Pimlico: Trusted by London for over 40 years

This month, Pimlico shares its story of success with Tradesman Saver.   

Pimlico are a multi trade service company that has worked within London and the M25 for over the last 40 years, offering a range of trade services such as plumbing, heating, electrics, drainage, carpentry, roofing, appliances, air con, building and bathrooms. We offer customers a fast reliable 24/7 service with a 1 hour emergency response time.

Our story

It began in 1979 with one man, a second hand van and a bag of tools.

Situated in a basement of a local estate agents in Pimlico, the ambition was big yet simple. The aim was to change public perception on plumbing and build a reputation for being the best. We set out to do this with the basics, making sure we turn up when we say we will, with a clean van, uniform and to get the job done.

With all that covered, demand grew and a move to a bigger premises on Lambeth Road to accommodate the growing number of staff was the natural next step – it wasn’t all plain sailing though. Growing a business and making sure there is enough work to go around is a constant balancing act, however over time Pimlico grew from strength to strength and eventually an even bigger premises was needed to cater for the growing operation.

In 2000 the business purchased the now permanent HQ at Sail Street. The 30,000 sq ft building holds multiple levels of office space, a vehicle wash bay and workshop, a state-of-the-art gym and a roof terrace, the perfect space for Pimlico’s continued growth.

Over the years our vans have become recognisable all over London for their distinctive blue nose livery and quirky personalised number plates.

We have over 150 personalised plates – a few of our best are:

  • W4TER
  • CA11 OUT
  • 24 HRS
  • BOG 1
  • WEF 1X
  • DRA 1N
  • LOO2 OLD

Our future

In 2021 Pimlico was sold to US giants Neighbourly, to join their family of brands. Both organisations are committed to delivering positive customer outcomes, through increased investment in technology, marketing and employees.

Speaking on the news, Neighbourly commented:

“Pimlico’s wide array of trade services, as well as its exceptional customer care, perfectly align with Neighbourly’s purpose, which is to build an extensive service community known for providing excellent experiences”.

Today the company partners with over 200 trade professionals that complete over 100,00 jobs each year for a high-end customer base located in some of the most prestigious postcodes in London. Backed by its American owners, Pimlico aspires to double its growth and with continued growth comes opportunity.
