Neil has been the preferred plumbing contractor for Lagoon Leisure & Fitness over the last three years. We have found Neil to be very reliable and to provide prompt service. In an operation which incorporates six swimming pools and extensive change room and bath room facilities, it is imperative that we can trust our contractor and know that our plumbing situations will be dealt with in an honest and knowledgeable manner.

Centre Manager, Lagoon Leisure & Fitness

Over the past two and a half years we have received the service of Star Trade Services in a variance of forms from plumbing to emergency response for storm damaged buildings and structures. In my experience I have found Star to be the best complete trade services company I have used in my 10 year tenor.

Museum Environment Manager, MOTAT

It is wonderful to have found a plumber that gives us his time and attention for such a reasonable price. His help with our new kitchen just took the worry away.

Steven Moore

We have been using Star Trade Services for a variety of renovation work for a couple of years now and have found the service to be fantastic. Having access to a company with such a wealth of knowledge has helped us on our more difficult jobs. I have no hesitation in recommending their service.

Trevor Hillman
P&T Builders

Fantastic response. I had a water pipe that blew up in the garden, and Neil was here in less than an hour and had it fixed in no time at all, well done.

Neil Benjamin
Freemans Bay

We had been suffering with no pressure in a shower for months. The building manager had told us the problem could not be fixed so we called Neil to put in a smaller shower head. In less than an hour our problem was completely fixed and we did not even have to change anything. Better than we could have hoped, thanks again
