“We have recently had both our drive and patio relaid by Unique Driveways under the supervision of Steven Gates. We couldn’t be happier! The consultation process was thorough and productive. We had ideas about what we wanted and, together with Steven’s excellent advice, we now have an even better drive and patio than we had imagined. From start to finish, Steven and his team worked efficiently, carefully and skillfully to produce excellent results. When I asked for alterations, even though they were not part of the original brief, they were carried out courteously, cheerfully and to the highest standard. Incidentally, our previous drive, also laid by the same family business, had served us well for over thirty years. Clearly, they have a proven record of excellence and reliability. Thank you, Unique Driveways!”
Gaynor and Peter Morgan
“We were looking for a company that installed tarmac drives and wanted something a bit special, Unique Drives didn’t let us down! We’re really pleased with our new tarmac drive and hopefully no more weeding. We’d definitely recommend Unique Drives, thank you for our lovely new drive.”
S. Salvidge, Redditch
“For the complete renovation of our drive we obtained nine quotes, and we are very pleased that we chose the quote from Unique Drives which was competitive.
Steve arranged with us his anticipated start and finish dates which were adhered to despite the dreadful weather. He listened to what we wanted and he and his team worked tirelessly and professionally to achieve this. The whole team were friendly, courteous and helpful. The team cleared up when the work was finished and left only the new drive to admire.
We are very proud of our new drive, the final cost was as quoted. We would recommend Steve (Unique Drives) to anyone. We have already had positive comments about the workmanship.”

“We found Stephen a nice friendly man, who has a great flair for designing just what is asked, in an attractive and imaginative style. He and his team possess all the necessary skills for such a project, and are all extremely hard workers, ensuring that the job is completed within the specified time. Many people have admired our new driveway and some have taken photographs of the ‘Unique’ board outside. We would not hesitate to recommend them.”

“Thank you for completing my driveway to such a high standard. You hear such horror stories surrounding driveways but having seen a number of projects carried out by you and spoken to a number of people I’m pleased to say we were not disappointed. The crew worked non stop and although we were out at work during the project it was clear to see standards did not fall. You completed the work on time offering advice on colours and designs and at a reasonable price. I would have no concerns recommending you.”
Ms C Thompson, Redditch
“We have known Steven from Unique Drives for a number of years as he has been a longstanding customer. Last Spring we decided to have our driveway and parking area re-tarmaced. I should like to confirm that the work carried out was of the highest standard. His employees are hard working men, who work extremely efficiently and professionally and get on with the job. Their groundwork was excellent and they use the latest machinery and tools available. All work was of the highest quality and their experience in Tarmacing is easy to see.
The bricklaying, pointing and finish were again done to a high standard and their advice on the design/layout was excellent.
We have no hesitation in recommending Unique Drives and indeed have done so to numerous customers in our Barnt Green shop. Please feel free to visit our shop and view their work.”

We are very happy with their work. From start to finish they were professional, they arrived promptly and finished the work in five days. We are extremely pleased with our new drive and would have no hesitation recommending them.”

“This is a testimony about the company known as Unique Drives. The work at my house involved re-tiling a large 200m terrace using large porcelain tiles and re-laying three sets of steps into the garden area, taking off the existing large slabs. Unique Drives began the work and completed it with utmost diligence and understanding of the importance of maintaining the integrity of the house and it’s lawns. Since completion of the work I have been extremely pleased with the result and have received nothing but compliments from friends about it.
In my experience Stephen and his crew were fantastic, it seemed nothing was too much trouble for them and they were accommodating in every aspect of the job.
I will strongly recommend this firm to anyone who is looking to carry out a new drive or terrace on their property. This is a company who takes care of their customers needs first and honorably.”
“Our drive was breaking up and needed replacing. After looking at other Unique Drives work and speaking to previous customers we chose to go with them.We we’re given a quote, shook hands and the job was done to time and to specification. Advice was given on the best way to do the job which we took. They arrived on the due date, at the correct time to commence the work. The staff were all very friendly, helpful, hardworking. No money was asked before we were fully satisfied at the completion of the job.
After all the horror stories one reads about drive companies we were naturally a little apprehensive. We did not need to be. They did exactly what they said that they would do, when they said they would do it. A good experience.”
Tim Parker, Plymouth Road
“Having the front drive resurfaced is not a job any of us get done often and it was therefore with relief that we found Unique Drives. Steve was able to provide sound advice on what needed to be done and what would look good. With the decision made to proceed, Steve updated us on when the job would start and when they would expect to finish. All went to plan, looks better than we envisaged and we would like to express our appreciation to Steve and his team for a job well completed!”

The task was completed on time and we have been especially pleased with the finished work, as have our neighbours and friends, who have all commented on the improvement on the appearance of our house. We would have no hesitation in recommending Unique Drives.”

“I am writing to thank you for the great work carried out on the driveways. The driveway looks great and has dramatically enhanced the overall appearance of the front of the house. We appreciate that raising the height of the drive significantly, whilst reducing the slope and creating more parking spaces was not an insignificant effort. The hours of preparation, hard work and the volumes of materials utilised to create a great driveway in line with our own specifications really paid off. We would thoroughly recommend Unique Drives who provide a friendly and unique service.”
Mr & Mrs S Medhurst, Barnt Green
“I have been extremely pleased with the work that Unique Drives have done and the professional manner in which they went about the process.

“The work of Unique Drives can be see throughout Barnt Green. Their popularity is due to their high standards of design and craftsmanship and their efficient working practices. When Unique Drives start to work it is at once clear that everyone works for all of the time. This means that the wait for their services is not long and that the task in hand is completed in the shortest possible time. Their work also shows impressive attention to detail. We have been delighted with the work which they have done around our house.”

“I want to tell you how pleased we are with our new drive. It was great to be able to find someone who did what he said he would.
Your team were polite and considerate whilst working at our home and they worked hard to create the entrance to our home that we wanted.
The drive is now flat and finished to a very high standard, the cobbles to the top of the drive are very well done and work well with the walling and the gates.
I would not hesitate to recommend your company to any of my friends and family. Thank you again for a very good job well done.”
Samantha and Paul Cartwright, Hagley
“I would happily recommend Stephen and his team at Unique Drives. Without doubt Stephen is a great salesman, he is one that listens to what his customer wants and is able to translate what he has heard accurately into the design and specification of the actual drive.
The team work quickly and efficiently, they are courteous and polite. The work is completed to a high standard, with any questions or concerns dealt with promptly and with understanding.
I am delighted with our new driveway; it has transformed the look of the front of our home. We have received so many positive comments about the design and layout.”
J.Greenhalgh, Barnt Green
“About 10 years ago Unique Drives designed and built a new driveway at our house. We were impressed with the attention to detail undertaken. They recommended a red tar surface which we felt gave the drive a distinctive appearance. The side borders in a blue brick framed the workmanship and we are as proud now as we were 10 years ago. We fully recommend Unique Drives to anyone considering a quality driveway.”
J.Bodycote, Kings Norton
“I was recommended by some good friends of ours to consider using Unique Drives to tarmac and landscape our drive. I had been impressed with other works undertaken within the local area and decided to engage Unique Drives having spoken to other potential providers and obtained various quotes. Stephen and his team were considerate, courteous and hardworking throughout and I have been very impressed by both their attitude towards the work and their performance on the job. I recommend Stephen and his team without reservation and would be pleased to provide further information if required”
