Our Client Testimonials

From refrigerators and washing machines to entertainment, smart-media and home-office devices, our specialised technicians are dedicated to restoring your peace of mind.

I will be failing in my duty as a very satisfied MasterCare client if I do not bring the following to your attention. I have been a client of MasterCare for many, many years and have had reason to call in on occasions. Your lady Priscilla Makumane took it to a much higher level when I called in on Monday 2 Sept. What a sweet lady. Not only did she go into detail to explain the various options I have but went the extra ten miles to send me details of your "Pick Your Plan". Thank you, Priscilla. You are a STAR and a real asset to your company.
