Putting call out, NK’s in the city

NK ELECTRICAL owners Nathan and Kate Lubben, as a couple, have never shied away from a challenge.

Married just a year after they first met, renovating a house together and moving to Warwick, opening their own business is just another chapter in the young adventures.

"When you know, you know," Kate smiled.

The couple moved from Sydney in December last year and say they love the town.

"I love how wide the streets are; it's such a clean and friendly place," Kate said.

"Honestly I have been to so many call-outs so far and have never met a bad person. Sydney can't compare to this," Nathan agreed.

The new electrician's already popular with residents.

"I have had a decent amount of call-outs given the amount of competition in this town. There seems to be enough work for everyone," Nathan said.

NK Electrical offers 24-hour service and no charge on call-outs in the Warwick area, and free quotes.

"He's an early riser and I am a late sleeper so someone is always awake to answer the phone," laughed Kate.

Despite their recent move to the town, the Lubbens have become part of the community.

"We hope to set aside a day when we do half-price work and the money can go toward a local group," Nathan said.

He has donated to The Warwick Collective already, and says, "We just want to get something started".

Kate has also jumped into the spirit of Warwick, taking part in The Warwick Collective, the Women of Warwick group, lawn bowls and bingo.

"I have gotten to know so many people," Kate said.

The pair said they hoped to continue their business in Warwick for a long time yet.

"We offer security and communications but TVs seem to be the most popular thing here," Nathan said.

"A lot of people have bad TV work."

Nathan, who had only just arrived home from a trip to Sydney, was back to work that afternoon.

"Well, we said 24 hours," he laughed.
