Out-of-hours service for emergency repairs

If you need an emergency repair outside of normal working hours, you should contact the out-of-hours emergency repairs service on 01246 345041. Please only call the out-of-hours number for genuine emergencies as we are not able to deal with other repairs outside normal working hours.  

Our out-of-hours emergency service may attend and make safe only, unless the repair is minor, can be done safely in a short time, and the operative has the parts to complete the repair. If you have already reported a repair during normal working hours, please do not contact the out-of-hours service unless the situation has changed and you require emergency repair assistance. 

Emergency repairs during working hours can be reported through the repairs team.
