Prompt friendly and efficient service. Left an urgent message on ICE answerphone on a bank holiday and, with great relief, received a callback (thank you). It was reassuring to actually speak to someone, and to have advice from someone who could come out as a matter of urgency and help was very much appreciated.

Tony responded very quickly to my enquiry regarding my concern about asbestos on a garden shed roof. He arrived promptly and dealt with the matter in a very professional manner. I would recommend Ice Asbestos and use their services again should the need arise.
