Service call success!

Good Wednesday morning Lorraine,

I want to comment on the amazing two young men who made the most recent service call. We did not get their names but your company will know who they are. This is the second service call we’ve needed to get some consistency going with our gas stove. These two men took the time; gave us total explanations as to where and why the remote could/should be placed in the room and stayed to be sure the temperature showing was what it should be. We couldn’t have been more pleased and satisfied.

Since I’m on the subject of service calls I would also like to applaud the two men who serviced our stove this past summer (cleaning/checking etc,).

Again these people were the second visit to do this particular job and they were amazing and truly accommodating.

We highly recommend these particular people “are keepers”.

Best regards,

Your Friendly Fires crew was a delight to have in our house!

Hello Curtis!

All went very well with the installation , your crew was very professional and friendly, a delight to have in our house. We have used our Enviro Boston Cast Iron wood stove since installation and are very satisfied with it looks and performance!  We have already had some friends and neighbors inquire as to where it was purchased and who installed to which we replied “Friendly Fires “and we will continue to do so!

Marquis Bentley 39″ gas fireplace is really great… and so are you!

Hi Hayley!

I just wanted you know that the fireplace is really great – what a difference in the flame and overall appearance!
We so appreciate the efforts of you and Duane to resolve the problems with the 42″.
We would highly recommend your company and this type of fireplace to anyone.Your team of installers especially Bobby and Brett were excellent.  Jeff was very helpful as well in assessing the problem with venting etc.

It is interesting how things work out. We really appreciated your help when we considered another property last summer before buying this home.That experience prompted us to try and give you the business if possible.
Thanks again,
Stan and Sheila Soden

Worth the drive to Carleton Place!

Hi Scott!

I just wanted to say how pleased we are with our new HearthStone Heritage wood stove and to thank you both for your help and assistance. Your service was most impressive and nothing short of superb. I am so pleased we drove the extra mile to Carleton Place to do business with you.

Once again thanks!

I don’t write a lot of reviews, but this company was worth the effort to do so!

We are new to the area and this is our first time purchasing a wood stove and gas fireplace. We always do a fair amount of research before a large purchase or renovation project.
We had cut down some large trees, and wanted to use the wood to supplement our heating costs. We also had a new gas service installed.
We were referred to Friendly Fires in Kingston. Their showroom has a large selection of high quality products to choose from. On our first visit we met Curtis who was knowledgeable, friendly and took the time to answer all our questions. He also asked the right questions, to offer the best selection of products for us to choose from. When Curtis was off, Brad and Steve, were able to seamlessly provide the same level of quality customer service. The delivery was arranged. The delivery guys, Gilles and Colin, were super nice, careful with our product and the house. They called half an hour before the delivery and arrived on time. They had a power lift to maneuver the 500 lb Pacific Energy Alderlea Cast Iron wood stove into the basement, no problem. I don’t write a lot of reviews, but this company was worth the effort to do so, as they consistently provided great service from the time we walked through the front door. I will continue to do business with them and refer them to others.

Can’t wait to burn some wood this winter.
Thanks guys,

Satisfied Customer

I recently purchased the Green Mountain Grills Davy Crockett pellet grill from Friendly Fires in Kingston. Although the grill was of great quality, I had an issue with my purchase. Steve Peters (Kingston store) took the time to make everything right within a week. You can buy great products anywhere but, the customer service I received through Friendly Fires was outstanding. I will be making all my future grill purchases through their company.
Everyone that see’s the grill asks where I purchased it and I do not hesitate to refer them to Friendly Fires. They will go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. Thank you very much Steve Peters and the staff at Friendly Fires.

Another happy customer with the cleaning of her Enviro Max pellet stove!

Hi Curtis,

The cleaning of my Enviro Max pellet stove went really well.  I was pleased with the service provided by Colin & John.  I asked many questions, which they did not hesitate to answer nor were they irritated that I interrupted their work.  They did a very thorough cleaning of the stove and did not leave a mess behind them.  I know I made the right choice in purchasing a pellet stove from Friendly Fires.  The staff have been very helpful and friendly to deal with from the process of finding the right stove to meet my needs, to the installation, to the first cleaning.

Thank you!

Napoleon Prestige P500RSIB BBQ Impresses!

Napoleon-P500RSIB (1)

Dear Friendly Fires,

We bought a beautiful Napoleaon BBQ a while ago,  to replace our wired together antique.
We were promised delivery for last Friday morning and I had the hamburgers ready to cook.  It is so nice when a business actually delivers when it promises.  Your men were here at 10:30,  explained the essentials so we could understand  and we had our new incredible cooking machine!

We bought it at your Peterborough store,  where we had purchased a fireplace a year ago and again we were so pleased with our purchase.  Also to have it assembled and delivered is such a plus.

I would also like to give credit to our young (we are in our mid 70’s so everyone seems young) saleman,  who was excellent with patience, and good listening skills.  I think his name was James.

Keep up the good work!
