Box and Defeo Ltd was formed in 2003 by Antony Box and Quin Defeo, both of whom had been in the building trade for nearly 20 years. In starting the company, our aim was to provide a friendly, reliable and high quality building service in Bedford. We can undertake any building work you need, from small extensions through to new build houses.
We offer a complete service, providing everything from obtaining planning permission through to the completion of building works. We will even arrange decoration, flooring, carpets and blinds if the customer so wishes. All of our projects are fully managed by Quin and Antony, so all the customer needs to do is choose what they want building and how it should be finished.
All our staff are fully-qualified tradesmen who will give maximum attention to detail and always consider that a family is living in our workplace.  We are registered with The Federation of Master Builders (FMB). As a company we are fully insured with both Employers Liability cover and Public Liability cover (with contract works cover which means any part of your house that is affected by the project is covered).
All projects are subject to a contract which we usually recommend to be a FMB “plain English” contract which is easy for all parties to understand.
Our quotes are extensive, clearly stating what is and isn’t included in the price thus avoiding any hidden extras that can so often cause conflict between builder and customer.
Finally, we pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable manner which puts our customers at ease and enables them to ensure that they get what they want.
