702 Small Business Awards

Renovating? These guys are tidy, fast and take great pride in their work

Click hereto reward a small business that provides great service with a nomination for 2016's Small Business Awards with 702 and Sage One.

It's not often that you hear of a home renovation project being satisfactory, especially for the homeowner.

Homeowner Fiona Manoim has nothing but praise for SVLS Tiling that renovated her home.

Fiona says they cleaned up after each day’s work on a very messy and dusty home tiling project. She says she is amazed at the pride they took in completing each and every component of the project. Fiona says the owner went the extra mile by organising his own transport, at no additional cost, to pick up the tiles, ensuring that the project was not delayed.

Fiona, therefore, nominated SVLS Tiling for this year's 702 & Sage One Small Business Awards.

SVLS Tiling was established in 2006 by Sollie Mahlangu. Coming from a disadvantaged family, Sollie managed to start up his own renovation and tiling company.

Sollie used to attend to his customers using a train or taxi but SVLS Tiling has never stopped growing from strength to strength. The company started as tiling business only but they have now extended their services to indoor and outdoor renovations.

John Robbie spoke to Sollie about his nomination (scroll down to listen to the audio):
