What our clients have to say

  • Staged Building Inspection

    In addition to the specific details of any minor problems provided at each stage of the build, we found Nick's advice on the overall build process (and hints on potential issues to be aware of) to be a great help, and that it gave us additional confidence that everything would remain on track.

    Duncan Craig
  • Staged Building Inspection

    It was really valuable to have someone in the trade to advise on issues that were way out of my expertise. Nick provided great advice and options and kept the builders accountable on issues I would never have considered.

    Kathy R
  • Staged Building Inspection

    Provided excellent detailed reports and good customer service.

    Dean Clohessy
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Communication was great the entire process. I initially submitted an enquiry online which I received a phone call the following day and a quote was provided. When I was ready to book my inspection, I called and within 10 minutes I had my booking. The team are really great to work with, easy going and really accommodating. Nothing is too hard for any of the team. I spoke directly to my inspector Nick who talked me through my results and offered ways to resolve any issues. Just the clarification needed as the reports are quite comprehensive. Over all a great service that I would recommend to anyone needing an inspection done.

  • Building Inspection

    Nick was so comforting. He listened to me and told me exactly what he was doing and why. I can't imagine what kind of nightmare we would be living in had we not hired Nick.

    I would recommend Nick and this company to anyone in a heartbeat.

    I could not fault Nick one bit.

    All you need when inspecting your home is to know why things are the way they are. Our builders couldn't give us the reasons but Nick explained everything and it all made sense.

    Thank you so much Nick and the amazing, friendly staff at BIA!

  • Pre-sale Inspection

    Excellent prior and post inspection customer service. Professional and friendly. Respond to phone call and queries promptly. Comprehensive and extensive report. Spent time explaining the reports. Thank you for making the buying process smoother.

    Tania Carpinelli
  • Building Inspection

    From my first phone call it has been a pleasure dealing with you guys. Samantha in the office was efficient and prompt and the report Nick provided was incredibly detailed. Well worth the money!

    Thanks again.

    Marie Martin
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Thank you very much to Carol who was very accommodating and understanding with our booking for a pre purchase inspection, we had some challenges with getting access to the property which resulted in a number of tentative bookings until we had a day confirmed. During the inspection Nick was very helpful in sharing his observations and providing explanation about his findings etc, and working in together with the Pest inspection.

    Thank you very much.

    Carmen Baker
  • Building Inspection

    Nick carried out a thorough inspection of the house and land and thanks to him I am aware of some problems that need to be addressed before purchase which I had not been aware of and in all truth wouldn't have known where to start.

    Thank you Nick.

  • One of the best things I like about Nick's and Samantha's service is speed. There's no waiting around for bookings, or meetings, or reports. Phone calls and emails are made in double time! The building reports are accurate, detailed, well-illustrated, and respected in the industry. If I think "building inspection", I think automatically Building Inspectors Adelaide. It's a no-brainer.
