Dan Tucker – Operations Team Leader

PVF Scaffolding Ltd

After approaching South Molton Scaffolding Ltd during the first lockdown following several recommendations and reviews we approached Dom and his team to join our network to become our Devon scaffolding provider.

The Team have provided us an excellent level of quality, communication, and attention to detail throughout all our projects on both a domestic and commercial platform.

At PVF we manage our network to ensure each partner meets our national clients service level agreements. This covers, insurances, accreditation’s, valid works man-ship cards and safety training, which South Molton passed with flying colours.

At present the team are conducting a large-scale solar program across all parts of Devon for the solar together energy project supported by the district councils. We have helped support them during the application to join the scaffolding association, a highly valued accreditation within the construction industry.

We feel Dom, Jamie and the team are a great asset to us and the business award in question.

As an ex South Molton Junior school teacher in the late 70’s, can I just take this opportunity to thank the three young lads who erected the scaffolding at our house this morning. Not only were they quick, efficient and caused no disruption whatsoever, they were extremely friendly and polite. What a joy in this modern day and age. If they are local lads I could well have taught their grandparents!! They were a credit to your firm.

I have been using SMS for 27 yrs and never been disappointed. Always do their best to get jobs on time and cleared quickly when needed.

If there are ever any problems I have always been kept well informed.

Great Job guys.

Heath Boyer – Senior Site Manager


SMS erected scaffolding for Morgan Sindall at the South Molton Medical Centre project.  We always found SMS to be helpful and worked with us on a very awkward and challenging project. Space on site was very restricted making loading and erecting of scaffold difficult. Work was always carried out in a timely and safe manner. I would thoroughly recommend using SMS for your scaffold needs.

Andy Smith – Site Manager


Afternoon Dom

I would like to take this opportunity in thanking SMS for their excellent work on my last 2 contracts which was 42 dwellings at Pilton and 77 at Landkey.

Working with SMS has been a pleasure as their attention to detail is second to none whether its H&S practices or their ability to follow programme on a fast moving site.

Being a Site Manager for the last 23 years with Devonshire Homes that SMS are the best scaffold firm I have had the pleasure in working with  and hopefully in the future as well.

Dom and the team did a great job for us here and the roof stayed dry throughout all the work. They are a cheerful, polite and hardworking team, not shy of putting extra hours in if needed to get the job done. All they need is a steady supply of tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits and they really graft! Thanks very much.

John Potts – Site Manager

Chichester homes

Jamie and dom,
We are coming to the closing stages of Pebble Ridge and 99% of scaffold will be dismantled by the Christmas break.

Would like to say, It’s been a pleasure working with you guys on this site and as normal everything always runs perfect. Site is looking amazing and we’ve have so many comments on the quality of the construction. These comments have been from purchaser’s, building control, LABC, etc. Pebble Ridge made LABC Bricks Awards, to which we were runners up and this is down to the efforts made from every contractor on site and to the lengths they go to in making sure the site is kept tidy after their works are carried out, along with the quality of work. Nothing is ever too much to ask! Any problems, to which do occur on sites you are always more than willing to help and amend scaffold to meet all requirements. I can personally say, for me, South Molton Scaffolding are a great team and always look forward to having you on any development I manage for Chichester Developments.
‘GREAT WORK AND EFFORT TO THE WHOLE TEAM AT SOUTH MOLTON SCAFFOLDING’I look forward to working with you in the future.

Credit where credit is due.

Answered phone on a Sunday and gave a guide price, firm quote next day, erected within a week, adjusted part way through job within 2 days, removed at end of job within 2 days.

Compare this with one in Barnstaple and one in Ilfracombe who two months later still haven’t got back to me, and one in Combe Martin who quoted double the price.

Excellent, Martin.

Simon Cole

Anglian windows

My Name is Simon Cole I have run the roofline business for Anglian home improvements at Exeter for the last 17 years, one of my first jobs was recruiting a scaffold company for the mid to North Devon area.

A meeting was arranged with Jamie Stoneman who ran the company who had just taken over from his father. Since the meeting  we haven’t looked back as we have now used South Molton Scaffolding for over 17 years to date.

With our company expanding all the time which in turn has sent more work to South Molton Scaffolding without any issues as this company is a well-run family business, with the personal touch they supply.

The scaffolding business is a thankless job with scaffold poles obstructing peoples properties with views spoilt but with their operatives its always been a pleasure to work alongside as in our business we live on recommendations as customer care is key.

I would highly recommend this company for any job Big or small with their knowledge and trained staff. First class.

Quality outfit. Worked all day in the pouring rain without complaint. Completed the job ahead of schedule, including a few changes. Price wise competitive, but above all sensible advice and a professional service. Highly recommended.
