Windows in the Willows

Would the thought of gaining access to your site cause an installer to cry a river? Bergson & Eaton are up to the challenge!

Not every property has easy access. Some may have restricted parking, or be way off the beaten track; but don’t imagine for a moment that such issues will easily prevent Bergson & Eaton from bringing their high quality service to you.

Back in the late summer of 2016 we faced what was probably one of the most unusual access situations we have ever encountered. We were tasked with replacing the doors and windows for a commercial installation in Oxford, something that would not usually even raise an eyebrow in the Bergson & Eaton office. However, things were not as simple as they initially appeared – our only method of access would be what many would consider a recreational past-time, as Ratty would put it, “there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” Yes, that’s right; we had to transfer all the frames and glass across the Thames by boat! Whilst it is true that the natural environment for a window installer is his van and they can become disorientated, apprehensive and uncomfortable when separated from their comfort zone by the relentless flow of a wide and meandering river, our fitters were up to the challenge!

The job was completed to our usual high standards and customer satisfaction. In summary: Don’t take a punt on an installer who won’t take a punt for you.
