Name and Area:

Neel Thompson - Exceed Palmerston North & Manawatu

Tell us about yourself:

I was born and raised in the rural township of Marton, where I have also raised a family with my wife of 33 years, Anne-Marie. Living in Marton allows us the perks of a rural lifestyle but still offers the benefit of short travel too main centers and major North Island destinations.

Why you joined Exceed?

Prior to taking up an Exceed Franchise, I spent 35 years in the pet food industry. I was looking for an opportunity to take up a new challenge and utilize my ability to work with a wide range of customers offering my experience in home maintenance and customer care.

What do you enjoy about being a Franchise Owner?

Coming from a customer focused background, I get immense pleasure from ensuring I meet customers expectancies and enjoy watching consumer confidence grow in our EXCEED brand. I work closely with other Franchise operators around the country who offer solutions to problems, views and support.

Tell us a fun or random fact about yourself:

I am a keen motorcyclist and have ridden competitively and recreationally, extensively in and around NZ. I have been fortunate to have been able to ride overseas into other countries including the Australian outback, Harley's in USA and recently completed a 21 day off road highland tour of Vietnam. Diving, hunting and fishing round off my other interests and pursuits

Testimonials from Customers

"Prompt, efficient, excellent job done. Best tradespeople I've dealt with both from a workmanship and personality/attitudinal point of view. Quick response, arrived on time (pretty much), good positive attitude, polite and cleaned up after the work was done. Happy to pay the invoice right away as good service deserves reciprocation. I will 'tell 10 friends'! - Colleen

"I rang for a quote, the follow up was quick, he arrived to do the quote and he even texted to say he was on his way, got the quote. He was very helpful, our windows are really old he gave me a rough idea of how. I was happy so before the end of the day I had received the quote by email I had a query, he rang me back during that day. The day of fitting went well no dramas and they cleaned up, I could hardly tell they had been. We are really pleased with end result and I am not having a cold daughter on me while sleeping. Very professional did exactly what they promised - Margaret

"The installer arrived promptly, told the order in which he was going to do thing and then did a very good job of it. He talked to me about the job before he left to make sure I was satisfied and upon leaving left my home clean and tidy. Exceed were great. From my initial contact with them, first at the home show and then with Neel I was confident that the job would go nice and smoothly. Installation was completed within a few days after we accepted our quote". L Gale
