Good morning Nathaniel

Thank you so much for the super job that you have done on our carport. We are delighted with it.

Your team was efficient and capable and it was super to meet Joshua who is clearly as enthusiastic about the product as you.

Many thanks,

Dear Kobus

A heartfelt "Thank you" to the team (Deon, Ricardo and Michael) for the immaculate workmanship and for making sure that the fence and trellis was exactly what I was looking for in the final outcome.

I was very anxious in the beginning but all turned out well and I am very pleased with the results and final outcome.

A special "Thank you" to you for facilitating the project and for your calm manner and reassurance and professional attitude.

Kind regards

Dear Jerome, Kobus and Shalom

Firstly – thank you for your awesome service. My "pergola" looks awesome.

Also – please extend my heartfelt thanks to the installations team – the gentlemen arrived just after 13h00 and then load shedding hit us at 14h00 until 17h05. They immediately got to work and finished up quite late.

They are amazing !!!! They deserve extra credit for their commitment.

Kind regards

Dear Kobus

Thank you for coming today to discuss the storage options with me for our shed. We are very happy with the shed and how your team worked both with the fence and shed.

It has been a pleasure dealing with you.

I will send the sketches through to you for the shelving.

Thank you again.

Kind regards

Baie dankie Shalom!

Ons doen dit want jul almal wat by Timbacore werk "rock". As almal se diens so vriendelik, effektief en proffesioneel was, sou SA die beste land in die wêreld gewees het.

Ons het onlangs 'n transaksie by Timbacore gedoen vir 'n doelgemaakte Wendyhuis.

Dit was regtig vir ons 'n aangename proses om met julle besigheid te doen. Shawn is duidelik passievol oor sy werk en 'n goeie verkoopsman – sonder om "pushy" te wees. Baie professioneel is die gedagte wat by my opkom.

Ewe professioneel was julle span wat gister die eenheid by ons huis kom opsit het. Ook die dame wat die telefoon beantwoord het die twee keer wat ons geskakel het was regtig vriendelik en baie behulpsaam.

Baie geluk, julle het regtig 'n skitterende span!

'n Mens is so geneig om net op slegte diens te reageer, dat ek gedink het ek sal 'n slag ook goeie diens onder bestuur en die eienaars se aandag bring.

Email received 14/05/2017 from JANE & MICHAEL MIDDLETON

Good morning Nathaniel,

Michael and I are absolutely thrilled with the magnificent Timbacore Wendy house you have constructed for us. The finished product has way exceeded our expectations.

It was a pleasure dealing with you throughout the process. You were very professional, visiting our home, listening carefully to our brief and then guiding us on what could and couldn't be done. We were most impressed that you insisted we visit your timber yard to see the structure for ourselves, before erecting it 'in-situ' – a very necessary step in the process to avoid disappointment or misunderstanding.

Your friendly staff were not only efficient but highly skilled.

Thank you once again for your excellent workmanship. We will certainly be recommending you to friends and colleagues.

Hi There

Just wanted to drop you a line to say THANK YOU! I know there was an initial "miscalculation" on our koi pond deck but this is where the true professionalism of a company shines through.

Not Once did I feel that your team were unhappy to have to re-do some parts. Kobus was absolutely professional in his attitude and the team were excellent as well. You can be very proud of your guys.

You stand out head and shoulders above almost every company that we have ever had working on our property, and I will highly recommend you to anybody that requires any of the services your company provides.

I have unfortunately forgotten the name of the gentleman that did most of the work, but he was in every way a gentleman and did an excellent job. Well Done !!!

Kind Regards

Dear Mr. Roberts

I hope this email finds you well.

I write this email today not only as an exceptionally happy client but a grateful one as well. We are young, new home owners and my husband and I are doing a lot of the reno work ourselves. We have dealt with a few service providers over the past year and it saddens me to say, but most of them can only be called suppliers because they definitely do not deliver a service.

I would therefore like to thank Igmanuel your sales consultant who gave us not only great advice but great service, Jerome who confirmed our order is ready and Shaun who confirmed delivery, the same goes for Jack and his assistant who delivered our wood today. It was amazing to get great service from the first call through to delivery. Our order was not that big but we were treated like your biggest clients.

I don't know what you are doing as an employer, but please keep doing it. Your entire team is friendly, professional and down right amazing!!

I will definitely make use of your services again and tell everybody I know about it!!

Kind Regards
Charne Burger

Ek wil julle net bedank vir die pragtige huisie wat julle vir my dogtertjie gebou en opgerig het. Sy put ure se genot daaruit.

Julle kan met graagte die foto's op julle webwerf plaas. My dogtertjie is baie trots op haar huisie en het al teepartytjies met maatjies daarin gehou.

Die vakmanskap en diens was uiters goed en profesioneel. Die verkoopsman het ook uit sy pad gegaan om ons te akkomodeer, aangesien ons haastig was met die installasie omdat ons op pad was met vakansie.

Die 3 persone wat die oprigting gedoen het, was ook baie vriendelik en het baie netjies gewerk.

Ons waardeer al die moeite wat daarin gegaan het.

Hi Nataniel,

Thanks for your email.

I want to say that I am so impressed with many aspects of Timbacore:

1) The excellent quality of workmanship in the product itself.

2) The excellent service I have had from Jerome. When I have called, he has been able to supply me with answers to specific questions especially of a technical nature.

3) The installation team were also excellent. I learned that one of the team members has been with Timbacore for 17 years (I think that was the figure). This says to me that you value long term relationships in business and this accounts for both product excellence and service excellence.

I told Jerome that if there is anyone in the City Bowl who is thinking of purchasing a shed, that he can give them my mobile number and I will show them mine.

Best Wishes,

Dear Mr Roberts

It is with immense appreciation that I would like to thank your company, Timbacore, and salesman, Josef Geldenhuys, for the wonderful Timbacore products that were erected at the Montessori Children's Activity Centre during the Kamersvolgeskenke event, from the 25-31 October.

The jungle gym was especially popular, but the public also made use of your benches and tables.

Our school bought a jungle gym about five years ago (not from Timbacore) and I can sincerely say that the quality of your product supersedes the one we have at present by far. We were also impressed at how quickly your jungle gym was erected and the sturdiness of the product, without concrete being used to secure it into the ground.

We would love to be able to purchase many of your products in the future and will recommend your company to all other Montessori schools.

Hi Josef

Re your installation per quote #JG00526.

Just to let you know how impressed I am with your installers who finished my entire job today (with a bit of overtime).

Apart from being a retired, niggling Chartered Accountant by profession (& accountants often drive me crazy they're so conservative!), I am fortunately also a serious DIY koning doing virtually all of my own woodwork, plumbing, building & electrical work, so whenever I engage a contractor I immediately fear the worst. In the case of my pergola, I decided that I had to take the chance simply because my “handlanger” younger sons are too busy at Stellenbosch varsity at the moment to help me and 6m poles are just too heavy to lift & install on my own!!

I enjoyed interacting with your team & exchanging ideas on positioning of the poles, brackets, etc, but mostly I enjoyed watching them all working as if they really enjoyed their jobs. It's not often that this occurs in any profession.

Please pass on this praise to their superiors because they really do deserve a pat on the back.

Well done & kind regards,
Ed Teare
