PBS Plumbers and Building Services


PBS Plumbers and Building Services (PBS) operate from two locations (Invercargill and Queenstown) and are your one-stop for plumbing, electrical, drainlaying, heating, and gasfitting. With over thirty years in the industry, PBS as a business had outgrown its website in terms of the services offered and the directors; Grayson, Ron, and Wayne, felt the logo and website needed a refresh to properly showcase what they offered as a business.


PBS came to Turboweb as their current website wasn’t keeping up with their business. It didn’t easily tell clients about their two locations and it didn’t really tell people about the great projects and experience the team have. PBS offers a wide range of services and has a highly skilled team with a wide variety of tailored skills from solar installation, to HVAC services and gasfitting. Getting a website that properly showcased their services, and how they are a one-stop solution to major projects was key.


The PBS Logo needed a refresh to bring it up to 2018. Some of the fonts were showing their age, but the overall design still sat well with the Directors and hadn’t aged. They wanted to remove the previous wording ‘one-stop’. The fonts needed an update to 2018 and to be a bit more interesting. The green, red, and black from the previous logo came through, with a little upgrade. The changes to the logo are subtle, but they bring it up to 2018 and tell people more of what their business offers – Plumbing and Electrical.


PBS wanted a new website that easily showed visitors that they had two locations and showcased their services. An easy to fill in form and 'enquire now' button on each of their services makes it super easy for potential customers to get in touch.

The website also has projects, which easily show clients what they’ve been up to and some of the major projects they’ve undertaken in the Central Otago and Southland area. It’s often all too easy for businesses to never talk about the great work that they do, so clients are often unaware of what they offer.

Turboweb worked with Diane from PBS to coordinate the website. While Turboweb produced the majority of the content, Diane was given a login and made some updates and tweaks before the website went live. The PBS Projects clearly tell clients that PBS is your one-stop shop when it comes to new builds or tricky projects, like Pirriam Cove (apartments on stilts above water that needed plumbing and gasfitting solutions).


'Our website was very dated, and we had been talking about refreshing our website and logo for some time, our major concern was our lack of technical skills. We knew we had to freshen up our image, but like all things, it was finding the time to commit to doing it.
The salesperson was very informative and made the exercise very easy to understand. She let us know from the start that although the process would involve input from PBS, the majority of work would be undertaken by Turboweb.

Turboweb listened to what we were after and designed a fresh, informative site that suited our needs. The team were very friendly, informative and patient with us. Once we really committed to the process and supplied the information needed, it was very easy.
The website now is exactly what we were after, it’s also user-friendly for us to alter and add to. I have no hesitation in recommending Turboweb to other companies.'
