Good vehicle security installers are a rare breed and hard to find. I’m always getting asked if I can recommend someone outside of Wellington, to which I often point out that Wellington is slap bang in the centre of NZ and a great place to visit 🙂
This ploy works sometimes as I’ve had customers coming form as far away as Christchurch and Hamilton, although no Jafa’s that I’m aware of yet!
On a more serious note I do understand that not everyone can find the time to travel down here, or afford the fuel costs in travelling this far.
Who I recommend:
I’m going to start the ball rolling by stating who I recommend and why.
Note: I am recommending individual installers (not companies where installers can come and go) that I have worked with and have first hand knowledge on how capable they are. If you intend to use them then I’d suggest by-passing the sales team and speak directly to the installer and explain that you want a stealth install 🙂
Bret @ Trends in Hamilton
I worked for Bret at Mobile Alarm Specialist (sadly no longer in existence) when I first arrived in NZ and learnt heaps form him. Very knowledgeable and a good bloke too.
Trends are now selling Cobra alarms too. Hopefully the Website will look better soon (It is currently being updated).
Kishor @ Autowatch NZ in Auckland
Kishor is the owner and Importer for Autowatch NZ. I worked with him when I lived in Auckland back in 2005 and have regular contact with him. Again a good bloke who is very capable and has a good alarm brand on board which can make a big difference to how effective an installation can be.
Feel welcome to add your own recommendations in the comment section.
Note: Remember that part of being a good installer is suggesting a decent alarm/immobiliser, so If you’re going to plug an installer that takes part in Siren Muppetry and other poor habits then I may well question your credibility!
