I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for two of your employees - Craig and Jo. I had engaged your company yesterday for cleaning a tank on my property. Craig was the technician tasked with this work. He not only cleaned the tank, but also helped identify a blockage in the drain and resolved the issue. Throughout the process, Craig was exceptionally friendly, communicative, and demonstrated great skills and problem-solving abilities. I also wanted to specially thank Jo on the coordination and planning side. Despite my short-notice request, Jo completely understood my situation and urgency. She was highly responsive and extremely pleasant to work with in quickly organising Craig's visit. Having people like Craig and Jo represents your company's commitment to service excellence. Their professionalism, competence, and customer centric approach ensured a very satisfactory experience for us. Please do convey my sincere appreciation to both of them. I will certainly be recommending your services based on this experience.
Excellent and professional service. Highly recommended.
Well it’s nice to see customer service is still alive. Firstly Jo answered the phone and her lovely manner was a joy to make a booking for a septic tank clean. Well Troy and Anton arrived and from the get go were obviously very experienced and shared their knowledge of do’s and don’ts of septic tank use. Right to the end when I rang to thank them and Mark answered the phone, yet another lovely person. I can’t recommend this business enough. Thanks again team, we’ll use you again and next time there will be coffee and scones on offer.
The Takeaway team organised and performed a quick and efficient emptying of a full septic tank at short notice, and just after a level 3 lock-down (where work had no doubt backed up as much the septic tank). Friendly and efficient staff who did a first rate job. Many thanks!
“This company is great. They were helpful, positive, and friendly, and did a great job. I would highly recommend this forward thinking, positive and professional company.”
“Such awesome service by the man we had (Ethan) who come to our new house, and went above and beyond to help us clean our septic tank and gave good advice for the future. Thanks for all the help!”
“If you need your septic tank cleaned, these guys are who you need! We called Petes Takeaways and straight away, dealing with Mark on the phone, we knew this was going to be a great service. The driver was really professional and the job was done really quickly, with zero after-work needed by me — the place was spotless.”
We contracted Petes Takeaways over two days to empty a damaged container full of rotting UHT milk. The team (Gareth, Gary and Damion) did an outstanding job of cleaning and clearing the spoiled goods. In fact, they went above and beyond and as plans changed they had to problem solve to find appropriate alternatives. This included the unsavoury task of jumping into a skip bin full of ‘off’ UHT — we never heard any complaints, only solutions. I will be encouraging others within our organisation to use Petes Takeaways when we want a job done right. Thank you for running such a great crew.
“Good People, easy to deal with. Highly recommend.”
Just want to say a huge thanks for the awesome job your team did for us at the Port. It was definitely a headache of a job, but you guys handled it like champs.
“10/10. Mark at Petes takeaways is the man. Our septic lines were blocked, I rang four local plumbers who were all too busy and offered no advice… “but we can come next week." A five minute phone call to Mark and 20 minutes later I had the blockage cleared and we were away! If it wasn't for Mark we would have spent days with no toilet or waste water. Thank you Mark!”
Excellent service thanks team! Highly recommend.
“Top blokes at Petes Takeaways. I called with an urgent need of a septic tank empty. Two minutes later I got a call back saying a guy was on his way. They did an amazing job. You guys are life savers thank you so much!”
I can't recommend Petes Takeaways, Mark and the team enough. My wife and I, plus our extended family have had a horrible few months with the septic tank over flowing and issues with drainage. The Petes Takeaways team has been helpful, informative and their advice is second to none. The problem has now been identified and we are on the way to resolving it. Their care and support for us can't be counted in money. They were so responsive, timely and really took the time to identifiy the problem. Thanks again from all of us.
“Excellent staff. Good atmosphere. Professional workforce”
“I own a beach house with a Septic Tank. Whenever I have had problems with it, I have phoned the lovely guys at Petes Takeaways and asked for their advice. They are just so supportive and helpful, offering spectacular advice on what to do. Believe me I am so grateful for their expertise. Thank you so much guys, you are AWESOME!”
“Friendly and professional services.”
Excellent service thanks team! Highly recommend.
Arrived on time and got on with the job - professionally and all done in a short time.
One of your team came to our property at Oceanview Road, Mount Maunganui, after some work had been carried out by a plumbing company. I just wanted to share some feedback about the team member, whom my husband said was ‘bloody outstanding’! Accommodating, polite, and totally invested in getting the work done. Please pass our thanks on to him and let him know he’s a valuable employee.
Highly recommended. Very polite, helpful and knowledgeable
