From our offices, stores and shop near the Enterprise Park in Sleaford, our fleet of 15 company owned vehicles and directly employed qualified operatives serve Sleaford, Lincolnshire and beyond. Our vehicles are equipped with sophisticated tracking systems allowing us to direct the closest engineer to breakdowns as and when they happen. We have close working relationships with the best reputable local builders, architects, industry and commerce and both public and private employers. We strive to provide an excellent service to all our clients.
