Our Testimonials

  • Thrilled with the result
    "The team at Versatile Whanganui have been stellar, showing flexibility and resilience through the challenges of Covid restrictions, lockdowns, and supply shortages. From initial sales consult, through to key hand over, communication was clear, pain points were worked though, and any issues that arose were immediately seen to. Having a dedicated project manager as a point of contact throughout made my wife and I feel as though we were in good hands. Both he (Nick) and the contracts manager (Anna) were prompt with replies and patient with our (many) requests and changes. We're thrilled with the result and our AirBnb guests have also given flawless feedback on the quality of the finished product. We want to say thanks again to Warren, Nick, Anna, Mat and the whole Versatile Whanganui team. Cheers!"

  • Our builder was world class!
    "Couldn't improve thing - we had the best sales agent and our builder was world class. Tony was an awesome communicator and he always worked in with us as a family, he was great. The design is great, I loved how you tailored a product to meet our needs, but also reassured us. We would use Versatile again in a heartbeat - a great company. I cannot speak higher of the Wanganui Team, we have told all our friends that we used you guys, and often rave about you to anyone who will listen lol. Tony our builder is an amazing ambassador for Versatile and you are lucky to have a skilled passionate builder and all round great guy. I had not meet Tony prior to the build, but he reassured us and gave great advice. Tony worked around our family and animals, he was polite, friendly funny and it felt like I made a good friend. Definitely I would use Versatile again."

  • Matt and Warren are the best guys that I've dealt with ever!
    "Matt and Warren are just fabulous to deal with - nothing was too much trouble for them and they always made me feel like I was the number one person they had spoken to that day. Having done another house build and renovations before, I can definitely without any hesitation say that Matt and Warren are the best guys that I've dealt with ever. Matt and Warren are the most fabulous representatives of Versatile.
    I must also mention that Diane and Jeanine in the office were great to deal with too. Communication was excellent."

  • Great stuff!!
    "We have four Versatile buildings on our property, all very different in their build type and usage. Machinery sheds, boatshed, chemical storage bay, workshop, double garage for my wife’s art studio/workshop, etc. We have never had any issues and any problems are always solveable. This is our third kit set build and we are considering another kit set build at the end of year.

    We are happy with all parts of the process with the Wanganui team - you can’t fix what isn’t broken. Any questions regarding the process have been explained more than adequately. Great stuff!"
