Paul has been fabulous, from helping us narrow down what we wanted to import, having the caravan checked in the UK before importing it. Paul spent a couple of hours with us going over every thing on the caravan to make sure we knew what we were doing before sending us on the way. Lots of extras, wealth of knowledge. we would use him again. Highly recommend.

Got advice from Paul re importing a new van from UK, (avoided a huge problem with EU supply) Landed an Adria Thames that was UK spec and delighted with it, Paul installed the underfloor water tanks, inc water pump, tank gauges, gas and electric NZ certs, battery /charger fitment, self containment cert etc all to a very high standard. (proper NZ power point inserts etc) Highly recommend Paul for knowledge and know how on all the tricky bits with quality workmanship . Thanks Alistair and Toni

Paul: Dear Toni and Alistair, thank you for your effort to write this down. It was my pleasure to have these tanks fitted and all NZ compliance done on your Adria caravan, hope you will have many enjoyable days/weeks away from home. Regards Paul
Mike Watson and Paul from leisure imports ripped us off check you’re silverdale posts on FB don’t buy from these 2 guys they’re scoundrels who don’t even give a warranty on a brand new van that leaks due to manufacture fault in the uk after a year of promising parts to fix our van NOTHING! They’re liars

Paul: Tina bought this caravan PRIVATELY & without warranty (signed for) from Mike. After months she contacts Mike as water comes in at front window hinge. Although bought without warranty Mike decides to help and contacted me. After months trying, the UK dealer gave the parts, but Covid delays delivery due to UK lock-downs & shipping problems, not deliberately, just unlucky timing. Tina, who not bought from me, but I’m still trying to help: 44 positive reviews and 1 bad review, the picture is clear
Excellent service great value for money and Paul simply easy and knowledgeable to deal with Highly recommended

Paul: Thank you Louise and Mike, much appreciated!
Bought a Bailey Pegasus 534 from Paul at a great price. Paul was fantastic to deal with. He is knowledgeable and courteous. Most importantly he sticks to his word. His after sale advice to me to get the best out of our purchase was first class. Thanks mate. Don Scott

Paul: Hi Don, much appreciated, your business and your review, thanks!
Can’t wait to see your new imports what’s the ETA on them? I’m particularly interested in any Elddis vans? Nice you’ve changed location must be much user friendly than your last yard with that steepish driveway the motor mover you installed on our brand new Elddis xplore van is fantastic

Paul: Hi Tina, nice to hear from you. To see my stock and the ones in transit, type "LEISURE IMPORTS LTD" in the TradeMe search box and these listings showing up. Regards Paul
knowledge was bang on. My wife and I chose a very tidy 9 year old van, that was as good as new. Not only did we buy the caravan but we got Paul to do everything that was needed to be fully self contained. This exercise was also done in an efficient and speedy manner. If you are looking at buying a caravan, you do need to talk to Paul.

Paul: Thank you so much Leigh and Digby for your business and trust. It was my pleasure to help you with this 2011 Bailey Unicorn Valencia. Regards Paul
We recently engaged Paul's services to bring in a Caravan from the United Kingdom. We were grateful for his communication and professionalism which we feel enabled us to make the best decisions about our investment. His connections enabled us to avoid buying a lemon, and we are excited with the option we eventually came up with. His advice and recommendations matched the needs of our situation perfectly.

Paul: Hi Christine and Al, it was my pleasure to help you with the 2016 Adria Altea 542DK. With the addition of solar and self-containment that I installed in Silverdale, it enables you to camp anywhere you like and in comfort. Thank you for your business and review. Regards Paul
Recently I purchased a new Bailey Unicorn through Paul. Spoke to him one day telling him what I wanted and the next morning he had the price for me. It was a fantastic price. I got some extras and it was all hassle free and an excellent service. Paul kept me informed of the caravans journey to NZ. Would recommend anyone wanting a caravan to go to Paul first. A big thank you. Mick

We just collected our new van from Paul this week. What a pleasure to deal with someone who knows what they are doing, everything went according to plan and budget. Paul answered all our questions and concerns adding other ideas as we went along. Would highly recommend anyone who is looking to buy a caravan they go and see Paul. Jennie Brand 4U.

Paul: Hi Jen & Paul, it was a pleasure to work with you and to get a caravan that meets all your requirements and within the budget, I got to work with. Enjoy your Lunar Clubman SI 2012. Regards Paul
2nd new caravan bought through Paul . We could not have bought a caravan with all the from the UK at the price and with NO HASSLES. Everything was done for us including SC and all the extras at a cost no one can beat in Auckland. Paul made it very easy and stressless for us to get our new caravan. Thank You and hopefully we will trade again. Andre & Vanessa

Paul: Very easygoing customers who came to me for a Lunar Quasar 6 berth caravan and left with a Sterling Elite Trekker 5 berth. Friendly, great communicators, prompt payment and pick up....hassle free!! Thanks heaps!
We recently purchased 5 caravans, 3 new and 2 second hand via Paul. Paul’s honest and professional approach made the whole process exceptionally easy. I was originally thinking of doing everything myself but are 100% happy with the decision to go with Paul. His communication during the purchase, shipping and compliance process was outstanding, we knew exactly what what happening every step of the way. A great guy to deal with, highly recommended!! Cheers Paul....

Paul: Paul asked me if I could assist to bring over the caravan from his father from the UK to NZ.
Many thanks to Paul for making the purchase and delivery of our 2017 Swift 584 (Michael Jordan Expression) a complete hassle free experience. After talking to friends who had purchased the same model caravan we contacted Paul who quoted us what we thought was an amazing price in comparison to other UK caravans we had seen on other lots,advertisements etc. All quotes have remained consistent at time of delivery with Paul keeping us up to date on all aspects of our caravans journey.

Paul: Thank you Julie & Mike for your feedback, much appreciated. I have the contacts, contracts and expertise to finish an import job from begin till end and keeping cost down for you, my valued customer.
Picked up our caravan over the weekend, 2006 Sprite Sports style twin, imported and selected by Paul. Service was trouble free, cost effective and professional and the caravan was everything we expected. No hesitation in recommending Paul's service.
fintan2 (308 308 positive feedback)  Mon 11 Sep
Paul: Cath & Fintan had a 6-berth caravan on their wish list and after looking at different options the choice was made, a 2006 Sprite SportStyle Stwin, a 6-berth caravan with fixed bunk beds and a large end bathroom. All sorted by just email and last Sunday they came over, hooked it on and drove off, it's that easy! I appreciated your business and trust. regards Paul
I have recently taken possession of a lovely new Elddis caravan that Paul selected and imported for me. The caravan arrived on time and in perfect condition. Communication was always prompt and clear. Everything was taken care of. He made it all easy. Paul even went to the trouble of cleaning and detailing it to a showroom standard. Extras were fitted and an awning supplied, all at price as good as the caravan.
mitchomaniac (343 343 positive feedback)  Sat 26 Aug
Paul: The first time Barry contacted me he was after a used caravan, fortunately, I was able to persuade him to look at a new one, at a similar price as a 2~3 year old one. He done the math and went for a 2017 Elddis Avante. Thank you for your business and trust. Regards Paul
Thanks Paul for your great service! We have just taken possession of our New Swift Caravan and it is fantastic. Paul took care of all the details and helped us through the whole process from start to finish with no pressure, just great advice. We would highly recommend Paul.
matchfamily (113 113 positive feedback)  Thu 10 Aug
Paul: Helen and Terry had a full list of requirements, from a beautiful 2017 Swift Conqueror 645 up to a full Fiamma awning, but also self containment and a quad motor mover that will be installed in the coming weeks. They done their homework and noticed they could not find it anywhere cheaper and that parts are brought in at cost did help as well. Thank you for your trust and business. Regards Paul
