This email confirms my call of today that the scaffolding is now available for dismantling and removal. Thank you for your excellent service. I will recommend you elsewhere.

Melanie Jones - Studio Manager - South Pacific Pictures

It is with great pleasure that I provide a testimonial for Pro Scaffolding. Recently we acquired a new 1500sqm studio/warehouse with an 8 metre stud. From the time of signing the tenancy to our first shoot day, we had a very short timeline to allow us to fit out the studio to the required specifications, including the lighting grid.

Fortunately, Paul Buffery and his team made the task seem rather uneventful for us as they were willing to work around and above our set construction team – this meant working through the night.

We had existing equipment that was custom built for another building and although it had very different angles and gradients, Paul utilised almost all of the existing equipment which saved us a large sum of money.

We then decided to add to the grid and again, Paul and his team swooped in and had the lighting grid in place and ready to go within 3 days – the overall measurement of the grid is a whopping 700sqm! Further we have required urgent delivery of steel scaffolding for our CYC’s and Pro Scaffolding provided quotes immediately and delivered as soon as the quotes were accepted by us. Thanks Paul – you’re on speed dial!

To whom it may concern

I am writing to show my appreciation for the work of Paul and his boys on our school show Godspell.

Pro Scaffolding had the contract to rig a scaffold from the drawings of our designer, and Paul's expertise in set design meant he had some great ideas and concepts which enhanced our design and made the final job that much more effective. They were not fazed by our director changing her mind (several times) and changed their rig a couple of times, always with a smile and the adage "the client is always right" but in this case, I think it was Paul who was right!

From an empty school hall stage to a set representing the red zone in Christchurch, Paul and his team made the transformation in one afternoon and we are extremely grateful for his expertise.

You should look to hiring these guys at the design stage as well as the construct and make use of their knowledge - I know I will certainly be doing so next time.

Many thanks

Your scaffolding company was called at very short notice (Due to being let down by the usual company) to scaffold inside a 40,000lt Vertical liquid vessel.

This required the erection of scaffolding in a very confined space around an agitator shaft and blades.

Paul and his team member Antony displayed professionalism and attention to detail throughout the job and I would have no hesitation in using his services again.

Cubicon Interiors

We are a building company specializing in Interior Office Design and build.

Recently we were asked to repair an exterior building which required scaffolding the outside.
Through word of mouth I was given a contact at Pro Scaffolding to phone.
They arrived on time for a meeting, the scaffolding was erected on agreed day, they returned the next day to remove a part of it as needed.
Pro Scaffolding were very easy to deal with and I would certainly recommend them to anyone in the industry.

They will be used again by our company.

I would be happy to discuss this verbally if you are considering using Pro Scaffolding.

Yours sincerely

We engaged Pro Scaffolding to provide scaffolding for a major exterior maintenance on our property which is situated on steep terrain in a relatively dense housing area in Auckland. The value of the maintenance work was approximately $17,000. The site posed significant challenges as we required vehicular access to be maintained across a narrow access road used by neighbours, and a complex building which made access to some of the surfaces difficult.
Pro scaffolding provided:
• A competitive quote
• Reliable and very prompt service (commencing during the New Year holiday period)
• Immediate, effective and reliable solutions to the technical difficulties associated with the site
• Very prompt service, minimizing the time that we had to rent the scaffolding.
It was very easy to get hold of the key person, Paul Buffery, when we needed to.
We would recommend Pro Scaffolding without hesitation as an efficient, reliable and problem solving group that is able to meet exacting OSH requirements.

Sarah and Darryl Davis

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did for us over the summer. Although we needed the scaffolding over Christmas and New Year, which was perhaps not the ideal time, you worked quickly, efficiently and very professionally for us.
As value for money goes you were outstanding. You were cooperative with our wishes at all times and cleverly designed the scaffolding to work within our budget.
We are really grateful and will highly recommend you to our family, friends and colleagues.

Here's hoping 2012 is a very successful year for you.

Kind regards,
Sarah and Darryl Davis

James and Kelly Norris

We would highly recommend Paul and the guys from 'Pro Scaffolding' to anyone requiring scaffolding. From the first time we spoke to Paul he was extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. He came to look at the job the very next day and provided a quote that same day. The scaffolding was put up without any fuss and we were very impressed with how safe and secure it was. It certainly made putting up new spouting and painting our two storey house much easier.

Many thanks!!

Ian and Naomi Heap

Many thanks for a prompt and efficient service. Paul and the team are polite and considerate. They ensured that there was no inconvenience to any of our neighbours and did a great job of providing the scaffold on the date agreed. Doing DIY house painting at height was considerably safer with the aid of well constructed platforms, and we were able to complete the job within the time we had scheduled as a result.

Many thanks

I recently contracted Pro Scaffolding Ltd to provide scaffolding at my Mt Eden home for the purpose of painting. I found Paul, the contractor to have a very professional attitude to his work. The scaffold was well built and Paul was reliable and easy to communicate with. The cost of the work was completed within the framework of the quote. I confidently recommend Pro Scaffolding to anyone who needs this service.

Yours sincerely

Dear Paul and Team,

Just a quick note to say thanks for all your efforts and communication while working with us over the past few months. In a time where it seems common for people to give you the run around it’s a breath of fresh air to work with someone who calls a spade a spade and delivers when they commit to something.

All the best for the festive period and we look forward to working with you in the future.

I am writing to recommend a reliable, professional and highly skilled scaffolding contractor for your building maintenance requirements. I know from my time at Crocker Strata Management that finding a prompt and efficient contractor makes the Account Managers job much more productive, so I thought I'd pass this on.

Pro Scaffolding Limited are a company whose exceptional service, friendly liaison and broad skill base are second to none. I have utilised their services on several projects and have found Paul Buffery highly competent in undertaking all my onsite access requirements. Also, Pro Scaffolding are unique in that they can be called on 24 hours a day to attend to any emergency repair (including shrink wrapping a leaking building and ensuring public safety) on behalf of the scaffolding contractor for any project.

Kind Regards,
Michelle Clark


We needed scaffolding to work on a second floor window. The other scaffolding places weren't interested in a small job like mine, but recommended Pro Scaffolding.

I was given prompt attention. The date and time for delivery was agreed and it was all quickly dealt with. The tower was a lot better than I expected – very sturdy. Even the builder was impressed!

Paul and his team can be relied upon to be there when they say and do a great job. I appreciate that even though Pro Scaffolding also service the industrial segment they were prepared to look after the ‘little guy’ too!

The service was excellent.

Thanks guys.

To whom it may concern

We recently used the services of Pro Scaffolding Ltd to provide two fixed scaffolding towers to access difficult areas at a Downtown Shopping Mall with public safety and time management being of utmost importance. The service provided was very efficient and all aspects of the job were handled in a totally professional manner in what was a very difficult environment.

I would highly recommend Pro Scaffolding Ltd to anyone requiring scaffolding services.

On my first day on the job, the Best Boy asked me to contact Paul at
Pro Scaffolding. He said, "you'll want to put his number in your phone,
he's great, a YES man".

This has proved to be the case and I am very satisfied with the job
Paul and his team have done for us and will continue to use them.

The Factory was our biggest theatre show to date - a large scale Pacific Musical that needed a spectacular set to match.

Paul and the team at Pro Scaffolding did the job, creating strong, multi level scaffolding towers and stages that get danced on and jumped all over every night!

We continue to get comments about the set after each performance, and it even got a mention in one of our show reviews. theatrescenes.co.nz had this to say: "Set and lighting designer Sean Coyle deserves special mention. The dramatic impact with his minimalist set, essentially made up of scaffolding and draped pieces of fabric really works".

Well done to Paul and the team and thanks once again for your support!

Excellent job and top quality work.

Everything went very smoothly and the job was done with out any problems or difficulties.

Thoroughly recommended.

Was in urgent need for some scaffolding for my factory unit after the high winds this week caused damage.

Paul and all the team at Pro Scaffolding attended site within 30 minutes of my call and the next day completed all of my scaffolding requirements.

Paul clearly knows the ins and outs of the scaffolding industry and his experience was clear and very professional.

I strongly recommend Pro Scaffolding to anyone. I would not hesitate to use them again.

Excellent company to deal with. We had a job to do at short notice and their service and communication was excellent.

They did what they said they would do which in today's world is a huge plus as far as i am concerned.

We first contacted Pro Scaffolding when we had an urgent requirement which meant we needed scaffolding erected within 24 hours. Paul answered my call and was on site that same day and fulfilling our needs within our 24hour deadline.

His friendly, efficient and prompt attention to our request was fantastic and as a result we no longer need to look elsewhere for our scaffolding needs.

We would highly recommend Paul and his team, their professional manner and willingness to go the extra mile certainly make them a standout company with whom we are more than happy to associate ourselves with.

The service and personal attention we received from Pro Scaffolding was unexpected from the first phone call, listening to what was required, on site visit and recommendations the fortnightly expectations and phone calls and finally the removal and clean up. What we expected to be difficult they made look easy sloping section bridging the door and garage and safe enough to not only paint the house but also change all the windows.
I would have no hesitation to recommend Pro Scaffolding.

To whom it may concern

Pro Scaffolding Ltd

Recently I requested Pro Scaffolding to erect a scaffold to enable me to reach the highest part of our home. Upon contacting the company, a visit was arranged the same day to survey the location and establish what my precise requirements were.

During this visit, a solution was worked out and proposed that would allow me to conduct the work at hand in a safe and secure manner. I received a detailed written quotation the next day, outlining the costs to erect and dismantle the scaffold, hire cost per week and transport details.

Upon acceptance of the quotation, a date and time were established for the scaffold to be erected. The company arrived on time, and no time was wasted in erecting the requested scaffold, which was done in a very professional manner. The scaffold materials used were of high quality. When completed the scaffold gave me easy access to the highest part of the home, and I felt safe and secure working there.

On completion, a date and time were established for the scaffold to be dismantled. Once again, this was done in a quick and efficient manner.

I can confidently recommend Pro Scaffolding Ltd as a solid and reliable supplier, and experts in their field.

Yours faithfully,
J de Mooy
