What do our clients say about us?

  • Your engineer (Steven Taylor) was very responsive and understanding of our needs. The suspected leak was not only in a confined space, but also a quite noisy place so communication was difficult – especially with Covid social distancing. He did some initial analysis on the area and we went to a quieter area to discuss and plan the next steps. The area was re-tested and several suspected leaks identified. His second visit was a long drawn out affair – again carried out very professionally! Even though we postponed the site visit several times at short notice there was no grumbling from Inspectahire – all responses were very professional.There were also delays on site, but Steven made himself available right through to be at our service. Thank you!
