Often when we get enquiries from potential new customers, they have a number of questions regarding Speed Humps Australia products and level of service. We’re always more than happy to answer any queries and you’ll find many of our most frequently asked questions outlined on the website.
While we answer the questions as honestly as we can, it’s always good to hear a client’s real experience and we thought we would share a few of the recent FAQ’s on our speed humps and client feedback on those questions.
What’s your general feedback on the speed humps from Speed Humps Australia?
They’ve been very effective in reducing the speed and driving behaviour of residents around our property.
Are they easy to install?
A competent handyman/builder with the right tools can put in a 4.5M unit in around 30 minutes. There’s an installation video on Speed Humps website which I had a quick look at to check how its done. Pretty straightforward. Way easier than making concrete ones.
Are they sturdy? Do they require ongoing maintenance?
Yes they seem pretty good. We’ve got about four here which are 12 years old and whilst they are a bit worn, only one needs replacing. We have about 100+ cars on site so they get a fair bit of use. Obviously it depends on traffic I guess. No maintenance that I am aware of.
Are they well designed? Do they effectively reduce speed ?
Yes they seem well designed and as above they’ve been effective. They do allow a very modest speed to be maintained over them so vehicles don’t come to a complete stop though. It depends what you want.
Have you procured any more from Speed Humps Australia over time? How is their after sales service?
I’ve been buying them for about 10 months as we have been doing the job gradually around the complex. So we usually buy 2-3 4.5m kits every couple of months. I’ve purchased around a dozen. They’ve been very good to deal with.
What are your thoughts regarding their price competitiveness?
I’ve been doing this kind of stuff for a long time and I generally purchase by quality not price. You can buy cheaper products but I can’t see the point in buying cheap stuff when its main job is to have people driving cars over it all day. If your replacement time is significantly dragged forward by poor product choice it just costs more in the long run.
