Affordable solution backed up by excellent aftersales support

Waikowhai Intermediate School Property Manager Willie Ioelu knows a thing or two about procurement and was blown away by the dedication demonstrated by Harvey Norman Commercial when the school decided to upgrade its heating solution, “I used to manage the supply chain for an oil company so I have worked with a lot of contractors. The service provided by Harvey Norman Commercial was outstanding.”

Willie initially contacted Harvey Norman Commercial for a quote for air conditioning units in reciprocation for recent sponsorship of a fund raiser for a school camping trip, “We appreciated that they had donated some gifts for us to auction, so I included them when I started to look for pricing. They turned up with their installers and walked through the whole school. They were so knowledgeable, and it was a real point of difference over the other companies.”

Harvey Norman Commercial’s solution was the most price competitive too, “They took on board that we were only going to utilise the units for three or four hours a day and found us a solution that was realistic for our budget.”

Willie describes the installation process as smooth, “The installers worked around us and when an internal problem was identified in one of the machines, they came out the very next day to fix it. There have been no problems since, and we have seen a significant reduction in our energy running costs now we have taken out the boiler and the wall heaters.”

Having had such a positive experience with Harvey Norman Commercial, Willie always includes them when he goes out for pricing, “I have used them for office chairs, fridges and freezers. I know that they will back it up with excellent aftersales service. I even recommended them to the school next door. Everyone we have dealt with – sales, dispatch and support – has been amazing. They are a really good team to work with.”
