    We as a business have used edfirst and tenders4u and can confirm have had a booking for Bathroom / Toilet refurb' we tender a lot for contracts so find the tenders4u site useful in what we need (its all about if you know what you are doing). We were approached via the edfirst, yes we were on it for a few months, asked to provide a quote and we did. We were a little cheaper that the original quote they received prior. All in All we can not give a negative review as they did what they said. I suppose its up to the business to make things work as well :)

    It's almost as if they had been googling the name to put up a testimonial.
    This space for hire.
  • If you are in any doubt, simply call a few of your local school and ask them if they use this company.
    None of the schools I called had even heard of them.
  • ED FIRST / School Supplies Services: - DO NOT PAY THIS COMPANY, avoid at all costs. Clever sales people cold calling new tradesmen who are on checker trade, therefore new business hungry people who are more likely to fall for their lies. They pull you in by saying they are registered with 409 schools in the area that your trading in, they then sneakily make a comment that their current trades person for that area and make it applicable to you for example, painter, decorator, fencer "cant handle the workload" and therefore you would then be the "emergency contact" for the 409 schools they are registered with. They also say they will personally notify the schools and that you will now be the contact for the work and ask cleverly if they can "handle" that workload. Making it sound as if your going to be incredibly busy. Then you get 0 work given as they are not even registered with any schools! Complete con men, do not understand how trading standards after clearly all the complaints by these reviews have not shut them down. Its disgusting. I am not going to stop until this company have seriously been shut down and at minimum get the money back. Mis-selling act / cold calling laws? Tradesman protection? Absolute JOKE
