Customer Reviews

Tom Wooding wrote a review on Google Business:

“Really good service from these blokes. Called at the end of Level 4 and they were able to book me in less than two weeks after (most companies were not even taking bookings due to the high workload). In and out really quick and the banter from the sparky was A-grade. Definitely recommend these guys. Pretty affordable too (~ $150 for an hours work which is pretty good for a big-name trade company).”

Really appreciated their professional advice and their friendliness, thank you.”

“Very impressed with the job. Both, the plumber and electrician, Todd and Jeff were pleasant to deal with, efficient and communicative. Highly recommend Clyne and Bennie and would have no hesitation in using their services again when required.”
