CHI Construction

Rousdown Rd, Torquay TQ2 6PB, UK – 01803 605211

Well what can we say apart from Brilliant! Sean and his team constructed a large extension to our existing house and from start to finish did a great job. From the start sean was thorough with the quote detailing all stages and cost, the time frame was spot on and met and the costing was accurate. I would without a doubt HIGHLY recommend this company to do any building work and will certainly use them again should the arise. Thank you Sean and your Team.

In our many years of building experience CHI Construction have been without doubt the best construction firm we have engaged to work for us. We have had some very tricky technical issues with this latest project, none of which phased CHI Construction who swiftly brought solutions to the table, which were not only ingenious but well within the budget set. We would wholeheartedly recommend them to anybody considering undertaking building works of any sort. It would be extremely unwise for anybody not to ask CHI Construction to quote for any project they are considering no matter the size.

We have used other people in the past but would definitely use Tris again in the future and also recommend him to others. Reliable, nicely priced and professional.

HOWEVER as soon as the company's r new owners took it over, I received a phone call offering to replace the old alarm immedietely. A new alarm arrived promptly, which is of a higher spec than the one ordered. This is great customer service from the new team.

I just wanted to say thanks for getting the test key to me so quickly before the audit. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone +++

Driving Schools

Williams driving school

4 Cary Park Rd, Torquay TQ1 3PU, UK – 01803 370087

I passed my test under the guidance of Marc Rosindale from Williams Driving School. He was a really relaxed instructor who walked me through everything I needed to know, I felt relaxed in the car and had some good jokes whilst learning. He helped me from the basics all the way up to where I am now and I really appreciate it. One of the best things about Marc is how he adapts the teaching to suit his student. it's not the same for all and that is really helpful to encourage every pupil. I would highly recommend Marc because he's fun, relaxed and good at what he does. Thanks

Excellent service offered by Williams Driving School. Dave was superb in helping me pass my driving test with relatively no set backs. As a coach myself, I really appreciated Dave’s approach to learning and teaching. He is clearly a very experienced instructor with a firm grasp of how pupils should be taught. Dave’s understanding of how people learn has clearly been underpinned by research and study into this subject. As the head of the company, you can only trust that this approach has been instilled in all who work under him. Thank you for the experience Dave and Williams Driving School, I couldn’t recommend you more to other potential students. Sonny

Highway Driver Training Driving School

Park Hill Road, Torquay TQ1 2AL, UK – 0800 040 7892

Passed first time, david makes you feel so comfortable driving and helps with any mistakes, I've always been a nervous learner and dave made me overcome them without me even realising. He had all the confidence in me passing where as i didn't and i done it!! Highly recommend for a driving instuctor. Will miss our weekly catch up and lessons.

From my very first driving lesson until my successful pass today, I've been with Highway Driver Training. I was impressed from the start by David's patience and methods. He explains things clearly, breaks down the manoeuvres into understandable chunks and, if you make a mistake, will tell you how to rectify it. If you want a reliable instructor who is motivated to help you succeed, I recommend Highway Driver Training (very highly). I wouldn't go anywhere else and I intend to go back for some motorway lessons now I've passed!

1st Gear Driving School

18 Grenadine Cl, Torquay TQ2 7GN, UK – 01803 310141

When I first started looking into driving lessons, I walked straight to NA DVLA test center 'cause it was only round then corner and asked about intensive courses. Dan, from first gear happened to be there, approached me and talked me through everything I needed to do. Although lessons did not continue with Dan due to complications, I don't think I could have asked for a better instructor starting out as a learner. Great character and definitely knows what he's doing. Cheers Dan

Brilliant! A large family means more than one driving lesson trauma for the brood so what a relief when we finally chose the right tuition and chose a driving School that demonstrated a friendly professionalism that surpassed all previous experiences. Well done First Gear... will definitely be sending the grand children your way soon!

Nigel is very knowledgeable and very fair.

Nigel was always courteous and spent time explaining the problems. I highly recommend Torquay Transmissions for your gearbox needs. I see comments about it being hard to get to but, just because it isn't where you expect, doesn't make it difficult. The garage is very well equipped and we found and got to it with no difficulty.

Well recommend. Short notice I called and within 3 days my van was fixed with an gearbox rebuilt. Thanks Torquay Transmission

We broke down with a fan belt issue on a Friday night and were recovered to our hotel in Paignton. Next day we bought a new fanbelt but asked Torbay Mobile Mechanics to fit it for us. They came that evening but on further inspection, it turned out the water pump had gone too, so they sourced a new one for our fairly rare vehicle and fitted it on the Monday to get us back on the road. Brilliant service at a reasonable price

Connells Estate Agents in Torquay

115 Union St, Torquay TQ1 3DW, UK – 01803 213641

Fantastic service, our house sold in less than a week from signing up with Connells and before it even went live on their site. Very smooth process and very impressed with their professionalism and proactive approach. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to sell their property.

Had Simon door knock my house normally I don’t give people knocking my door any time! But I must say he was well worth my time, his manor and approach was great and given I had been on the market for 4 months with very little luck I decided to trust him. He marketed at the same price and What a breath of fresh air very proactive got us 4 viewings before it’s even on the internet and now believe we will sell. Would highly recommend Simon and his team!!

John Lake Estate Agents

The Old Town Hall, Manor Road, Torquay TQ1 3JS, UK – 01803 328899

Recently purchased through John Lake and can honestly say it was the best estate agency experience we have had in over 30 years of buying and selling. Paul was particularly good, always keeping us up to date and emailing/calling often out of hours. It was a tricky purchase with many legal hiccups, but Paul's persistence and humour were appreciated throughout. This is a company which understands customer service and goes way above and beyond the norm. Thank you to the whole team.

I have dealt with the John Lake Lettings Department for some time now and have only one word to describe them '"FLAWLESS". From management and negotiators, to admin and accounts, they have always gone beyond their duty to satisfy any requests or needs required from them. Their professional, courteous and friendly approach will endlessly be appreciated and recommended.

Fantastic work by the team at the Pension Drawdown company. I will happily recommend you to all of our friends and family.

Torbay & District Funeral Service

Wellswood House, 11 Babbacombe Rd, Torquay TQ1 3SB, UK – 01803 315005

My family and I could not recommend Torbay and District Funeral Services more highly. Their kind and sensitive manner with which they helped us through a very difficult time, was very much appreciated. Amanda, who guided us gently through the process, took the time to listen to our memories and helped us to decide on the perfect service for our Dad. She kept in regular contact throughout, to check that everything was just as we wanted. Amanda dealt with everything, from contacting the chaplain, to making arrangements for the wake, to making sure a CD was sent to the crematorium and that it played correctly, nothing was too much trouble. Sarah, who supported us on the day of the funeral couldn’t have been more lovely or professional, reassuring us all that we could get through this. The service itself was beautiful and we couldn’t be more grateful to Sarah and her team for the wonderful send off they arranged for a wonderful husband and Dad. Thank you so much

Faced with a sudden death in the family left us in the difficult position of having to organise a funeral service at short notice. Having read several reviews on line we decided to visit Torbay and District Funeral Service in Torquay. We met with Sarah who we immediately warmed to. She was compassionate, caring and took us through all the steps in the process enabling us to make difficult decisions during what is a very sad and stressful time. We were consulted at every point and were in close contact with Sarah throughout the whole process. She took all the worry and uncertainty away from us and lifted a great load off our shoulders. Her professionalism was outstanding. We were treated with the utmost respect and my late Step-Father was afforded every dignity one could imagine. He would have been happy to note every detail that was done for him. The day of the service was amazing and everything was done professionally but with a very personal feel. I would highly recommend this service, it was like having a good friend take over and deal with proceedings, the guidance and advice given was second to none. The whole team were very caring and took every step to ensure a first class service. Jan & Bill Meadows

Inspired Landscaping

Torqyay, Torquay TQ2 8DA, UK – 01803 325702

Professional service from start to finish. Inspired Landscaping provided a full breakdown of the quote for the job so I knew what each element was costing. Also, once the quote was accepted, I was given a payment plan to follow which lasted throughout the whole contract, I found this to be beneficial and a good way of spreading the cost. On the basis of the professionalism from the start (broken down written quote and a payment plan) I recommended Inspired Landscaping to my family and friends before the work had even started. The standard of the work was extremely high and we are more than satisfied with the finished result. I will continue to recommend Inspired Landscaping to my friends and family and would use them again should the need arise.

Inspired landscaping did a great job in our garden! Love our new picket fence, gate and planters! Very friendly and great at what they do!

I will always use Riviera Insurance in the future, feeling confident that I will be getting the best price possible but also being able to deal with staff over the phone or face to face makes the whole experience much more reassuring.

Over 100 pound cheaper than my existing van quote, friendly, personal and professional service. Fast to set up and paperwork arrived within a few days. Highly recommended .... so much easier than using a search website and entering all the details myself. Thanks riviera insurance!!

I was a little concerned that it would be ‘cheap and cheerful’, so when the work was finished in record time, I was astounded to see the level of professionalism. As my mum said, ‘ you won’t believe it, the hole has gone-I can’t see where it was!’ Highly recommended, I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company again.

Top guy! Left voicemail, was prompt on reply. Came round, prognosed the problem and dealt with it quickly. Cheap rate! Most integral plumber around. The rest are cowboys and have taken advantage! Needless to say, this plumbers number has been saved into my contacts.

South West Plumbing

The White House, Broomhill Way, Torquay TQ2 7QL, UK – 01803 615000

I was incredibly anxious to discover a leak in an old plastic feeder that was caused a soaked plasterboard ceiling and water to seep through the wall below. Fearing the worst I contacted the insurance company who advised contacting a local plumber - great, but where do you start? Hundreds of options to choose from and no idea who you can (or cannot) trust. Luckily I went for South West Plumbing - a decision based purely on the handful of positive reviews on Google. Glad to say I made a good choice - from the initial call to the completion of work I can only report a positive experience. Tom, who carried out the work, was polite, well mannered and very knowledgable. He was able to replace a faulty section of pipe and remedy the problem. All done and dusted in less than an hour, with the overall bill being far less than I had expected (less than some plumbers charge just for call out) - and no need to claim on insurance! Overall am very impressed (and mightily relieved) with my experience and would definitely use their services again.

Copy Print & Design

240 Union St, Torquay TQ2 5QS, UK – 01803 293354

Excellent service and value. I arrived with over 200 pages of documents to copy for immigration extension visa. 200 pages in 7 separate folders (single and double sided). Hayden couldn't have been more helpful. Some of the bank statements were printed on very thin paper and as such needed to be deeded through by hand. After helping me out and double checking everything, I was given the bill and it was very reasonable. A highly recommended place. P.S. Hayden, we got a yes. Thank you.

I cannot rate Copy Print & Design enough. They went above and beyond to help us out with some printing on Friday. We arrived from Bristol to run a bar at Grinagog festival but forgot our price lists. This guy was just closing to go on holiday for the weekend but ended up running late to help us out. On that note I would personally like to say a massive thank you. You were a true star 🙂

What a great professional removal company this is. Tony and his team of 3 guys were super efficient, very careful but also speedy, and couldn’t do any wrong in my eyes. On arrival at our new house, they then put all the boxes and furniture in all the rooms that were labelled, or, where I instructed them to, and my fussy ways did not phase them at all. All done with a smile too, well done boys, would definitely recommend this company.

Veterinary Surgeons

Silverton Veterinary Practice

86 Cadewell Lane, Torquay TQ2 7HP, UK – 01803 614619

First class service from start to finish.Derek the Harris hawks small operation & aftercare service was second to none & Richard & his team were fantastic.Thoroughly recommend Silvertown Vetinary practice to any falconers or birds of prey centres in and around Devon.

On moving to Torbay in 1988 one of my priorities was to find a good local vet. The Silverton practice was recommended to me and I have been taking my much loved pets to them ever since. Firstly to their Paignton branch then Torquay where you can always be sure of a welcoming smile and some good advice. Firstly from Sue who has the most amazing memory for us all and our pets. She is both very approachable and knowledgeable but more importantly incredibly kind and understanding as are the vets who I have had the good fortune to have take care of my animals over the years. Cath and Richard are both excellent veterinarians and have a way of putting both patients and owners at ease, whatever the situation. I have changed Doctors several times through the years but never vets. I would highly recommend the Silverton Practice to anyone and everyone who wants the very best for their loyal companions.

Greenbay Vets

Greenbay Veterinary Surgery, 34 Walnut Rd, Torquay TQ2 6HS, UK – 01803 606059

I had to change my veterinary surgeon due to them not doing local Dentistry. I decided to use Green Bay. Top class service and my dog is so much happier now she's had her bad teeth removed! She had her check and her up both in the same day. Would use them again and would definitely recommend.

We have had a level of care and service you don't find very often and will be forever thankful for the help that everyone at the Torquay branch has given us. Our Cat TJ turned diabetic and after 6 months we now find out his condition is cause by a brain tumour (operable thankfully). If not for the help, support, and the vets being thorough we would never have got to where we are now. We cannot thank them or recommend them enough.

Bay Vet Group - Torquay

96 Warbro Rd, Torquay TQ1 3RE, UK – 01803 314940

Whether it's been with cats, guinea pigs or gerbils they've always been so loving and caring towards my pets. Absolutely recommend and will continue to use for my new two kittens!!!

Happy with my cats operation, but wasn't happy they put my cat into a dirty cat box when I took him it was clean, an they put my cat into it after an operation, an the box was full of wee an poo, an that can cause an infection, so they need to go alil but more careful to be honest.

Booked equipment online for a Friday collection. It was also meant to come with a 30% online discount. When I arrived it wasn't available for collection, it was still in Newquay. So a wasted journey. Collected it on Monday, it worked fine and did the job. The team were pleasant and helpful though when it came to paying I was initially asked to pay the non-discounted price.

I have been hiring equipment from South West Hire and Sales for a few years now, I have always received excellent customer service from the guys at the Torquay branch. Prices are competitive and they are always very helpful.

Booked a skip late Tuesday and they delivered am the next day. Drivers and office staff very friendly and professional.

Don't have skips very often but would use these again and have told my friends and colleagues to use them. Great service Rainbow Skips. Keep up the great service!

We have had many skips from this company in the last 6 months and could not be happier with the service provided. Skips are delivered and collected promptly. Communication is great and when there have been unexpected delays we have been kept informed. Anj is always a pleasure to speak to and very professional...even when a few bits that shouldn't have gone in the skip did (sorry again). Would definitely recommend.

We were previously using another colourful skip company in Torbayskips. They were rude and un helpful on the phone. so they lost this one and all the future skips. Thanks and a great professional service with Pleasant staff
