They were fantastic. They had excellent customer service. They came over and actually talked me out of service rather than having me spend money. They said I didn't need the service. They were so ethical and so respectful.
I had a good experience with them. They were prompt and courteous, and they fixed only what needed to be fixed. I highly recommend them. They fixed a sump pump. The job didn't take that long at all—about an hour or hour and a half at the most. I'd give them an A.
It was fine. They knew what they were doing, and they were clean and nice. They did what they were supposed to do. They had to fix the toilet for me, and it was fine. They were excellent. An A is fine for them.
I had Little Tommy's here maybe about a week or two ago for my plumbing, and the plumber was very, very nice. He was very polite, wore the shoe covers, and did everything he was supposed to do. He said to call him if we needed him or if it didn't work out, and he'd come back. He was very nice and very gentlemanly. I've gone to them for forever—I've never had anybody else. I'd give them an A. They were excellent, and I had no complaints whatsoever. They can send him here anytime.
I think they did a good job, and I didn't have to wait a long time to make an appointment. I think they fixed several different things with my shower. Little Tommy's is an A.
They did the job adequately, and they came out quickly. They had to repair a clogged sewer line. They'd get an A.
They showed up on time and did what they said they would do, and they did a good job. They did some plumbing work in my basement when I had a backup. I would say Little Tommy's earned an A.
It was very good. They came in and knew what they were doing, and they fixed it and left. It's been good. They took care of a kitchen sink issue, I think. They were recommended to me by somebody. I'd give Little Tommy's Plumbing Shop an A.
They were very good. I liked the service, the way they behaved, and everything else. They fixed my plumbing. I'd say they're an A.
He's done plumbing for me on occasions in the past. He's a nice fellow. I never had any trouble when I called him in the past. He's always been accommodating—he made his house calls and did what had to be done. Whatever I needed to have fixed at the time, they fixed it. When they first opened up their business in the area, I decided to call them. I don't remember anything negative that I would say about them, so I would give them a positive review. I guess I was satisfied.
