Hi Matthew & Team,

I would like to acknowledge the excellent job your installer has done on our latest fencing installation, the speed, quality of workmanship & his overall conduct were all very professional in all aspects of his work while on campus, a job well done once again by the Lockfast Fencing team.

Thanks once again for a quality installation! Craig, Hallam

Hi! Just want to say how very happy I am with the great work by the sales representative and Russell on my spa fence! They did a fantastic job, not a straight forward job which seemed to get more difficult as it progressed. Anyway they stuck with it and it all got done to a very high standard with fantastic service throughout.

I am a small business owner and so know the value of quality staff! Tanya in Accounts was also excellent, very helpful! Well done, happy to recommend you to anyone, thanks!

Adrian, Ashburton

Matt, thank you for getting Steve to install my new motor for our sliding gate. His service was excellent. He texted me of his anticipated arrival time, then again when he was running slightly late. He was personable and efficient.

It was a pleasure to deal with him and he is a credit to your organisation. Please pass my thanks and appreciation to him on his professionalism.

John, Lilydale
