I am not sure I could find someone on a Sunday evening, but does it need to be in place today? I am actually Wellington based but could try some people in Auckland

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
His concern is that if he has a larger event overnight, he may not be in a position to set it up one himself. His family situation is complicated and it could get messy. At this time of day now, I think we are just going to have to take the risk that we can activate something in the morning.
