Manawatu: Kaye White

I have been the owner/operator of Harrisons Carpet One Manawatu since January 2005 when I left the comforts of an Accountancy office here in Palmerston North to spread my wings and buy my own “little” business. I soon became so busy in my own “little” business that I had to buy another van and start employing staff. I eventually sold a portion of the area that I was servicing to Tracy who now owns her area known as Harrisons Carpet One Palmerston North. I look after half of Palmerston North together with the surrounding areas of Feilding, Bulls, Sanson, Marton, the northern Manawatu district, and across to some areas of Wanganui. I’m sure you would have seen my distinctive sign written van zooming around the district.

Both my partner Chris and I are very involved in the community and enjoy a stroll around the Palmerston North golf course together whenever we can. I support our local golf club by sponsoring an annual golf tournament known as the Carpet One Open Day which is a very popular event.

I believe my strength is listening to what my customers want and trying my very best to deliver to their expectations, so they can be totally happy with their experience dealing with Harrisons Carpet One.

Reviews of Harrisons Carpet Manawatu

Kaye has been very helpful, knowledgeable and supportive. It was a pleasure doing business with her.

Pieter and Eliza Botha Manawatu - Dec 2017

Carpet One have been a dream to do business with. We were in the process of building our first home and it was great having some guidance from someone who knew what they were doing! I appreciated the flexibility of Carpet One most - a payment plan that worked with our situation was organised with no hassle and it was reassuring to know that the carpet we had paid for was in good hands when we experienced delays in getting the house finished. When we were finally ready, four of the most efficient carpet layers were organised and before we knew it, we had a house full of gorgeous carpet! It has really made our house a home and this is even sweeter knowing that the whole process of getting carpet was just so quick and easy.


We found Kaye to be friendly and relaxed, she provided us with a summary of the options available and we soon made our choice. Kaye's efficiency and expertise then came to the fore and in a remarkably short time (like within twenty minutes or so) she had a floor plan and written quote printed for us. We had complete confidence that she would do a great job for us so decided not to obtain any other quotes. Our confidence proved "spot on". She organised the carpet layers, checked on their progress and then in turn provided us with progress reports. We are thrilled with the final result and highly recommend Kaye to anyone who is contemplating the purchase of new carpet.
