Orchard Workshops - Testimonials

Hi Darren

Thanks for fixing our gate .....
We were at the end of out tether with our problematic gate system so after a recommendation from a friend, we contacted Darren at Orchard Workshops. He was quickly able to remedy our problem, and after the installation of a new system, we have never looked back. Darren was a friendly and informative chap who clearly was an expert in his field - just what we had been looking for over the years. We couldn't rate him higher enough.

I have had good advice and good service from Orchard workshops over the past few years. After having bad experiences in the past with other fitters, it is pleasure to have gates that work reliably and someone who can fix them when things inevitably go wrong. Clare Kerry

Over the past five years, I have replaced three pairs of large gates around the perimeter of my house.
The originals were wooden traditional farm gates, painted cream with black iron work.......the wood had rotted on both the gates and posts and this is the reason that they failed.
Orchard Workshops produced three pairs of identical gates in steel box section along with matching steel gate posts and by the time these were painted and the decorative hinges added,they were indistinguishable from the originals.
At the same time as the replacements were delivered and fitted,Orchard Workshops installed new BFT brand underground motors to all gates which work from one convenient four station key fob.
In conclusion,this was a well worth while refurbishment and I certainly received a "Rolls Royce quality" job from Darren.

I was recommended to Darren by a few people as being the best in his field, i have had solid electric wooden gates for a while previously and had constant problems in the high winds. He was very professional throughout from quote to fitting and assured me that he could provide high quality gates that i wouldn't have to worry about again. He did just that, not only have i used them in high winds successfully for over 4 years now but they look stunning and elegant too, they have really created many admirers from my guests and i love them . Thanks Darren

Dear Mr Mason
I thought I would drop you a line to thank you for fabricating and installing our electrically operated steel gates.
These gates have exceeded our expectations in every way. These were made and installed exactly as arranged. The quality, robustness and bespoke nature of your workmanship are truly exceptional and for a reasonable price given your care and attention to detail, which reflects the many years of experience you have in the industry. We are delighted with the smooth operation of the BFT electric controllers.
I would not hesitate to recommend you and your products and indeed I already have done so.
Yours sincerely, Dr K J Watson
