    "Terrible terrible guy. Quick to quote you pay the deposit and now it's almost 2 years since he started our job and still hasn't been completed. No communication at all and our gate came thru and it's higher then the fence.

    "Avoid at all costs this guy is hopeless!

    I hired Neville to install a frameless glass fence around our pool in Sept 2015. It's now Oct 2017 and he has still not completed the 'fixes' he promised he would do. The fence itself is nice enough however the whole process was diabolical. Zero communication during the build and constant No-shows from him and his worker Tau.

    The gate was finished around 2 months late and the self closing gate doesn't close! Now to add insult to injury the fence post is rusted through.. I have repeatedly tried to get him to come remedy the gate but once again all I get is promises. Neville seems like a good guy but his work ethic is disgraceful."

    "I'd never use this company again. Neville arrived promptly for the quote and gave me confidence. He said it would take 3 days. It went downhill quickly from there. This job took nearly 4 months; there were a number of no shows, and a large number of issues that required remedial work. Neville gave me the impression that a mini-corrugate fence would be straight forward but his subbies that actually do the work had A LOT of trouble. The corrugate panels didn't line up and their uneven sheets left dangerous sharp edges sticking out across each panel. We agreed a type of latch for the 1.8m gate and something completely different was installed that required us to reach right over the top of the gate. My shorter mother would get stuck on the other side every time. It took so long to get them back to fix everything. At one point Neville gave me some sob story about how Fillipo (the most commonly seen cowboy on my property) had just disappeared with Neville's truck and gear and hadn't been in contact for a few days. What sort of rubbish was that. These guys are terrible, avoid them like the plague."

    "Do not use these cowboys. Nil communication. A number of no shows. Paid 50% deposit. Fence constructed was "ok". Two gates were eventually installed (months late) and were wrong size, not as quoted... and get this....cant be used as they hit downpipes or tap fittings when opened. Have to get in trade person to rectify their stuff ups. You have been warned !"

    "The WORST company I've ever had dealings with. They quoted for 2 small sections of PVC fencing & gates in March 2017. I was initially happy with the quote and paid in good faith the 60% deposit requested to confirm the job.
    In late July after having heard nothing from them regarding a start date and having no reply to emails I phoned. They scheduled the job for the very next week so if you are foolish enough to use them I think the technique is the scream the loudest. At 5pm the night before the date agreed to do the job they attempted to cancel, I was furious and eventually they agreed to send someone. Much to my further shock they did the fence sections but no gates. After another 2 weeks of no communication I got hold of them and they came to do the gates, however they'd put the posts in the wrong place so had to hand one gate swinging in the wrong direction so cannot be locked from inside the fenced area. The job is still not finished on the 14th September, I have sent photos of the incomplete sections and the damage to one panel but again no word. I've paid the final 40% of the quote in order to be rid of them. DO NOT USE THEM OR TRUST THEM

    "I needed 20m of back fence replaced and emailed several contractors for a quote. Neville Thomson Fencing was the first to reply and the next day Neville promptly arrived to quote for the job. Neville during the site assessment struck us as being the most informative and knowledgeable of the bunch that bothered to reply. His contractor turned up on time and was friendly and efficient. Neville’s contractor did a fantastic job and exceeded our expectations for how the job looked and materials used. He cleaned up after the job and was very informative with any questions asked. Neville even fixed our front gate at no extra cost which was very refreshing. I can recommend Neville Thomson Fencing as professional with good quality workmanship as our new fence looks great."

    "Neville gave us the most competitive price for our fence. He then completed the work quickly, to a high standard and left the site clean and tidy. A good job well done."

    "Do NOT use these guys! Zero communication, mess left everywhere, and took a month to do 3 days work. Screwed up the job multiple times and had to return to fix it. Although the finished product is up to scratch it'd not worth the stress! "

    "Neville and his team did an excellent job with our fence and helped us to negotiate with the neighbours. Rain held up the job but in the end it was done well. "

    "We had just moved into a new subdivision and were looking to get a fence put up asap. After emailing a few people for quotes, we decided to go with Neville Thomson Fencing. They were the first to respond and most eager to come and get the job done.

    When comparing the quotes Neville put more detail in, and seemed the most professional of the responses. In terms of price they were at a slight premium but the end product warranted it.

    They could impressively start 5 days from confirmation, and that was the deciding factor. On the job he had a couple of guys doing good work, Filipo in particular excellent. Great speed and attention to detail, and the end product has has been complemented a number of times. For a relatively simple fence, that is impressive. Neville has been easy to get hold of and good to deal with. I have recommended them to others in the area as our experience was very good."

    "Highly recommend. We recently had our front fence done (all 52 meters of old wooden fence, replaced with Stratco Good Neighbor Fence ) by Neville Thompson Fencing and thought the services were great,very accommodating and the price very competitive. The team was very professional and efficient - carried on working in the cold and a bit of rain just ensure the job was finished in time. Communication before, during and after the job was clear and they even went out of their way to suggest (aesthetically) a better way of fencing the property compared to what we initially thought was a good idea, even if it made the work more difficult. The result: a clean, solid, elegant fence line. We are really thankful to Neville, Tau and his team for a job well done."

    "Neville Thomson was recommended to us as a preferred installer by Chris Hickmott of Boundaryline Fencing who have branches in Auckland and Christchurch .I contacted Neville Thomson Fencing and he was prompt in responding and offered quotes for two different options we were looking at. He also gave us two addresses to view his work as a sample, which we had a chance to see and approve. We had requested for another quote from a different builder as a comparison for our preferred fencing option and opted to go with Neville Thomson. Following this he was easily accessible and responded to our phone or email queries A 50% deposit was paid before commencement of the job and the work was started within 3 days of payment. His off sider Dave, was a friendly, hard working trades person with attention to detail and worked tirelessly through bad weather. The job was done within the stipulated time frame and to our entire satisfaction. I would certainly recommend Neville Thomson and Dave to anyone wishing to have their fence installed or repaired."

    "Neville erected a side fence and a gate at the courtyard in my property. when I rang him to make a quote, he turned up at my place punctually and showed me a sketch and picture of the fence he was going to build for me. He is very professional and knowledgeable; he in fact gave me a very wonderful advice on the design of the fence. He supervised the work closely; he checked the work progress regularly, which gave me peace of mind. He had a professional staff of workers who produced a very brilliant and marvellous work, a kind of quality workmanship that exceeded my expectation. Neville even provided a superior quality of material for the whole job. When the work was completed, Neville signed off the project in a very professional manner. Now, the fence and the gate completely matches the style of my property and has become a valuable selling point. I strongly recommend Neville to everyone who needs building fence and gate. Thank you, Neville; I wish you every success in your business. ."

    "The job was started on December 27th 2014 and its happy anniversary to the worst experience of continuous ****ups by inexperienced people and guess what its still not completed.

    "Horrible Horrible experience!

    Stay away from this fencing company at all costs. The 4 day job (as we were originally told with two workers it should take) took over 6 weeks, 20+ phone calls and 10+ emails to complete. Workers would turn up once in the week for 2,3,4 hours at a time after numerous phone calls/emails. Luckily we paid our 70% deposit before the job commenced so we were 'hooked' into the atrocious service from the get go.

    Originally Neville turned up promptly for the quote and the quote was 'reasonable' so we went with his service, the job started 2 weeks late (and as we had our previous fence removed by a specialist removal company we had to kennel our dog for extended periods of time whilst waiting for the new fence to be erected). There where two occasions during the post concreting process where the building contractors rushed away from the job not checking the plumbness of the posts in the fresh concrete. Had I not double checked (and fixed) the posts the end result would have been crooked as hell! Stay away from this fencing company (if you can call these jokers a company - more like disorganized baboons) at all costs. The sloppy workmanship will make you wish you never hear of them in the first place"
