My name is AJ and I have been working for homeowners, landlords and estate agents for more than 10 years. In that time I must have completed at least 15,000 jobs. I am originally from Dudley but moved to London about 9 years ago. I have moved back to the Midlands now and I must say, I'm enjoying being back. I spend all my free time with family which consists of my son Zen (7 months), daughter Arissa (8) and wife Maya.
I am based near Birmingham, but cover all West Midlands, East 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 cover London regularly.
Some of the major towns I cover are listed on this page. I work Monday to Sunday and cover most areas every day.
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 and want a way to back that up by offering my customers a 'no risk' guarantee. If you don't pass, you don't pay. I have heard too many stories of boilers being replaced for no reason, complete rewiring of properties for no reason and changing of 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 and they don't charge if they fail you. Take a look: http://www.just-mots.co.uk/ or http://www.justmots.eu/
