The switch looks good in my Victorian house. Added a little wooden back plate and the servant’s call switch looks like it’s been there forever. Very pleased. Would definitely use this company again.

I purchased 27 of the 2 way bakelite switches in 2019 for my 15th century house which required a complete restoration. The switches were finally fitted in 2021 but I have recently been experiencing problems with 9 of them. I called Broughtons at 14.30 on 21st March 2023 and received an email 10 minutes later informing me that they were sending replacements. These were received at 13.00 today 22nd March 2023 together with a free postage label for the returns! UNBELEIVABLE CUSTOMER SERVICE - MANY THANKS

My Dads house is over 100 years old and has lots of old style switches. I needed a 2 way one to sit with a bank of 3 round switches. It’s what I wanted. I only giving 4 from 5 due to waiting almost 3 months to receive.

I live in the USA, but had been to Broughtons while living for a short time in England. I purchased one item from the USA and one from Broughtons, but my order from Broughtons arrived quicker than from the one bought here in the states! Before purchasing the switches, I had several questions which were quickly answered via email. Thanks for the great service.

As other reviewers have said, the product is just the job. However, I also wanted to review the customer service from Broughtons. I phoned with a query and their team went the extra mile to answer it in full - even photocopying the manual and sending that over. The goods arrived very quickly and were well packed. 10 out of 10 all round

I wanted a Bakelite style switch for a room I was restyling. This was just the job. There were some issues with casing but Broughtons replaced it very quickly. Wiring was straightforward and the switch is now in place working. Long may it continue.

I bought four of these switches to replace old switches as part of a rewire on an historic property. These switches are a perfect replacement of the original Crabtree switches. There was an issue with one switch but Broughton’s handling of the fault and their subsequent quick replacement with no quibble was excellent customer service and its customer service that I find just as important as a good quality product.

Bought 2 of theses switches for a large log cabin that we have just bought. We wanted to keep it nice and rustic looking inside and these were the ideal choice. Look so much better than modern day switches would do. A little bit pricey for what they are , but if it's what you want you have to pay the price, but genuinely happy with them.

Broughtons were helpful over the phone with advice of what I had to order so that I was able to feel reassured that I had the write switch. Delivery was swift and I’m very pleased wit the product which replaced old Bakelite switches all over the house. They look like they have always been there.
