We are not afraid nor embarrassed (ok maybe a little) to confess to going through a Gas Pipe last week whilst fitting a Driveway in Fife. The root of a tree we were removing was 15ft in length and when we removed the stump the root had grew AROUND the gas pipe and bang!
Pipe sealed, street cordoned off and British Gas emergency called, Fire brigade on standby
Fixed and safe within the hour.
We are a registered fully insured company, these things happen and British Gas were extremely helpful, had this not been a registered, Limited fully insured company there would have been a far longer delay and huge costs to the client. our client didn’t have to pay a penny
Moral of the story is please please make sure whoever is doing your Driveway or Landscaping that they are a “Registered Legitimate Company” with experienced staff.
