GREAT Service

Great service literally with a smile.
Lee arrived as arranged, found the problem and sorted out our washing machine at a very reasonable price. It felt like being helped by a friend. Will certainly be our 1st port of call for any future problems that may arrise on any of our apliances in the future. Thank you 181 Respin

Washing machines and more

Cannot fault these guys at all. I first used them as a tenant when my old machine broke so when I bought my first house and my machine was playing up they were the first people I called. They fixed my machine then, and have just replaced it with my new one despite it being a frankly Herculean task with very tight corners, plumbing and cables behind cabinets, and steep stairs leading down to the property. They also came and sorted out my boiler when it stopped delivering hot water. All at exceptionally reasonable prices. Can’t recommend them highly enough.

Thankyou very much for your kind review.

Boiler fitting

I Chris fitted my a new boiler back in March. He was very helpful and gave us lots of good advice to help us make the decision to replace the boiler and which was the best option. The fitting was done quickly and Chris made sure everything, not just the boiler, was in full working order before he left. He advise of the process for services every year and what to do if we think we have an issue. I cannot fault the service we received.

Great service from this Company they accommodated supplying and fitting at a property I own which was even arranged over the phone when I was not even in the County. I cannot recommend this Company highly enough. Cannot praise them highly enough!

Excellent service

My washing machine counterweight broke, and after having no luck direct from Whirlpool, I contacted Chris from 181 Respin asking for help. He responded to me within 30 minutes and was extremely helpful. They confirmed they had a weight for us and that we could collect as soon as we liked. The service was fast, friendly and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you so so much guys!

Excellent – highly recommend

I found these guys via Facebook reviews. Lee and Zack arrived early. Very polite and made me laugh – bonus! I knew what was wrong with the machine – the wire had come out of my bra! After taking the machine apart, Lee discovered it in the pipe behind the detergent drawer! Removed it without causing any further damage to my machine, luckily for me. Even cleaned up the marks caused by pulling out the washer. I’d highly recommend this firm, wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future. Prompt, courteous, knowledgable and guaranteed a laugh! Brilliant and thanks again 😁

Excellent service

Very efficient service. Bought a reconditioned washing machine at a good price with a 12month warranty. It was delivered, fitted and the old broken washing machine taken away within 2days of purchase. The sales person/engineer in the shop could not have been more helpful. Would thoroughly recommend.

 by Stuart Rowlands
Such excellent value!

I purchased a reconditioned Zanussi washing machine for just under £100 from 181 Respin over 7 years ago, and it has just broken down. It has washed at least twice a week, hassle free, for over 7 years, which is less than 14p per wash. The instillation of the new machine and the removal of the old was both free and efficiently done. Such value would be hard to surpass!

Replaced tumble dryer

My tumble dryer died on me so thought I’d try 181 Respin and get a second-hand one. Rang up, went straight to their showroom and they had just what I needed. It was delivered 3 days later on time and quickly put in position and the vented hose attached to outside. My old one was taken away, job done. A brilliant, friendly, efficient service I will definitely use you again, thank you.

Tumble dryer repair

Tumble dryer began making an awful knocking noise, had usd 181 years ago so instead of paying the actual manufacturer’s repair costs, thought I’d give 181 a call. Gentleman I spoke to said I think I know what the issue is and asked when I was available for them to call. Sorted out a time and day, arrived promptly and then an extremely quick diagnosis of the fault, which was what they’d thought it was. Damaged part removed and replaced very quickly. So now I don’t have mounds of wet laundry all over the house anymore. Thanks very much for your prompt and courteous service.

Whirlwind Service

Chris turned up to quote on time and early to do the job of fitting a new fire and servicing our existing fire. Found a small leak and rectified it. Checked all existing appliances were safe and efficient. Cleaned up after him (even the wife was impressed!). Great courteous and respectful customer service and left us happy and well satisfied. Thank you Chris for a very pleasant experience. Would recommend unreservedly.

Fast, friendly service from 181 Plumbing

I use this company to carry out the gas certs on the boilers in all of my rental properties. Always a friendly, fast service and very reliable. I would highly recommend this company.

 by Diane Beasley
Bathroom update

I had a very old bathroom in dire need of updating and having used 181 on numerous occasions previously, approached them for a quote. I explained what I wanted and within the space of a couple of weeks, the job was underway. The overall finish has far exceeded my expectations; every little detail has been completed to an extremely high, professional standard. The lads themselves were also immensely respectful and I was always asked if I was happy with the work that had been carried out before they moved on to the next thing. Can’t thank these lads enough – highly recommended.

 by Maria Mackenzie

Excellent very prompt and reliable service with Lee and Chris.
Very friendly, reasonable priced and would def recommend and use again.

 by J Westhead
New boiler

First time in more than a decade we’ve had a piping hot shower. Absolutely delighted with our new boiler, fitted by Chris and Matthew. It was a great price and Chris as always goes over and above to ensure you have everything you want. ( For instance he took extra time to tidy up some really old pipes and rearrange the plumbing for my washing machine so it was neater) Very happy to reccommend 181 Respin.

Brilliant Service

I used 181 RESPIN about 8 or 9yrs ago when they were based in Stoke. Their customer service was great then and I’ve Just bought another from them, now based next to The Range. I wasn’t too happy with the one I chose originally & they swapped it for another with no problem at all. I would highly recommend them, always helpful and always smiling!

Washing machine

I have used 1-8-1 for the first time and I cannot praise there service

I have used 1-8-1 for the first time and their service has been second to none from my initial phone call to their office. The engineer arrived on time ,quickly diagnosed the fault and carried out the repair efficiently with care and no inconvenience whatsoever. I shall certainly use this company in the future.

 by Ellie Hudson
Would not use any other company!

My recent washing machine was fitted and they took away my old one which I bought from them about 18 years ago (it had a 6 month guarantee!!), the company seems to have based its ethics is customer service, no bullshit, no fancy promises, just good genuine customer service and you can’t argue with that. I’m looking now to replace my gas oven with them!

Easy choice for Landlord

I use 181 to provide and maintain my washing machines & Dryers in 6 properties and also do all the Gas Safe and plumbing works.

Nothing is to much for them, and work is away done quickly and efficiently. They have also fitted new boilers when needed and again this is done neatly and promptly.

Boiler service

General service on central heating boiler. No problems with boiler but small gas leak found on gas main feeding boiler. Nightmare scenario of having to lift the whole kitchen floor. Alternative solution offered and completed by 118 respin. Great job

 by Claire Hampson
Range cooker repaired at my convenience.

The element blew in my range cooker just as we were moving house, Respin called that day to check the parts required and kept me informed of the order status, they arranged to fit the part after work so unlike most repair firms I did not have to book time off so they could come round. Excellent all round service and a nice bunch of chaps too.

 by Anne

Top Service Every Time

Theses guys are great. As a landlord I need people who can work with me to support my properties & tenants. They provide washing machines and dryers for all the houses and service the heating systems every year too.

Always reliable and keen to go the extra step whatever is needed. Faultless.

I had broken the door handle on my washing machine which made it unusable. I contacted 181 Respin, who responded promptly to an answerphone message (within 20 minutes!) The repair was booked and completed the following day within 20 minutes. What impressed me the most about the service provided by 181 Respin, is that unlike other repair services, they arrived on time and they give a clear competitive price estimate.

I would highly recommend 181 Respin for speed of repair, and will definitely be a return customer.

aeg washing machine

Many thanks to the guys at 181. I had a intermittent spin fault and as the machine was 12 yrs old I had thought it was time to pay £££ to get a new one. I phoned to see if they had any decent 2nd hand ones but they advised to check the motor brushes. The brushes were dead and the motor bearing rough so they found an old motor , put new brushes in and the machine is now working fine!

Many thanks

Washing machine – excellent customer service

I bought my second washing machine (the first of which lasted more than 5 years) from 181. they were prompt, courteous and efficient. I had recurring problems with the new machine, which they willingly dealt with each time and in the end were completely honest about its prognosis, offering me a different (and better) machine as a replacement. I would highly recommend their service to anyone.

 by Ken
Gas cooker

The grill on our gas cooker got faulty and ceased to work. We called 181 respin who were very helpful. They came when they said they would and fixed the cooker promptly efficiently and at a very reasonabe price. If I ever need anyhing else fixing I will certainly call 181 respin. I would definitely recommend them. Our cooker is working like new. Thank you 181 Respin

181 give new life to broken appliances!

When my dishwasher stopped working, I thought I would have to buy a new one. With a baby on the way, this was the last thing I wanted to spend money on. I called 181 Respin as a last resort just in case they could help.

Even though I live slightly outside of Plymouth, Chris came over immediately and was incredibly helpful. Chris took the appliance away for repair and quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem, before returning it good as new. The price was very reasonable too, and a huge saving over the cost of a new appliance!

To anyone with a broken appliance, I would definitely recommend giving 181 Respin a call.

The best washing machine I have ever bought

181 Respin were recommended to me by a friend who is an electrician. I bought a reconditioned washing machine from 181 Respin over 4 years ago. The machine was very reasonably priced, and I can honestly say I consider it to be the best washing machine I have ever bought. The staff at Respin were really helpful. The washing machine was delivered promptly, fitted and they took my old machine away, which was great. I would recommend 181 Respin to anybody who is looking for a washing machine of good quality at a reasonable price.

We are open for house calls as usual and are following the current Government guidelines. Our staff have all the necessary PPE to carry out any work as safely as possible.
