 saving you hundreds of pounds buying a new one.
Hi my name is Quintin Howatson, I am an independent Domestic Appliance Engineer based in Ayr.
I repair almost all large domestic electrical appliances.

 Call 07986432198 and speak to me directly,
 not someone in a call centre.
Please bear in mind I may be working when you call and unable to answer the phone.
 However please leave your name and number and I will call you back.

Please have a note of the make, model number and approximate age of your appliance before you call.

 Quality matters that is why all work is fully guaranteed for 6 months. This covers parts and labour, providing you keep your receipt.
There are a very few safety related parts that are not covered by manufacturers guarantees, for example safety thermostats. Some manufacturers are now only giving a 3 months guarantee on parts. If this applies to you I will inform you before fitting and explain what guarantee you have. Unfortunately due to domestic manufacturers policies I cannot now give a guarantee for repairs on appliances that are used in commercial premises.
 As you will appreciate this is out with my control.

Really great service.

    Phoned Ayrshire Domestics today as my washing machine had suddenly stopped working. 
 Explained the situation to Quintin who immediately had an idea about what the problem may be. He arrived a couple of hours later, I hadn’t expected a same day service! Quintin immediately set to work and fixed the problem. Great service and very much appreciated.

21st May 2020
Highly recommended service.

Excellent fast response and very professional conduct. Have used the service twice now and repair was not expensive and completed to a high standard. Would definitely highly recommend the service provided. Quinton is very respectful and friendly and we have found him to be trustworthy coming into our home.

11th March 2020
Great Service.
                                                                Great service, reasonably priced, arrived on time I am very happy as my                                                                 washing machine was repaired quickly! Would definitely recommend!

First class service.

First class service. Quintin responded to our call straight away to repair oven. Diagnosed issue on phone am, confirmed he had required part and it was sorted                                                                                 by early afternoon. Saved our Xmas day. Would highly recommend.

6th November 2019
Value for money, timely, efficient and friendly service.

Quinton has been out a couple of times to repair a lock on our dishwasher a couple of months ago and again today to fix a problem with a leaking hose also on our dishwasher. On each occasion he has been here he has been on time. He is very friendly and efficient and gets the job done quickly. I would strongly                                                         recommend Quinton to my friends and family and frequently do. His charges seem to me to be very reasonable.

Service above and beyond.

We have been using Quentin over the last few years always with great results. The latest incident involved our Zanussi oven; Electrolux sent no less than 3 faulty replacement elements confirming Quentin's suspicion of a faulty batch in the warehouse. Eventually they sent a working part which was fitted. This whole process necessitated no less than 5 visits for which Quentin only charged the standard call-out fee. Outstanding service, great patience and an example of what                                                                                                     small businesses should be.

4th September 2019
Problem fixed and quickly.

I called the company and was fitted in as soon as possible and my problem was fixed. Total costs were very good rather than pay for a new washing machine.                                             This is the second time I have used Ayrshire Domestics and I would recommend them. Thanks. 

16th August 2019
Highly recommend.

My husband spoke to you this morning and you identified the problem with my washer drier without even coming out - a bra wire stuck through the drum. My husband was able to remove it and the machine is fine. I cannot thank you enough for your help and honest approach. If I had phoned anyone else I know I would have faced a hefty call out charge. I would recommend you without hesitation and will use you for any future appliance issues. 

22nd July 2019
Excellent Service.

Excellent service, efficient and a very pleasant person to have in our home. Very reasonable quote and an honest assessment of whether or not a repair was likely. Machine repaired and running well many thanks!

Top Reliable & Honest Service.
What a wonderful, honest, reliable and very helpful person! I had a speedy repair for my washing machine and was charged a very fair, and low price for this work which was carried out previously. Mr Howatson is also so helpful with advice, and I had some great help today with another issue I had with my washing machine, which instead of coming out straight away, Mr Howatson helped with the problem over the phone and it has now been resolved. Thank you for your help Mr Howatson! 😊

Washing Machine Repair.

Just had a visit from Ayrshire domestics who fixed my washing machine in about 15 minutes. New brushes were put on and I was extremely pleased with the price and the service. I would recommend this company to anyone out there. 👍👍👍

21st January 2019
Great honest service.

Thank you for your honesty and knowledge. Called to book my washing machine for a repair as spin wasn't working and you recommended that I check again with a more balanced load. Your honest advice saved me an unnecessary call out charge and I am very grateful. I will definitely get back in contact again if I have anything I need repairing. Many thanks.

Make your first port of call Ayrshire Domestics

If would be wonderful if all companies attended to their business as Quintin Howatson of Ayrshire Domestics does. From the moment I contacted him I felt confident with his professional approach, useful advice and upfront honest manner. He kept the appointment we made as promised, sorted my washing machine enigma, gave me advice on my tumble dryer, all for a very respectable call out fee. Everything Quintin claims to be on his website was true for me. I definitely recommend him and hope his business continues to thrive.

Quintin was very helpful and knowledgeable. His initial diagnoses of the issue with my oven was spot on. As he had the part already in stock he was available next day to install and fix the problem. Great flexible & efficient service and wouldn't hesitate to use again or recommend to others.

Quickly sorted out an issue with a washer dryer not drying. Very happy with the service and professionalism offered.
The job was completed quickly and explained fully what the issue was and how it was fixed.
Will definitely use again

First rate service

Quintin came to my property three times within a week - always on time - to fix my washer dryer. Turned out that there was a fault which was a potential fire hazard so we decided to scrap the machine. Quintin insisted on refunding me half of the call out charge, which I thought was absolutely amazing. Would not hesitate to recommend his service and he will be the first I will call for any future problems.

Genuine Honest Guy

We used Quintin a while back and didn't realise that he had this review facility. Never too late to say how impressed we were with his service and manner. Would recommend him to anyone who needs a good job, well done at a fair price when compared to the larger concerns offering a similar service. Phone Quintin first!!!

DavidM-767 First class service
I phoned Quintin at 9am to tell him I had a problem with my dishwasher. He said he could be with me by midday and true to his word he arrive at noon. He quickly diagnosed the problem and resolved on the spot.
I've used him previously and I'll have no hesitation in using him again.
I am happy to recommend a terrific local business.

CarolD-57 Urgent call out
What can I say about this guy except his work and speed is first class. I called him out to an elderly lady who was desperate for her oven to be repaired. Within two hours Ayrshire Domestics came out and fully repaired it with no disruption to the lady . The gentleman explained everything he was doing as he went along . I can never thank him enough for the fast response . I highly recommend and would use again without any doubt

AnneD-42 Zanussi washing machine repair.

Mr Howatson is reliable, upfront with repair costs, efficient and pleasant. I strongly recommend him and will have no hesitation in contacting him again should an appliance require attention.,Mr Howatson diagnosed the problem with the machine and gave me a price for the repair, over the phone . An arrangement was made for him to come to fix it and he arrived promptly. He certainly knew his way around what is a fairly old model and the new pump was installed with the minimum amount of fuss. Because of its age he had a thorough inspection, finding another small part badly worn which would soon also cause bother. To save another call out it was agreed that this also be replaced. I strongly recommend Mr Howatson: he is professional, upfront with his charges, reliable and pleasant. I shall certainly call him again if any other appliances require attention.

DavidR-236 Zanussi Repair
Called Ayrshire Domestics at 9 am today. Mr Howatson came at lunchtime, diagnosed the problem and replaced worn parts to have machine working again. Great service at a competitive price and with no surprises.

DavidK-98 Blocked Dishwasher

I'm glad I called Ayrshire Domestics - the dishwasher was fixed in minutes thanks to expert knowledge of the layout of filters and a nifty hand pump. And, as it say on the website, you get the man himself not a call centre!
