  • We had to move our boiler into a new position and John was excellent. They were extremely efficient and did a brilliant job! We couldn’t thank them enough! Very professional. S Springall
  • Have used John for the past two years to service my boiler. I find him to be honest and trustworthy and will definitely be using him again next year to service the boiler. Tina, Bedfordshire

  • John came out very quickly for a routine service to our gas boiler. His attitude was very friendly and as far as a non-specialist can tell, the job was done efficiently and the appropriate paperwork completed. Tuffnell
  • A reliable and efficient service. Kept to schedule, fair prices and pleasant to do business with. I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending John and will certainly be calling again whenever a plumbing issue arises. A good find! Angie
  • Prompt contact, J Child Mechanical confirmed they were on their way prior to the appointment and arrived on time. Quoted a fair price and carried out the job efficiently, explaining what they were doing. Good interaction and gave me confidence. Would thoroughly recommend. Five stars. John
  • I have used John Child before so when the boiler started causing problems, without any hesitation, he was the one to call. Fully explained what the issues were, the fix, the options discussed in detail and approximate costings. John is experienced, reliable and he delivers what he promises. He always finds the time to fully explain all the pros and cons so I can make an informed decision. John and Tania both respond to queries in a timely fashion, all his employees are personable and always turn up on time. They leave the premises clean and tidy and clear away the rubbish. I will always use John for the annual servicing/replacement of boilers, safety checks, certificates and any emergency situation. Customer in Central Bedfordshire
  • At first this was the annual boiler service, and I was aware that there was a leak from the need to for constant topping up of the pressure. This service was carried out, and the leak discovered, and another appointment made. Within a week the repairs were carried out and the boiler now runs as it should without leaking. The fitter (not Mr Child) was careful to explain what was happening, and what was necessary and why. Mr Child came himself at one point in the repair to check that all was going well. I am a very satisfied customer and intend to use him again. His secretary Tania (his wife I believe) was also very helpful. Customer in Central Bedfordshire
  • John child fitted a kitchen sink for me some years ago which caused me to go to him again this year to fix a plumbing problem and to have fitted a new shower unit on two separate occasions. I cannot praise John Child's company enough for the professional job he does with courtesy at the times he says he will. He is the most efficient trader I have ever used. Customer in Bedford
  • John has serviced my central heating for the last two years. He is always courteous, knows his job, and is hard working. A year ago, my heating went down because of a pressure leak. He checked the system, and determined the leak lay under the screed in the new build. I had to get a specialist leak detector firm in to find it. John came back and made everything good. His pricing is always fair. I would recommend both him, and Tania who runs the office, to anyone. Stan, N.Herts
  • Over the years we have tried many plumbers; however John Child is the best. Initially he was asked to replace a boiler and due to his fantastic work ethos, we asked him to complete other work for us (servicing two further boilers and providing a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate). Every single person within the company, Tanya that deals with queries and appointments to John’s colleague, is extremely professional, polite and friendly and they leave the place as they found it. His prices are competitive and in my experience cheaper can end up with shoddy work and bad attitude. John will freely give advice without looking to make a quick buck. We would not use anyone else and I recommend John and will continue to do so. Customer in Central Bedfordshire
