What do our clients say?

Here are just some of the things that our clients say about Vale Fire Safety:


I cannot speak highly enough of the service and dedication that this company offer. They went out of their way to resolve an issue that I had with a specialised fire extinguisher of mine and did not stop until they had successfully fixed the problem. A rare level of service in this modern world of ours. Well done guys !!


Easy to book for appointments. Always excellent advice and service for fire safety risk assessments and fire safety equipment inspection at our listed holiday let. Paperwork sent promptly. Have used for the last 3 years and will continue to use in future!


We have been using John and Paula at Vale Fire Safety for 9 years now to maintain our fire alarm system and fire extinguishers at our bed & breakfast and have found them absolutely brilliant. John is always cheerful and friendly and very efficient in going about his work. He is also very up to date with fire regulations and always answered any questions or concerns that we had. We would have no hesitation in recommending Vale Fire Safety.


As a first time landlord, I was reliant on good advice. Vale Fire Safety was recommended and I can see why. Their initial fire assessment was very thorough and was summarised with 12 key steps that I could easily grasp and action, and their subsequent assessment appeared equally through and confirmed that my understanding of what they recommended be done was correct. I have no hesitation in recommending Vale Fire Safety.


Excellent service from a local company who always send us a timely reminder when service is due and they are able to be extremely flexible in arranging a convenient time to attend our village hall. Highly recommended.


John gave a talk to North Dorset Business Group and I was impressed with his knowledge of fire safety regulations. He also made it easy to understand


I have used Vale Fire safety for several years now and have always found them very easy to deal with, reliable and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone needing them. 10/10!


I have used Vale Fire for many years now for my various business premises and have always found them to be extremely professional, helpful, friendly and cost effective. Their considered approach ensures a property is compliant and safe whilst being mindful of the challenges that age and possible listed property restrictions an older property invariably has.


I have been using the services of Vale fire Safety for over a decade. They do the bi-annual services and safety checks of my two properties, one in London and the other in Weymouth, which of itself is unusual and shows the flexibility of this company.

I have always found them to be prompt at doing repairs and efficient at all they do. Furthermore, this family firm is always friendly and willing to go out of their way to help. I can not recommend them highly enough.


Vale Fire Safety are a really friendly, reliable and efficient company. Always just a phone call away and are extremely knowledgeable! Would highly recommend.
