"Your mediation team have got our business out of two difficult small claims cases in the past and are currently helping us with another one. When I had a problem recently with a customer, I told them to please call the MTA. I also called MTA and spoke with Alan who has been great. He has been very helpful and knows everything about our current situation."

Jolene, Bethlehem Motors

"It’s good to be a part of the MTA. Recently we used you guys as we got involved in a dispute with a difficult customer. We went to MTA, and it’s all sorted now."

Carl, Oil Change Kings Papanui

"Thank you so much to your team for helping us with a difficult worker situation. The support and care was outstanding. I was away from the business when a situation happened, and my daughter was able to call and speak with the HR team, and they made sure everything we did was above board and done through the correct process. The problem has gone, and we can’t thank you enough."

Lance, Lilley Automotive
