    "Absolute Cowboys… Do Not Recommend this company! We would not recommend Bathroom Direct to anyone looking for a quality bathroom makeover. We chose to have Bathroom Direct install our bathroom to save us having to manage the project ourselves and accepted that we would pay a premium for this service, a premium price for a premium quality product. In the end, we don't believe we received value for our money and the time we spent chasing up serious issues during and after the installation of our bathroom could have been better spent managing the project ourselves with some considerable saving. It was clear at the beginning that the BD project manager Dave Collins was completely out of his depth, with little or no communication… The BD plumbers apprentice was left on his own unsupervised to plumb the bathroom while the plumber was on holiday overseas. The bath mixer had to be replumbed 4 times due to a) bath mixer/spout back to front, b) mixer set back too far in wall so you could not use the tap, c) the square shaped mixer was not square so it come out of the wall on an angle, the tapware was also scratched so had to be replaced. Consequently, the gib & waterproofing in the area no longer exists at all, just a tile covering the wall cavity! The same issues presented for the shower mixer, this time they had to access the mixer from the hallway, yes they had to cut a hole in the hallway… shower mixer issues… a) the square shaped mixer was not square so it come out of the wall on an angle, b) in an attempt to fix the angle the plumber used a pipe wrench that left teeth marks that removed the plating off the mixer, c) The mixer was replaced & upon inspection before the gib in the hall was replaced we found the new shower mixer was held in place by silicon only, not screwed to any nog or timber framing! After having the plumber back 4 times to rectify the issue we elected to use our own plumber at our own cost to put it right. Sadly, there were a number of other issues with the bathroom which left us seriously unimpressed with the level of service from the team at Bathroom Direct. Dave Collins left part way through the project & a friend of the Managing Director Brent Coutts arrived on the scene to sort out the mess. Things went from bad to worse, clearly, we were not the only ones with issues as BD Les Burdett clearly advised he has these issues all over Auckland. When we contacted the Managing Drector & advised we’re only interested in resolving & finishing our bathroom project Les advised we either accept it the way it was or they would walk away & by the way we were now required to pay the final payment before the “tradesmen” came back. We were shocked & dismayed, this was 2 weeks before Christmas & he was now demanding the final payment before practical completion which was clearly outside of the terms of the contract written by BD themselves. When this was pointed out to them they stood by Les Burdetts stance. Bathroom Direct Project Manager Les Burdett was a bully to the tradesmen & ourselves having my wife in tears on at least two occasions…absolute nightmare... our advice, shop around… paying a premium price (BD were the most expensive BTW) does not mean a premium product… no electrical code of compliance issued, no producer statements from the plumber or waterproofer, no final inspection… just take the money & run… Cowboys…"

    "A couple of days after commencement our Project Manager, Andy, left the company. It soon became apparent that there was nobody else on the staff with his skills (he came back for 1 day to do the final install). Tradesmen often didn't turn up when scheduled, and then turned up at the weekend. Our 3 week (minus shower glass) schedule blew out to 6 weeks. On the plus side, the standard of work was high and the company did their best to keep us in the picture. We are happy with the result, but not the journey."
    Kevin responded:
    "Thanks for your feedback David, and we do appreciate your honesty regarding our service. The disruption caused by Andy's sudden departure did cause us some issues, but I'm pleased that we managed to complete your bathroom to your satisfaction in the end. Enjoy !"

    "Not sure where to start though i wish i had done this a long time ago. My husband and I went to the Showgrounds for Homes last year.I saw Bathroom Direct display of their showers....omg i loved it straight off...asked Amy how much would it cost she said about $25k.....oh man! i thought all i could do was dream about a beautiful bathroom. After a long discussion about it with my husband and a visit to our bank manager, we decided why not let's do it. Made a appointment to meet Kevin at home i was so embarrassed for Kevin to see our bathroom because we had 2 "cowboys" in the past to fix it.Needless to say Kevin was so professional, may me feel comfortable mention about putting the toilet in with the bathroom straight away my husband and I were a bit hesitant. Kevin said if i want a big shower it was they only way we could have our beautiful bathroom. We are so glad that we listen to Kevin.Everything that Kevin said would happen did happen,so very impressed with Bathroom Direct to be told the my bathroom was like the one in a hotel.....feeling really proud. Had a lot of whanau come around and see our new bathroom very impressed when asked how much it cost that was another issue some were shocked but a as far as were concerned we deserve it we worked hard for it. My daughter wants one just like my bathroom. Very happy with Andy Day and his team for everything. I had just had my kitchen renovated too, just my walls needed plastering n paint and Andy got one of his guys to do this for me,so grateful.Could carry on so to you Kevin Cox & Andy Day and his team...and Amy thank you so much for our beautiful bathroom"

    "We had decided to update our bathroom and toilet ( built 1965 ). Our quandary was to find a person to do the work who could be relied on to do a good , professional job at reasonable price. A visit to Bathroom Directs showroom lead to a visit from Alana the design specialist. Resulting in a new design being drawn up. A.visit to the showroom led to selection of all fittings (as suggested by Alana). The time frame given was 3 weeks to finish the job. It was done on time and very much to our liking. The supervisor Andy kept us informed at all times. The tradesmen used were the highest of quality and the co ordination of their work by Andy was excellent. The bath room was completely gutted and refurbished to a very high level. Steps were taken to insure interruption to us was at a minimum and the whole process kept clean and tidy. The end result was exactly as Alana had designed it and as we had pictured it would be. I would without hesitation recommend Bathroom Direct to any one looking for a trouble free renovation at a professionally high level of satisfaction. A 100% pass rate."

    "After visiting other bathroom show rooms I was fortunate to visit Bathroom Direct and meet Alana. She was the first person to show interest in what I consider was a big job but many would consider otherwise. A small 70's unit bathroom that needed remodelling. She came to the unit to view my problems and I was shown a plan and we did some tweaking but in the end went with the first plan. Once work got started the project manager Anton kept me informed on progress regulary and he also came up with aplan to improve my natural light in the bathroom. I could not be more happier with the finished result. As I tell everyone the best room in my unit is my bathroom . If you want a beautiful bathroom go see Alana and the team at Bathroom Direct"

    "From the start of this project on my 45 year old house (2 bathrooms 3 toilets) the designer.project manager and the team of skilled experienced trades men treated the job with great professionalism.. They arrived on time,.on the day agreed,worked unobtrusively,cleaned up at the end of each day and were a pleasure to have in my home. The project was completed on time,on budget and with high quality standards of workmenship. There was excellent office staff committment with great company systems in place to back up the whole process. They have a excellent display of modern bathroom supplies at their East Tamaki address. I readily endorse this company if you are planning any bathroom renovations knowing they will supply quality standards and service. Jocelyn B"

    "We want to highly reccomend Bathroom Direct. Our mouldy, old fashioned 70's bathroom has been transformed into a beautiful,streamlined, modern and relaxing space. We chose to have the whole job completely managed by Bathroom Direct, as we didn't want the everyday hassles that usually accompany renovations. From our initial enquiry right through to sign off , we were impressed with Designer Kevin , and Project Manager Callum. They listened to our ideas and utilising their respective skills created a concept /finished product ,that much exceeded what we could have imagined. Both of them displayed great patience with our lists! The team of tradespeople involved were expert, tidy, and all went out of their way to create a quality finish. Of special note was the integrity/honesty and workmanship of the builder. The project was completed ahead of time.. Right the way through the whole process, we were kept informed and any concerns were courteously attended to , promptly and efficiently.. We appreciated that our budget was respected. Our new bathroom, not only gives us a lot of pleasure, but also adds immensely to the market value of our home."

The renovation, i thought, was relatively difficult but the builder handled it with skill and efficiency. The entire project was spot on time and budget and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone."

He was able to make several suggestions for fittings which were very helpful to us. We were very impressed with the CAD of the bathroom he sent us. It was soley because of Kevin that we went with Bathroom Direct. Our friends and family have been almost stunned to see the transformation of our bathroom!"

Kevin gave us some really good advice right from the start, produced a 3D CAD design of the renovated bathroom straight away and looked after us right throughout the project. We enjoyed that Bathroom Direct was able to suggest solutions within our budget without being pushy. We are very happy with then final result. "

    "The Team at Bathroom Direct ensured all aspects of my new Bathroom project were completed to the highest professional standards, and to my personal satisfaction. From the initial concept and design process, right through to project completion, Bathroom Direct, ensured my requirements were achieved with a minimum of fuss. Associated Tradesmen were Professional, Polite and very helpful. Any concerns I had during the renovation stage were addressed promptly. Sure, the Bathroom was a bit pricey, but as always “you get what you pay for” In conclusion, “Bathroom Direct” managed to transform a small 1970’s era Bathroom, into a well designed, modern, and very stylish bathroom. I think It\'s awesome !"

    "Only criticism was on the electrical side. Whilst the renovation project was completed before time, there was a minor problem with the Under Floor Heating control. This took an additional 4 weeks from signoff before a replacement control was installed by the electrician - we understand he was actually able to obtain a replacement \"off the shelf\" from the supplier when he eventually got around to seeking one! In addition, the electrician never rang before visiting."

    "Very professional and diligent workers. Job was carried out on time, even during the chaos of a less organised renovation of the other parts of the house. Contractors revisited to clean up any snags with no complaints. Cost of job felt expensive at first but it was well managed and well done. Go along to the showroom and be clear about what you would like, to make sure you\'re happy with the design, as you will get exactly what was planned."

They listened to everything we wanted and worked within our tight budget and even allowed us to use our own electrician and tiler. The job was done on time and we can\'t fault it.

He came up with a great use of the space and fit in everything that we wanted. We also had tight time lines as I was going overseas and the job had to be completed by a specific date.

Both David and Peter very approachable and open communicators, it was great to work with guys who not only contributed ideas but also actually listened to and understood what we wanted. Workmanship to a very high standard with a clear pride in their work from all concerned. Callan\'s workspaces were always left immaculate after hours and rubbish/debris was taken away as promised - having plastic walkways laid over carpet for the project\'s duration was an unexpected and appreciated added touch.

    "Kevin Cox was very helpful in quoting us on our bathroom renovation and maded regular contact with us to ensure that Bathroom Direct got the business. The customer service changed considerably once we'd signed the quote and paid our deposit and the project manager did not offer what I would consider to be good customer service. We were lead to believe that the service was from "Concept to Completion" but then found out (almost by accident) that our final inspection had not been completed. When we asked about this we were told we had to sort it out, although in the end Kevin made the appointment with the inspector on our behalf. We had a number of issues with the bathroom both during and subsequent to installation including the fact that chipped tiles were laid and had to be pulled out causing a crack in the wall which was then filled inexpertly with silicon, the lighting was installed in the wrong place, the vanity installed was scratched, the plating on the basin tap started to come off within a couple of months of installation, a copper washer was used on a chrome light fitting and we were not advised that the glass in the windows would need to be replaced or that we would need a pressure regulator installed - as a result the shower tap drips constantly. This is still not fixed. Finally, the clasp holidng the toilet seat to the toilet has broken leaving me wondering about the quality of the components used by Bathroom Direct. I have read a number of other comments about Bathroom Direct online and in most cases the response to the negative comments has been that we have fixed the problem so why is the customer complaining. We chose to have Bathroom Direct install our bathroom to save us having to manage the project and do a number of things ourselves and accepted that we would have to pay for this. In the end, I don't believe we got value for our money and the time I have spent chasing up issues during and after the installation of our bathroom could have been better spent managing the project ourself with some considerable saving. I would not recommend Bathroom Direct to any of my friends or colleagues."

    "Bathroom Direct is a long established company with a contemporary attitude. The designers and project managers insist on dotting all the ‘i’s and crossing all the ‘t’s. The management that I met focus on getting it right. All the tradesmen involved with the project, whether contractors or employees are of a first class standard. Personal competency is expected of course but all these men are friendly, helpful people too. Our new bathroom generates a fair amount of envy and desire in all that have seen it. We have no hesitation in telling them how to get the same for themselves. Just get in touch with Bathroom Direct and get the ball rolling."

    "We found the initial meetings with Kevin very helpful for the design of our bathroom. The work was started on time but due to many issues with the products and the workmanship took almost 6 weeks to complete as opposed to the 3 weeks promised. As time went on there was little or no rapport with the project manager and leaving aside the product and finish issues this would be the main reason we would not recommend this company. He was very defensive and only wanted to get the work completed and not necessarily completed to the customers satisfaction."
    Brent Coutts responded:
    "I have discussed this feedback with our sales team and project manager, and would like to respond as follows. Paddy's main complaint was with a decision by our plumber to place a cistern tap on the L/H side of the toilet to suit the water inlet side of the toilet cistern. After the job was completed, ( within the 3 weeks quoted ) it became obvious that the tap was unsightly and should be moved. We agreed with Paddy, and at no cost to him, proceeded to have the tap repositioned. This work involved a carpenter, the plumber, the carpenter again, then a plasterer and then finally the painter. This extra work took time and needed co-ordinating, not the 3 weeks that Paddy suggests, but it did take longer than we would have liked. We try our best to get things done right the first time. In the words of L.V. Martin, it's the putting right that counts, and I believe we did just that."

    "The team at Bathroom Direct were very friendly and helpful. It was nice not to worry about having to handle the renovation ourselves and leave all the process to them. I would definetly recommend this company to my friends and relatives."

    "We rang Bathroom Direct to enquire about renovating our bathroom in early December. Their designer Kevin was quick to come out to visit and measure up, and his quote and design was shown to us in their showroom which made the project all very clear. A little while later we booked the job for january, the tradespeople were all very professional and tidy, and the job was done well. It was great having everything done for us, as I have organised our previous renovations ourselves and know how much of a hassle they are. The job did have a few hiccups but was all easily fixed by the project manager and was stress free for us. Thanks Kevin and team for a great job, were really happy! J"
    Brent Coutts responded:
    "Thanks James It's a few months since we completed the work for you. I trust you are still enjoying your new bathroom as much as when it was first renovated. Thanks for your comments. I'm sure they will give confidence to potential clients looking to engage my company to handle their own Bathroom Renovations."

    "This salesman did a real number on us. We had quotes from other manufacturers and he assured us that he would match them as long as we did all our business through him. So we did but unfortunately never got anything from him in writing. (You always learn the hard way). When the bill arrived the figures were not only higher than what we had been quoted elsewhere..... they were ridiculously higher. We got in touch with his superior who then outright called us liars (which seems ridiculous to me as why would we buy from them when we already had cheaper quotes). They were rude, unprofessional and we will never deal with them again!"
    Brent Coutts responded:
    "This Lady is being completely unreasonable. The facts are that we sold her some equipment, which an independant builder installed for her. She then found 1 item, a tap, on sale at a merchants clearance sale, and demanded we give her a credit for the difference. We declined but did offer to credit her in full if she purchased the 'on sale' item and returned it to our office as a replacement for the unit we had supplied. This was all too much for her and she posted this negative comment. Dissapointing!"

    "We have worked with Bathroom Direct over a preiod of 5 years and have always found them to be a professional and well managed team. They work extremely well together and relate well to all involved in any job. They listen to clients requirements and strive to meet them. They value all those who contribute to the success of Bathroom Direct and this is evident in their financial management, we have always been able to rely on BRD for payment of services. We would highly recommend Bathroom Direct. "

    "From the initial consultation through to post installation communications the Bathroom Direct sales/customer service team were a delight to deal with, friendly, courteous, understanding and professional. The project manager kept things moving even when certain challenges occurred along the way. Together with the sales team they always gave us options for resolving these difficulties The house was left as clean and tidy as is realistic every day. The quality of workmanship is outstanding and we could not be happier with the final product. Not a cheap option but they delivered on every promise and for us well worth it and highly recommended."
