“Excellent professional service”

I used Wayne at Francis Fire Protection Services Limited for the first time and I will certainly be using him again in the future, excellent professional service, superb equipment, complete and in depth servicing of our existing equipment and he didn’t try to sell us anything we didn’t need.

“A very pleasant experience working with Wayne”

Wayne was very quick replying to my request for service. He carried out an in-depth survey of our requirements. He came on time as arranged and he is a very very knowledgeable professional person. He had all the equipment we needed with him and went into great detail about the extinguishers and how to use them and he then validated them. He recommended an assembly point and alarm bell for the caravan site. He has already arranged a date for next year to carry out an annual check. The price I paid was very reasonable considering the effort he went to. It was a very pleasant experience working with Wayne and I can unreservedly recommend his company to anyone who needs fire protection services. I will personally recommend him to people I know.

“Very efficient, informative and helpful!”

Very efficient, informative and helpful. I’m so glad I changed over to use him, so if you need someone I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wayne to you. Happy to come when suits you and he’s now got my salon all checked over, extinguishers serviced and changed where needed and even gave me a one to one demo on how to use the ones we were replacing as I hadn’t been shown how to use them just told when they were first installed. Happily confident and pleased my salon is all compliant with everything I need not just the basics. Thank you Wayne, see you next time.

Wayne was so helpful from the minute I got in touch with him. I wasn’t sure exactly what I needed for my business so I told him my situation and he was open and honest about where to go from there.

“Thorough and friendly”

I chose Wayne’s fire protection company as I usually find I get better, more personal service from local suppliers – and Wayne did not disappoint. As an ex-fireman, he certainly knows his way around the fire safety rules and equipment. He is thorough, friendly, good at explaining regulations and clarifying what needs to be done on a regular basis to stay safe. The assessment of our office premises, and fitting of the extinguishers was all done neatly and speedily in a couple of hours this morning. He even painted over the gap on the wall where the old fire label had been pasted. Thank you Wayne and Good Luck.

“If you change one contractor this year, make sure it’s to FFP”

Wayne looks after our fire extinguishers at our school in Macclesfield, Beech Hall School. If our others schools were not all south of Coventry, Wayne would have a group contract with us & maintain all, such is his level of service.

Wayne offers so much more than just maintaining our fire extinguishers; his in-depth knowledge of all things fire from the many years spent in the Cheshire Fire Service is 2nd to none. Hugely approachable, friendly & a bible of all things fire.

We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Francis Fire Protection. If you change one contractor this year, make sure it’s to FFP.

We requested the attendance of Francis Fire Protection Services to assess our existing portable fire extinguisher(s) provision in our production and warehouse facility. They were prompt, robust, efficient in their service delivery and expert advice. Francis Fire Protection Services now look after our head office, operations, and state-of-the-art stores, reassuring us at all times of fire extinguisher compliance. Great fast service.
