Like many small companies we have been pretty hard hit with Covid especially in the last few weeks with covid doing the round thru our family. Liking to be different Patrick tested posted on Megs day 7 , Shan positive on Patrick's day 6 so we have had 3 weeks of shut down.

Despite being triple vaccinated it hit hard. We are committed to stay up to date with all future boosters and flu injections and we feel strongly about protecting our valued customers.

We are extremely greatful to 2 amazing friends/other local electrical businesses who have done Elusions urgent work over this time. You guys rock.
Thanks for your patients those of you who have had jobs rescheduled or postponed.


Patrick is now back up and running so get those quotes and jobs booked in.

Picking the perfect valentine is a little bit like the perfect finish on any hone improvements. If you chose quality from the start it reaps long term perfection.

We have been doing a little open homing recently and boy you really can tell the people who have saved a little bit here and there or attempted to do it themselves. Elusions products are sometimes a little more expensive than sourcing yourself but it comes with that quality guarantee.

Hopefully your Valentine spoils you today!

The Elusion team is committed to recycling despite the extra time and effort on our part.
While most tradespeople leave you with the rubbish , we not only take it away we break it down into glass plastic metals and take it all to the recycling center - all at our own cost. It often takes the boys a few hours of breaking everything down especially lamps/light fittings prior to a recycling run but totally worth committing to for our planet.

It does make for a little mess on our drive sometimes but our mokopuna will thank us one day.

If for any reason you do wish to keep your old fittings please let Patrick know when doing the job ....(it's happened once in all these years).

After sending out our last level 4 update I had completely forgotten to let everyone know we have grown. Patrick has been so busy this year and 5 day weeks became 6 which became 7 so something had to give.

We decided the best way to employ someone and know they would do it the Elusion way was to teach them from the very beginning and take on a "first year apprentice" . Around the time we realised we needed help, Jake phoned us for some work experience, and helped convince us we needed him. We are glad to say he is now Elusion's official first employee .

For our customers security wise, Jake can only work under direct supervision from Patrick so won't turn up without him. You also have the reassurance you will always have our sign written van and team in uniforms to help confirm they are who they are. You can ask at any time also for their electrical registration cards and drivers license for photo ID.

Pip and Otto are loving the extra attention twice a day, Patrick's load is a little lighter and our customers can expect the same high quality service.

If you have any urgent level 4 jobs you won't get to meet Jake he will be back on board in level 3!

Remember under level 4, power, heating and cooking is classed as essential.

Stay warm, stay safe and stay well

We have got so busy with the business, becoming 7 days a week by the time we do paperwork and Shan working away plugging a gap in Grey Hospital that our house has been very neglected.

We are looking for a housekeeper to clean 2 bathrooms, vacum wash floors and dust. Must be non smoker (our daughter is a asthmatic) and be confident with big dogs as we have 2, in the papanui area.

While the business is run from home there may be times you need to let yourself in and clean hence complete confidence with the dogs is a must.

Our property is also covered by security cameras ..we like to be above board and make sure people know this prior to starting wk.

If you feel you could help us out please message or text 021 217 2382

Thanks

I know how dissapointing it is to see level changes again especially after a weekend of big concerts like Electric Avenue which saw people from all over the country. We really appreciate our Governments attempts at trying to keep covid limited especially knowing the vaccine is around the cnr.

Here at Elusion we take our responsibility under all levels importantly. All members of our household are expected to use covid app at all times and we will let you know if anyone in our house is not 100% and reschedule if this was the case. Please in turn let us know if you are unwell and we can change appointment.

Both Shan and Patrick have been using covid app religiously since it came in even when there has been no cases in country because we want to be responsible for our children and clients. While we obviously cannot swipe into your homes our appointments are all digitally saved into our calendar so can me merged into tracker if needed and a complex report of 100% of Elusions movement could be provided to officials at any time should it be required. While our teens haven't always been so great they know its is now our expectation they play their part as well in protecting our customers.

Again we still cary sterigel and masks at all times and should you wish for Patrick to wear a mask just ask.

Best wishes

With the new year we thought we would remind our customers of our recycling policy.

We try our hardest to recycle everything we can, including taking away all of our own rubbish and your broken lamps, heaters, towel rails, heat pumps etc. When Patrick gets home he breaks all light fittings down to plastic, and metal into separate bins which can be a time consuming job. Then every few weeks he does a big recycle run to our nearest Ecodrop and dump. We estimate by breaking it all down more than 3/4 is able to be recycled.

While we don't pass of any of this extra cost to our customers its still a win win for us ....the dogs get very excited about the trip in the old ute for the dump run ..and the nice staff at ecodrop give them a lot of pats and a treat on the way out....and it leaves the environment better for our children and future grandchildren. Most companies don't recycle due to a mixture of time and cost restraint and just not being aware about the long term damage.

Please if you do wish to have your old parts left for any reason just remind Patrick at time of job and we will happily do this.
