5 stars – ‘This Companies Customer Service Is 5*
‘Ordered 4 Dragonfly cast iron radiators, custom sizes so had to wait several weeks but was aware of that. Radiators arrived and as warned, it was an outside delivery, we had to get the radiators to their final locations, make sure you have help, these can’t be moved by one person, I had my sons help me, both adults and I needed the help. When fully built the largest radiator weighs about 40 stone. We had a couple of small issues during the assembly stage but Trads were more than helpful and sent us some small spares FOC. This companies customer service is 5*, I couldn’t be any happier with them or the product. All are now working, keeping us warm during this cold winter and look amazing.’
5 stars – ‘Absolutely Delighted With My Beautiful Hand Burnished Radiators. All the staff are very helpful and they really went above and beyond with the after-care to make sure everything was perfect. Can’t recommend them highly enough.’
