"Congratulations to Peabody and specifically the decorating service. I have just used them to decorate my hall and they have done a first-class job. The quality of work was excellent and every night they cleared up before leaving." FC, Islington

"The guys working here have been polite, punctual and totally trustworthy. They have carried out the work, above and beyond my wildest expectations, to a very high standard. At all times showing me and my home respect, always showing care when moving my furniture and belongings, and always returning everything carefully back to their original place at the end of each days' work." GK, Hammersmith

"Fantastic job, very professional and fast. His men were all easygoing and cooperative. I can certainly say it was well worth the price as included materials (Dulux... no rubbish) and if you have other tenants needing redecs this scheme is perfect. (I'm qualified to say this as worked for a major paint company 5 years!)" RW, Hackney

"Just wanted to say that I'm dead pleased with the room that has been decorated. I was really impressed with the finish and there's not a speck of paint on the carpet!" LA, Lambeth

"Many thanks to the handyman for arranging the decorating of my bathroom. I am delighted with the work which was done while I was away. With many thanks again." LB, Westminster
