Louise Hill MPAGB December 2017

"I had the need to call an Electrician out urgently and I called Barrie Beard who arranged for an electrician to come over the same day and make safe the problem for me. I have to commend the efficiency and professionalism of this company for the prompt service I received. The "Electrician"- James O'Brien was extremely courteous and helpful in resolving the problem and I would certainly not have any hesitation in using and recommending this company in the future."

Ms Challand – Aug 2017

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for David's (David Walker, BB Electrician) professionalism and conscientious approach to sorting out our heating control problem. Had I known that you had someone who could sort a heating engineering issue, I can assure you that I would have been in touch long before now. Over the past 18 months, two plumbers and a so-called heating engineer have been to the house (on friend's recommendations) poked a few buttons and looked at the pump and then bailed out leaving a bill. All without any sign of having remedied heating that wouldn't come on in the winter and that wouldn't turn off in the summer. The last plumber came last month, pulled up the carpets and looked at the pump but also left a bill without a solution. That was when I contacted you after driving past and seeing the domestic work sign. David was here for the best part of three hours and was absolutely determined to get to the bottom of the missing thermostat problem despite my not being able to find any ancient instruction booklets. I have no idea whether or not the system will stir into life when the winter comes but the relief of not having to endure tropical temperatures and terrifying gas bills is indescribable. I really can't thank David enough for his diligence. He is a great credit to your company and went out of his way to explain what he was doing and why. It's wonderful to know that I have finally found a company (and on the same road!) I really feel I can trust. I will certainly be recommending you to friends in the future."  


Mrs Alison – July 2017

“Mrs Alison, just rang to complement what a wonderful job Dave Walker (BB Electrician) has just done. She also thanked us for sending such a lovely person (which she considers a rarity these days)”. Call taken by Tina Porter 13.7.17


Sandy Matheson – June 2017

When it is virtually the norm to complain, let me try and reverse that trend.!! We contacted you today with a problem we were experiencing and spoke to Dan (Cattell, Small Works Contract Manager). He was most helpful and understanding and tried very hard to solve our issue. Soon afterwards , he phoned and said that Rob (Davenport, BB Electrician), who was working at the Worcester Hospital, would contact us. Sure enough, he did and was most obliging, saying he'd be at our place at around 3pm. When he arrived, he was very courteous and helpful and soon had the problem sorted out. A very big thanks to both, brilliant ambassadors for your company. Thanks very very much. Sandy Matheson


Mr Foster – May 2017

A note of thanks ~ I've recently been searching for replacement strip bulbs for some under cabinet lights I have which was proving very difficult with "other" suppliers saying they were obsolete or very odd sizes and quoting up to £70 to replace. I popped in to your store and was shown excellent service by your sales staff  member Stuart, who found me the exact LED replacement unit and much cheaper than other suppliers ~ Many Thanks. Dave Foster  


Mr Drinkwater – Droitwich – November 2016

I would just like to thank you and your team for your help once again.  I am very happy with everything that you did for me and will certainly have no problem in recommending Barrie Beard Ltd to any of my friends.


Mr Southwell – Droitwich – November 2016

Your electrician (Mark Warman) had a very high standard of work, he kept me informed throughout and is a great advocate for your business, as well as being an excellent mentor to Dan Parkes (BB Apprentice) who had fantastic customer service skills.  They both spoke highly of your business, and take great pride in their work.  If the rest of your employees are like these two gentlemen then you can look forward to the future with confidence.


Mr Moseley – Rubery, Birmingham – October 2016

I wanted to say how superb you're service and quality has been. The electrician (James O'Brien BB Electrician) is first class and very professional. I'm so glad I went with you guys and it's worth every penny! I can relax knowing it's been done properly. Thanks again.


Mr and Mrs J – Droitwich – February 2016

Last week your company worked to install heating, lighting, hot water and other jobs.  From the survey, quotation and then installation the whole process was quick, tidy and totally professional.  Can you give Rob (Davenport - BB Domestic Electrician) a huge 'thumbs up', he was superb.


Mr and Mrs M – Bromsgrove – November 2015

Please pass on our thanks to your electrician (Dave Mould) who carried out this work to the highest standard and with care and consideration.  We were very pleased with everything he did.


Mr W – Wychbold, Worcestershire – May 2015

I am writing to you to thank you for sending your electrician into my home to install an electrical supply to my log cabin.  Richard (Millett- BB electrician) was very courteous, extremely efficient and had  excellent workmanship.  He started work early and finished late.  He had a smile on his face all day.  It is so refreshing to find such a pleasant and hard working person.  How lucky you are to have such an employee. Also thank you Dan (Neilson - BB Contracts Manager) for organising this job for me.


Ms R and Mr R – Droitwich – April 2015

It has been a pleasure to deal with your company and we are very happy with the standard of work carried out by your electrican. He dealt with all the problems we had, was efficient, hard-working and treated our home with care.

We shall certainly use your firm for any future electrical work and we would be pleased to recommend you.

Ms B – Belbroughton, Bromsgrove – (Email received)

Just wanted to say 'Thank you' for the work that Darren (Bore, BB Electrician) did on our home last week. We are really pleased, if you could pass out thanks to Darren please.


Mrs B – Bromsgrove – (Telephone call taken by Tina Porter)

Mrs B telephoned to say how pleased she was with the service of Barrie Beard Ltd. Daniel Neilson (BB Contracts Manager) was very professional and responded quickly to the original enquiry. She also wanted to say how pleased she was with the work that Gareth (Parkes, BB Electrican) did in installing her LED down lights.


Mr R – Barnt Green 19/08/13

Of the three companies we approached for schemes and quotations, Daniel Neilson was the most willing to fit in with our needs and was alone in offering the system we finally chose. Darren the electrician who carried out the work was excellent in every respect. Like Daniel , keen to fit the installation to our needs, hardworking and skillful. A fine advertisement for your company.


Mrs S – Bewdley – 17/07/13

Please thank Graham (Knowles) for the way he dealt with my mother, who has Alzheimers. I knew that she would be safe with Barrie Beard's staff. He treated her with the respect I hope we will all get at 85. And I hope she will now be able to remian in her home a little longer. Many thanks.


Ms S – Bromsgrove – Regarding Cooker Hood Installation – 28/03/13

Just wanted to say how happy I am with the finished job and that the electrician (Gareth Parkes) who did the job for me did a great job with little mess.The whole process of the quote, booking and completion was an excellent service. I'd definitely recommend and use you again if I need any more work carried out.


Mr O’Donavon – Hartlebury Shooting (telephone call taken by Jacqui Emery) 28/03/13

Mr O'Donavon telephoned and requested that a message to be passed to Barrie Beard directors, to say that, Stuart Pearman on our sales counter was so helpful today.


Mr C – Fernill Heath 04/03/13 – PV Solar Panels

You recently installed PV panels at my home and I wish to express my thanks and appreciation for both the service provided and quality of workmanship. I would first like to thank Director Wayne Bedford for this extensive advice and guidanced that led to the decision to go ahead. I would also like to thank the onsite workers who came to my home to carry out the work. They were efficient and quick in their work but at the same time polite, considerate and clean workers. I was consulted at each step as to location of the panels and sighting of the various pieces of equipment. When work was finished they vacuumed up and left the house tidy. Finally I wish to commend Dan Neilson who project managed the job from start to finish. The whole process ran smoothly with Dan keeping me abreast of progress and milestones throughout. I am currently watching the meter as it counts off the units generated and consider this one of the best investments I have made.


Ms A – Bromsgrove 27/11/12

Just to say a big thank you to Rob (Davenport) who came out to fix our shower last Friday. He was extremely professional and efficient, my husband is disabled and Rob went out of his way to make the job as unobtrustive as possible. In fact from my first initial telephone contact to Barrie Beard Ltd I was very impressed with the overall service. I shall definately call you again if and when I need!


Mr D – Leominster – 31/10/12

I am writing with reference to the outstanding electrical installation carried out by your company. From the first meeting with Wayne (Bedford - BB Director), who was a winning combination of warmth and efficiency throughout, the whole project ran smoothly and was completed to an exceptionally high standard at the most competitive price. Having spent a working lifetime in the building industry myself, I can genuinely say that i have never come across a more hardworking, flexible and knowledgeable practitioner than Chas (Brown, BB Electrician) the young electrician you sent to lead the installation on site. Your employees were always punctual and reliable throughout the project, worked to our timescales without complaint, linked in unexpected hurdles with the minimum of disruption to us. Chas always went the extra mile for us too, bringing samples of materials with him to site and giving us helpful advice willingly. He was always a most instructive and pleasant leader. We are also grateful to him for giving us a very comprehensive overview of the installation on the final day of work prior to leaving, which proved enormously helpful. Whenever we needed to contact your offices nothing was ever too much trouble for Wayne who spent a great deal of time ensuring that our job was properly planned for prior to starting and that our needs were fully met throughout. We always felt extremely confident in him as a project manager and also found him a real pleasure to work with. What outstanding customer service! We have rarely found a company where we can say that every employee we met was polite, hardworking, willing, reliable and helpful. So it is with real pleasure that we can say in the case of Barrie Beard Ltd, this genuinely is the case. We have benefitted from a first class job at an extremely competitive prices. We will be delighted to recommend your outstanding company to our own colleagues, family and friends.


Mr N – Bromsgrove (telephone call taken by Rose Humphries) 12/09/12

Mr N would like to thank Barrie Beard Ltd for their prompt attention to the smoke alarms that were fitted by Rob (Davenport - BB Electrician). Mr N is very pleased with the alarms and service.


Ms. B – Worcestershire (telephone call taken by Fiona Steeter) 20/06/12

Ms.B brought in a lamp yesterday and advised that the very helpful gentleman on our counter fixed it for her, she also bought a couple of Bell light bulbs which she is very pleased with. She has been using energy saving bulbs for several years but has always found the light given to be very dim and cold, but these ones provide a bright light just like old bulbs did. She asked me to pass on her thanks and to say she was very impressed by the service and the bulbs.


Mr J – Barnt Green (email sent to Dan Neilson BB Contracts Manager) – Garden Lighting 31/05/12

Thanks for organising the work , it is the first time for a long time someone has actually done what they have said, a good job. You were the most expensive of my three quotes but who cares because it is as promised and no grief. The electrician(Darren Bore BB Electrician) who did the work was also very professional, I would recommend you without a doubt.


Mr A – Barnt Green (section of email sent to Warren Beard BB Director) 28/05/12

Since we have reached that stage, perhaps this is an appropriate time for me to record how pleased we were with Rob(Davenport, BB Electrician). We are not, of course, qualified to comment on his expertise, but he always made us feel totally reassured whenever anything technical needed discussing. In addition, we found him extremely pleasant, sensibly co-operative and pragmatic in presenting us with alternative ways of solving problems, very hard-working, and as tidy a workman as we have ever met. We didn't see a great deal of Gareth(Parkes BB Electrician) but, again, found him very pleasant, and I should also record that the work-experience guy Liam (Freckelton) was one of the most courteous young men we have ever met.


Mr W – Droitwich 17/4//12

Hello Dan (Neilson, BB Contracts Manager) Mark (Clamp, BB Electrician) has done an excellent job in completing the external garden lighting, with thanks.


Mr W – Bromsgrove 18/03/12

I would like to put on record my appreciation of the excellent serviced provided by the electrician who attended on 28th February. Nothing was too much trouble and he did not leave until he was satisfied all faults had been rectified. I'm sorry I don't have the gentleman's name (G.Parkes BB Electrician) but he was a great ambassador for your company and an exemplar for all aspiring young electricians. I would be greatful if you would pass on my thanks.


Ms P – Worcestershire 05/03/12

I would like to thank all and D.Neilson (BB Contracts Manager) for his advice and for dealing with the paperwork to NPower for me. Also thanks to the electrican (Darren Bore) who did such a neat job in the home going about the installation in a very workmanlike manner. (Relating to Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Installation)


Mr W – Birmingham – 17/02/12

Thanks for your invoice which I paid today plus completing the job efficiently, we’ll certainly use you again.


Mr & Mrs B – Worcestershire – 05/01/12

Dear Dan (Neilson – Contracts Manager) Re: Installation of Solar Panels We are really pleased with the work the team has done for us. The panels have been fitted very securely and it is a very neat and tidy job which a number of visitors have commented on.


Ms W – Belbroughton – 28/10/11

Dear Dan (Neilson - Contracts Manager) Just to say thanks for getting things sorted and for the superb work carried out by Graham & Gareth at our house.

Dear Dan (Neilson – Contracts Manager) I wanted to say thank you for your courteous manner and very reasonable quote for the electrical work at my property


Ms G – West Midlands

Meant to e-mail you 2 months ago when my dad needed a new bulb for his torch and no where sold them and the guy on your trade counter ordered 1 in for him, it only cost £1.50 but just would like to say thanks for him going to the trouble, he is a credit to your company. Many Thanks.


Mr B – Birmingham

Just a note to express my gratitude to you for all your support and assistance with the work at Portland Road, Graham (BB electrician) did an excellent Job. Your help is greatly appreciated.


Mrs B – Worcestershire

Thanks so much for your help yesterday. Managers at Somerfield in Pershore (and Regional Managers) were delighted to get full power supplied to the shop. Without your help, the engineer said we would have lost another half-day's trading by the time the fuse was obtained and fitted.


Mr P – Worcestershire County Council

A quick note to say thank you to all involved. This had been hastily rescheduled and I greatly appreciate everybody's efforts in turning this into a successful night's work.


Ms K – Alvechurch

Your engineer Rob (BB electrician) was very good and helpful about explaining what he was doing and why. Many thanks for your help.


Ms H – Kenneth Morris Business Specialists, Worcestershire

Just a note to thank you for sending an engineer out to us so quickly yesterday morning. Without your prompt help we would have suffered a lot more 'down time' than we did.


Mr R – Bromsgrove

Although rewiring a house like this is a considerable undertaking, I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the staff concerned for the care and consideration they showed. The work was executed with exemplary care and thoroughness, to the highest standards.


Mr & Mrs W – Harbourne, Birmingham

We would like to thank you for the prompt response to our request for the work. A special thank you should go to the young men who worked so hard for us.
