    Highly satisfied customer

    From ordering our new clothesline online to receiving it, we received 100% excellent communication and service. Our last clothesline, which was exactly the same product, lasted us 15 years, and it was really only a bit of rust that prompted us to replace it. From ordering to delivery (the latter was free!) was just 3 days. Installation was quick and easy too. Thank you!

    Simply Clotheslines

    That's great to hear Laureen, I'm glad the replacement worked well for you. Enjoy your new clothesline

    Great customer service.

    I bought this clothes line because I'd had the earlier version which had reliably seen me through the family years. The new version was easy to order and quickly delivered but when I opened the box, the tension knob was broken. The selling agent quickly dealt with the issue and after sending photographs, Austral had a new unit delivered virtually the next day. The new line is now up and I'm very pleased with it. It gives great hanging space, the materials make it less obtrusive in your garden and it's easily adjusted. I'm looking forward to the same durabilty in Australian conditions I've enjoyed for years.

    Thanks for your feedback Kristine. I'm sorry to hear about the rare damage in transit, however I am glad the team were able to remedy the issue so quickly for you. Enjoy your new line :)

    this is a longer line than Bunnings have. Delivery was good and it works well. Had to tension the line which was not that hard. Worked out cheaper than others for the extra length

    Excellent service, the parcel arrived earlier than expected and was exactly as described. It is very sturdy and easy to use.
