Here a selection:

Good morning. That would be amazing! It’s a much nicer carving than the other one I’ve found. Our plan B is in Whangarei though so would need to know by Monday to be able to get it here on time if needed. We’ll be able to arrange to collect from Devonport. Thanks so much!

Kia ora Goina. It is actually a gift for a dear work colleague of mine , I am currently posted here in Vanuatu. If you could please gift wrap, I’m sure it will add to a lovely presentation.
Thanks for the swift response!

Kia Ora Goina,
Many thanks for your email updating my order and providing me the tracking number. I received the updated tracking number as well. I was delighted to find the poppy keyring as I lost the one I bought in New Zealand early this year and was devastated. Thank you so much for keeping me informed. Something I love about New Zealand is its customer service.
Ngā mihi nui,

I would just like to say on behalf of HLC/Life to the Max, a huge thank you for the Māori carvings we ordered from you. They are absolutely amazing and look fantastic, these will be gifted to ākonga who have completed a 10-week Ākonga programme through our organisation.

So many staff who have seen the carvings so far think they are amazing and we will definitely be purchasing more from you in the near future.
