Aquamate Testimonial

“Sam has been very helpful and has taken the hassle out of applying for our licence.  It was all a little overwhelming and if it was not for Sam we would have taken a lot longer to  apply for the licence.  It was great how Sam made the process simple and stress free.”

“Since going out on my own into business Sam has provided direction in both my licensing and providing me with the right contacts to structure correctly. An open and honest conversation can always be had and I am confident in my licensing structure that I can focus on my work and other aspects of my business. I highly recommend Sam and SA Trade Licensing to all trades.”


Marsh Testimonial

“After numerous calls to relevant industry bodies and countless Google searches trying to understand the SA Trade Licensing requirements to enable me to offer handyman services as part of my business mix, I almost gave up as it seemed to be a minefield of issues and problems. Fortunately, I came across Sam’s business during one of my searches, sent him a quick e-mail explaining my predicament, we met, and the rest is history. Sam’s understanding of the process and ability to guide you through painlessly was invaluable.”
