"We first saw an example of Johns work on SH2 and were very impressed, making a note of his details for the future. When we needed some urgent fencing done on a new property, we contacted John and he came out promptly, assessed the work to be done and started it when he said he would. He also built a small stable/shed complex for our elderly pony which was also needed urgently before we could move. John interpreted our requirements exactly, offered advice where needed and carried out the work promptly, efficiently and with no fuss. The finished item was a well built, strong and aesthetically pleasing building.

John has also done other fencing for us, both wire and post and rail. And most recently has built a lean-to and garden shed to match the stable. We understand that he has an engineering background and this can be seen in the neat and precise way he works. Whether it is fencing or something more complex the quality and craftsmanship is there to see.

We have been more than pleased with the work that John has carried out for us. He is always pleasant, professional, advises where necessary, keeps you informed and quietly gets on with the task in hand, clearing up after himself and leaving the work site clean and tidy. We could not have wished for better.

Without hesitation we would recommend John and are only too pleased to do so."

Ray & Cathy Clifford, Pahoia

"John did some excellent work for us in building a retaining wall. He already came to us recommended by other family members; for an excellent fence that marks the front entrance of the farm property.

We were very pleased with all aspects of John's work; he was able to make time to visit us promptly and discuss the proposed work; he quoted quickly; we were able to get to the work started in good time, and the work was done smartly, thoroughly and there was great tidiness throughout and the property was left very tidy.

We would be pleased to thoroughly recommend John to anyone contemplating getting work done that John specialises in; he came equipped with all the necessary equipment and is very pleasant to have around the property."

Denholm and Roanne Crone, Tetley Rd, Katikati

"To whom it may concern.

We recently purchased a Dairy Farm on Matahui Road Katikati and needed several major fencing and engineering jobs done.

We contacted John and asked for his help. He arranged a time to visit and offered his expert knowledge on the work needing doing, straight away putting us at ease with his professional approach.

We now have a post and rail fence around our house and garden, post and netting fences around three ponds ready for amenity planting, and a set of cattle yards built on the old cow shed site.

The yards are a masterpiece of engineering using all the original pipe work for drafting and holding yards and drenching race, with post and rails for lead in races, making the handling of our 180 head of fattening cattle a pleasure.

We would be very happy for anybody who wants to view the cattle yards or fencing to just give us a ring (07 5520 705) and we will be proud to show you the excellent workmanship of John Baldock Fencing.

Thanks again John"

"To Whom It May Concern

I purchased a bush block at Aongatete just before Christmas 2009.

One boundary, through difficult bush terrain needed fencing, so I asked various fencers for quotes. Only one was prepared to work under the conditions set by the Council, which were: no bulldozing and no trees to be cut. John Baldock had immediately stood out among the other fencers, due to his obvious honesty and integrity.

There were delays with this fence due to difficult neigbours, so in the mean time I hired John for various other fencing projects, all of which he made a superb job of.

When the time came to erect the main fence, he once again made a beautiful job of it, and handled the situation with tact and diplomacy.

I have no hesitation in recommending this craftsman and fine human being for any work that you may require a fencer for."

Tracey Howell, Katikati

"To whom it may concern

My husband Greg and I recently built a house at in Tye Road Katikati. It is a rural property of 1.5 acres. The first thing we needed to do when we purchased the property was to fence it completely to prevent cows getting in and eating our new garden.

We employed John Baldock who is a local Rural Fencer from Katikati. He built a fence around the whole property. He did this very quickly and efficiently and for a reasonable price.

We later had him come back to put on a gate and then some more fencing. Each time we found him to do an excellent job. He is a pleasant person to deal with. He is professional and reliable. We have been impressed with John's workmanship and are hoping to get him back soon to do some more fencing work within the property.

I have no hesitation in recommending John for any fencing work.


Margaret du Bern, Katikati

"To Whom It May Concern

We employed John Baldock to do some batten and post & rail fencing on our property. John's helpfulness and quality of workmanship was outstanding.

We would have no hesitation in recommending John Baldock Fencing Ltd for all fencing requirements.

Yours truly"

John exhibits excellent workmanship and is very clean and tidy with this work.

I have no hesitation in recommending John and for any fencing requirements."

N & G Strange, Waihi

"To Whom It May Concern

I have known John for a number of years. Two years ago we got John to carry out fencing of approximately 4 kms on our property in Lund Road, Katikati.

The fencing was eight wire post and batten, some of it carried out on steep, difficult country.

We called on John's services as we had a lot of development work on at the time and we wanted a hand to complete the work quickly whilst maintaining a high standard of workmanship.

I'm pleased to say we achieved that using John Baldock. Two years on, his fences look as good as they day they went up. John was hard working, very efficient, achieving an excellent standard of workmanship. He was always good to deal with.

I generally carry out my own fencing on my property and also do some contract fencing from time to time so I feel more than qualifed to speak about John's workmanship.

I have no hesitation in recommending John for any fencing contract work and I'm happy to act as a reference if anyone was considering using him in the future. Ph 07 549 1045

Yours faithfully"

Rick Burke, Pukekauri Farms, Lund Rd, Katikati

"We employed John to fence and retain our lifestyle block at Oropi, Tauranga, this was four years ago, the job was excellent and today looks as good as the day it was done.

Having done rural fencing myself I know what it takes to do the job right and John's expertise and speed of completion impressed the both of us and a no nonsense approach saved a lot of money and worry. Just leave the job to him and it will get done right the first time.

John; all the best in your future endeavours."

I have used John Baldock to carry out fencing and erecting pergola structure on my property at Katikati.

I have found John very capable; I only have to show him what I want and then leave him to it.

If any problem should arise during the job, John will sort it. And when the job is finished, all the left over bits and pieces are collected up and the job is left clean and tidy.


Terry Hobart, Katikati

"We contracted John Baldock this year to erect a post and rail fence on the road boundary of our farm. The reason we chose John was that we had seen examples of his workmanship locally and we were impressed with what we had seen.

He certainly delivered and we were both extremely satisfied with his workmanship and of course the end result was a post and rail fence that complimented our property and one we are proud of.

John is a fast and exact worker who takes personal pride in his work and we have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective employer."

We have known John Baldock since 2005, when he was recommended to us by a local dairy farmer to fence our rural subdivision. He had proven to be an asset to our business endeavours and a thoroughly reliable and trusted professional.

From the outset John is punctual, communicative, and able to present a variety of ideas to problem solve the many scenarios that can accompany any fencing project. He often will present more than one good solution along with the variations in cost so that clients are able to compare for themselves which option will best meet their requirements. He is a man who can quickly assess the big picture of what any project entails, and then focus his attention to the details required. His engineering background shines through in both the quality and precision of his workmanship in the field.

Johns methodical approach to projects reflects best industry practice to the highest standarads, particulary in his health and safety procedures. We always felt that our family or visitors to the property were very safe with John operating there.

We have always been impressed with the work output he sustains on a daily basis, his availability to clients, quality of work and his transparent and reasonable pricing. The requirements of any contactual agreement are always carried out in an exemplary manner. He is a thoroughly trustworthy and reliable professional fencer, whom we have the greatest confidence in recommending without reservation to an individual or company.
