  • Pre-Purchase Building Inspection


    I just wanted to touch base to thank you for the time, effort and attention to detail that went in to this report. It was over and above what I was expecting.

    I am pleased to advise I secured the property at auction today and the building report played a role in making this decision.

    I also greatly appreciated how personable the team member I spoke to on the phone was when I contacted to book the inspection. It made the experience much easier.

    I would definitely recommend you to others.

    Kind regards

  • Staged Building Inspections

  • Building Inspection

    Amazingly fast, efficient and informative service, thank you.

    Karen Hocking
  • 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.

    Donna Powell
  • 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!

    Tahlia Canzler
  • Pre-Purchase 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.

    Elaine Gray
  • 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.

    Rob Steventon
  • Building Inspection

    Nick Begg explained in great detail what he could do for us and what our rights were in regard to our 3 monthly after build inspection. As we had quite a few areas of concern his help was invaluable and gave us peace of mind.

    The report has already been of great help e.g. in regard to the pink bats not being correct; and this was fixed a few days ago; the difference is amazing. 37c and we didnt need the air conditioner on. We cannot think of anything you could improve on.

    We still have quite a few problems but we feel confident with Nick's help. We cannot thank you enough for your support.

    Michael David Foreman
  • Building Inspection

    What can be improved on? Absolutely nothing!

    My first and last contact was with Carol and she was lovely and efficient. She advised me that BIA was fully booked, and that a contractor Travis would do the inspection and would be in his own car.

    Travis presented in a professional manner and the verbal feedback he provided was excellent. I arrived 1hr 15 after he started his inspection, and he was still on site and walked me through the property pointing out the minor issues, and educated me on a number of maintenance requirements.

    The report provided within hours of the inspection was comprehensive and extremely informative, and price competitive.

    Fantastic service - could not be more impressed.

    Amanda Jackson
  • Building Inspection

    I couldn't be happier with the care and service received on both occasions I have used BIA.

    From Carol to Nick and Travis, the time and patience taken go beyond expectations. The surveys themselves were meticulous and explained clearly with excellent advice and guidance.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

    Susan Curyer
  • Building Inspection

    Very clear and detailed report provided. Professional manner and prompt arrival. Answered all of our questions and we felt much more comfortable going into our final handover.

    Greg Olbrich
  • Building Inspection

    Mr Nick Begg came and completed a thorough inspection of my home, internally and externally. Nothing was left out in the report which was completed with good detail, and easy to understand.

    I was also given good advice on how to rectify these problems. He also assured me that these problems were minor. However, if I didn't want to fix the problems myself, he gave me the relevant contact/s to who would be able to help. His knowledge and understanding of the building trade was brilliant, explaining each defect in easy to understand language.

    I won't hesitate to recommend him to family and friends, and will most definitely phone again should I need an inspection for any future house purchase. A small price to pay for piece of mind. Thank you.

    Suzanne Jackson
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Great communication from the organisation of the event to the summary call on completion of inspection.

    Building report is user friendly and well presented. Thank you for the seamless experience.

    Jason Whitehead
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Totally happy with both inspections Nick has done - very thorough.

    Natalie Krueger
  • Building Inspection

    Fantastic communication from all staff, friendly and knowledgeable. Quick to book and contacted the agent to organise his availability. Stress free, information on inspection sent prior and confirmation sent as soon as all parties involved contacted. Very compherensive inspection, with photographs and written explanations of what has to be done now and in future to maintain the property. Very impressed will use again if need and would recommend there services without hesitation. Thank you from myself and my son Jarrod whom the inspection was for. The agent was also very impressed by your professional service.

    Michelle Reynolds
  • Pre-sale Inspection

    Your service was prompt, and the building report very detailed and professional.

    I was very impressed and would recommend your service, without hesitation.

    Charles Kovacs
  • Building Inspection

    It was great having Nick talk us through the issues in our new house purchase immediately following the inspection and show us first hand exactly what areas he thought needed work.

    The report is very comprehensive, and it is helpful to have the photo's he took for future reference.

    Overall an excellent experience, would definitely recommend.

    Tracy Marshall
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Provided exactly the information that we were looking for, can't speak highly enough of the service and the detail

    Jason Conroy
  • Building Inspection

    Excellent service, very fast, efficient and friendly. The cost of the inspection was very good too.

    The report was explained on site and emailed with pictures detailing all items very shortly after.

    Thanks very much, highly recommended. I will definitely use Building Inspectors Adelaide again.

    Locky O
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    I had an inspection done when my son bought a house last year. Your inspection was far superior. I can't think of anything that need improvement. Easy to make appt, punctual, thorough and emailed report promptly.

    Sarah Rawlinson
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    The whole experience was actually a pleasure: an easy booking system and confirmation process; attention to detail during the inspection; ease of communication and feedback was great, and suggestions to address problem areas much appreciated; the follow up and quick delivery of reports was terrific.

    Overall, very pleasant and easy to deal with.

    A great website too, written in simple, easy to understand language about the services you provide and what I could expect as a client. A breath of fresh air! Keep on doing it!!

    Karen Shepherd
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Both Nick and James where very thorough and efficient and explained everything to detail. We are very happy with everything that was inspected,and the report was very accurate.

    We cant think of anything that they could improve on, and I would recommend your service to anyone, well worth the money spent.

    Having a same day turnaround on the report is a bonus.

    kind regards

    Craig & Brenda

    Craig LeDuff
  • Building Inspection

    Thorough report with useful information regarding the resolution of any defects identified. Friendly team and great customer service!

    Kerry Enright
  • Building Inspection

    Very pleased.

    I felt Nick had advice that would help me do exactly what was needed to maintain this old property.

    De-arne Rentz
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Extremely impressed with the professionalism, and service provided. The follow up on questions about the inspection findings and overall helpfulness was above and beyond.

    Would not hesitate to recommend/refer to people.

    Michael Wallace
  • Building & Pest Inspection

    We looked at a lot of houses going to auction and had three building inspections conducted (three different houses).

    We were really impressed with how quickly Samantha organised last minute inspections, and also with Nick's detailed explanations and helpful customer service. Nick was always happy to chat onsite about the smaller details and gave us honest assessments we could trust.

    It helped us to feel confident in our final purchase.


    Kate & Ramon
  • Staged Building Inspection

    We engaged Nick's services at the recommendation of a friend who called him in at handover stage. A number of defects were identified, included some that would not have been so difficult to fix if picked up at the time. She said she wished she had had a building inspector through the whole process.

    We decided on a full staged inspection regime, to have Nick's support, guidance and professional standing with us along the entire build. Nick was pro active, suggesting on-site meetings with the builder's site supervisor and ourselves, from introductory through to handover stage as well as at ad-hoc points to discuss particular issues needing resolution. He dropped by outside of stages for visual inspections, called the site supervisor occasionally on our behalf to ascertain progress/timings, met with us on weekends, gave us translations of building speak and options when choices needed to be made and generally advocated for us. Nick was truly on our side, he kept the builder accountable and us informed.

    His advice went beyond the build itself to our proposed earthworks and he made suggestions that improved the utility of our block and ensured that retaining walls did their job.

    In the context of the most money we will ever spend on anything in our lives, we feel that having Nick as our building inspector was an unquestionably worthwhile investment.

    Scott & Laura
  • Building Inspection

    Overall the service was very easy to use and hassle free. Thanks for the excellent service.

  • Building & Pest Inspection

    I am very impressed with the service offered. The inspection reports are thorough and easy to understand and delivered promptly.

    The opportunity to speak to the inspectors (in our case Nick and James) afterwards for clarification was extremely helpful and Samantha was great to deal with when organising the booking.

  • Pre-Purchase Inspection

    Excellent prompt service at an excellent price. Friendly and polite at all times.

    Would definitely be happy to recommend your services.

  • Building Inspection

    The inspection service was excellent. Great communication and fast service.

  • Pre-Purchase Inspection

    Thankyou Nick. We appreciate the time that you gave us. You provided us with some excellent ideas and a plan ahead.

    Many thanks

  • Pre-Purchase Inspection

    Thank you for coming out to look at the property - it definitely pays to have an inspection!

    I was able to bring a builder to quote the necessary work and was able to secure an additional discount on the property.

    Once again, thank you for your help


  • Building & Pest Inspection

    Good morning,

    I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude in your services both prior to and post inspections. Your services were extremely professional and Justin and I just wanted to let you know we will keep you in mind for our next inspection, should we require you again.

    We decided to cool off after discovering that the wet area extension did not have council approval. It was very unfortunate as we fell in love with property, however we both considered the funds we paid for the service you provided were the best investment that we could of made and we thank you for all your assistance.

    Again thank you so much and we will recommend your business to anyone we know.

    Justin and Alicia
  • Building Inspection

    Nick was very thorough and I was very happy with his input.

  • Pre-Purchase Inspection

    Hi Nick,

    I wanted to let you know that thanks to your thorough inspection and picking up on a few small things that we didn't notice - no guttering on pergola, possible foundation damage - we managed to save another $1000 off of the negotiated price!

    This essentially means that by spending money on your services, we saved big time.

    So, from Tash and I, thanks!

    Aaron - Littlehampton
  • Pre-Purchase Inspection

    Hi Nick

    Thank you very much for the report on the property and your time on the phone last evening.

    Your professional manner has been much appreciated and helped us make a well informed decision regarding the property.

    We would not hesitate to use your services again and would not be able to recommend you highly enough to others.

    Thanks again for everything.

    Graham and Jacqui - Collingswood
  • Pre-Purchase Inspection

    Hi Nick,

    Firstly thank you for being able to produce this report so quickly, it certainly helps with only being a week away from settlement.

    Thank you for the information on the defects guidelines over the next 3 + months, as well as the concrete guide lines, they both will be a big help to us.

    In conclusion, Di & I would like to thank you very much for your very professional detailed reports along with the way you conducted yourself and your business at our meetings.

    There is no way that Di & I have the expertise as you do, so once again thank you. We will have no hesitation in recommending your services to our family and friends.

    Ron & Di - Balhannah
