Try Przemek Mazur ("Shem" Mazur) of Arrow Carpentry and Decorating. Punctual, thorough, did an excellent job on a built in wardrobe for me. email@example.com, 0774 857 38 12
If you're still looking, Tim Mycroft -- 07971 478721. firstname.lastname@example.org. He repaired my boiler four years ago -- and I haven't needed him since.
Donna Lister, ATB. Excellent -- but often busy, as a result. She sorted something out for me that had vexed two other electricians, and for a good price. http://www.atb-electrical.co.uk/
If flowerpower's guys don't work out, you could try Ventrolla. None of the quotes I got was cheap, but Ventrolla was competitive and did a beautiful job replacing a rotted window.
Thanks, all, suspect it's something really simple, so will prob try free fix first! (re. age, it's from 07, leopard (I think... Can't check it at the moment!)
All the best for your venture and your degree. I follow this sector a bit & came across this (later this week) -- Good Deals Investment Conference, for social entrepreneurship. http://www.good-dealsuk.com/
Sam, bit late to this, but I've also seen people coming out of yoga at the library at Balham (Ramsden Road) and also seen ads for yoga at this church... http://www.stmarybalham.org.uk/whats_on/calendar.aspx
Lamberts is rated as one of the best restaurants in London and is always a cut above; Abbeville Kitchen is also good -- from the same stable as the Canton Arms at Vauxhall etc. Also in Balham, Trinity, for lunch and De Lys for the cakes. Chez Bruce, of ... [ more ]
Amazed at the strength of response: coffee drinking's clearly a serious matter in SW12/16/17! At the risk of it getting lost, I have to give a shout out for Bedford Hill's indie coffee shop, de Lys. Coffee's from fresh beans, cakes are fantastic. (Used ... [ more ]
I used Garratt Lane-based Streets Ahead, whose electrician saved me a fortune by salvaging a Hoover washer/dryer I was ready to write off (it'd had an electrical fire). It's still working. Admittedly this was years ago. But they may be able to offer a ... [ more ]
Lamberts. Mirch Masala. Abbeville Kitchen (in Clapham S). De Lys cafe for cakes.
Ventrolla does refurbs and replacements; very happy with the quality of the service, not sure how it stacks up for pricing, but I suspect it's competitive.
Looks like you've got plenty to go on, but if Virgin/Sky not available, try BE -- unlimited download, not sure of upload speeds.
Thanks both -- much appreciated.
Ta all -- beginning to see that Tzctstre is probably right, though. that's quite a day rate...
Hi thanks for contacts -- just working through them. And Michelle, I might take you up on that -- what a great site. Thanks!
I found the Balham tube shop a bit abrupt, too, and now use Timpson within Johnson cleaners on the high street - much more professional.
I used Streets Ahead, Garratt Lane, and their repairman saved me from having to buy a new machine. 5 years later it still works. Haven't used since then, but they used to offer a free consultation service before charging. 02086822297
I bookmarked this ages ago for Balham - can't vouch for any of them, but I've found Alistair Sawdays reliable elsewhere. http://www.sawdays.co.uk/search/listing.php?which=Balham%20London
Hi; bit late to this, so you're probably sorted, but last year I used Mycroft Heating & Plumbing, SW17 9QE: 0208 099 7302/07971 478721 or email@example.com. V. professional and solved a tricky problem fast, efficiently and as cost-effectively ... [ more ]
