We currently carry out works for a variety of clients including some of Edinburgh’s biggest Letting Agents.

First Gas Services has been trading for several years now, started by myself, Gary Riddell – Managing Director, with just a van & the drive to make a company with customer service at the forefront of the business ethos. My background has given me the experience in all aspects of gas, plumbing & heating, from starting out as an apprentice with an Edinburgh housing association, to working in Glasgow as a boiler specialist. This led to working all over the central belt catering to the needs of both letting agencies & private customers. I always felt I could provide a better & more efficient service than any of the companies I was representing.

My company has grown organically over the last few years, through word of mouth & personal recommendations. I now have a growing fleet of vans & designated administration staff. We pride ourselves on improving the level of customer service at the same rate & keeping it as personal as day one.

Client Testimonials

  • Gary and his First Gas team have undertaken gas safety checks, boiler installation, plumbing services and PAT tests for a number of our properties in Edinburgh. Work has been completed on time, in a professional manner and to a good standard. We would have no hesitation in recommending First Gas Services to landlords, tenants, homeowners and the like.

    Eric & Nicola Wardle Private Customer/Landlord
  • I’ve been using First Gas Services for a few years & wouldn’t look elsewhere. Reliable, trustworthy & know their stuff. Their prices are competitive.

    Tim Dale Private Customer/Landlord
  • After several years of using expensive & inconsistent plumbing tradesmen, a friend recommended First Gas Services. After providing a competitive quote before carrying out any work, they complete jobs to a very high standard, & always on time. They’ve also helped us out at very short notice on at least three occasions. We wouldn’t use any other company & wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gary & his team.

    Gavin Weir Private Customer/Landlord
  • I have used First Gas Services for both myself & my elderly mother, I have found them to be very professional, prompt, & friendly. Even with the smallest of problems I was treated with respect, nothing seems to be a hassle. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

    Deborah Hill Private Customer/Landlord
  • We have been using First Gas Services for over a year and have been very impressed with their high level of service. Their behind the scenes administration & communication is excellent, which is where many trades companies fall down. They schedule visits within hours of us requesting them, turn up when they should, communicate back on issues found & quote for work immediately and invoice as soon as the job is complete. I can also trust them completely to manage difficult situations with tenants.

  • Gary and the guys at First Gas Services have completed well in excess of 1000 gas and plumbing related jobs on our behalf over recent years. The whole team are a true reflection of Gary’s commitment to ensuring service satisfaction. It is vital to us that communications, reports, estimates and invoices are timely and thorough. With First Gas we can trust that this is the norm. I would recommend the team at every opportunity!
