Contracting feedback

Steve Johnson - Home Owner

Call it the luck of the Irish or just good management – we struck gold. The team from Max EQ, led by Mark Duggan, proved that repair work could be done efficiently if well managed. Any concerns we had were dealt with in a prompt, professional manner and advice that was given was based on experience, sound commercial sense and attention to detail.

Bob and Karen - Home Owners

We were one of many homes on the hill to be repaired after the Christchurch earthquakes. The company assigned to us was Mark and his team at Max EQ. Boy that was our lucky day as throughout the repair process, we have been kept informed and as problems have arisen Dermott and his team have helped above and beyond. A big thank you!

Alistair and Susan Blomley - Home Owners

Our two storey hill home was damaged in the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010. Due to the complexity of the property site and accompanying insurance issues, the road to having repairs started was long and torturous. We became used to delays, excuses and having to very much drive the process. In April 2015, Max EQ began to work on not only repairing our house but also undertaking extensive renovations, including a substantial addition. From the moment they stepped onsite, the whole process flowed smoothly all the way through to handover date - on time, as promised! We have been so impressed with the professionalism of all the Max crew. Everyone has been friendly, courteous and proud of their work. Nothing has been too much trouble, no excuses ever given - just consistent goal driven performance. Access to our site was challenging, yet solutions were always found and the neighbours were kept happy as well. Quite an achievement! We now have our home back better than ever. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Max EQ for your building solution.

Kirk and Emma Foster - Home Owners

I am writing to say Thank You. Max EQ carried out the repairs to my earthquake damaged house early to mid-2015. My main contact day to day was John Costello, Foreman for Max EQ. This man was an absolute legend in every way! Nothing was ever a problem and he had all trades under control (including myself as an electrcian) and was always looking out for my best interests as the home owner. Mark Duggan was the overall Project Manager for my repairs and he was always working hard behind the scenes getting my house the repairs it needed, working with my insurance company and only coming to me for approval when required. Overall, I am so impressed with how my repairs turned out, after all the horror stories you hear from other people, I feel like I struck gold having Max EQ on the case. One very happy customer

Recruitment feedback

Dean Bennett - Downer Site Engineer

Each and every employee provided by Max Contracts has been efficient, enthusiastic and most critically, experienced to carry out the required task. We have used other labour hire contractors on rare occasions where excessive labour hire was required and the caliber of employee provided fell extremely short of the standard we had become accustomed to with Max Contracts.

Ali Damsteegt - Mcconnell Dowell, HR Advisor

We have only recently started working with Max Contracts but they have quickly become one of our go-to agencies. The quality of staff they provide is excellent and we can always rely on them to provide us people with the right set of skills, when we need them. The staff at Max contracts are a pleasure to work with as well, they have fitted in with our processes and systems and are happy to adapt to our ever changing requirements.

Nathan Turner - Fulton Hogan, Senior Project Manager

Without sounding like I am on MAX’s payroll I have nothing but the highest praise for the guys. They are helpful, accommodating and always have a can do attitude to whatever is required. The standard of workmanship and quality of the personnel have been first rate and I would have no problem recommending them to anyone. I will certainly be using them again going forward. I have worked for other main contractors in Christchurch and as Mike has said their H&S awareness and paperwork are up there in terms of completeness and standards. If you need anything else please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mike Mulcahy - Fulton Hogan, FH Civil South

Max Contracts are one of our main sub-contractors at the Christchurch Art Gallery, from the H&S aspect I find Max to be very good, they have very good supervision and involvement in the culture of the site.

Hayden Powell - Truline Civil

We’ve been working with Max Contracts for a few months now; in our introductory conversations with them, they listened to exactly what we needed regarding skilled personnel and about our culture as a company. They have supplied us with some really key quality labour, both temp and perm, in a timely fashion. We’re very happy to continue working with them.
