The report is very detailed with photos included..Good value for money coz i have enquired with other building and pest inspection company and its quite expensive.

    APBI were extraordinary professional and efficient. We booked them on a Tuesday for a Thursday review. By Friday we had received the full report which enabled us to get our new home purchased. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

    "We used apbi to conduct a pre-purchase building and pest inspection. We were very happy with the service provided. Our inspection was done thoroughly and review provided quickly which assisted with a tight timeline. We couldn't pass apbi up as there prices were the most competitive after completing several quotes. We highly recommend apbi and will utilise again." Felicity

    I purchased the Completion Stage inspection. Compared to other building inspection companies, APBI were one of the cheapest and you get what you pay for. The report picked up on general things, mostly cosmetic which i suppose is a good sign of the quality of the build. However, a good portion of the report consisted of things that i picked up myself and informed the inspector of which made me feel like i wasn't getting my money's worth. Overall, the service was good, inspector was on time and i received the report within a couple of hours.

    i had my completion inspection with brad few wks ago. brad was able to point out a lot of things for the builder to repair. he was there on time and he spent time to keenly check on every corners of the house. he took lots of clear photos for me to based on when i check the house again. over all im happy with their service and have already recommended them to some of my friends who are also waiting for their houses to complete.

    The inspection was very thorough and report quite impressive in the level of detail. Using the report, I was able to negotiate a number of repairs to the property at vendor?s expense.

    Great services.. really glad that I got them to inspect my house construction. They really have eyes on details.. money worth to spent on. Thanks.

    -  Gemmy Timotius

  • 11 November 2018

    It is a feeling of comfort and assurance to have an external building inspector come to the party. They observe structural components and general defects that I would not have thought to assess. My inspector picked up on gutters being attached incorrectly, which has saved me thousands of dollars in the near future. Definitely worth the money to have a professional set of eyes on your property before handover. I strongly recommend APBI!!

    -  Vanessa P

  • 06 November 2018

    I needed a fast turnaround on a property inspection prior to auction. The team at APBI were extremely prompt in their responses and were able to provide me with a full inspection and report within 72 hours. I was very happy with their service and would look to use them again when needed.

    We recently had a building and pest report done on a property in Healesville. From our first point of contact with APBI to recieving our report it has all been smooth sailing. I gave all the details at the start of the process and they looked after the rest!!! The report was returned within a day of the inspection. It was very thorough and covered all basis!! Thanks again Andrew and Sam

    -  Daniel Jenkins

  • 28 October 2018

    Had no isssues with APBI l, they were easy to call up, make an appointment, invoiced emailed to you for continence, report was sent the same day as inspection. Cost factor, for building and pest, was really good I thought. Overall I would recommend this company to others.

    -  Stephanie Van Ginneken

  • 28 October 2018

    This company has done great service for us. They are very diligent in making follow ups for appointment with our builder. Great job indeed. Will surely recommend them to others.

  • 25 October 2018

    I have been very happy with all the inspections done by APBI from Base to Completion stage during my home construction. The inspectors from APBI were experienced professionals and they gave a thorough report on all the defects identified. The turnaround time for the report was very quick as well (less than 24 hrs from the time of inspection) with clear indications and photos to illustrate the defects. Will definitely recommend them!

    -  nashadzone

  • 25 October 2018

    I am happy with APBI services they provided. They inspected the property in detail and covered all the corners of the property.

  • 19 October 2018

    We had a building and pest inspection. Was very easy to organise, simply called up and the inspector came to the property the next afternoon. I received the report the following morning. The report was lengthy and included lots of photos. I was waiting for a phone call from the inspector post inspection but did not receive one. However, when they email the report across, they made it clear I could give them a call if needed.

    -  Laura Ahokas

  • 18 October 2018

    Very happy with the service they provided. The report was clear and easy to read and received it same day of the inspections. would highly recommend if you are building in the Geelong Area. 5 stars!

    -  gary onans

  • 18 October 2018

    Overall ok but for the price paid the report was a bit of a letdown. The staff were helpful and the booking process was easy, but I feel that the report was lacking in information. The photos were low quality and there was limited information about the perceived structural defects / pest issues discovered during the inspection. I do feel if the inspector had taken a bit more time, provided a few more photos and a written bit more detail it would have been better.

    -  Tom Waymouth

  • 18 October 2018

    I found the whole process of booking , paying & receiving building report very friendly & easy . The service was prompt , the building inspector was professional , non intrusive & answered queries on the day . I would recommend APBI - thank you

    Really happy with the service provided and was able to answer any queries we had. We had a bit of a problem with our build, and inspector came out to have a look at issues and provided good feedback to our builder to rectify the problem. Thanks for your services!

  • 07 October 2018

    We paid to access a report that had recently been completed. The report was high quality and thorough with lots of information and photographs, though it was a little disappointing that there wasn't more of a discount on price given all that was being done was emailing us an already completed report.

    -  Richard Seglenieks

  • 07 October 2018

    I recently involved APBI to do pre handover inspection. Not that their inspector was professional but his service impressed me. In the future, I shall involve them at the fixed stage of the build work.

    -  Syed Shanto

  • 01 October 2018

    Very happy with my final home inspection, will definitely recommend to any one building a new home. The inspectors are excellent at their job and extremely efficient.

  • 30 September 2018

    It was quick, smooth and easy to organise building inspections. Reports was delivered within few hours. It was comprehensive and easy to decipher. Thanks APBI.

    -  Abitha Prasanna

  • 27 September 2018

    We wanted to know the status of the house as we had a few issues with our new building approx. (8 yrs old). I wanted a building inspection report and the pest inspection was thrown in as an extra.The APBI inspector was prompt and the inspection was done thoroughly. We were unprepared for the visit as we were juggling a few renovating ideas of our own and should have asked Greg as to what we had to prepare for his visit as the house was untidy. As a suggestion it would be easy if the inspector told us as to what would be the proper way to present the house for inspection. The report was comprehensive and released quickly. Hopefully will get the results from the builders even though the house has passed its warranty period. Thanks much appreciated. Hopefully

  • 25 September 2018

    Australian Property & Building Inspections was great. They were prompt in arranging an Inspector and their report was extremely comprehensive.

    -  Eddie Prins

  • 24 September 2018

    very easy and efficient service. the inspector himself was friendly, approachable and professional. as first time home owners with no prior knowledge or background whatsoever in house building, its stress relieving and reassuring that someone will help you get through the final inspection and look at what needs to be rectified or draw attention to. we coudn?t have seen all those details by ourselves. :)

    -  Rojan Marku Badon

  • 24 September 2018

    We have recently used APBI and would highly recommend them. Very prompt and efficient and the report, which was thorough and very detailed, was emailed to us the next working day.

  • 23 September 2018

    Very prompt service. Was really easy to book, and had a report complete with photos the day after the inspection. The inspector did note that he was unable to view the laundry recess as the doors were jammed and would not open. I went to the property a few days later to see what caused this but cold identify no such problem, and also noted the inspector hadn't observed the faucet was completely unscrewed from the bathroom sink. Did make me feel a bit worried about the inspection, but honestly the inspector was very prompt in responding to my email enquiries and seems to have otherwise can thorough. Thanks very much ?

  • 18 September 2018

    Horrible Customer Service! They had an offer on their website for Pest And Building report for $280+ GST however when i requested their services they refused to honor the price. They indicated that it had finished however it was still visible on their website. The manager refused to accept that this was a misrepresentation and wouldn't assist me. Bad customer service 101!

    -  Joshua Juhas

  • 17 September 2018

    very friendly staff, i wasn't sure how the arrangements works and left a message to them at online forms, one of the customer support staff contacts me in less than 30 mins. The report is very comprehensive including lots of detailed inspection points. Thankfully the inspection experts spot a major issue in the structure , that helps us to readjust our bidding budget. very helpful in terms of decision making.

    Booking the building & pest inspection through the ABPI website was very user-friendly. Price is upfront and so are the inclusions and exclusions for the service. I received a call soon after booking online & ABPI organised directly with the estate agent per our request. Report received within 24 hours after inspection & inspector Greg was helpful with some questions I had about the report findings. Happy to recommend ABPI & use their services again in the future!

    Booked for final inspection. Booking was very easy. Inspection was also ok.

    -  Sach

  • 10 September 2018

    I was not very impresssed. I booked a frame inspection but they didn?t ask for the engineering drawing but I made sure I sent them couple of days before the inspection. However, the office has not passed it on to the inspector & accepted it was an error on their behalf. When I questioned the completeness of the report I got, manager claims they only do visual inspections. I wouldn?t recommend APBI. There are other private inspectors which charges little bit more but I think it?s worth it. Once you make the payment, APBI does not care about you. You will be very lucky if you could contact the inspector. Never bothers to call back.

    -  Irhaan Bary

  • 06 September 2018

    The APBI team gave us fantastic service and perfect opinion as well as building and pest inspection report. The charge was reasonable and they provided detailed report. Will definitely use them next time and recommend them to others.


  • 06 September 2018

    Good clear communication, prompt with responses and very detailed report with pictures. Also spoke to the Inspector post reviewing report and he was happy to discuss. Thanks APBI

    -  Andy Gupta

  • 05 September 2018

    I had a very good experience with this company for my building inspection. The inspector was very friendly and cordial. The only thing I would ask them is to gather more information about the house before they get there. They should ask for architectural plans before getting on the site. Also, they do not measure the house.

    -  Luca Aliberti

  • 05 September 2018

    The quote for the new home inspection was amongst the cheaper ones in the market but you probably get the expected level of service and quality of the work for that cost. Nonetheless, value for money inspection work if you are looking for a peace of mind!

    -  Chris Toh

  • 05 September 2018

    Professional, accurate and quick. Thanks to the inspection report I discovered an issue that I did not see and that now the vendor is fixing before the sale! Great service

    I arranged for APBI to carry out a pre-auction inspection of a property we were interested in. They provided hassle-free service and made everything easy. The report was pretty detailed and helped us decide to purchase the property. Thanks!

    -  Holly Havers

  • 05 September 2018

    Informed the inspector about the roof title, he didn't put it on the report. Was very quick in doing the assessment. We found more issues on the painting than the inspector. It was waste money. Cheers

  • 27 August 2018

    No dramas. Smooth process. Price was reasonable. Report was detailed and helpful. I needed one done quickly and they managed to do one the following day. After the inspection was completed, the inspection report is ready in 24hrs. But I needed to know about the property sooner, I rang them up and they gave me the inspector's mobile number so that I could get an idea asap! Builder inspector was friendly on the phone. Admin staff were also friendly and helpful on the phone. I will continue to use their service.

    APBI were amazing to deal with. We recently purchased our weatherboard home and wanted an itemised approach to a building inspection that would enable us to speak to the appropriate trades person on repair, maintenance and improvements to the property. Our inspector who arrived at the property was timely, detailed and was happy to walk through and talk to his suggestions. Thank you again for being so easy to deal with.

    We engaged APBI for a recent prospective purchase. The customer service was excellent. The rate charged was very reasonable, the report detailed. Slightly disappointed that aspects of the inspection were reported as ? could not be accessed? and that we couldn?t get to chat with the builder. Overall not bad.

    APBI is very fast and highly responsive. It was so easy to put in my order and the staff after taking all the details were very cooperative and coordinated it really well. The best part was I got the entire report within 24 hours which was detailed enough and in easy to understand format. Thanks APBI for your service....

    I was really impressed with the service of APBI. I rang them on a Thursday, was so impressed with the price I just booked straight away instead of getting any other quotes, and the inspection was done the following Monday. I was kept up to date throughout the whole process by both text and email. On the Tuesday I was told the report was ready, I paid and received it straight away. It was very detailed with lots of photos. Would highly recommend this company.

    We had an excellent experience with APBI. We asked for a next day inspection and received immediate correspondence via text and email We also received a follow up call by phone. The inspector dealt with the estate agent directly and we were also able to ask questions and discuss the inspection report once completed. Superb service!

    Would give no stars if I could. Not happy, let me book in a particular inspection required for the sale of my investment property. Noticed had been charged twice so called to find out what was going on. Was then told the inspection I required was not offered at my location. I wonder if they would have even called. Said they would refund me when they had time. Had to make contact via email and phone another 3 times before anything was done. Finally got notification of refund via email. Money still has not gone into my bank account so I am over $900.00 out of pocket waiting to get my money back. Was not offered an apology once. It?s funny how they get your money instantly but when it needs to be returned you are told ?it will depend on your back, I don?t know when you will get your money back?.

    I would like to thank Australian Property and building inspections for the A grade customer service provided.

    We highly recommend APBI if you are searching for a thorough building and pest inspection prior to purchasing property. Greg Sparrius was extremely professional, answered all queries we had. He also provided education and recommendation regarding building status. The standard of inspection and meticulous report reflects the standard of professionalism APBI provide. We couldn?t be more happy with the quality of their service, it took no time to organise an inspection and the report was generated extremely quickly (2-4) hours. I would give 10/ 5 star if that were possible. Thank you Greg and APBI, we will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and family.

    Quick turnaround time. Excellent pick up of defects that led to rectifications by vendor before settlement. Highly recommended and will definitely use this service again.

  • 05 May 2018

    The Inspector did not inspect the roof of a one level house. He mentioned the window were locked so could not access roof. We were at the property, but this was not mentioned. We or he could have asked the vendor if we could unlock the window to get to the roof for inspection. Even the main door was locked, so we did not return. We knocked on the door and asked we are here for inspection and need access to the property. I think the property inspector should be a little bit more pro active. He was nice and friendly person. But I think he could have done a bit more.

  • 30 April 2018

    We were mostly happy with our experience getting a building & pest inspection through this company. It was easy to book, and they sent through a detailed report with images. The only thing that could have been improved was the customer service over the phone. I had to call the day before the inspection to discuss a potential cancellation, and despite trying to explain the situation a few times, the person on the phone didn?t seem to understand me (possibly language barrier as she had a strong accent?). I ended up giving up on the conversation and thankfully we didn?t need to cancel in the end and left the booking as it was.

    -  Michelle Howard

  • 16 April 2018

    APBI I found to be very efficient and helpful and attentive when I needed them very quickly due to a time constraint after the building inspection had occurred. I was able to contact the inspector directly and ask further questions whom was extremely helpful and reassuring. I would not hesitate in using APBI again.

    -  Nic Harris

  • 14 April 2018

    From beginning to end Australian Property and Building Inspections were organised, professional and completed every element of the inspection as promised. Our inspector was friendly and took the time to explain his findings before he wrote the report. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for honest and sound building advice.

    -  Clare Jones

  • 19 March 2018

    Experienced wonderful customer service when I called up for a building inspection. APBI coordinated the inspection time with the real estate agent and within 48 hours I received an informative building and pest inspection report. Went with APBI for an inspection on different property and used their online booking service. Website is easy to navigate, booking an inspection is straight forward and again received an informative and timely report. Initially chose APBI as they were competitively priced compared with other companies I had been quoted from. I highly recommend APBI for their great customer service and great value for money.

    -  Alexander Dyson

  • 10 March 2018

    Used them for a building and pest inspection. Building inspector was rude and did not want to answer my questions. Could have been a bit more professional and was talking to the realestate agent more when I bloody paid this dam buisness for my report! And the worst was the pest inspector, Rick from termipro who is. Fraud!! Have his pamphlet during the inspection and said would do a termite and pest treatment as a precautionary. He charged us and then did not give us the certificate and did not honor the warranty. Cancelled on us twice with no calls or messages to say so or why? And now we have an ant issue in our kitchen after the supposed pest treatment from this man who APBI uses! I understand the pest man Rick is a separate buisness but this buisness APBi uses them which shows what a fraud and sham this company is too!!! Good luck with cheating home buyers around Victoria!!!!

    -  Shree Rao

  • 05 March 2018

    I found APBI excellent to deal with. They were professional, reasonably priced and had a quick turnaround time on their report. I was also able to speak directly to the building inspector after I received the report to clarify some issues that had been raised in the report, which gave me further confidence in the property. I would not hesitate to use their services again.

  • 31 January 2018

    I am not completely satisfied with the inspection. As per the report they have advised that there was some major defect but there is only one photo and just one sentence advising that major defect. My suggestion would be if for any major defects we need more evidence and also more photos in other angles to show that defect so that we can determine the extent of the damage in-order to make a wise decision. On the phone the inspector advised that the expansion joints were not there but the report has not stated any of this information which has been provided over the phone. It would be great if all the information is reflected in the report.

    -  Manchukonda Pavithra

  • 19 January 2018

    The report provided by APBI was extremely thorough and allowed us to make a confident decision about buying the property. Thanks to the report we were able to renegotiate the purchase price due to items detailed in the report needing work. The online booking process was so easy and the report arrived so quickly after the inspection time I was really impressed.

    We had to be quick in getting a pest and building inspection carried out on a property. Greg was polite, helpful and friendly and the inspection was comprehensive and informative, with Greg willing to discuss everything with me as soon as he had carried out the inspection.The formal reports were easy to understand and there was no hesitation in suggesting we could contact George for more information if we did not understand something or had more to discuss. Very pleased with the service and would highly recommend.

  • 24 November 2017

    I had to get my home inspected for pest and building before the cooling off period and approached these guys. They got my inspection arranged the next day. But my agent messed up the schedule, and the inspection had to be postponed to the next day. APBI orgnaised all this for me without glitch. The inspectors were so kind and approachable. As the reports would take 24 hours, the inspectors explained everything verbally which gave us immense confidence to buy the house. Would highly recommend. The only problem I had was reaching them over the phone sometime could take longer. I had to hold the line for 5 mins to findout that everyone has gone for lunch one day. And the other time it took them so much time to even attend to me on the phone. Other than these two occasions it was all fine.

    Used APBI for a building inspection in October 2017. The report was thorough (plenty of pictures and descriptions) and prepared quickly (24 hours). The inspection picked up a number of different areas that needed some minor repairs that wasn't included in the report prepped by the vendors. Have a copy printed ready to go for when I eventually move into my new digs so that I can fix everything up. Would use APBI again*. * If I win money and can afford another house that is!

  • 29 September 2017

    Recently had Australian Prop & Building inspections conduct a building & pest inspection on a house that we ended up buying. The building report pointed out everything we already knew as well as a few other items, although theres no guarantees in life it was good to get a qualified professional to look at the building structure. The pest report cleared any concerns about termites, but highlighted that they had been active in a tree stump at the rear of the property & provided some suggested solutions to minimise risk of termites impacting the house structure. The only criticism is that the inspection was limited to what was easily visual, no furniture was moved or electrical testing was conducted. Overall fairly happy with the service provided

    -  Mountain Man

  • 26 September 2017

    APBI provided great service. Not only were they reasonably priced, they produced a clear report in a short timeframe and Brendan was able to further explain on the phone. Thanks Brendan and APBI!

  • 22 September 2017

    Quick and Easy, I just had to send only one email, they did the rest in ~2 days! very professional and the report you get is well done with pictures and explanations, 4 stars and not 5 just because they cannot test "Services connected to property" , i asked: "We are not licensed plumbers or electricians and as such cannot test these items.not sure if they offer". it would be great if they could include them too, also only a quick "user" test.

  • 16 August 2017

    Martha and the team were exceptional. I required a quick turnaround for a building and pest inspection with short notice - but Martha was able to provide me with the service and building report all within 48 hours. The building inspector was knowledgeable, and the pest inspector was also incredibly helpful. Will definitely be recommending this service to friends and family, and will use them for future property requirements.
