What our customers say

Mr Collumbell re-polished a table for my mother and to use her words, “this table didn’t look as good as this, even when I bought it 30 years ago. Thank-you Mr Collumbell for a lovely Job.

Excellent – Lifesaver

Only had a sideboard for a year and a candle burnt a hole through the top of it. We were gutted and thought it was going to have to be thrown away but this company took it away for several weeks and when it was returned you could not see the damage. I would recommend this company without hesitation.


Thank you so much for doing such a splendid job in re-polishing my mothers old table. I am really thrilled with the results.
