“I just wanted to drop a quick message and say thank you. This year I’ve renovated my house and subsequently have worked with lots of tradies. Collins Plumbing is the third plumbing company that I’ve dealt with during this time, as I was yet to find one that I got on with and would simply get on with it and didn’t try to rip me off either. You guys sent me a quote when I asked for one, the plumber turned up at the time which was agreed and the invoice was supplied the day after the work had been complete. This is professional and efficient and is what I was expecting to be the ‘norm’ prior to starting my reno. Believe it or not, ticking these boxes is too hard for some plumbing companies, (who shall remain nameless), until I found you guys. I would like to extend my utmost thanks and praise to all involved, and I will totally recommending you to peers and colleagues in the area when they’re in need of plumbing services. Thanks heaps.”

“Quick email to say a big thank you for the great heating advice and installation of the radiators. It is already making such a massive difference to our enjoyment of the property now that we aren’t freezing especially not worrying about the kids overnight! Your workers were fantastic too and I’ve already recommended your company to several colleagues who are looking at heating options.”

“I have moved into a new property and have had to call them for some advise on gas-fitting jobs around the property. They were very trustworthy and have given me advice on the best way forward in order to save money. I will definitely use them when we renovate the bathroom and for all ongoing maintenance. A pleasure to deal with.”

“I know that if I use a Manfred/ Collins design then I can install with confidence that when the client turns the system on there will be no dramas and unexpected outcomes pertaining to the running of the heating system. That it will do what it has been designed to do, be an energy efficient heating and potable hot water system, that gives a warm, comfortable atmosphere to the dwelling and most importantly, that my clients are happy with the total package I have installed. Also the 100% back-up I receive from Manfred at Collins and Bosch is outstanding.”
Marti Smith – owner operator, Heated Ltd, Queenstown, Bosch Partner
“I have known Manfred since 2003 when he first optimized a Diesel powered Home Heating System for me. I had dealt with several other parties before Manfred none of whom could match his expertise in resolving issues and optimizing the system. In my experience Manfred relies on the scientific approach when providing advice on heating systems. I have found his knowledge and experience unmatched and have no hesitation in recommending Manfred to anyone who is interested in quality reliable advice on heating systems.”

“The Central Heating System designed and installed by Manfred at The Brothers Boutique Hotel, Dunedin has been an instrumental part of our success. Guests arriving in our 1920 refurbished stately house are met with the lovely ambient warmth which provides a very welcoming introduction to our place. What has been very important to me has been Manfred’s continual support in helping with the operation /setting of the boiler from one year to the next with unwavering enthusiasm. He is someone you can trust and depend on and I have no hesitation in recommending him in whatever dealings you may have with him or his business.”
Rod Mc Meeken – Owner/operator of “The Brothers Boutique Hotel” Dunedin
“During November 2012, and after an extended period of issues with our older hot water boiler unit, (which was being maintained by a previous plumbing company) Collins Plumbing and Gas was approached to review the existing problems and make a recommendation as to how they would address our on-going problems.
The review by Manfred Dirr of Collins Plumbing and Gas came back that the current unit had been poorly installed, was at the end of its life and that in essence to continue with the unit was basically ‘pouring good money into a hole’. Whilst the replacement was a costly exercise it was decided that the recommendation made by Collins Plumbing and Gas was correct and it was decided to go ahead and replace the boiler, condenser and hot water holding tank.
Collins Plumbing and Gas recommended the use of a new model Bosch Gas Boiler with improved condenser capability. The result had been simply outstanding, no longer do we run out of hot water after just a few showers, but of most interest is the reduction of gas used to heat the water. The original unit used approximately 90kg’s of gas a month (that’s right 2x 45kgs cylinders costing $210 a month), since replacing the unit in November 2012, 3 months has passed and we have used only the same amount – 90Kg, so a reduced gas consumption.
We would l like to say thanks Manfred and Collins Plumbing and Gas, a job well done.”

“I just wanted to say Thank You for the fantastic experience I had with Collins regarding the recent installation of my cooker. Luke did a great job for me.
In particular, I wanted to thank you personally for the exceptional service you provided. I had had a bit of a run around with this installation job (long story!) but after it was recommended I come to your organisation for help, you lifted a weight off my shoulders, reassuring me by giving me all of the advice I needed, answering my questions and solving all of my problems by arranging everything; even arranging for the old cooker to be removed on the same day as the installation of the new one. Your wonderful organisational ability led to everything going smoothly for me, and having everything achieved in one day made it so easy for a working lady like me who can’t be at home at the drop of a hat. I had a fantastic experience with your organisation, and I will absolutely be recommending your company to my friends and family. Keep up the great work!!“
“We have recently employed Collins Plumbing to install gas central heating and were very happy with the result. They were efficient, good to deal with and very competitive on the quote. We would happily recommend them.”

“Your company has been such a pleasure to do business with – from the friendly person I spoke to on the phone when I first called to Tony, the plumber and gas fitter who came to do the job I needed doing last week.
I couldn’t be happier with the service you guys have provided. After experiencing my fair share of duds, it’s good to know there are still top-notch companies like yours out there.”
Megan McChesney – Kingsland
“Fantastic friendly and professional service. Tony, the gasfitter was great – very tidy job and done on time and within quoted budget. I cannot speak highly enough of Collins Plumbing. A breath of fresh air compared to others who never even bother to turn up!”
“I ordered a Brivis Central heating system from Simon @ Collins Plumbing to replace an old unit that had passed its used by date. Not only did Simon and Simone action all correspondence promptly and professionally, nothing was too much trouble when the job was carried out and I am very happy with the end result, What’s more the job was completed very promptly before the cold weather set in. I unreservedly commend Collins Plumbing for a job sell done and for excellent, friendly customer service.”
“Would certainly recommend Collins Plumbing & Gas – they are a great company to deal with if you want prompt, efficient service!”

“We are Property Manager’s who require the services of a wide range of contractors. Our clients are as varied as New Zealand Transport Agency, Vodafone, The Office of Treaty Settlements, Telecom and the like.
Earlier this year Simon Collins approached me to see how his skill set would make our job easier and we were happy to use him on a trial basis. All I say from the work done to date is WOW! He stands out above others for a number of reasons, the following is an example of what he achieves regularly. Within one hundred minutes of receiving a job (by email) he has it completed, and the invoice is emailed to me, the tenant rings me up to thank me for the great service!
Very professional, efficient and a pleasure to deal with – we look forward to working with Simon in the years ahead and would recommend his services to anyone.”

“Collins Plumbing and Gas and I have had a business relationship for the last 2 years. I have always found them to provide a quality and timely service on every occasion I have used them. For me and my customers (both owners and tenants) this had been a great success as the problem has been fixed quickly with little fuss and expenses. Without a doubt I would recommend Collins Plumbing and Gas to anyone requiring quality plumbing or gas work in the Auckland region.”
