Thoughts for the day 

Alexander Graham Bell 1847-1922

"Before anything else, preparation is the key to success."

    
      
      
     

 

 

John Ruskin 1819-1900

"It is unwise to pay too much, but it is unwise to pay too little.  When you pay too much you lose a little, that is all.  When you pay too little, you lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.

The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little, and getting a lot, it can't be done.  If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is as well to add something for the risk you run.  And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better."

Good website, easy to use, did what it said on the tin.  I followed up with David Cunningham Associates Chartered Building Surveyors.  Very good company to use. Quick at producing the survey, a good price compared to others would recommend. 

Shaun, Southend.

The website worked well and I used David Cunningham.  I was very satisfied with the service he offered.  Veronica, Waltham Forest, London.

The website was simple and clear to use and the e-mail summary of surveyors and their costs was useful back-up to the amounts on screen.  The e-mails from surveyors were also welcome.  I used David Cunningham Associates, everything worked well.  They were reassuringly professional on the phone, available at fairly short notice and produced the survey report quickly.  I am happy to recommend them.  A. Epping, Essex.

The website had a good choice of local engineers and I used David Cunningham.  He was very quick to visit our property and gave us a full report that we needed.  Duncan, Rayleigh, Essex.

Local Surveyors Direct is easy to use and convenient for estimates, although to be aware prices are estimates and you must contact supplier direct to agree final cost.  After reading previous feedback we chose David Cunningham.  We spoke to David directly and Leigh completed our survey.  We weren't disappointed, we received an excellent service in a very timely manner (within a week).  We would definitely use them time and time again and I would happily recommend them to all of you wanting a very quick and efficient service.  Charmaine, Dartford, Kent.

The website worked well.  I engaged David Cunningham, he has already produced the report I needed and I found him responsive and professional.  Many thanks Sean, Dagenham.

David Cunningham was excellent in his response and service given.  He was very helpful and although he was busy himself surveying the property, he found time to go through the problems in a very personal way which is not found too often these days.  I would be happy to recommend your website and particularly David Cunningham to anybody who seek these services.  Please pass on my sincere thanks to David and Leigh who attended.  Jayant, London E15.

Easy to use website.  I chose David Cunningham.  Friendly service. Good clear report.  Rachel, Gravesend.

The website worked very well, was easy to use and listed a number of potential suppliers.  We placed an order with David Cunningham Associates.  They were very quick to arrange a viewing and emailed the Building Survey Report within 3 working days.  This was followed up the next day with the hard copy version, with photos from the Report.  I found them to be very helpful and responsive, and would have no hesitation in recommending them.  Irene Goodfellow.

Yes the website worked well, but the surveyors were spread out over quite a large area.  We used David Cunningham Associates as they were near where we currently live, and to be frank, they were brilliant in every aspect.  Dare I say, they were faultless.  I wouldnt usually use a service like this on the web, however David Cunningham Associates were very helpful on the phone with my initial enquiry and very reasonably priced, so I decided to give them a try. Very glad I did.  R.Webster.

The website was absolutely fine.  I ordered a building survey from David Cunningham Associates.  The survey was appropriate, and the reply (with survey) very much exceeded their estimate on time.  They had estimated 2 weeks, and I got an email response within a couple of days, and the postal copy with photos only a couple of days later.  I could have done without the phone calls from other surveyors.  I dislike unsolicited telephone calls.  In summary, very pleased with the service from this website.  Thank you.  M Smith.
