On the 1st of August 1999 Metro Rod Oxford opened it’s doors and began trading for the first time. What started out as a one van operation has grown over the past 2 decades to having a fleet of vehicles and a small army of staff! We’ve seen a lot happen during our time, but our reputation for drain care and repair has only grown, our commitment to customer service remained consistent and as a drainage company we have only gotten better!

 

Cast your minds back to the summer of 1999. Ronan Keating was topping the UK charts with “When You Say Nothing At All”, people were holding in the spoiler of the summer after watching “The Sixth Sense” at the cinema and TV screens were dominated by the show FRIENDS, then in it’s heyday. In other news the UK experience a solar eclipse and the world was caught up in fears over Y2K, which turned out to be unfounded.

In amidst all of this, a drainage company began in Oxfordshire. Initially run out of a dining room with one man in a van and our director Sue Caulfield working with a computer, a phone and a fax machine, the drains of Oxfordshire and West Buckinghamshire were in safe hands! Our experience and services have grown over the years to now include as many drainage services as:

  • drain unblocking
  • High Pressure Water Jetting
  • CCTV drainage surveys
  • gutter clearance and maintenance
  • urinal descales
  • excavations and pipe replacements
  • no dig repairs: localised structural repairs
  • tanker services
  • and much more…

 

This year to celebrate our 20 year anniversary we are thrilled to announce that we are holding a Drainage Day on the 16th of September to show off all that we can do, to thank our customers and to educate on the best ways to maintain your drains to avoid needing unblocking services! We are honoured to be holding this in Bicester at John Nicholls Plumbing and Heating Supplies. There will be more information to follow so watch this space and for today we shall be raising a glass to 2 decades of Metro Rod Oxford!
