Genuine Testimonials from our plumbing customers in Penrith

Vinay Singh

“I have been using the team at Shipways for over a year and have had a really good overall experience. They have done work at my family home with Gas bottle plumbing (repairs) and also my hot water system this morning. I called this morning, I could tell they understood that I needed help urgently, he had somebody out as soon as possible and had the job knocked over before end of day and he didn’t use that opportunity to over charge me or try and charge for extra’s or call outs. In both cases they explained the purpose of the work they were carrying out and made it hassle free. I also find they have good communication within there own team which means you are getting first hand information. I will be using these guys indefinitely and recommending them as well.”

“We have now used the Shipways team on two occasions for a planned water heater replacement and general servicing initially. More recently for an emergency leak inspection and rectification. As the saying goes “You get what you pay for”. Dave and his team are efficient, responsive, professional and just down to earth. Well worth the value in the service they provide.”
