Able to reach high standards

Posted 27th October 2023

Your central heating boiler may be on the blink, a dripping tap is driving you to distraction or you need a new bathroom suite or gas safety check. At times like this you need a professional service from a qualified gas engineer or plumber.

Able has built its reputation on delivering on its promises.

The Milton Keynes based enterprise was set up in 2008 by senior engineer Matt Holtom. Since then, it has grown steadily setting high standards across a wide range of services from servicing boilers to fitting a wet room or tracking down a leak. Its client list includes some of the leading estate agents in Milton Keynes.

Matt said: “Like us, estate agents want to give the best service. We will not compromise on quality to save costs or cut corners. We believe all our customers from homeowners to businesses deserve the very best service.

“We understand how stressful it can be when there is a central heating breakdown so clients need to feel confident that they can put their trust in us. Everyone’s budgets are under pressure so even if the plumbing work is planned the customer still wants to know they are getting good value with no nasty surprises when they come to pay the bill.”

The friendly team of qualified gas engineers, who have years of expertise in domestic and commercial heating and plumbing, can undertake a wide range of services.

The costs of an extensive range of services are listed on the company’s website with a clear explanation. This includes gas safety and boiler checks, the annual service of a gas, oil or LPG boiler and the hourly rate for a plumber or domestic gas, Oftec oil or LPG engineer. Other services include commercial servicing and gas safety certificates. Warranties of up to 18 years are available on gas boilers.

Matt said: “We’re not the cheapest – that’s intentional. We offer a quality service, but we believe in being transparent about our services. We have carefully selected all the items we carry on our vans with the aim of getting the job fixed as quickly as possible.
“Sometimes there are unforeseen issues, but we talk through the options with customers.”

Behind the transformation of every kitchen or bathroom is a plumber who knows where to not only lay the pipes but can then fit the bathroom suite, sink or range cooker.

Customers can browse through catalogues from suppliers and then leave the rest to the experienced team at Able.
Achieve the maximum comfort in your home with heated towel rails, stylish radiators or even underfloor heating. The experienced team have a ‘boot off at the door’ policy and will make sure they tidy up after themselves.

“It makes all the difference to customers,” said Matt. “We respect everyone’s space.”
