Some things are better left to the professionals. Take forklifts, for example. My dad and I recently did a bit of work up on his farm just out of Sydney and realised halfway through the job we were going to need a forklift. We had an old one that was long past its use by date, so we decided to hire one from the guys at NTP Forklifts. My dad knew of them from way back in the day, and it was pretty easy to organise forklift hire Sydney wide with these guys. No fuss, no stress, and we got the job done much quicker than we would have.
I’ve been a mechanic for the better part of 40 years, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned in all my time it’s that you get what you pay for. Cheap and nasty doesn’t compare with quality, and I’ll always pay for quality. Take Tufflift, for example. These guys specialise in car lifts and hoists, and they’re built to last. I’ve been using the same hydraulic lift for 10 years. In fact, I’ve just bought another from Tufflift after expanding my workshop. It’s rare to find a company that care this much about a product, but Tufflift are far and away the best I’ve come across in my time.
My husband and I just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary, and I’m sure we can both safely say it’s been the best year of our lives so far. We had a lovely honeymoon in Paris, bought our first home in the city, started new jobs that are promising career moves, and I’ve just found out I’m pregnant – what a 12 months it’s been! For our one year anniversary, we sat down and watched our wedding video again. The team at C2 Video shot the beautiful wedding film and watching it again was like being there on the day itself. You don’t even notice the film crew on the day, and yet they never missed a single moment. It was such a joy reliving that day, and we owe it all to C2 Video.

I love a good deal. There are so many rip-off artists out there, and it pays to do your due diligence. Whenever I’m spending a lot of money on a product or service, I like to make sure I’m getting the best deal possible and value for my money. Most recently, that was with Blockout Blinds. My wife and I were renovating our kitchen and the finishing touch was the windows. We wanted blinds instead of curtains as they’re easier to use and clean, and a bit more durable in an area like the kitchen. A friend of mine worked in the industry, and he recommended Blockout Blinds. As always, I did my research and they seemed to come up as the winner. Great prices, exceptional service, and their product range was unlike anything I’d ever seen. The guys came out straight away, measured everything up and gave us a quote on the spot. Done. They’re coming out next week to install the blinds and I couldn’t be happier.
