Hi Kallie

Searching all over for covers for my Suzuki SJ410, I managed to make contact with
Kallie “Custom Built Canvas Canopies” whom within no time made me custom covers for
the Jeep , the quality and professional service I have received from him – I can highly recommend him.

Dear Kallie

I felt compelled to write to you given that the work you did for me was such a positive experience. From the first phone call to all our subsequent dealings, I was most impressed with your professional yet friendly and honest approach. It is not often these days that one gets such great value for money. Not only is your build quality superb and the overall product excellent; so too is the clever way in which you tackle some of the everyday problems with canopies.

On our first trip away to the Wild Coast my family and I often used the side wings to gain entry to bags and or the fridge. I was most pleased to see that your dust proofing works, there was no sign of dust anywhere; despite long drives on very dusty tracks. We also encountered heavy rain and some persistent drizzle, again the canopies interior was bone dry.

You may be certain of my continued support and I sincerely hope your company goes from strength to strength.

Well done on an excellent product and service!

Warmly,

Rob Schipholt


Hi Kallie

Ek is nog baie gelukkig met my Canvas Canopy; Desember was daar ook n paar ouens wat rond om ons gekamp met ook “ander “Canvas Canopies n Mens kan duidelik die verskil sien in kwaliteit en gehalte. Ek was nogal baie verbaas na al die reen dat die bak DROOG was en nog steeds! En daar is wraggies geen geraas al ry jy teen n hoe snelheid.

Ek het nie meer iemand nodig om my te help om die canopy af te haal nie ek doen dit self. Nog maals dankie vir jou puik diens! Ek is trots op my Canvas!!!!!

Groete,

Freddie Toerien


Hallo Kallie,

Baie dankie vir jou goeie diens. Wat ek baie van die oortreksels hou is dat dit nommer-pas is, en gevoering en netjies lyk. Ons is baie tevrede met die Everest se sitplek oortreksels, en die agterste bagasie beskerming wat jy gemaak het werk baie lekker vir die vervoer van vuiler items.

Dit het wonderlik gewerk by die see met ons duik toerusting en die kinders se nat en sand lyfies. Ek vervoer daagliks kinders met vuil voete en taai eetgoed in die hand en ek doen dit met absolute gemoedsrus. Ek vee die vuil merke maklik met natlap af en ek en my kinders is baie vriendeliker met mekaar oor die toestand van die vuil voete en hande. Jou werk is baie netjies gedoen en al die mense wat dit sien is ewe beindruk.

Ek sal regtig vir enige person met die behoefte om hulle kar sitplekke op ‘n netjiese en effektiewe manier te beskerm aanbeveel om van jou diens gebruik te maak. Ek het jou nommer al vir so paar mense aangestuur.

Van die kommentaar wat ek al gekry het was dat die persoon genome het, as ek nie vir hom gewys het dat dit oortreksels is nie, hy dit nie sou agterkom nie.

Nogmaals dankie!

Groete

Dear Kallie

When I installed a custom tray on my pickup truck, I spent a lot of time on the internet searching for a company to build a frame and canvas canopy to fit. I sent out at least a dozen inquiries, and only a few people responded….due to the complexity of the job and relative distance (I’m located in North America), only one person agreed to take on the task- Kallie Koekemoer. Right from the start of the design process, Kallie was engaged and interested…he gave me the impression that he truly cared about customer satisfaction and was committed to building a quality product. Throughout the design phase, Kallie was very thorough and professional and made sure that his design incorporated all of my requirements. It is no small job to design and build a custom canvas canopy via email for a truck located on another continent….but Kallie succeeded. I am very pleased with the product. Quality of materials is top notch, and installation was a breeze. Follow up support has been excellent. I would recommend this company and its products to any person in the market for a custom canopy. I will use Custom Built Canvas Canopies for all my future canopy needs.

Hi Kallie

Ek is baie tevrede en ons ’n 7000 km trip gedoen in Desember in die warm son, wind, reen stroms ens en geen probleme behalwe vir die plastiek buckles agter wat bros geword het van die son en gebreek het. Maar ek het ‘n ander plan gemaak en jou werkers het so paar maande gelede my plan permanent gemaak vir my.

Dear Kallie

Around July 2012 I bought a second-hand Land cruiser 70 series with a fitted canvas canopy. The canopy wasn’t in such a great shape and I approached Kallie Koekemoer in mid September to assist. He answered promptly on my email and invited me to come to his workshop to analyze the problem. Unfortunately the canvas was beyond permanent repair and Kallie offered to design and manufacture a new canvas and frame for the Cruiser. Within a week of us agreeing on the product and the price Kallie called to tell me that it was finished and that I should come and have it fitted at his home/workshop. This was then done on the 2nd of October.

My goodness was I happy, satisfied and pleased with the end result! The Cruiser now really looks like new, the workmanship is superb, the lighter frame makes removing and fitting it a piece of old ‘tekkie’ and access to the loading bay is an absolute pleasure! The superb service, offering of advice and instant friendship of Kallie and his team are absolutely commendable. Got a few cups of free coffee, had a lekker chat about all and sundry and I must admit – I have never seen a man so organized, safety conscious and meticulous in his workshop. He is fundamentally proud of his workmanship and therefore everything, even to the last nut/zip were carefully planned and only accepted as correct after Kallie personally did a full walk-about and inspection.

All I can say is the following – if you are in the market for any canvas canopy, frame or canvas product, then Kallie is your man – integrity, humanity, honesty, fantastic workmanship, great knowledge, superb quality and true love for what he does all come together in a superbly finished product. Thanks Kallie…appreciate the time I could spend with you and your team…the price of the finished product was minimal compared to what I got as a total deal…!

Hi Kallie,

Just a word of thanks for the excellent service I have received from you and your company. One is probably always a bit wary when ordering a “customised” item, which you cannot see until the time of its completion. But your product has by far exceeded my expectations. Excellent workmanship and a very neat finish of the canopy, combined with your personalized service and friendly atmosphere made it a pleasure dealing with you. The canopy blends in beautifully with my bakkie, and gives it that bit of extra safari / outdoor look. I have already received quite a few complimentary comments on the canopy, and some people have already taken down your telephone numbers from it. So don’t be surprised if you get a few more enquiries in the near future. And if I should ever need anything else in canvas, you’d be my first choice. Oh, and just a warning: if your loveable Labrador ever jumps into my van again, I’ll keep him.

Once again, thanks for everything.

Regards,

Günter

Kallie,

I recently purchase a Ford Ranger Single Cab and decided to also have the Ford approved cattle rails fitted together with a Canvas Canopy which can be fitted over the cattle rails. I wanted the best of both worlds, the ruggedness of the cattle rails when I need to load livestock or the complete waterproof option of a canvas canopy when I needed it.

I searched the internet and come across a couple of canvas canopy manufacturers. There was one that stood out amongst the others and I could see from the photo gallery that the product was of a high quality. I contacted Kallie Koekemoer at Custom Built Canvas Canopy and he was extremely friendly and helpful. When I asked whether I could first come and see for myself the products they manufacture, as I am a bit of a perfectionist, there was no hesitation from Kallie to invite me to his workshop.

On my arrival at Custom Built Canvas Canopy I immediately knew that if I wanted a quality product this is the place. Asked Kallie to give me a quote which I received within 48 hours and I immediately accepted.

A week later I received a perfectly fitted canvas canopy with unbeaten workmanship quality. I have had so many positive comments from friends and colleagues.

If you want friendliness, honesty, good service and exceptional workmanship then there is only one place to have a canvas canopy made and that is with Kallie Koekemoer from Custom Built Canvas Canopy

Thank you Kallie !!!
