“We use Ames for bird control, pest control and ad hoc waste removal and cleaning jobs at Electric Wharf, Coventry. We haven’t known of you for long, but have been very impressed with the level of customer service and value for money that Ames gives to its customers and you are now our ‘go to’ contractor for any issue where cleaning/clearing/removing is involved.”

Just a quick e-mail to acknowledge the excellent work that has been undertaken by Simon Harris and Marcin Papiernik. The 2 areas concerned have been scrupulously cleaned, obviously not a pleasant job but one which has been undertaken to a very high standard.

Its just how we were looking to bring up the communal gardens and I have had some good feedback from residents too. Can you pass on our thank you’s please. Kind Regards

Donna Ashmore, Senior Minor Works Officer, Viridian Housing, Birmingham, West Midlands, UK

AMES provide our pest control and bird control. AMES give us 12 monthly visits each year, this means that we don’t have emergency call outs as rodents are kept at bay. The bait boxes are checked every month and replenished. And so far in the four years I have worked here we have never had a problem with rodents.. AMES give a good quality of service. No job that AMES have undertaken on site has had to be rectified. All jobs are undertaken to a high standard, leaving customer satisfaction.

Lesley Wager, Facilities Manager, Dougland Support Services, One Stop Shopping Centre, Perry Barr, Birmingham, West Midlands

The works went well and your guy was professional, punctual and we would have no hesitation using your services in the future.

Thanks also for your quick turnaround with the documentation which allowed the works to proceed with very short notice.

We have been using Altek Midlands Environmental Services Ltd for 6 years. Ames have been professional, prompt and all their works have always been to an excellent standard.

Altek have provided solutions to proofing and preventing Pigeon activity on all phases of renovations.

I would recommend Altek Midlands Environmental Services Ltd for all aspects of Bird Work and Pest Control.

Afternoon Alan

Following completion of all your works I thought it was time I shared my opinions regarding your overall performance. Both the site team and myself have had several conversations and were all in agreement that the professional attitude shown by your operatives during their time on site was refreshing. Their safety performance once the paperwork had been put in place was excellent, their communication with the site team very good and general approach to all the works that they have undertaken has been first class.

Could you please pass on our thanks to the lads who have worked on site as they have been a credit to you and we look forward to doing more projects with you in the future.

Best Regards

S Lydall, Project Manager, Wates Living Space

Communication with the environmental teams is excellent and the supply of management information for the contract has been efficient.
