David was exceptional from the first point of contact right up until we received the completed report. He was very professional and easily contactable, whether that be by phone call, text or email. His turnaround was outstanding, both with providing a quote and completing the inspection. I selected him to be my building inspector on Tuesday night and he liaised directly with my real estate agent to organise the inspection and had completed the inspection and sent me the report by Thursday evening. He called straight after the inspection to give a verbal overview and the report was completed to a very high standard (42 pages, included pictures and was very detailed). He was an absolute pleasure to deal with and his customer service was exceptional – offering free consultation right up until settlement. The value for money was fantastic and I would recommend David to everyone!

Biance from Greenwood, 13th July 2015

David arrived on the agreed time. He inspected premises and surroundings of the house in detail. However we weren’t agreed to inspect the electrical wiring and plumbing but he did it without additional costs. Detailed pest inspection report I received the very next day. And that is why this company has earned 10 out of the 10 from my rating list. Good job David and thank you again of being able to deliver the job so professionally!
