No heating and hot water!

We were called one morning by Mrs. T. from Yorkshire. Her 86 year old mum lived in St. Albans and her boiler had failed overnight, and she had no heating or hot water – and of course, cold can be a killer for older people. But this story has a happy outcome. Mrs. T. had found us on the internet…

Fixing a Boiler in time for Christmas

R.W. from Bushey phoned us on Christmas Eve afternoon. Their boiler had failed and they had family coming over to stay for Christmas. Could we help?

Marie Burke

They kept me up to date with time of arrival and when the engineer arrived he worked quickly and tidily to resolve the issues we were having. As a non-technical person it’s good to know that a professional company is on hand to provide a punctual and cost effective services.

You did an absolutely brilliant job fitting our new water heater, your engineer was very neat, polite and I am very pleased with the service rendered by Baker Smith plumbers.

T. Greenfield

Just had Brian from Baker Smith Ltd install a new boiler at our property. The quote was provided quickly, they were on site in a few days and the work was completed quickly and professionally. We would highly recommend them!

Tally H, Luton

Baker Smith were quick to identify the source of the leak and put a temporary fix in place whilst they ordered the correct part. Part was delivered and installed the next day and both we, the managing agent and the tenant were happy with the outcome.

S. O’Carroll

Your team recently visited my home to resolve an issue, the problem was identified and fixed promptly and efficiently. It is without reservation I am more than happy to recommend you to all my work associates, friends, family and my fans on StreetLife.

They got in touch with me a day after I gave my referral and scheduled an appointment on the same day. He was friendly and professional, explained what he would check, asked when he needed to know any details and provided us with a gas safety certificate.

A K, Lemon Glass

Just to let you know your chap was lovely, polite and professional.

S. Moreton

I was very happy with Baker Smith – they were friendly, focused on high quality and found the best solution for installing a new combination boiler. The team was great and I will definitely using them again.

I spoke to my tenant at the property today who was very complimentary about your service in general and about your gas engineer in particular. She reported that he was very thorough with the check, very polite and put on shoe coverings before entering the property.

A. Fisher – Landlord

Quality workmanship

I. York

The plumber from Baker Smith arrived on time, was polite and professional. The work was completed quickly and he cleared up the mess. He left all the spare parts together & explained I should keep them in case there was a problem in future. I was very happy.

Z. Dunn, St Albans

Not only did they find the problem within 10 minutes they contacted me to say that they had sourced the part needed from the company and found out my shower was still under warranty. They gave me all details to contact this company. What a reliable, trustworthy service.

Extremely efficient, professional and courteous.The work was completed on the same day as I had reported there was a problem.

Mrs Harger

Excellent work as always plus boiler report etc.

Shuab and I would like to pass on our thanks and appreciation for your prompt and professional work.

Susanne & Shuab Mirza

Just to say as always top quality service (both from your office and your colleague on site) and all sorted…..please do feed this back.

S. Mirza

Great service as usual from the team at Baker Smith to replace our shower, cistern and some general plumbing work. Have never been disappointed over the last 15 years. John, Mark and colleagues have always provided good, practical advice as well as having a team who do excellent work.

Mark G, St Albans

John, Ginney and Mark are absolute amazing people. Always on hand to fix any challenges and prices are all clear & explained before hand. In the 10 years I have used them to do my Gas safety’s only 3 have come back needing additional works. Honest, trustworthy trades people.

Letting Store

Prompt arrival of the arranged plumber, who was knowledgeable, friendly, plus fixed the Boiler issues we were experiencing swiftly. We would use again.

Turned up promptly, fixed the problem quickly. Neat and tidy workmanship.

Minute Man Press

Liam arrived on time, he was very pleasant, professional & effective. He explained everything, fixed the problem very quickly for a reasonable price. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. This is the first time I have used your company & it’s by far the best plumbing I’ve had.

C S, Welwyn

Excellent service. Friendly, professional and polite.

I can honestly say that in all instances when they have done work they have been a pleasure to deal with. From the start the professionalism and service ethic of the company was evident. Every contact has been pleasant and efficient, nothing has seemed to be a problem.

J. Robinson

The job was completed to a high standard and within good time, both the tenant and us were kept up to date with what was going on:time and dates that the job would be completed. We are thoroughly happy with the job and will continue to use Baker Smith.

Many thanks for the fantastic service fixing my w.c problem and fitting new taps, thanks to the brilliant engineer who carried out the work for us.

A C, St Albans

The engineer seemed to know exactly how to replace the old taps and pipe work and just got on with the work.

Mrs Mote

So pleased with the work done, very professional & neat. The outcome of installation was much better than I expected & location of the pump means a space saving in the cupboard…this is the second time I have used these guys & they are the best by a long shot.

W. Hammond

I cannot rate these guys more highly. I’ve been using them since 2014 and they never disappoint. They are honest and extremely reliable unlike the few out there that try to rip customers off.

Jon, Hatfield

Thank you very much for the service – the plumber was very thorough and really looked for the cause of the problem.

E. Clark

Very happy, thanks! Both the engineers and the office staff are always very pleasant and helpful.

The team were incredibly helpful and patient answering all my emails and my phone calls, I was really impressed to not only receive a quote very quickly but also the offer of potential dates that were convenient for me to complete the job.

C S, Welwyn

I would like to express my thanks for the overall service I have received from Baker Smith for carrying out a boiler service and fitting a new heating gasket. I will definitely use your company in the future.

D M, Harpenden

The toilet had been destroyed at our local scout hut at 9 o’clock at night. As that scout hut was needed by a toddler playgroup from 9 o’clock the following morning, you very kindly re-jigged your running order to be on site to repair things in time.

R. Oldfield

I would like to say that Sebastian was excellent.

G. Daniels

The Baker Smith plumber initially did a temporary repair (after my Emergency Cover provider plumber had failed). Baker Smith then went out of their way to source the necessary part & did the final repair very promptly-all a reasonable price. This firm is trustworthy, professional & reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

S. Mason

My thanks to John and the team for fixing our boiler and such great service – and for the very reasonable charge too.

J Myers, St Albans

I have used this company for the past 15 years I will continue to use them as they are very reliable and they always comeback if there’s a problem which usually there isn’t.

K. Wellesley

The plumbers were so lovely and friendly which helps matters

L. Pearce

A quick inspection, a couple of twists and some fresh new installation to an external pipe, they reassured me that the boiler was actually safe to use. I am immensely pleased with the outcome.

M of SK Fitt, Photography

Please pass on my thanks to the engineer. Job well done. Much appreciated.

G. Henderson

You did an excellent job. I am very happy with the work carried out at my mothers home, he was neat, tidy and professional.

Mrs C, St Albans

Fabulous work done fitting new pipe work for us – would recommend these guys to everyone! I’ve used them twice now and both times service has been fantastic. Polite, on time, trustworthy, and a good job done. I don’t recommend very often but you guys deserve to be shared around!!!

I used Baker Smith for a boiler service and would highly recommend them. A friendly, efficient engineer worked on the boiler and explained, and fixed, what was causing an issue I had with low pressure in the boiler.

Peter C, Watford

Quick and efficient service. Would recommend.

P. Blower

Very efficient and prompt service despite my giving very short notice. Would use again.

Mr. Duncan

A note to express our thanks to you both together with Ricky/George. We were most impressed by the efficiency and courtesy displayed during the installation, a great job – well done! Many thanks indeed.

J. Rosen

Thanks Mark, You are the man and thanks for the new sink. No Sooner said, than done: so acts the man of worth. I have to say such friction-less invisibility to a client is something I have come to deeply respect and aim to emulate.

P T, St Albans

I had a visit at 4.40pm on the same day and it was fixed by 5pm! Polite, efficient, and high tech (sign off process). I was so impressed by their site, I passed their details around at work!

Tenant of Town & Country Lettings

Very happy with the work carried out on both jobs. Arrived on time. I felt confident with the engineer’s ability. Price as discussed.

We are very happy with the installation, and thought Tom was very professional and did a great job.

The staff that we dealt with were professional, efficient, and outlined the costs involved clearly. On day one the boiler was removed and system flushed and on day two the new boiler was fitted and worked completely. All in all a great service from start to finish.

B, London Colney

Being a management company we have to find reliable trustworthy contractors and would highly recommend them.

The Management Office

Very Professional outfit. Followed up with the Tenant and ensure work was completed. Ensured work was done as per instruction and as per estimate.

M. Jogi

Can’t recommend them highly enough. From requesting initial quote to the work being finished they were a pleasure. All the work and finish was top quality and every member of the team both in office and in our house was honest, reliable and incredibly personable.

J. Robinson, St Albans

Booked via John Lewis home solutions for a boiler service. They were fantastic, excellent service, showed up when promised and were just great. Ironically we had a leak the next day and we used Baker Smith as they had been fantastic the previous day, a repeat sterling performance. Highly recommend.

B. Kaye, St Albans

I have had new taps fitted by you. Tom is really amazing, can’t praise him enough for his politeness and professionalism. Please give him a raise! He deserves it.

Liam did a great job.
