"I was very impressed with this first class service. [Expert] is very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. He is also reliable and does what he says he is going to do. The survey was very detailed and well-presented, firstly by email then quickly followed by a hard copy. Highly recommended".S Fachiri3.) "[Expert] recently surveyed a substantial Victorian house I am buying. I strongly recommend him to other purchasers of houses in the area".4.) "[Expert] was most helpful and informative before, during and after the survey. His survey was thorough - even going to the extent of unblocking some drains so that he could provide entry from his drain survey camera. He was not able to finish all the work in one day so he came back to finish it on the next day without any extra charge".5.) "The main conclusions were telephoned to me the day he finished. The typed report extending to 39 pages (as well as a video of the drains) plus 3 large appendices were with me in 3 working days".6.) "[Expert] then answered many questions from me and helped me obtain quotations to have remedial work done. Also [the company's] support staff are efficient and helpful".7.) "In short [Expert's company] offers a Rolls Royce service at Ford prices".D Stone8.) "I've seen a lot of building surveys in my time and this one was by far the best I have ever seen, thank you".Howard W9.) "Reallymoving - very useful to have instant online comparisons, thank you [Expert] - very quick to respond to original request for survey and has since been very helpful, informative and supportive with my subsequent queries. Survey undertaken within same week, verbal feedback that day, online report delivered quickly and hardcopy soon thereafter. Excellent".Linda10.)

"Would recommend the company. 5/5 Stars for qaulity service and value for money".Mr Humphreys
  • 1.) "[Expert] surveyed two houses for us in Cornwall. One needed substantial repairs, but with [Expert's] report in hand we decided to bite the bullet and were able to negotiate an appropriate reduction in price. The other had damp and we decided not to proceed. [Expert] was very helpful, met us after the survey and showed us all the things he had found. He discussed both houses with us at some length, which helped us to decide which house to buy. His prices are very competitive. I would have no hesitation in using him again and am delighted to recommend his service to anyone needing a surveyor in Cornwall. Thank you to ReallyMoving for helping us to find him".Hilary2.) "I found your service and [Expert's company] really helpful. "Thank you."Mrs Wilson3.) "I used [Expert's company] who responded promptly and were very helpful. I would recommend both the service you offer on the site and [Expert]."Jenni4.) "Just a quick line to say many, many thanks for the survey report on Olde Hollow. Sam and I were both very impressed with the report and the way that you conduct business generally...as I'm sure you're well aware, this house buying game can at times get pretty stressful! Your efforts however have eased the stress levels for us both considerably.5.) "Very professional service given. Personal approach and excellent communications. I'd be happy to use this company again and would readily recommend it to others".Best Meadow6.) "This is just a brief note to thank you for a very efficient and professional job regarding the survey carried out on my behalf. I also very much appreciate the prompt verbal synopsis and your efforts in delivering the full and comprehensive report within 2 days of carrying out the survey".7.) "Although I initially thought that a less detailed report would suffice as we are cash buyers, I now realise that this was the best money ever spent even if we do not proceed with the purchase, bearing in mind the significant cost of remedial work".8.) "Should we need to consider buying another house in Cornwall, I would have no hesitation in asking you to carry out the survey and will be pleased to recommend you to anyone looking for a fast, efficient, friendly and professional service in Devon and Cornwall. I am more than happy for you to place this letter in your 'testimonials' section of your website."Bruce 9.) "Great service that made finding a good surveyor a straight-forward process. It also saved me over £150 on what a local firm quoted. Thank you!"Miya10.) "Very satisfied, and it was useful to have a specialsed damp survey done at the same time."Peter11.)
