Longroom - Client Since 2013                                  

As a growing business our computer and IT requirements have changed since we started in 2009.

After an initial consultation, Carey put together a great proposal that we were very happy with from both an IT needs and budget perspective.

Carey and his team at IT Trends have looked after us very well since installation of our new system early this year.

We only had only a few minor teething problems (mainly to do with our POS integration) which Carey got on top of and managed superbly.

We have no problem in recommending IT Trends to any other business requiring their services, they are a pleasure to deal with and ultimate professionals.

P & P Plastics Ltd have used Carey at IT Trends since start up and we highly recommend the service.

Someone who not only provides the hardware but is a prompt "Mr Fix It" is vitally important in a small business such as ours and Carey and his team have succeeded in this throughout the 20 years we’ve been in business.

We look forward to continuing our involvement with IT Trends for many years to come.

Papakura Timber Processors - Client Since 1999

We are a timber processing facility and needed a specialised stock system to track timber and processing around our facility.  Carey and his crew grasped what we were trying to achieve and wrote us our own program which interlinks with our accounting system in a short amount of time.  Not an easy task.  We now have the ‘BIG BOYS’ coming to us to ask where their timber has gone. We were very pleased with what Carey was able to do for us which is why we continue to deal with him.  I particularly like the ability to get instant access to Carey or one of his team.  They are always contactable by phone to walk us through a simple matter, able to call out usually within the day if need be, and if something can be scheduled weekends are always a possibility. 

I like to think Carey and his team are BIG enough to do the job (and have good associate people they deal with) but small enough to care and understand our urgency for immediate action.

I wish Carey all the best as his company continues to grow and can see we will be dealing with him for a long time to come.

Vehicle Construction & Maintainence

Vehicle Construction and Maintenance Limited - Client Since 1990                                  


We have dealt with Carey for the past 24 years that we have been in business from the point of our first computer and as we have grown over this time additional computers, laptops, printers etc.

The support and advice we have received has always been efficient and effective, sorting out what our requirements are and providing the expertise and or equipment necessary with the minimum disruption to the business.

They have also suggested from early on that we carry out some preventative maintenance which is our case involved cleaning out the machines as our environment has a lot of metallic dust,  amongst other things and this has proved invaluable as we haven’t had any major failures.

I look forward to continuing to work with Carey in the future.

Debbie Davis - Director
