    "John and his team repiled a sleepout on my property. Very pleased with the service. Spoke to John over the phone and he was friendly and courteous. He quoted a reasonable price for the work and completed it earlier than expected. Would recommend to anyone needing this type of work done!"

    "Very professional from first contact and estimate/quote, through to completion of the work. The guys that did the under-house work were personable and clearly very capable. The work was completed to a high standard and the site was left immaculate when they finished. No hesitation in recommending."

    "Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the team at The Foundation Company for doing such a great job on the re-piling at our house. Everything from the first visits, checks and advice on our options through to communications about our start dates and then the team doing the job itself was extremely professional, timely amd very useful to us as clients.
    The repiling crew were super nice guys, worked hard, were very respectful of the property and us and were really helpful and great guys to work with. We are very happy with the re-piling job and would highly recommend The Foundation Company. Thanks!!

    "John and his team were fantastic. He arrived on time and quoted a reasonable price for the work. When his team arrived to do the work they were incredibly efficient They promptly got on with the work and worked to a high standard, replacing piles over 100 years old. The house remained incredibly clean, no dust or dirt, so they have safe and clean work practices. Highly recommended company."

    "John Wilson and his team were great to deal with. They showed up when they said they would. They explained the job, the issues at hand, and they gave up front quotes. They did what they said they would and they did it well.

    I had John do some repiling work on my kitchen and I really appreciated how reliable and upfront John was throughout the whole process. Highly recommended."

    "I left a message via their website at night - and had a call the following morning. Within the same day, John called by and took a look. After checking the piles out, John advised that there was nothing wrong with the existing piles and no work was required. I was left relieved that I did not have to redo the pilings, but also impressed by John\'s professionalism and integrity. Would definitely use John if I need to in future!"

    "I was really pleased with the work performed and professionalism of John, and Phil who carried out the work. The work was tidy, efficient and caused no serious disruptions for us. Communication was excellent - I always felt I know what was being done, and how long things would take. All rubbish was removed, and the work looks excellent. They were careful with the work as house is stucco and nothing cracked. John was able to give me a quote that worked to what I wanted done as a priority and was able to level the floor where it had sunk. As the first piece of work done on our first home, I\'m happy to recommend John Wilson to anyone needing re-piling and levelling. Thanks."

    "John Wilson and his team did a great job upgrading and strengthening the foundations on my c.1910 villa. During the earthquake a few weeks ago, we could actually feel that the house was more stable than it has been in previous earthquakes. The team were trustworthy, reliable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them and would choose them again for future work."

    "John and his team are the best tradesmen i've ever used. I've had them in three times now for repiling different parts of my house. They're honest, reliable, do great work, reasonably priced, and they stick to their quotes. John called regularly to update me on progress. When I called him between Christmas and New Year with a problem he was out to see the job two days later, and one of his guys was on site the next day, despite them officially being on holiday. You can't ask for better service than that.

    I can't recommend John and his team highly enough.

    "Wow a tradesman who shows up on time, phones every night to update and doesnt go over the quote! Can John think about going into Plumbing? Electrics? Mechanics?
    Great job, guys on-site were fantastic, really neat considering all the dirt and damn quick digging holes!
    John was recomended to us through our building report and we would recomend to others.

    "John's team repaired foundation and installed extra piles. First I tried to hire other builders for the job - most never showed up or disappeared after the first visit at best. Quite a different stopry with John: a telephone call followed by a prompt visit and then itemised quote. Overall, excellent communication from John and team of two well-mannered young people. Job was completed almost on time - that's ok given the difficulty of the job, weather and visits from WCC inspector. Some delays with Building Consent due to extra inspection fees - that was resolved by John at no extra cost and without any fuss. Very satisfied with the job and highly recommend."

    "John and his team did a great job on the partial re-piling for the house we have just bought in Wellington. He was able to complete the work before we moved in, and despite finding that the floors/joists and piles were totally rotten in one room - the final price was cheaper than what we were quoted. John regularly called me to update us on progress, and ensured that the whole job was completed to out satisfaction."

    "We needed a new house repiled and was recommended John Wilson Piling. This is not a trade that people associate with quality work. We expected a chain-saw to turn up to cut through out original hardwood floor boards and the house to be a building site for a few weeks. We are extremely impressed with the quality of workmanship and lack of damage to our property. They went the extra distance to ensure they did a good job. My only comment would be to improve the communication during the process, just by a note after each day to keep us up to date with how things are going. Much recommended."
