Welcome to Express Building & Pest Inspections Wakeley
Express PrePurchase carries out Building and Pest Inspections throughout all of Australia. At Express, we understand the pressure and time restraints of purchasing a property and making the right choice, therefore we will further develop your understanding of buildings resulting in the best possible property decision.
As a result of our service innovation, our customers are now provided with a detailed building and pest inspection report that is unbiased within 24 hours of the PrePurchase inspection. Our building reports and pest reports are comprehensive and at the same time easy to understand and follow. They include a summary, conclusion and photographs.
Express Building & Pest Inspections Wakeley believes that professional and well-mannered inspectors are essential in giving our customers the best possible home inspection. All Express inspectors are highly trained, professional indemnity insured building inspection professionals.
