Recommendation- Motorcycle Tranporter

The new owner of my Classic Motorcycle, has asked if you could publish a “pat on the back’ for a job well done by Andrew Corker of Dachshund Transport?

Andrew collected it as promised on time, loaded it with care and we are all delighted that it arrived in Cambridge on time, exactly how it left Benajarafe.

Regards, John.


Recommendation- Reformed Kitchen
We have had our kitchen reformed by a gentleman who I can highly recommend.  After looking around at different workmen who can do such, we decided on Wills Fritz.  He made an excellent job of the kitchen and his price was very reasonable
