What our clients say

"We’d like to thank James and his team for their professional approach, seamless dealings with us and satisfactory outcome for this survey.
The Perito team has added value in ways we hadn’t expected. In that it has enabled us to understand the costs associated with the works which we have and will use to good effect in our future planning and strategy. We are a charity and as such have to manage our funds wisely. Perito’s practical approach and their ability to recommend changes that had little or no cost as well as the larger more costly changes, has meant we are able to improve our Branch within our limited budget. Highly recommend." - Samaritans Plymouth Branch
"As a business owner I am interested in making sure my facilities are as accessible to my clients as possible. I wasn't sure where to start but Perito have been great in making the complex law straightforward and they provided me with a nice report. I was pleased that a lot of the suggestions were really practical and easy to sort out by my regular maintenance team and cost almost nothing to implement. The Perito inspection team were very discreet and courteous. Thanks Perito!" - Ikandu Ltd
"Great job! Above all, we felt that Perito understood that we are a fast paced customer focused business. We really felt that they understood the commercial aspect of our business and the clear layout of the report was great because it has given us a way forward. A thumbs up from all of us here, thanks again." - Fishalicious
