Steve was so easy to keep in touch with, very convenient to communicate via email. However, we did have a few timing issues the report which should have been ready on the Friday wasn't ready until the Saturday late afternoon. Which as you can understand was only frustrating as the estate agents had closed by this time, which then delayed us until the Monday from discussing the issue's found in the report until the Monday. The report itself is very well laid out and is easy (as it can be) to read. Overall I rate the service as fairly good the only thing letting the score down being the delay in producing the report.

Both reallymoving.com and the surveyor are excellent. It saved me time shopping around on the market. Reallymoving does give very good choices and the one I went for is certainly an experienced surveyor who picked up a major problem of the property for our attention and the valuation he gave is much lower than the offer price which we thought was good enough for us. However it wasn't the case. So good that I got the surveyor done!

The website was easy to use. I was contacted by the surveyor within a few days and the survey was organised very quickly with great communication without the whole process

Rainfords provided us with a L3 building survey. We met Mr Dodgeson at the property at the end of the survey and where he talked us through the findings. The report produces was very comprehensive and contained photographs along with a detailed description of the findings. We received the report within a week. The service, quality and detail were exceptional. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Website really helped I'm a first time buyer and didn't have a clue were to look for a Surveyor. Fast efficient and gave me 3 surveyors that were suitable price won overall. Really good service and would recommend it. My only negative is the report has to be emailed and we were told we would have it in 3 to 4 days 9 days later we still don't have the report due to a technical fault with the internet connection at the surveyors office. This is a bit of a pain as we need to go back to vendor to negotiate price. The surveyor responds really quickly to any questions we have though hopefully will get report today.
