“Hi David, Antoinette and team,
We would like to thank you so much for your professionalism.
The concreting team were very courteous, friendly and approachable and you have both been very helpful and supportive. We would definitely recommend A Better Driveway to anyone that needs a job well done.

“Hi David and Antoinette,
I just want to say a huge thank you for the brilliant job you have done on our driveway and paths. I have to be honest I got a little frustrated with the change of dates due to the weather and thought to myself: “Hey David this is my driveway not yours.” The fact is I am so glad you treated our driveway as if it were your own.
Your fussiness and pedantic attention to detail is something that I really value and I can truthfully say that you are an incredibly good and safe company to deal with. You also didn’t try to over sell either which is absolute integrity at its best.
On the contrary, I have been observing the work currently underway on one of my neighbour’s driveways and have been absolutely horrified at the slip slop approach. There has not been the attention to detail that your crew gave. Your employees are just as pedantic as you in regard to ensuring that nothing is left to chance.
I want to say David that you are the ultimate professional and I am glad we chose “A better Driveway” to do our work.

“Hi David, Still loving our exposed aggregate driveway that your company did for us however many years ago, and that you cleaned in the last 12 months or so. Could you please give us some advice on which type of water pressure cleaner we should buy to maintain its appearance? Karcher or Gerni, petrol or electric, power output, etc?
Thanks. Katie & Neale, Essendon.”
“Like anyone having building works carried out on their own property I was nervous. I needn’t have been with A Better Driveway. The driveway looks fantastic; but what also makes ABD shine out over the rest of the competition is the level of detail which goes into all aspects of the job. David listened during the quotation, provided alternative suggestions, and delivered an extremely detailed quotation.
Prior to commencement of actual building works you’re provided with a complete breakdown on the stages of the build, what to expect in each stage, but also an introduction to each of the people working on-site – so they’re not just random people turning! I also found that not only could you talk with the main supervisor on the day (Shaun), but all of the other guys were polite (handing in mail that was delivered).
We had a few changes during the pour process, but this was only a marginal cost increase; so overall we’re very happy customers!

“Fabulous job, no hiccups , great communication, very professional, suggested options I hadn’t even thought of (as in improvements to my original thinking), I’d recommend you to anyone & already have. Three families in the street are now saving to have similar work done. Cheers Joni

“Hi Antoinette When I got home last night I saw the terrace finished and could you thank the guys because it is looking just wonderful! It has been such a seamless experience and we would recommend your company to anyone. ”

” Hi David and Antoinette,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the exceptionally good workmanship and professional service. We are delighted to see how well the driveway has been done. Especially we would like to thank Lou and Chris for getting the levels right in the front. It was not an easy task and Lou was very active in ensuring that it was done right. Also it was an absolute pleasure to chat with Lou on many things. We would also like to thank Lou’s son John Claude for carrying out very hard work in the background. We wish him well with his future endeavours. Michael did a wonderful job, first by washing the concrete and later today by saw cutting the concrete driveway in an aesthetically pleasing way. Antoinette did a wonderful service by providing us with all the necessary information and maintaining the essential link between us and you. So, we would like to sincerely thank her for that.
Finally we would like to thank David Dally for his true professional service and honest dealing with us. Both Erosha and I agree that we would not have gone with your company unless David came and had a chat with us in the way he did. We felt that he wanted to provide a quality service when discussing the job and gave us all the background information necessary for us to be comfortable with the job. Especially, David’s strategy of advertising (i.e. the material provided including the CD and your website with past work) is definitely not wasted and choice of the concrete provider (Metromix) is great. Also, we were impressed to see him finishing off concreting with other workers to get things done when time mattered most.
Overall we are very happy with you + your work and it was such a pleasure to deal with you all. We think that we are lucky to get your service. We wish you all the best with your company and please do not hesitate to ask potential clients to contact us if they like know our experience in dealing with you.

I would just like to say what a fantastic job the team have done with our driveway. Donna and I are extremely happy with the not only the standard of work, but also the way the job was progressed. If you could please pass this onto David and the team it would be much appreciated.
I do have one question, which may be hard to answer given the current climate. I was just wondering what the expected time frame is before we would be able to drive on the driveway?

“I’d like to thank you for giving me advice about how best to rectify the unsafe job done by our builder.
I really appreciate both the time you took to explain our alternatives, and your expertise. I’d rate this level of service as exceptional.”
I’ve just processed our final payment and I can’t even begin to express how happy I am with the end product!
I left work at 6pm; picked up my Mum and Dad and raced over to see because I had your phone message ringing in my ears! Well, what I found took my breath away! The colour – F2 mix – and the finish; the neat and spotless presentation – it’s perfect Antoinette, just perfect! When I think of how anxious I’ve been over this job…. David and his crew made the wait more than worth it! They gave us an asset to be proud of for years and years to come!
I was so happy I rang to speak to David – he wasn’t available and I left a half-mental expression of how very, very please I am – and so is Frank; and my brother Alex (who lives at the place); and my Mum and Dad too; my sister Anna rang to say it looks awesome – and I’m sure the compliments will keep coming!
I’ll ring David in the morning to thank him personally!
I’m thankful, grateful and very, very happy right now! ….and did I mention that YOU are the most excellent office-administration-take-care-of-everything-in-the-background person ever?
Thanks Antoinette, you’ve all done us proud!
I’ll be recommending A Better Driveway/Simply Driveways for a very, very long time!
With our gratitude and best wishes,”
