Testimonials

"I have only known Dean, for a few months, but I can HIGHLY recommend his services.  He has built a large car parking area for me, which involved very close deadlines for a World War II Ceremony held on my property.  Also he has orchestrated several other projects, all of which were done in a very professional way, at a fair price.  Dean is a “Digger Maestro”, and knows his machines better than anyone I know.  He will discuss the project with you, and will provide you with a quote and timeline to do it.  There are never any surprises and his care and tidiness, in a traditionally messy business, is truly remarkable.  You will not be disappointed if you hire this company.  If you need to e-mail me for further details, I can be reached at steven.marsh@orange.fr. Thank you."  (Steven Marsh – Moulin des Rondelles, Cerisy la Foret)

 

 

"From the outset the initial site visit was punctual and thorough providing professional advice that would help reduce costs. The quotation was comprehensive and explanatory. Aggregates and concrete were sourced locally which again enabled cost savings. The machinery was delivered to site the day prior to work commencing. ‘Dean’ arrived on time daily despite travelling time. Work was carried out to a high standard sometimes beyond 1800hrs to allow stages to be completed. End of day routine always included tidying the site and layout preparation for the next day as well as explanation of work achieved. The estimated time lines were realistic and actually finished ahead of schedule. A full snagging inspection was carried out. Receipts and guarantees were promptly provided after payment as well as advice for after care. Overall a stress free experience, so very many thanks. Please feel free to forward my details to any future clients who require a testimonial." (Simon & Julie Williams - Williams Equine)

"Having received notice of the requirement for a new septic tank and filter bed following a soil survey, we were daunted having to find a builder to do the work. Dean arranged to meet us whilst we were in France, and following this, and with a copy of the survey, we promptly received a quote for the work which was by far the most transparent of the quotes we received. It was also the cheapest, but given the detail in the quote, this reassured me, having also met Dean. Unfortunately we were unable to be in France when the work commenced, but Dean began the work in some of the most atrocious weather, keeping us up to date on progress with photos, and e-mails. The work was finished on time and to a high standard, and was passed by the authorities with no problems and we were the proud owners of a working system. We were even pleasantly surprised that the bill was less than the quote as Dean had made sure some of the contingencies included which were not required were removed from the bill. As mentioned, the weather was very bad during the time the work was done, but once this cleared up, Dean returned to tidy things up, sending more photos to show the end result. When we finally managed to get back to France, we were pleased to see we had a working system, no evidence of all the disruption that was involved in installing the system, and all was in order. In summary, we would have no hesitation in getting Dean back when we have further building work to undertake, as he proved to be reliable, true to his word, honest, and ensured that everything was arranged to get the system installed and signed off all at an excellent price. In addition, we also received a note from our neighbours in France letting us know that everything had been completed and was looking good – praise indeed. We would recommend Dean to anyone looking for a reliable builder." (Chris and Janet Atkinson)

 


''We hired Dean, Elder Multiservice, to sort out our Fosse Septique and that was the best decision we’ve made since moving to France nine years ago. We cannot praise Dean’s work high enough and would not hesitate to recommend him. Dean was always very professional, from the initial site visit to the completion and his amazing care and neatness was a credit to him and a joy for us. The cost was very reasonable and all timescales were met/exceeded. The weather conditions were truly atrocious, whilst he was working for us, as winter was imminent, but throughout, his dedication and skill were phenomenal.

If you are looking for someone you can trust, who will do what he says he will, for the price quoted and in the timescales given, we could not recommend anyone better than Dean.'' (Jayne and Jim, Lastelle)

"Mr. Elder finished the work on time, working as many hours as needed to complete this. He worked non stop during his time here and most definitely to the original quote. His after care work was second to none. We feel he is not only very reasonable but also produces great results. We have no fears in recommending him for this type of work." (Barry and Debbie Morris)..

 

"Mr. Elder kept to his estimate and my time line programme. He left the site clean and tidy on completion, and we have had no problems with his work. We were very pleased also that his work passed first time the stringent  quality inspection of the local authority surveyer. We would  have no hesitation in using his firm again." (Roy Turner)
