Fitted Bedroom Wardrobes

I'm looking for someone to fit some bedroom wardrobes into my flat. I tried two national companies (Sharps Bedrooms and Spacemaker) but the prices they came back with were a lot more than I was expecting!

Not looking for anything too fancy or difficult, just hanging rails and some shelving.

Can anyone recommend a good carpenter or joiner who has good experience with this sort of thing please?

I remember there was a thread on here a while back with people mentioning a few companies but then there was some sort of slagging off of one of the companies and now I can't seem to find the thread so don't know if it was removed?

Any help would be much appreciated. No major urgency to get this done ASAP so if there's a good workman whose busy for the next month or so who has a good price I'd be prepared to wait.

Thanks in advance

I used Iain Parker who was recomended through this website and he was good. His website is:

I love the wardrobes he built me!

I can certainly second LouiseW's recommendation. It was me who posted the initial recommendation and he certainly is very good.
