My name is AJ and I have been working for homeowners, landlords and estate agents for more than 14 years. In that time I must have completed at least 17,000 jobs. I am originally from Dudley but moved to London about 10 years ago. I moved back to the Midlands 3 years ago and I'm enjoying being back. I spend all my free time with family which consists of my son Zen (5), daughter Saira (12) and wife Maya.
I am based in Dudley which is close to Birmingham. I cover a large area which includes most of the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Bucks, Berks, Surrey and Greater London and some surrounding areas. I do sometimes go further out depending on how much the order value is.
I started off working for British Gas (many years ago) where I became one of their leading engineers. I learned a lot but always wanted to run my own business, so I left and started out on my own. I was already qualified in gas but decided to further increase my skillset and qualify to be able to carry out EPC's and Electrical Certificates.
I've worked for many estate agents and letting agents producing certificates, reports, inventories, photographs and floor plans. Many landlords and homeowners use my services because they are value for money and because I offer an honest service.
I don't do repair work. This is mainly because I want to offer an independent and honest service. I have heard too many stories of boilers being replaced for no reason, complete rewiring of properties for no reason and changing of boiler parts when there was nothing actually wrong in the first place.
Some companies offer slightly lower priced inspection and testing but it could cost you much more money in the long run.
Some of you might have used MOT only car garages – the principal is the same. They don't do repairs. Take a look: http://www.just-mots.co.uk/ - 'With nothing to gain from failing your car we can guarantee you an independent and unbiased MOTtest'.
