JAS Mudhar, owner of Worcester Gas Services, has been in his trade for a long time, and has learned a few things about how to provide the best service.

Jas, 57, is originally from Birmingham, and has been in Worcester since 1996, having worked for Rover for several years before deciding to become a self-employed gas fitter, having worked in plumbing full-time.

After becoming gas safe registered, he then worked for a few different companies before becoming a qualified Bosch installer, which he has been for the last 15 years.

Being self-employed has meant Jas has had to take on far more than just fitting the boilers, he has to manage every aspect of the way his company works.

He said: "It is a challenge but it is what you have to do.

"One of my great beliefs is that if you do a good job, that keeps you going, especially in this trade which is massively based on word-of-mouth.

"If I did a bad job or couldn't manage my time properly, I wouldn't get any business." Being able to all aspects of the job is highly important, and Jas has a number of trusted professionals who he will bring with him on jobs to ensure the work is done to the highest standards.

When dealing with customers, Jas says being able to relate to and get along with them is vital, adding: "When I take on a job I will meet up with the person before hand so we can have a chat and know exactly what each side wants.

"Being approachable and having time for people is vital because it builds a strong relationship with not just that individual client, but future clients as well.

"I have some really reliable people with me who I trust and that makes all the difference."

Worcester Gas Services installs and services gas boilers and can fit or repair most makes and models.

Being trained and safety registered, the company offers free and impartial advice on the best heating options for homes.
