Securing your property, vehicles and most importantly dogs!

Patrick Koot from Elusion Electrical Ltd

Elusion has noticed an increase over Christmas and the New Year of puppy nappings, break ins, prowlers and cars going missing, or packages being stolen from the driveway.

It has especially broken our heart seeing a young pup going missing from a dairy but with great community spirit, security footage of offender and the power of social media we see he is now at home in his rightful place.

More and more we have seen great footage of offenders shared online and also warnings to others.

Its is good reminder to everyone to always lock doors and windows, have good security lighting around your whole house, get to know your neighbors and contemplate security cameras.

While security cameras can be a slightly expensive option we can't recommend it enough if you have puppies, or tools stored in vehicles, or lots of packages coming and going like we do. We love having the added security of our whole business and property monitored even while we put our feet up for a weeks camping in Hanmer springs recently.

Feel free to contact us to talk about security cameras, outside lighting or any other electrical needs.

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
