WISE Laybuy:

 

Don’t qualify for subsidy under the Warmer Kiwi Home programme? We are still able to offer free assessments and provide non obligation quotes. The cost of insulation can be a lot for some. For this reason, we now offer “before pay laybuy”, where homeowners/landlords can book an install date and pay some of the costs off before install and the remainder after install.

 

Terms and conditions are:

 

·       10% deposit to be paid upon booking

·       Pay a weekly amount for up to 12 weeks

·       Remaining 10% to be paid 7 days after install

·       10% penalty if the job is cancelled by the customer within 7 days prior to install happening.

·       The home owner/landlord may pay the entire amount before the install goes ahead BUT don’t have to.
