I can’t thank Mel enough for coming to my rescue. I had been burgled a few days prior to my back door lock breaking leaving me feeling very vulnerable and scared, especially with having a baby in the house! Within 20 minutes of making my initial call, Mel came straight away and promptly fixed my door. Her service was exceptional, and her bubbly professional attitude put me instantly at ease. She even gave me advice on how to secure my house better. I would highly recommend her. Thank you again for everything! -Laura

I first contacted Mel when I moved to York. She gave me great advice on home security so I felt secure without spending money on expensive locks I didn’t need. I’ve since contacted Mel twice for ‘emergencies’. She always responded very quickly and offered same day support either personally or through one of her colleagues. She’s one of the best tradespeople I’ve come across in York – always helpful, knowledgeable and responsive.
