Rokie polisher

I found Gilroy's trawling through umptine Youtube channels on how to restore and Polish furniture. I have bought a few Vintage pieces from Ebay that need restoration and needed to know how to do this. After looking at ALL of Gilroy's informative videos I decided to go for the magic recipe of their Gold Wax Polish. Although I haven't yet used it, I know it's going to be amazing stuff and it came in a beautiful box with some flower seeds to attract bees and a wonderful full colour brochure about the product. Plus a voucher for a discount on my next purchase. The Wax also comes in a fabulous Kilner jar and I cannot wait to get polishing. First class service, excellent Product and a very satisfied customer. I've posted a photo of the Table I will be restoring, stripping, sanding, staining and then Rose Gold waxing. I hope to post the finished result soon. Cheers From Tanya

Attention to detail

Thanks Michael. I hope you enjoy using them. Best wishes Simon

Proper polish

Gilboys pure gold is just the best wax I have ever come across. It puts a shine on my furniture and a smile on my face.

Hi Ian. Thats very kind of you. I hope it continues to make you smile. Best wishes Simon

Dull to bright

Acquired antique furniture in poor condition after using the polish it’s as new Would highly recommend

Thank you. We hope you continue to have success. kind regards Simon

I'm just a bit speechless actually.
The box arrived in very good time ... it was beautiful - clearly so much care and thought went into its design and production.
The personalised note from Emma ... lovely to feel that Gilboy's were treating me as a special customer.
The contents! The wonderful waxes in their jars, the cloth, the repair cubes in their cute packaging, the seeds, the booklet - speechless!
Thank you for the kit: excellent and outstanding and much appreciated.
The only problem now is to temper my enthusiasm to make sure I use everything properly!
And for that, the videos are really helpful.
Yours sincerely,
Clive Price

Hi Clive. Thank you for your very kind review. Our company aim is to exceed expectations on all levels. Right from the very moment you receive our polish. I hope you continue to have success with our business. with very best wishes Simon

When I placed my order from Canada, I certainly appreciated the free shipping, but expected it to take an eternity to be delivered. To my surprise, I received my order in just a matter of days. What surprised me even more was attention to detail and care that went into the packaging. The hand written note from the Gilboys thanking me for my order and wishing me well with my furniture polishing, felt like receiving a note from a long time friend. The wax itself has transformed my dingy-looking furniture into statement pieced. Very easy to use, made fool-proof thanks to the well-designed instructions and application tips. A natural product too ... unlike other waxes, Gilboys smells non-toxic and didn't trigger any of many allergies. Many thanks to Gilboys: 5+ stars for sure. You have exceeded my every expectation.

Hi Daniel. Thank you for your kind review. We have tried our very best to ensure 'YOU' our customer, has the very best experience with our polishes and that includes how it is presented to you, the materials we use to package it and how fast we can get it to you. But most importantly we want it to reflect how much care and time was taken to create the polish in the first place. Thank you. Simon
Ace company to deal with and great product.

Ordered directly after a phone call to check which product would be most suitable for our furniture. The wax is excellent.

Thank you Martin. It is very kind of you. Simon
Wonderful product and Great Company

Love the beeswax polish! It made our antique piece look amazing without refinishing. The thank you note included with our order was over the top! You make your customers feel so important. Will buy again and again!!

Hi Cindy. Thank you. You are important to us. We want all our customers to feel they are directly connected to us. The same way our restoration customers feel when they come to our workshop. Best wishes Simon
Perfect gift

My wife had been dropping some not so subtle hints about wanting this starter kit. She was ecstatic to get one for valentines day and is now polishing any nice piece of furniture we have!
Really great product, good packaging and information included. Looking forward to planting the seeds once the weather improves.

Wow, I hope you gave her some flowers as well, Thank you for your kind review. Now is the time to sow your sweet pea seeds. We have just launched a short video on our YouTube channel demonstrating how we do it.. Best wishes Simon
Fantastic company and products

Ordered the beeswax starter kit it arrived promptly and was beautifully packaged with handwritten notes. When we buy online often the service feels impersonal but the inclusion of the note plus the sweet pea seeds confirms you are dealing with real people!. The product is amazing, I used it on a late 17th century walnut cabinet on stand, the stand like many is a 19th century replacement and to be honest I was considering replacing it or even painting it as the finish on the stand was so degraded and sun bleached (yes even in Scotland!). After a good polish with the Gilboys beeswax the finish has been transformed the colour and depth have been restored and the previously almost matt finish has now a good sheen. The waxes also smell lovely and of natural oils not nasty chemicals. This starter kit would be a fantastic gift for anyone that cares for their furniture. Well done Gilboys!

Hi Callum. Wow, thank you for your very kind review. Our company aim is to truly exceed our customers expectations, it is at the very heart of who we are as a business. I hope we continue to do so in the future. Your review helps confirm we are doing the right thing. Thank you. Simon Gilboy
Excellent finish for furniture

The wax polish brought out the colour of my furniture, and gave it a lovely shiny finish.

Hi Caroline. Thank you. I hope your furniture continues to glow. Best Wishes Simon
the best stuff

The best stuff with the best service, if the wood could speak it would say Thank you!

Hi Paul. Thank you. Our aim is to exceed expectations, of both the product and our customer service. It's lovely to think we are getting it right. Thank you.
Best results of any I have used.

Excellent flow out, easiest to apply of several alternatives currently used. Buffs more easily and to a far smoother sheen than any I have used or currently use. No tendency to ‘cake’ like candle wax residue that I have encountered with alternatives, just a thin even film to buff. Impressed. Several applications to an 1850 French oak, carved ‘gargoyle’ table base pedestals, untreated for many years, have brought back rich colour.

Hi Chris. Thank you for your kind review. I hope you continue to have success with our polish. Best wishes Simon

Great Product - usual classy packaging. Thank you

Hi Paul. Thank you for your kind review. Simon

Thank you James. That's very kind of you.
Great stuff

Love this polish. Bought it for an antique piano. And love that Gilboy’s make it themselves and offer to recycle the jars.

Hi Ann. Thank you for your kind review. And now we offer 'free shipping' to return and refill your jars. kind regards, Simon

gilboys rose gold.

Delighted with the results from using the "rose gold " wax. I respect the care ,and knowlege with which the ingredients have been chosen and combined- metaphorically it is alchemical- the result after waxing/polishing just wonderful. Great care with presentation and packaging, fast delivery. Recommend most highly.

Hi John Thank you for your very kind review. We have tried our very best to make you feel you are a personal customer to us. We hope you continue to enjoy our polishes. Best Wishes Simon

Hi Kim. Thank you. Have you got any images of the desk? I hope you continue to have success with our polishes. Best wishes Simon
Excellent Product

As a piano restorer I am always looking for products which will speed up the turnaround of customers instruments. I've found Gilboy's Gold is easy to apply and leaves a much harder shine than other waxes.

Hi Antony Thank you for very kind review, and great to hear from an experienced restorer. Kind regards. Simon Gilboy.
