How it all happens...
1. The Survey
Comprises of a free visit to your home at a suitable time and day. During the survey we utilise modern visualisation apps, loads of images of previous jobs and lots of help and guidance in order to gain an understanding of what you want. We discuss any concerns you may have regarding design, access, carpets, decorating etc and the main thing…prices. No pushy sales, No tactics.
2. The Quote
is usually sent with 48 hours via email or post. If you would then like to move forward with us, we book you a suitable installation date and at this point you are welcome to arrange a visit to our premises where we recreate your required installation using one of our room sets. We have beams, mantels, shelves and hearth samples on display. We’ll even aim to source the stove you’re wanting if you’re purchasing from us. This gives you the chance to see the actual stove you’re buying and allows you to ask lots of questions and test our knowledge even further! We take a small £100 deposit to proceed.
3. The Installation
is carried out usually within 6-8 weeks. We call you leading up to the installation to check everything is ok. We also call or email the day before installation to check access, parking etc. On arrival, we provide dust sheets and if needed, we’ll clear the room where possible to ensure everything is kept safe. During installation, we keep in contact with you regarding any specific requirements like how big the hearth is etc. As part of our service, we can arrange a delivery of logs and a log store from one of our selected suppliers. We provide a brief instruction before we go to ensure you’re happy with everything.
4. The After Sales
is where we really shine! We’ll arrange to pop back and see you at a convenient time to ensure you’re happy with the job and we’ll go through the operation and explain how to maintain your new stove. We can also arrange ongoing log deliveries and an annual chimney sweep and stove service to ensure your stove is always in perfect condition.
