    "Did an excellent job of felling my phoenix palm which was in a tricky position near mine and a neighbours house. They protected the area well, did the job quickly and efficiently even in the pouring rain with excellent tidy up. Despite their best efforts, a gutter was slightly damaged but they were fantastic about getting this repaired and allowing reduction of their fee for the full amount. I would highly recommend this company. They were also significantly cheaper than 2 other companies I contacted. Overall, great people to deal with!"

    "Stu was positive and friendly from the beginning when he came to do a quote for some tree trimming. He gave us the reassurance that his team would do a good job. Jed and everyone else in the team followed through and did an exceptional job, at the end left the place very clean and tidy. They were on time, hard working, friendly and respectful. Outstanding job! Highly recommend and will get in touch for any future work needed."

    "We have ordered mulch from these guys over the last couple of years but this year it fell FAR below expectations. They seem to be having problems answering emails for orders and when you call they are flustered and busy - mobile number goes to the person on the job not the office - and have to call back. It took 2 emails and 2 phone calls to get the order in. Anyway - as I said, generally the mulch has been ok for the price but this time we found 4 Cody's cans and heaps of flax and wood/branches the size of my arm in the load. There was also the better half of a Nikau palm all broken up and slimy. I did contact them to comment and they knocked $50 off the price but we will NOT be dealing with them again. Just not worth the hassle. Tania asked that we send photos of what was delivered so that she could take it up with the people in the yard. I did and we did not hear back."

    "The crew came on time and within a couple of hours they were done.. 7 med to small trees a big hedge and stump grinding.. and the place was left really tidy. What a difference. We even had a neighbour comment to us that she had paid twice the price with a different company and it was nowhere as smooth an operation as the boys from A1 sure services!!.. highly recommend "

    "The gang of five did a superb, professional job taking out our old dangerous gum tree. They worked all day and into the evening using the lights of their car to complete the job. Their clean up was excellent. Studs quote was realistic and affordable, to like some others I got. They have my highest recommendation, and I would use them again."

    "second time I have used this company, the first was cutting trees around my work. This time is was a big 4 hour job at my home trimming large trees, mulching it and removing plants no longer required. Stu called around to do the quote then a few weeks later his team of 3 arrived and worked efficiently and did a fantastic job. I noticed that their mulcher was brand new and all the team worked well togeather and were very safety conscious. These guys are very good, they know the types of trees/shrubs and I was very pleased with the finished result. I will use them again."

    "A1 Sure services tree care did an impressive job from day 1.
    We shopped around for quotes to remove a medium phoenix palm tree, 3 tall palm trees and grind all stumps plus another.
    A1 Sure Services had a guy over to quote the next day with the most competitive price.
    We got a booking in as soon as they could manage and 3 men turned up at 8am and started the work. It took them 4 hours and they did an amazing job.
    They ensured the area was left tidy and safe by taking everything away. They gave us confidence as they were all qualified arborists and the company had full insurance. And they were all friendly and lovely Highly recommended

    "We had a 60ft Pine tree dismantle in our front garden, by Will and his team. Excellent work. Very professional and pleasant to deal with. The young man who was up the tree, cutting branches was very precise and on target. The pine was cut into rings, so we now have plenty of wood for winter, and heaps of mulch for our garden.
    Reasonably priced. Thank you A1 Sure Services.

    "We used A1 services for landscaping and I would not recommend them as there were lots of misunderstanding mainly due to the fact they didn't provide a plan and the workers were unclear on what to do. I guess if you can be home looking over their shoulders then they are ok.
    As part of the job they seeded the garden with a mix of clovers and rye, that was a total disaster.

    "i would not buy firewood from this company again. They were not cheap and the wood was crap. So much rubbish amongst it, much so hard to burn and with no heat coming from it. Some just smoulders and forget flames! I did email them to tell them I was not happy as I thought I should give them the chance to address it with me, or make amends but nothing ( that was 4 weeks ago) so my recommendation is don't purchase your wood from these guys, they'll take your money and deliver you rubbish wood"

    "Not happy to be fair. Second time using these guys for firewood given that the price is reasonable but this time the wood was quite wet. We havent had one good fire out of 2m of wood having to still use blankets and a heater! They did make some offer of recompense but we still have $150 of unusable wood. Wouldnt have ordered had we been aware so feel a bit let down by that. "

    "They weren't the lowest quote, but they know their stuff, & gave expert assessments of tree-control options which have probably saved me cost overall. An efficient team. There were a couple of mishaps (a broken fibrolite panel, & some driveway lights), but their 'fixit' man Richard rectified these promptly & with no hassle:- new panel supplied & fitted same day, new lights next day. Would I call on them again? Definitely!"

    "Great job done by this team! We had asked for three separate jobs to be done - all weather dependent, but none of them urgent. The weather had been especially unkind since the first tree was cut down, but when the good days came, the guys turned up and did a raft of work including major garden clearing, and rubbish removal, mulch spreading, creating a new pathway in the back yard, new steps and relaying pavers out front. Mark was outstanding in his attention to detail - a real craftsman - and he made an exceptional job of cleaning up after he finished his work. The original quote for the work to be done was good. And the charges for the extra work done was good for the quality. Thanks to all of the team! Keep up the great work!"

    "Ordered 2 m3 of what is described on their website as 'seasoned dry hotmix'. The order and delivery process was easy, and the communications from the driver (Layne) was great; even sent me a text to let me know he was en route.

    Unfortunately the firewood wasn't up to the billing. At least half was so rain sodden that it will have to wait until next winter to be burned. I wasted an hour and a half sorting the pile (it was dropped from a tipper truck) in to two batches; pile 1: burnable but damp and pile 2: sodden. I appreciate that its the middle of winter and Auckland's had a bit of rain. But if you're going to supply firewood you should at least make sure it is dry, particularly if you advertise it as such on your website. I wasn't expecting to spend $200 on firewood for next winter."
