I would like to thank Nick for recently helping me with my business insurance cover with an introduction to an insurance broker.
While I may not have immediately saved money on the face value of my insurance, I now have a better level of coverage and saved compared to if I had upgraded with my previous provider.
Thank you Nick for the introduction and supporting my business.
All too quickly it seems the time recently came for me to change my car. As you know I do not
enjoy ‘all things’ car related, so having Court Farm Garage to rely on is a relief in itself.
I gave Grant a brief on what I need in a car and a budget.
Grant arranged for me to view and test drive 3 vehicles all of which met my brief and budget.
All the information he gave me was jargon free, clear and transparent.
I was given the privacy and freedom to take as much time as I needed to decide what I wanted to
do. Grant does not ‘do’ pressure selling. He is confident that his knowledge of the market enables
him to match my brief to a vehicle completely and he is correct.
In return, I am confident in purchasing a car from Grant – I know he is looking to build and
maintain a relationship with me. I get the benefit of his experience and knowledge and he gets
my continued support and business. It’s a win/win for me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend
both Grant and Court Farm Garage.
Very many thanks Grant
The new Data Protection Regulations introduced in May meant that I had to change the diary app I was using. I was disappointed because I had a lovely system set up whereby I could email clients a link to my diary and they could select their own date and time slow, reducing the need which sometimes arose to try and co-ordinate thee or even four people’s diaries by way of emails or text messages — a truly tortuous process. It also sent automatic reminders meaning I experienced far fewer "no shows" than in the past.
I am an Office for Business user and absolutely love the face that the data is stored in the UK, fully encrypted while and transit and being store, and I can log into my client’s files using my data or iPad wherever I am — in their home during a meeting, in my car with a spare half hour to kill, or sitting the Dentist’s waiting room (she’s always running late!). It has revolutionised the efficiency of my business.
I discovered it was possible to set up a similar diary booking system within Office 365 to the one I had been using via the Microsoft Bookings app. Unfortunately, as with most software written by Microsoft it proved to be less than simple to get up and running. I consider myself intelligent and perfectly capable of finding pretty much any information I need via internet searches, but I had reached the end of my tether and was wasting more time than was sensible trying to get this working myself.
"John to the Rescue" - he logged into my machine remotely, changed a few settings, and half an hour later I was up and running with my new diary booking system. It really couldn’t have been simpler. Next time, I won’t waiting until I am ready to throw my machine out of the window — I will simply call John at Westway IT and let all the stress ebb away!
Very many thanks to John of Westway IT. He has ensured we are GDPR compliant, as safe as we can be from viruses and hackers, all our staff are able to work on everything they need to across all our machines and devices. Our hardware is sufficient for our needs and didn't cost the earth. It was all set up for us and ready to go. I didn't need to spend days downloading, uploading, loading software etc etc.
When we need help he responds absolutely immediately within minutes! He doesn't make us feel stupid or we are a nuisance. He doesn't befuddle us with jargon and gets the job done and any problems sorted.
I am confident that he is looking after us and enables me to concentrate on making a living rather than spending hours trawling through the internet looking for answers. He provides several solutions to problems and then whittles those down to the solution which will suit our systems, environment and budget.
I would recommend John and Westway IT. He knows his craft and we are now working in a much more streamlined, efficient and definitely speedier way. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and then wonder why you haven't done it before (but I didn't know John then!). But above all else John and Westway IT give me enormous peace of mind.
Thank you John.
I have had a recent flare up of a ‘policeman’s heal’ which is known by a much longer latin name I can’t pronounce…. However, it meant that it was terribly painful to put my foot to the floor after I had been resting, so first thing in the morning, or if I had been at my desk a long time.
I went over to see Caeredwen at Magic Hands Bowen Therapy to see if should could help. After filling out a long questionnaire about aches, pains and injuries (which made me sound like an ailing pensioner) Caeredwen began the treatment.
It was gentle and relaxing and the movements unusual but felt beneficial. After the treatment I felt rather buzzy - rather like I had a ready brek glow. I went home and slept fantastically. The following morning I woke refreshed, in no pain and that continued well into the following week.
All the minor naggy aches and pains seem to have gone and the pain in my heal had completely disappeared, which meant I was walking stronger and straighter.
I have had my second treatment and honestly feel better than I have for some time. It is remarkable that such a gently treatment can have such profound effects and I strongly recommend Caeredwen to anyone trouble by aches and pains, large and small.
Thank you for making me feel normal again!
I am writing this testimonial to say a huge thank you to Drop the Mop and their fantastic cleaners. Tracey is truly excellent and has achieved the impossible - I actually like being in my house! In the couple of hours she is here, she cleans so thoroughly and well that my rooms all looks amazing, all spiders and woodlice are banished from the stairs and everything smells and feels clean.
This is no mean achievement as this is an old, and a bit crappy, house, full of nooks and crannies for bugs to live in, not to mention we have a messy toddler and a messy teenager, a cat and a dog that continually seem to be shedding and we normally have several DIY projects on the go at once.
I don’t know how she does it - I suspect magic is involved - but the results are fantastic. I would strongly recommend that everyone gets a ‘drop the mop cleaning fairy’ so that they will love their homes again too.
Jacqui and Mo from ilateral have helped me take my business to he next level with a bespoke backend app doo dah thingy that enables me to produce asbestos survey reports quicker, more professionally and therefore cheaper than I have been able to do before.
Even though they are proper IT geeks they have a great appreciation for other small and medium size businesses needs and work hard to produce sensible solutions to their needs.
I would not hesitate to recommend the services of ilateral - every business needs an app doo dah!
