  • With regards to other companies, you are the best company by far – not only are you quick to compile your reports (which are in a easy to understand format and are great for members of staff who are not familiar with surveys, remediation and risk ratings), you are also the best priced. Due to your experience with historical objects and with the Science Museum collection, I feel comfortable with you handling the objects.

  • Thank you for the excellent training. I think it is the best training I have received while working in the Museum sector – I’d highly recommend it!
