Requesting a repair
Amey Defence Services will work with you to identify the specific details of the fault.
To ensure the repair can be completed efficiently, you will need to tell their advisor:
- your address and contact details;
- as much information as possible about the problem;
- if the fault is with a piece of equipment (such as a boiler or cooker), details of the type and model.
Making an appointment
You will be given a job reference number and you will be sent written notification of your appointment (by post or email if requested).
If you need to change the appointment, please contact Amey Defence Services via their website or Customer Service Centre before the appointment date, quote your job reference number and they will arrange a new date and time.
You or a member of your family (who must be over 16 years of age) will need to be at home at the time of the repair appointment. If the repair is on the outside of the property, e.g., roofing, fencing works etc., they may not need you to be available.
Please ask their advisor about this when making your appointment.
