I was so impressed with the prompt and professional way they dealt with me for an inspection for a house we were going to purchase that I had them complete an inspection report on a house we were going to sell. I would highly recommend their service. I was notified on their progress on a regular basis.

A Pre-Purchase Building Inspection was performed for my Autistic Son buying his first home. 10/10 in all aspects. These guys were recommended to me by a professional within the home buying industry because they were good, and they were. Highly recommend them and we will be engaging their services again for our other son, once he can find a property to purchase. Keep up the good work 😊

We had a pre-purchase building and pest inspection done. This would have to be the most comprehensive and detailed report we have ever had in all our years of buying and selling. Everything was timely and professional and would not hesitate to recommend these guys to anyone.

Highly recommended!! I recently purchased a unit in Cairns which was made all the more difficult as I lived interstate and was unable to view the property in person. The agent recommended them and I was not disappointed. All Building Inspections were able to visit the property within days, arrange an additional electrical inspection and have the reports to me very quickly. The building and pest report was very comprehensive, easy to read and the accompanying images assisted in my negotiations and final decision. Office staff were professional, helpful and happy to answer questions. They made what could have been a very stressful process much easier. Would absolutely recommend All Building Inspections, especially if you are conducting your business from outside the area.
