Can you trust our judgement?

We've taken quite a bit time to establish good relationships with the companies we work with. Our goal when creating the site was to establish a bank of relaible, local and honest companies who can provide services to residential or commerical properties where there may be limited knowledge of 'what makes a good drainage company'. We have already taken the time to answer that exact question and that relieves some of the pressure on you finding someone you can trust. So, can you trust out judgement? I would like to think you can.

CCTV Drain Inspection, Drain Survey

It can be very frustrating knowing that you have a blockage in one of your drains but not knowing where it is. We don't recommend digging up drainage for no reason as this is costly and can be upsetting. Therefore, any blockages that are not apparent we are able to investigate using a CCTV camera which we feed into the drain and use to monitor where the blockage is and evaluate the best way to remove it.

Driveways, Walkways, Patios

Driveways, walkways or patios - you name it and we will do it. More and more we are being asked to produce a range of paving designs. We can work with you to decide on the best type of groundwork and then proceed with the design and construction.

We come highly recommended - See for yourself

I found NE Drains from a quick search and submitted my job. I wasn't too hopeful but was worth a try. Within an hour DGS Limited contacted me to arrange a time to come and unblock my drain. I was so impressed with how quick everything was. The service of DGS was amazing and much cheaper than I expected.

We recently moved into a new property and wanted to move a bathroom. We needed to therefore rearrange all of the outdoor drainage. We put a job post on NE Drains as we thought it might help us narrow down some highly recommended companies. We were amazed at the support from the NE Drains team. Knowing the scale of our job they put us in touch with three of their companies who each came to quote and we were able to agree a price with one company who were just great. Thanks for the service.

Jo in Otterburn

Needed some support with toilets and drains after being sat for so long unused during COVID-19. Posted job on NE Drains, had a company come out same day and unblock a drain which had built up over time. Did a CCTV scan and then removed. Good price, local business and hard working. Thanks.

Things we get asked

How are NE Drains different to the likes of Checkatrade or Trustatrader?

NE Drains are a subsidary of a larger local company, NE Service Group. We are local, just like the businesses we work with. Our goal is to keep business local while ensuring services rendered are to the highest standard. 

We don't charge commission. Many other organisations charge on a commission basis. When a business accepts a job they are asked to pay a commission to the website who got them it. These businesses ask for extra money to put that business at the top of their website, so called "sponsored links". 

We don't believe in paying to get to the top. We reward our local businesses based on the feedback they receieve each week. If you want to call a company directly and don't want us to find you a best quote or perhaps it is the middle of the night when our teams are not working, you can use our Quick Call feature which directs you straight to our top performing drainage company of that week. That way you know you're in safe hands and our businesses work harder to get that button on our site. It is the only direct link to one of our businesses on the site.

How much does a drain or toilet unblock cost?

Our local businesses come with a wide range of technology. Most drain unblocks can be done within minuntes using drain rods. Some may require as  CCTV inspection to find the cause of the blockage and the best way to tackle it. On average, all of our businesses offer drain unblocks at a cost that is at least 50% cheaper than the likes of Dyno-Rod or Local Heroes. Take a look at their prices, then come back and let us get you a much better price locally.

How long will they be?

Firstly, identify whether it's an emergency or not. If you need a company rapidly then why not try our Quick Call feature? This will directly connect you with our top performing drainage company that week. They can then determine the quickest time they can get to you. If you're not in such a rush and would like us to source some prices on your behalf then submit a job description and we will make some phone calls. Rest assured, we will connect you with a drainage company the same day you submit your request as long as it is within business hours; our team needs to sleep sometimes.

It's 2am and my toilet cistern is overflowing - Can you help?

We don't want you to be stuck with a squelchy bathroom floor through the night. However, our team of quote busters do need time to sleep and are probably having sweet dreams about sewage by this point. That's why we created the Quick Call feature and agreed with all of our companies that they will respond to all emerceny call-outs free of charge. You read it correctly, no emergency callout charge.

What if your find me a company that can't unblock my drain?

Pffft, unlikely. However, it is possible. Not to worry though because we have the Swiss Army Knife of Drainage Companies at our finger tips. If we find you a company who can't fix your problem for lack of specialist equipment then we will source someone new or connect the company to another company who could perhaps loan them the correct equipement. We won't leave you at any point without your problem fixed. We will go through every drainage company in the North East if we have to.

My drain smells really bad - Does that mean it's blocked?

Not necessarily, however it does suggest that there is a build up of some not so nice stuff down there. Our drainage companies can help you elimated those smelly drains using thee latest technology in high-pressure drain jetting. Our skilled and experienced teams will be able to clean your drains and leave them smelling like, well, not smelly drains.

What do I pay? Who do I pay? When do I pay?

What do I pay?

We will do our very best to negotiate a cost with a local drainage company who are nereby. We will use our contacts to find you the very best price. However, there could be times where the drainage company discover more than what they bargained for and this could result in a change in the cost. Our companies will always explain why the cost needs to change and give you the option to find a new quote. That said, we put a lot of trust in the companies we work with and believe the price they quote is still a very good price. 

Who do I pay?

You won't pay any fees to NE Drains at all. We don't take any money from you for the services we offer. All monies will be paid directly to the drainage company.

When do I pay?

You should only pay once the work has been completed an dyou are satisfied that the problem has been fixed. We will then be in touch to ask for your feedback on your experience with the drainage company who serviced you.

What's all this about new Septic Tank Regulations?

As of 1st January 2020, septic tanks are no longer allowed to discharge to a watercourse, or to a soakaway system other than a drainage field. Make sure you are ready for the new regulations; read through our information on the new regulations and submit a job description if you would like us to source drainage companies who can supply you with a quote.
