Testimonials

Very good service, fast delivery, product was as specified so our client was happy

Fintan Harevy, Blakely Construction


Gayle and Urban Effects are my go-to furniture suppliers. I feel like I can count on Gayle, she is personable, and I feel like she will always respond and help me with what I need.

Many times I have asked her for quotes and options, and she always comes back to me quickly, and never makes anything too difficult. I feel like Gayle is reliable and a lovely person to work with.

I also love the Urban Effects products, they have always delivered on quality, and are willing to customise.

The seat that you sent us has been installed on the top of the bank at the Burt Sutcliffe Oval in Lincoln (a cricket ground that is used as an international training ground). It is being ‘dedicated’ next week as a memorial to an ex professor/avid cricket fan.  The comments I’ve had have all been very positive – everyone thinks it’s a great looking, and very comfortable seat.  So much so, that the crappy bench seats along the top of the bank along from this one, may need to be replaced as well – you may see some more orders coming your way….

Good product range and good quality. Quick and informative response to enquiry. Product delivered as initially advised. Will use as preferred supplier. Much easier to deal with than the competitor we used to deal with.

It was great dealing with Urban Effects. All communications were timely as was delivery. The quality of the products are excellent.

Papakowhai School


The trip was a great catchup with the rep. ………..The information I provided on the reason we had chosen the type of outdoor furniture, and its ability to avoid corrosion in this area with its  high corrosive content of Hydrogen Sulphide,  was valuable for selling to areas like Rotorua………Because of its good look I ordered two more seats for other areas in town.

Kawerau District Council


Excellent friendly prompt service, thank you

Blum New Zealand


Great email service from Gayle – frequently my emails were answered immediately but always by next day.  Our order was made just before COVID but the communication about when, how etc was regular, apologetic (even though it was not Urban Effect’s fault) and friendly.  Would certainly recommend them to others, and will buy here again.  Thank you.

The children love using the new scooter racks, and they keep the area so much safer now the scooters are all organised.

Our sanitiser stand is great. Thanks. 🙂

Oaklands School


A quick note to say great work with your accessible furniture – picnic tables that my son can drive his wheelchair under make meals at parks so much easier.  Keep up the great design work!

Waikato Diocesan School for Girls were wanting to replace old, worn and heavy outdoor wooden furniture and required modern outdoor furniture to complement a new shade sail. We were wanting Urban Effects to provide stylish, modern, light and hardwearing seating, with the ability to be used not only during break times but also as a break out classroom. In this instance hey had an ‘off the shelf’ product which perfectly suited our needs, we could easily choose our colour and they kept us advised during the manufacturing process.

We recently had a new classroom block built and were looking for some new seating that was both attractive and versatile. Outdoor Solutions provided both! We have used the services of Urban Effects over a number of years now and have always been very happy with the end product. Their service is very prompt and personal and they have a great range to choose from. Our latest purchase of coloured moveable seats have proved to be really useful as well as being bright and attractive additions to our outdoor area.

Deanwell School

We required durable outdoor seating for our students to be seated beneath our naturally shaded areas. We wanted Outdoor Solutions to provide recommended quality goods that fitted our need. Urban Effects suggested various options for this briefand we are now very happy with the end result.
