Testimonials

I found Dave to be good to deal with and reliable

I bought 2 lots of timber from Dave Hindman in Hari Hari about 2 years ago. The totara was a large quantity and was as described. It has made nice stairs treads, window sills and a front door and has been finished in Tung oil. I was also happy with the NZ grown cedar which was used as facings and oiled . I found Dave to be good to deal with and reliable.

I’m glad I found Sawmill Direct

I’m glad I found Sawmill Direct while building my house. My plans were to use pine weatherboards on my new house as cedar prices in Auckland were really expensive. I had a hassle free trade with Sawmill Direct. Timber was delivered on time and after looking at the quality of product, I decided to use more of it around the house and also ordered cedar panels for interior walls and ceilings. Thanks a lot to Sawmill Direct to help me achieve an expensive look for my place at a low budget price…

Just a note to thank you

Just a note to thank you for the 80 m2 0f Matai flooring you sent me. It is now laid and looks amazing in our new home. The comments we get when guests arrive is fantastic. I want to thankyou for holding this for us until we needed it, and organising delivery way up here in Gisborne. The quality of the timber was just as you stated to me. Once again thank you and will highly recommend your company to other people.
