Many thanks to Taxi Trucks Ltd for their AWESOME service! To Donna in the office for her friendly,helpful service and doing her utmost to get us from and to our destination when we wanted.

To Vlad and Fraser who arrived on time and for their very careful handling of our furniture and belongings. Nothing was too much trouble for them!

Hi there … Just wanted to say that the guys who moved us were awesome. They were incredibly obliging and very hard working and made our move so much easier than it could have been. Thanks and regards CHRISTINE LOCKIE, Finance Redfort Group Limited

Hi there. We have been in our new house for 2 weeks now and just getting around to settling down to some necessities. One of these necessities is to email and thank your company for the great job done in moving us on the 18th June from 2/8 Anson Place to 30 Ngataringa Road Devonport. 1. I organised the move the same week which did not give much notice for the company and it was booked for the Friday of that week which was great. (Terry was very acommodating) 2. The communication was good and I liked the Quoting Tool on the website as it reiterated to me what I had to move – it always seems less than you actually have! 3. Although the boys were faced with some challenges on the day with changes in people’s plans etc, again the communication was clear and although I was also able to fit in with a change of time, the boys were prompt and moved things efficiently. 4. The most noticeable aspect and the one I would like to commend highly was the attitude of the lads moving the furniture. We had Vy (unsure if this is spelt correctly), Jessie and Terry, and all were superb with a sense of humour and a respect even when things got tough in that my keys to the new house were included by mistake in the truck!!! (By me I might add!) The boys were incredibly capable and I marvelled at the strength and skill in negotiating what I now know was not an easy access from the front door down steps to the truck at the Anson Place end! (Vy’s arm span and therefore the ability to carry a queen bed from one end to the other was amazing!) 5.The price was good and the need for the company to change the time of the move was taken into consideration even when the job took a little longer than I expected. I would like to extend my thanks to all of your staff for the reasons above and to pay particular attention to Vy and Jessie for being a credit to your company. I will recommend the company to friends and use the Taxi Trucks agian in the future! Regards, Karen Upton.

“I was very impressed with Taxi Trucks and especially the two removal experts Vai and Aaron. They worked really diligently and took a lot of care in handling some quite fragile and expensive items. The truck was packed and tied down expertly and the delivery was made without breakages and property damage to the premises. I heartily recommend using Taxi Trucks and if you are lucky enough to get to use the services of Vai & Aaron, I’m sure you will be as delighted as I was.” Preston F Camp 23 Korora Road, Oneroa

… Vladimir & Fraser were great burly men. I heard ur commercial on the radio this am…every word is true. Thanks for the great service. Vickie

Hi Terry, I would just like to say thank you to you, Paul and Mitch for the great job you did in arranging/moving the panel parts from our office in Grafton to our warehouse in Mt Wellington on Thursday. It was a pleasure to deal with you in your efficient manner and not have any surprises when the invoice arrived. Paul and Mitch were excellent in moving the heavy parts from the various locations within our office. The were pleasant to deal and nothing was a problem. They were very careful with the parts and made sure before they left that they checked with my colleague (as I had to leave the office) to make sure they had collected everything before they departed. Our contact at the warehouse was very impressed with them and the way they dealt with the staff at the warehouse. Thanks very much for a stress free move/relocation of some very heavy items. Regards, Lisa Lisa Gilkes Project Administrator, Process Automation ABB Limited

On the 7th of August you sent out a team to do a move for me. I have to say what a nice bunch of guys and super service it was a slightly difficult job and I was going to tell them to leave this massive and very heavy desk outside (after a few attempts to get it in)but they went at it took the doors off and sweated it out to get it in. Top Team ! Thanks Cherie Buzz a Basket

Hi Donna I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the two men who helped me last Friday – If you could pass on my gratitude again would be great. They were AMAZING, and worked solidly the entire day. I don’t think we all expected that I had so much stuff and not an easy task getting the goods out of one house and then into the other. They were both fantastic and very friendly, couldn’t have done it without them. So happy to have been recommended your services. Thanks Again. Kind Regards Toni Mitchell Production Manager .

“Dear Taxi Trucks, today you moved my 60 year old Aunties belongings from Ruawai Rd in Mt Wellington to King Edward St in Mt Eden. My Aunty was evicted at short notice following her recent heart surgery so all her belongings were chucked into various boxes, bags and suitcases. I would just like to thank you and tell you how very impressed I was by the young men that moved her stuff. They treated her belongings with respect and took time to point out to me that there were cleaning products and perishable foodstuffs in the load before they very neatly packed everything into my storage shed. The landlord at Ruawai Rd played a lot of games about what times and days were appropriate to do the move and I am aware that she had to change her booking several times. Thank you for being so polite to my Aunty at a very trying time, and for taking such good care of her belongings during the move.” Thanks & Regards Marie Hansen

“I wanted you to know how impressed we were with the service we had from Taxi Trucks on Monday. Donna was so helpful with my enquiries. She had to endure several phone calls and did so with a lovely friendly manner. The boys who did the move for us were so efficient and helpful too. You offer a great service. Many thanks.” Louise Weir Interior Design MDINZ

I wanted to thank you for the exceptional service I received from Taxi Trucks last week. Needing a fast move with not much notice over an Easter long weekend was a pretty hard ask for any company. Not only did you do the job, but were enthusiastic about it. The truck and men arrived on time, were very obliging and accommodating, and did a fantastic job delivering everything safe and in one piece. All I can say is a big thanks to you and your team for a job well done. King regards, Sarah Huston

Hi, My wife and I would like to express big thanks to Vai and Aaron for doing an awesome job for us yesterday. They worked hard out from start to finish, were perfectly polite, and everything got to the new house in perfect condition. Thanks very much and keep up the great work. Cheers, Chris & Amy Maclean Chris Maclean CEO Maclean Computing Ltd.
