Malcolm Ryder believes this occurs when companies look to increase profits by reducing distribution costs, making less deliveries to an area so customers must wait for urgently needed supplies. “I want to provide service the way it should be and once was,” advises Malcolm who owns and operates Kiwi Gas, a company that has been supplying LPG to Christchurch for over 18 years. When customers contact Kiwi Gas one of his team answers, not someone in a call centre who might be based off-shore. Kiwi Gas focuses on offering competitive if not cheaper prices and speedy delivery. “Our aim is to supply customers with gas within 24 hours, no matter where they’re based and we haven’t failed on that promise yet,” says Malcolm. This approach to business might explain why Kiwi Gas has become so popular with customers calling up for gas deliveries or popping into the company’s ‘drive-thru’ at 37 Shands Road in Hornby, where you can get gas bottles of all sizes filled. A 9kg fill costs just $25.90 and they also sell a full range of refurbished gas bottles, gas parts and accessories. If wanting to hire gas heating for a function, Kiwi Gas can help with this too. They hire outdoor heaters to bars, restaurants and individuals from as little as $39 per heater, per night. Malcolm says Kiwi Gas is as ‘Kiwi As’. They have three aims: ‘fast as’, ‘easy as’ and ‘sweet as’, explaining their growing reputation for customer service, fast delivery times and looking after the community. “New customers often tell us, the reason they called was because they’d heard so many good things about us,” adds Malcolm. You will find Kiwi Gas at 37 Shands Road in Hornby. If wanting a delivery, call them on 0800 166 619, email: needgas@ or order on-line at: www.
