Russell and Shirley were amazing throughout, as we navigated a massive renovation of our entire home. Albert and Mas did a fantastic job throughout the 5 day installation. We are absolutely thrilled, thank you for making it so easy.

Kathi Murphy


Well, what can I say, Russell and Shirley......... I love .......LOVE the carpet that Russell guided me to choose, am 10,000,00 % happy, Russell was spot on and I am super impressed with the immaculate joins Mas did from the lounge/hallway/computer room areas too........ Mas was amazing, went over & beyond what one could ask for, gave me some handy hints too ( rubber mallet, YES !! ) and best of all, Mas left the games room and surrounding areas immaculate, Mas is brilliant, you are so lucky to have such a considerate carpet layer that goes that little bit extra. I am so pleased with Harrisons, was impressed how Russell helped Mas with everything too.... what a great boss ! I am just delighted and thank you so much.

Bev Clatworthy


Russell was outstanding in his service. Very knowledgeable and helpful without the pushy of selling. We choose Harrison's because they communicated so well, they were fair in price, did a great service and cleaned up after themselves. Wim the fitter that came was lovely, quick, and efficient. Everything looks just fabulous. I would very much recommend this lovely company to everyone.

Marty Richards


We were very satisfied with the service, price and quality of product we received from Harrison's. They were very prompt in returning and fixing a tiny issue. We would highly recommend using Harrison's Carpet and Flooring
Thank you Russell and Shirley.

Tamara and Ben Allen


Russell and Shirley have been so easy to deal with over our home renovation which, as always happens, has taken longer than we expected! Nothing has been a problem and their subcontractors have been friendly and they have done a great job, would recommend to all!

Mandy Stephens


Totally professional from measure and quote to the carpet/vinyl installation. Russell, Shirley and Wim are excellent to work with and the new carpet and vinyl flooring looks amazing. Have used for two houses now and would definitely use again.

Marta Willis


Thank you so much for everything guys! It was a dream to deal with Russell and the team. He was awesome in giving advice and support choosing the right carpet, as we have allergies in our household. (No coughs since the new one installed!!!) They always been on time, and completed the work in a timely manner. Highly recommend Harrisons Carpet & Flooring to everyone. Thank you Russell and team!

Karen Christie


Russ and his team were a pleasure to deal with. Great service and top communication all the way through. Would highly recommend.



The Harrisons team are great, knowledgeable and friendly. We had our bathroom and kitchen floor done and it is amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Hayley Higgins


From start to finish Russ, Shirley and Mas were amazing to work with. The expertise, patience and advice was so appreciated and Mas did an incredible job on the install - what an awesome friendly team! Would 100% recommend :)

Craig Mills


When Russell first arrived at our home to go through carpet and hard flooring options, we felt so comfortable and never pressured to go out of our budget, taste or style.

He matched with us perfectly with the carpet we felt best for our home and gave us wonderful professional opinions about the hard flooring as we are planning renovations.

Rather than after the sale, he advised us to plan our bathroom, kitchen and laundry renovations before we make any decisions on the hard flooring. We were so grateful of his guidance through our first renovation.

Shirley made the process of booking the install of our carpet and admin so incredibly easy and so grateful of this.

Wim their phenomenal installer did an incredible install of our carpet. Our lounge required a join which is completely and utterly unnoticeable which we are absolutely thrilled by.

As we are still to level the house, he said he would happily come back to make any tweaks necessary - and even offered and assisted with bringing in the heaviest piece of furniture into our home. So grateful!

Russell and Shirley from Harrisons have been amazing to deal with and reccomend wholeheartedly. Wim, amazing!

Jane Thomas


We had a bathroom renovation organised and chose Harrisons Carpets to supply our vinyl, as Russell came to see us and helped us so much with our choices. Really thrilled with his friendly consultation. Also our building time had to be put on hold, and Russell was happy to store our vinyl till the job was ready. If anyone is thinking of flooring, touch base with Russell.

Mark & Esther Hyland


Would highly recommend Russell & Shirley very professional workmanship excellent job well done

Chris & Emma Downey


We've recently had Harrisons replace our carpet and it was a easy, smooth process. Russell was knowledgeable and very patient as we chose the new carpet and Shirley was thorough and efficient making it all very stress free. I can highly recommend these guys as a low price but great quality company. We will use them again.

Deb Climo


Great people to work with. Russell was very patient while I chose my vinyl. Shirley answered all my questions and Shannon did an excellent job in laying it and was very helpful with my furniture. Pleased with it all, house looks modernised and smart.

Julie Arundel


I have recently had my house carpeted by Harrisons Nelson and really appreciate what a great job they did.
Russell and his team are so professional, making sure everything was perfect and were so helpful.
I am delighted at the result and highly recommend this company.

Liz and Roger Hall


Russell and Shirley Gowans are very professional and did everything to meet with our needs. Would definitely recommend them personally.

Sue Hayward


Excellent service and prompt completion of the work. We are very happy with the result and would highly recommend Harrisons for any carpeting needs.

Alan Hinton


We chose Harrisons to replace the carpet and vinyl in our large rumpus room and laundry. We were impressed with the promptness of their service, excellent communication throughout the process, and a great result. Thanks Shirley and Russ.

Vibeke Friis


I had really fretted about the job of getting the carpets laid. Honestly I had nightmares.
Well it couldn't have been easier. I had spent weeks cleaning out cupboards etc even so I couldn't help worrying about how the whole thing would come together. Russell had promised they would move the heavy stuff.
Well it couldn't have been smoother. Russell and Max arrived early and removed the furniture for the room/rooms that was being done on the day. Wim got stuck in ripping up the old carpet and laying the new one. When he was finished for the day Russell and Max came back to get the furniture back.
Wim was flat out for 3 days, it was a delight to work with this delightful hardworking team. We even got to meet Shirley when she dropped Max off one day.
Oh, by the way, we love the carpet. My husband hadn't been all that keen, but he is delighted with the carpet and the workmanship.
I would not hesitate to recommend Harrisons, Nelson to my friends and family.

Catherine Barker


I was extremely impressed with the high quality of customer service right off the bat. After I made initial contact the local owner made an evening call out with carpet samples, we were able to feel and discuss the options and what would work best for our needs. Excellent knowledge base. Installation was helpful and problems were solved without hassle. I could not be happier with the finished product, it looks and feels fantastic. The invoicing was simple and friendly. Would definitely use the Nelson team again

Kim McDonald

Got new carpet throughout the house and new hard flooring in the kitchen, bathroom and toilet, we are absolutely stoked with how luxurious the carpet feels and the hard flooring is a great addition to the rooms it went into. Highly recommend Harrisons Nelson.
