Neil Roberts, Operations Director, Monster Play Systems
"The reason Monster Play has chosen to work with the Play Inspection Company for more than five years is due to the high level of service, professionalism and strong report writing they consistently offer. Even in the busier times they have offered a flexible 'can do' approach, whilst genuinely demonstrating a desire to influence improvements for the areas of play equipment compliance and play area management. I would not hesitate to recommend the Play Inspection Company for their inspection and training services."
Mike Parkinson, Senior Contract Manager, Continental Landscapes
"Continental Landscapes Ltd in Poole has employed the Play Inspection Company to carry out independent safety inspections of playgrounds in the Borough of Poole for the last four years.
On each occasion, the company has provided an excellent detailed report for each playground site, together with photographs of any items that require attention. This has assisted us to identify exactly what rectifications are necessary so that they can be carried out in good time.
Our client, Poole Borough Council, for whom we have a long term contract to carry out grounds maintenance and associated services, has been very satisfied with the reports provided.
We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of the Play Inspection Company to other organisations."
Mike Hall, Principle Parks, Playgrounds & Playing Fields Officer, Denbighsire County Council
"Over the years I have had dealings with the Play Inspection Company with regard to personal training, seminars, advice, post installation and annual inspections, I have always found them to be reliable and easy to work with (their prices aren't bad either). They have provided the comprehensive service I have been looking for."

Reports are clear, concise and easy to understand and the photographs help to ensure that any problems are easy to locate when remedial works need to be carried out. It is also especially useful to know that there is someone helpful at the end of the phone should we require any technical guidance or assistance, and that this is included as part of the service when working with the Play Inspection Company.

Steve Haycox, Parks & Green Spaces, Wolverhampton City Council

We have always found their work to be of a consistently high quality being provided in a timely manner whilst their recommendations have always been cost effective, reliable and realistic. We have formed a good working relationship with the staff there and always found them most helpful both with the regular annual work and short notice projects. We would have no reservations in using their services again."
Kristina Hinks, Director, Jupiter Play & Leisure Ltd
“The Play Inspection Company offer a very professional and friendly service. They really understand the play industry and the complexities that natural play sites often bring. We often design more complex schemes, and we like working with the Play Inspection company as they understand the ethos of offering high play value sites that may carry an acceptable level of risk. It is so important to work with the right partners in this industry so we can continue to offer exciting and challenging play spaces for children, while still offering assurances of safety to Local Authorities and families. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company!”
Frank Hunt, Support Service Manager, Haringey Borough Council
"We have used The Play Inspection Company for both our Operational and Annual Inspections in Haringey for the past three years and have found the detail and quality of your reports to be well structured and to a very high standard. We have also found your innovative web based inspection and reporting system to be very useful.
The approach that The Play Inspection Company adopts seems to be one of common sense. Aside from meeting with the legal obligations of being a Playground Operator, one of the prime reasons for a Local Authority to undertake inspections is to establish what is wrong with our equipment and how we can put it right, and this information is exactly what we get from your reports. We have found it refreshing to be issued with reports that do not focus entirely on compliance to the standard, but more on the level of risk that is applicable within the playgrounds, and with the safety of the end user in mind.
Your level of service has been second to none over the past three years and it is useful to know that there is always someone helpful on the end of the phone if required. We would happily recommend this company to any Playground Operator in need of logical, common sense advice about their playgrounds."
Tim Rollings, Fishers Farm Park, West Sussex
"Your inspection was far in excess in quality to any other inspection we have had carried out by any other organisations."
Dave Renouf, Borough of Broxbourne
"The level of service you provide is excellent and we always know there is someone helpful on the end of the phone if we need a bit of advice. We would recommend this company to anyone who needs good, common sense advice about their playgrounds."
Emma Dixon, Great Yarmouth Borough Council
"The option & ability to access individual playground reports online not only saves time and space in the office, but is contributing to our working with an environmental management system."
