“The television programme ‘Hustle’ springs to mind. Don’t employ this man under any circumstances.
I am posting a review because Mr Higgs persists in trying to justify his unjustifiable charges. We did take him to court. We did not understand the process and lost because of the cleverly worded contract – see the rest of this review.
THERE IS NO NEED TO REMOVE BEES. National Trust properties leave them in situ for many years.
Don’t be taken in by the fact that he appears to be endorsed by the Prince’s Trust. We have queried this with the Trust. They seem to be uninterested in his questionable business practices.
We employed Mr Higgs in October 2017. The whole experience has been so traumatic and damaging to us, that we have not had the energy to post any reviews until now. Mr Higgs told us that we would run into endless problems if we left bees in our chimney. He gave us a very cleverly worded contract implying that the job would take much longer and be far more complex than it turned out to be. We were naïve enough to sign it. He charged £8000+ for a short survey, 3 hrs of his time and 6 hrs each for a technician and a labourer, a cherry picker for a day and minimal materials. He priced the job and what he thought he could get us to pay, not what it was really worth. I cannot think of any professional or tradesperson who charges or can justify this sort of money, regardless of their qualifications. KEEP YOUR PROBLEM, RATHER THAN EMPLOY BEEGONE, OR PGH PEST CONTROL. Find another company.”
