"Tom from Midlands Boat Surveys is very knowledgable and was extremely thorough while performing our boat survey. The report has all the detail you could need, was completed quickly and came in at a very reasonable price. As a new boater I found talking to Tom very valuable and I learned a lot about both the boat and staying safe on the water. I recommend him!"

"Tom was very quick to respond regarding our enquiry about a survey. He did research prior to the visit and was incredibly in depth on the day, sharing knowledge and advice on how to proceed with our first wooden vessel. He delivered the finished report within mere days and the price was very reasonable. Would absolutely recommend!"

"I have to say that the experience I have just had with Tom on my Princess 45 has been one of the best if not THE best I've ever had. Tom's service goes way beyond "sign here, pay here, there's your survey". The advice and discussion following his work have been exemplary and helped me reach a decision to purchase. Highly recommended!!!!"   Peter Bouwer 2021 

​"Tom has been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, the communication when I first made my enquiry right through to the extensive knowledge he has led to a very thorough survey being completed, which intern meant I could get a few issues I had no idea would be a problem in the future rectified before I completed on the sale of the boat. I will recommend him to everyone that asks when  purchasing a boat and will be using him 100% for my next boat in 2021. Thanks again Tom, Lloyd. 2021"


"We were really happy with Tom’s service and the report turn-around time which was super speedy.  It was so useful and reassuring to get the survey feedback over the phone on the day and to then receive the report so quickly was brilliant. We also appreciated all the invaluable additional information Tom imparted; such a bonus.  Tom is clearly very knowledgeable and has a passion for all things boating matched our enthusiasm for our new boat. Couldn’t have done it without you Tom" - many thanks. Liz B, 2021

"Tom carried out an excellent pre-purchase survey for me on my Sunseeker and was very thorough and professional. He picked up many points which was invaluable in negotiating my final purchase price, so the survey paid for itself in essence. I'd highly recommend Midlands Boat Surveys." Alan B, 2020

"As a novice boat owner, the purchase of the right boat was essential and Tom was excellent at explaining everything in layman's terms. He was fast to respond to any questions and his written survey was very detailed, but most importantly, easy to understand and prioritise any areas which need attention. As others have commented, his enthusiasm and passion for all things marine really shines through. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending his services".  Will B 2019  
"We contacted Tom to ask for a valuation on our new narrowboat we were fitting out. Not only was Tom very professional but he was very approachable and happy to share his knowledge. His years of working in the industry and the love for what he does really shone through. Tom was extremely thorough with no stone left unturned and nothing too much trouble. He also delivered all documents on time as agreed with us - not something that you always get these days. We are really glad that we found Tom to do our valuation and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to others. Thanks Tom".

Carol & Colin; 2019 

"Tom carried out a very thorough pre-purchase survey of the boat I was planning to buy. Very professional and comprehensive survey followed by prompt production of his survey report. Tom was happy to answer a few questions I had after the survey and I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a boat and wanting some peace of mind by having a professional surveyor examine the craft before committing to the purchase".
