      "Decent value, fast turn around Pre-Auction inspection. Good communication with real estate agents. Perhaps not as much detail in the "hard to reach" areas of the house as I would like, e.g. stumps under house. Also I think they missed some water damage in the garage ceiling, but nothing major."

Thanks for saving us a ton!"

David the representative was really helpful even after the inspection for some follow up query. Absolutely recommend everyone to get your own private inspector when building, this is for your own peace of mind. Thank you APBI"

In other words I could have written the report myself without paying the $500+ price tag. Provided the report to my house builder who basically laughed in my face.

      "Easy to book in and the inspector showed up on time. He was helpful and I asked a few questions during the inspection which were answered then and there. Report was fairly thorough and caught the major issues but perhaps focused a bit too much on relatively minor issues for my liking (plaster cracks, broken floor vents, etc) while not checking more significant areas (eg. heating/cooling). Would recommend and hire again."

      "I ordered a building inspection for a property that I was interested in bidding on at auction. The report came back the next business day after the inspection and was much more detailed than I had anticipated. Greg went up into the ceiling and into the subfloor and gave the building a clean bill of health for the structure. He pointed out many areas around the exterior and garage that need attention giving me a great to do list for once I move in. I am extremely satisfied with the report and would recommend APBI to anyone wanting to purchase a home with confidence that they know what they are buying."

      "I used Australian Property & Building Inspections Melbourne services after extensive online search and found their service to be professional, friendly and convenient. There seem to be lot of property inspection companies out theres who charges exorbitant prices. I found their services reasonably price yet service that had been carried out was thorough and second to none. The inspector who did the inspection arrived on time and spent lot of time going through every detail and made it easier for me a make relatively large financial decision based on his report and my own judgement. One factor to keep in mind no matter which inspector carries out the inspection no company seem to take the liability on any defects not picked up during their inspection therefore your own due diligence is a must."

We are so glad we went with such a remarkable company who assisted us in purchasing our first home. I was nervous phoning up, unsure of what to do however Jade the lovely consultant was a great help and even arranged booking times with the real estate agent. The report was given to us the next day, it was extremely easy to read and I even passed it on to our broker who said she will be using this company in the future - as Dave left a great impression and his report was thorough and simple to understand compared to other companies. Definitely will be recommending to our friends and family!"

      "This inspection was worth every cent! We'd found a place we really loved and were prepared to bid hard for it at the auction the coming Saturday. It was last minute, but on the Wednesday I called APBI and they were able to do the inspection the following day with a written report submitted to me the on Friday morning. Michael was great. He called me as soon as he'd done the inspection and told me the house had major structural issues and a major termite and borer infestation! His call alone was enough to make us pull out but the written report was great. Super thorough, full of photos and good explanations of every issue. I also called him the next day to chat a bit more. He was happy to answer all my questions and was very knowledgeable. His report saved us from buying a total lemon! I highly recommend theses guys and we'll be using them again when we find another place we like."

I was so pleasantly surprised to receive the report within hours of the scheduled inspection. The report was 48pages long. First though was OMG the house we are looking to buy is falling to bits. How wrong I was. The report was so easy to read with accompanying pictures next to each item. I particularly liked that next to the noted issue the inspector noted what trade would be required to fix the issue. I have already recommend Australian Property & Building Inspections Melbourne to family and friends and will continue to do so."

I received a very comprehensive report from Greg, who gave me detailed information and advice on what areas in the house needed repair/maintenance both now and in the near future, including the foundations and water drainage since the property was on a sloping block. The team at APBI were very easy to deal with and responded to emails and phone calls pretty quickly. The whole experience was really easy and straight-forward, and the cost was very reasonable. Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone needing a building/property inspection."

      "I signed a contract for a property over the Easter period and conditioned the property to a building and pest inspection. With only 7 days (technically 4 minus the public holidays) to arrange the inspection it was pretty stressful. I picked APBI because of all the positive reviews and after seeing a sample of the report which is clear and details exactly what they will check for each area of the property. In addition the quote was provided upfront on the website and I know exactly what I will get and how much I will pay which is a very reasonable price compared to all the other quotes that I got. When I made my booking, they were available on the same day and the staff on the phone grab the details, the rest, APBI took care of and arranged with the agent. After inspection my inspector happily provided information and recommendations to me when I called twice. The advice was helpful and helped me to negotiate a concession for the price for repairs. The only feedback I have is that ABPI is not bookable on the weekend and public holidays so might not help if you have a tight deadline. Also I wasn't notified that the inspection was completed therefore I had to follow up to confrm. Other than that great company and people to deal with."

Photos are clear and explained why it's needed to be fix under Australian Guidance and Tolerance. if you build a house I advise you use them- it will your time and heaps of money.

They liaised directly with Real-estate agent and completed the inspection promptly and issued the report the next day. The report was very comprehensive and easy to interpret. They gave very objective comments as well as an overall slightly more subjective comment which was re-assuring to know that the house presented well. Booking, payment and receiving the report were all super easy to complete and pricing was well less than several other companies i got quotes from. Overall, very satisfied and happy to recommend to others purchasing a property."

      "The service provided was friendly, prompt and clear to understand. The team went out of their way to accommodate an inspection that needed to be done immediately. This was then followed up with a call from the inspector who answered the questions I had regarding some details in the report. I couldn?t recommend them more highly and will definitely be returning should I ever need another inspection."
