“Jamie was extremely professional, arrived on time, did all work to the highest standard, and left the areas he worked in spotless. He went the extra mile creating a base plate for the outdoor security light/camera to ensure it will achieve optimal lifetime. The website promises to 'think, look, and work smarter' and they live up to it. Highly recommend and will be in touch for future projects.”


TV/entertainment unit

9th November 2018

“Neil designed the cabinet to my exact needs. He had some great ideas, and was also able to tweek the designs as needed. I am VERY happy with the end result.

Only issue: once was built, he asked when I could go to Foxton to pick it up - a 3hr round trip, for which I have no van/trailer. He said he could deliver it but for $288. I found a mover that did it cheaper (250). Neil, if you're bidding for work in Wellington (i.e. not in Foxton) you need to make this clearer earlier. Was not happy”

Reply: “Thanks for the review and your comments Liam.
As requested I supplied a quote to manufacture this cabinet only. Liam did not request a delivery cost.
I was not made aware from Liam of his personal circumstances.
