engineer was very pleasant, professional and explained everything throughout the… Read Full Review

Very pleased with the way the engineer dealt with problem but he found that the service,which was carried out in June, had not been done correctly (by a different company) resulting in my being unable to light the fire which hadn't been used during the summer.he also found that the radiants were broken and should not have been left in that state… Read Full Review

“Not happy ”

Written on: 25/10/2014

I called Homeserve on 11 Oct 2014 with breakdown of boiler. Gas engineer came and replaced pressure switch on 16 Oct but boiler did not start. On 20 Oct a new fan was fitted and still did not know the cause of breakdown. Next day switch electrode was changed. Boiler started but soon developed another fault. I was then told as the boiler did not completely broke down they can't do anything. Today 13 days have passed and no joy. I am not at all happy with their service. My boiler is valiant… Read Full Review

“Fast, efficient service”

Written on: 28/09/2014 by jrf31 (2 reviews written)

Called HomeServe on a Sunday morning as we had problems with a broken toilet. The operator was very helpful and made sure it wasn't an immediate emergency before advising that the relevant sub-contractor would be in touch shortly with an ETA. 10 minutes later we got a call to arrange a mutually convenient time. The plumber was excellent. Very friendly, helpful and professional. He replaced the part and repaired a patch-up job by the previous owners, all whilst showing me how to check for… Read Full Review

“Toilet outside down pipe”

Written on: 27/09/2014 by EvaO'Reilly445 (1 review written)

Were the toilet down pipe enters the outside concrete it started to leak every time the toilet was flushed. Overtime the water escaping was getting worse to such an extent that I was worried it could freeze in the coming winter and would be dangerous for two 80 year old pensioners. Called Homeserve you sent out a very competent young man who repaired it to a very high standard. Any trouble in the future I know who to call… Read Full Review

“Good work but I waited in all day and they had to...”

Written on: 25/09/2014 by RicardoP (1 review written)

This was not an emergency job but the repair was scheduled for the next day between 0800 and 1300. Because the plumber was delayed on other jobs which took longer than expected, I waited in the whole day. Eventually, the job was rescheduled for the first job of a following day and was completed early in the morning. I have ticked the 'yes box' for recommending to a friend but would warn 'a friend' that the scheduled time is unreliable (I have had a similar problem before but not as bad as this… Read Full Review

“An excellent service - worth every penny!”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by Connerz3 (1 review written)

We had a blocked service pipe at the internal stopcock in the kitchen following a burst water main a few weeks ago. The incoming water pressure got less and less as time went on. I called Homeserve on the Saturday and a plumber came out on Sunday and fixed the problem. He checked our supply to the hot water tank and feeder tank to ensure no debris had got into the system before he left. Everyone concerned was very helpful and reassuring. The service is excellent value for money and gives… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2014 by AlfredoLacroix (1 review written)

I am a long-standing subscriber to HomeServe, but only this year have I needed to use my policy - on five separate occasions, twice for a plumbing problem, twice for a problem with a fault in the lock on an outside door and once for an electrical issue. I was 100% satisfied with the service I received on each occasion from the person who took my initial details, to the person who arrived to rectify the problem. If i had ever doubted the value of the policy over the years, I do not do so now. I… Read Full Review

“Gas leak/boiler repair”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by tomwoods123 (1 review written)

I called engineer out for a noisy boiler. The engineer was unable to fix the problem due to needing a replacement part which had to be ordered. I was told it was not safe to keep the boiler on so it was switched off. Fair enough. No hot water day one. Rescheduled for second appointment. The second engineer came out five days later after part had been received, did some tests, went mad and started sticking condemned stickers over the boiler and gas fire, insisting that there were leaks coming… Read Full Review

Shortly after posting this review I was contacted by homeserve. I was asked to go over what had happened and clarify a few points. He assured me he would look into it and investigate what had gone on. He got back to me a short time later and agreed what had happened was not acceptable, apologised and I was compensated financially. I have had experience of poor service with a few companies in the past and complaining usually does no more good than just making me feel better for getting it off my chest. At best, a hollow apology is all you get. It's nice to finally hear someone say we're sorry this has happened and here is some compensation to hopefully make you feel better about the situation. Well it has. Thanks

“Clearing of down pipe connected to washing-machine”

Written on: 15/09/2014 by Barrysk284 (1 review written)

The two chaps performed the unblocking of the pipes satisfactorily and were able to make useful suggestions as to how a recurrence of the problem might be avoided. BUT They did NOT return the pipe from the washing machine to the down pipe. The pipe from the washing machine was left hanging loose! I had not noticed their careless oversight. The next time I did a wash the kitchen was completely flooded with water before I had realised. The floor covering has been affected.The joins between… Read Full Review

“Excellent rapid response”

Written on: 14/09/2014 by ChrisMcI (6 reviews written)

My home insurance includes "home emergency" services from Homeserve. One evening we experienced a toilet that would not stop flushing. After ascertaining that the situation was not causing damage to the property, the call centre arranged an appointment for the following morning. However, approximately 30 minutes later my call we were contacted to say an engineer had just finished a call in the locality and enquired if the visit could take place that same evening in spite of being quite late.
