See what comments we have received from our
Internet customers around Australia and overseas:

Hi Mia and Roy. I've been meaning to let you know... Remember the wedding for 180 people I mentioned I was doing with the new Chaiyo? I got an email from the very happy groom - everything had gone very well. The venue in the Swan Valley is however, right on the flight path to Perth airport. Just as the bride was saying her vows a plane was coming in overhead to land! Yet apparently all 180 guests still heard her vows. I reckon if the Chaiyo Stage Pro can take on a 737 coming in to land it's a pretty good recommendation : Feel free to use it or pass it on! Hope all is well with you Kindest Regards

Wendy W (a celebrant from Perth) is now a fan of the Chiayo StagePro!

Hi Mia. Thank you so much for all of your assistance. The package arrived on Tuesday, unbelievably efficient. Now my challenge is to work it all out - that will be fun! Thank you again.

Cheryl ordered her Chiayo Focus portable PA system on Monday. It was delivered to country Victoria on Tuesday!

Hi Roy, Megaphone has arrived safe & sound. Many thanks for your help!
Great to do business with someone who understands customer service. Cheers, Les

Les said it all!

Hi Mia, Just wanted to email you and say what a fabulous experience I've had with Merrylands Music. From calling you out of the blue yesterday, to your stocking the product I wanted for a birthday gift tomorrow, you took payment over the phone, then arranged for an express post pack to be delivered today. I will definitely be recommending you to my Music teacher husband and all of his colleagues at school.

Rebecca received her Irish Whistle pack in less than 24 hours

Hi Mia, Thank you for the delivery of the Chiayo Coach to our company last week. It was received in time and ensured our event was a great success. The customer service from you and the rest of the team at Merrylands Music was appreciated. Due to the success, we are after purchasing two more units, is that a possibility?

This huge mining company is becoming a repeat customer of Merrylands Music!

Hi Roy, I picked up the Focus system today and I guess that was you who was also in the shop! What a fantastic little system. I would just like to commend Mia for her professionalism, knowledge and assistance whilst serving us today. She was very pleasant and customer focused.......what an asset to your business. Thank you Mia....well done! Regards Gayle (Civil Celebrant)

Gayle's comments on her purchase of her Chiayo Focus portable PA speak for themselves!

I had cause to purchase a portable PA system for our local Chamber of Commerce. After trawling the internet I found a number of providers. I selected three and made my inquiries online. I had just one response! Roy Hilton from Merrylands Music clear and concise communication stated to me, I was dealing with a very real person who knows his business. Once the order was placed, the great communication kept coming with clear timing. Once the goods were ready and payment was received, Roy continued the great work to make pickup as easy as possible. The whole process was easy. I am very passionate about customer service and when I get service from Merrylands Music which was beyond my expectation, I remain hopeful for the majority of Australian businesses. They just need to pull their head out of the sand and see what the market wants and add value to the process. It is easy! Well done Roy and the team at Merrylands Music. David Waudby jp CEO Macarthur and Liverpool Business Enterprise Centres

Roy... As a new celebrant I was putting off purchasing a PA until absolutely necessary and then along comes a wedding with 120 guests. Like most people I turned to the net to source some information. The service you provided, promptly answering my numerous email queries was excellent. Your recommendations proved spot on with my purchase of the FOCUS 505 which I christened on Saturday. The FOCUS was perfect for my requirements even down to providing background music prior to the wedding. Also the hints you gave me on operating the system made my maiden voyage much smoother.
So thank you for a job well done.

Raymond R (Northern NSW) purchased a Chiayo Focus 505 portable PA system and was very pleased to say the least!
