GM - Building Contractor


Yes, I can confirm that the first order arrived Thursday last week, and the second order arrived Tuesday this week.

Many thanks for your help. Delighted with the service.

RB - Director, Engineering Co.

We've been dealing with First Solution since 2006 and have always found their services to be first class.

Their product and industry knowledge is good. If we have any queries they answer these immediately and they are always willing to “go that extra mile” to help. If they haven't got what we want they will source it for us or offer us an alternative. Materials have always arrived on time. The quality is very good and the service is second to none. They always follow up everything with a personal phone call, which is very unusual in this day and age but very welcome allowing time should we wish to have/gain further information or assistance.

We would not hesitate to recommend them. The contractors First Solution work with are also first class, clean, willing and knowledgeable.

Overall a first class package!
