Client Testimonial

"In the whole scheme of things my blocked drains on a wet Saturday evening are inconsequential. However, when everything was backing up it wasn’t pleasant and after a number of phone calls I came across Subscan.  Anthony arrived at 10.30pm, assessed the problem in the pouring rain and had things sorted within the hour at a very fair price.  Thank you - I shall remember your excellent service and freely recommend you for any related job large or small.
