Testimonials

Just a quick note to thank you and your company on the timely fashion you were able to complete the Pre Purchase Building & Pest Inspection reports. My wife and I greatly appreciate the willingness to complete the reports at such short notice in order to provide us with an informed decision on the property within the ‘cooling off’ period. We’ll be sure to use and recommend Buy-Wise Inspections Services when needed in the future.

Young - Lysterfield

Just a quick note to say how impressed we were with your services, and we will definately be recommending you to friends, as well as using you again in the future ourselves. You might also like to know that you guys also impressed our conveyancer with the completeness of your report.

D & H Clayton - Berwick

I did ring four other inspection services for quotes after ringing Buy-Wise Inspections Services but straight away felt most comfortable with Buy-Wise Inspections Services. Mainly because my calls at other places were answered by call centre staff, where as my call at Buy-Wise Inspections Services was answered by Peter who gave me confidence that I was speaking with someone who was a builder and actually knew what he was talking about and what was important from the very first call. He was able to offer on the spot advice which the other call centre staff couldn’t. Also, the price wasn’t beaten by any of the other companies I rang.

N. Riemann - Altona North

Your inspection report was very detailed, we have bought and sold quite a few properties in Queensland mainly, and we have never seen a report like yours. It is worth paying extra for the peace of mind for such details and checks. Your customer service was just wonderful also! I did call another company, but had trouble getting through, and the lady who answered for your company was so helpful and professional that I didn’t bother trying to call the other company again. Buy-Wise Inspections Services just made it seem all so easy.

J.Maypeice - Frankston

I chose Buy-Wise Inspections Services because your presentation and professional approach that helped me make the decision, also I was impressed at the time taken to undertake the inspection, only a couple of days which meant I could make a decision quicker. So thanks again and I will be recommending you to any friends who need some help, so thanks again.

C. Ammitzboll - Bittern

The reason we went with buy-wise was you offered a superior and comprehensive service compared to other providers including the dogs. Reports were easy to navigate and we knew exactly what we were getting. Your website also contained all the necessary information to help us decide to use buy-wise. Price was also a factor in our decision and although the quality of service offered far out weighed the price. Also everything was done very smoothly and efficiently.

M. Skewes - Chelsea

First of all thanks for your kind assistance and great service! I’m more than happy to recommend your company to anyone buying property. Promptly reply and friendly service is very important and you provided me with these plus more.

Mrs L. Lucilia - Ferntree Gully

Buywise customer service is excellent. I would highly recommend your company. Everyone I dealt with was extremely helpful and friendly, with prompt and organised service. Your building and pest reports were detailed and Andrew spent considerable time explaining the finer points to me. I found Buy-Wise Inspections Services through an internet search of pre-purchase building inspections. I was attracted to the HIA association and experience of your builders and pest inspectors, the beagle helped too if I’m honest.

Miss S. Roberts - Hastings

We chose Buy-Wise Inspections Services for the convenience of doing both pest and building inspections together, value for money, helpful staff and the ability to fit our inspections in with very short notice (as we left it a little too close to the deadline!). We were very pleased to receive the report so quickly and the colour photos really help explain the comments made by the inspector. Also, the use of Termite Detection Dogs was something we had not come across before but, after reading up on them we had confidence that they would bring us the most accurate results. Coincidentally we also have a Beagle, so have a little soft spot and know how talented they are! We honestly have no suggestions for improvement! The whole process went ahead quickly and smoothly. Thanks to everyone involved – and a special hello to Bluey!

Rebecca and Michael - Wyndham Vale

Thanks for the note and yes I did go ahead with the purchase and feel happy at the way things worked out in the end. It was tricky looking around at all the different places, and in the end I nearly gave up for renting one. It was only once I saw what was out there I decided it was dead money. As far as why I chose Buy-Wise Inspections Services it was actually your presentation and professional approach that helped me make the decision, also I was impressed at the time taken to undertake the inspection, only a couple of days which meant I could make a decision quicker. So thanks again and I will be recommending you to any friends who need some help.

Christopher - Bittern

I found Buy-Wise Inspections Services to be very helpful in booking the inspections in so quickly, the thoroughness of the report was great and when I called to ask some questions your inspectors were very helpful and put my mind at ease. I went with Buy-Wise Inspections Services as I was referred by my Dad who had used you for a property that he purchased in Seaford.

Bernadette - Frankston

First of all thanks for your kind assistance and great service! I’m more than happy to recommend your company to anyone buying property. Prompt reply and friendly service is very important and you provided me with these plus more. Yes, I’m going forward with the purchase. Even though the vendor won’t give me any deduction due to a few things that need attention as per your report, but it’s not major anyway.

Lona - Ferntree Gully

I was very happy with the service, the speed at which the inspection was arranged, and the quality & presentation of the report. The reason I went with Buy-Wise Inspections Services was the quality and amount of information on your website which demonstrated that you weren’t “backyarders” and that inspections were carried out in accordance with the relevant Australian Standards.

Michael - Manifold Heights

We were very happy with the two inspections you conducted for us and found them very helpful. Although there thankfully wasn’t much that needed to be done to the house immediately after settlement apart from a couple of safety issues, it was very helpful to be alerted to other areas we may need to keep an eye on or fix up over time. It gave us great confidence in what we were buying being first time home buyers with no building experience at all!! Definitely worth the money. I did ring four other inspection services for quotes after ringing Buy-Wise Inspections Services but straight away felt most comfortable with Buy-Wise Inspections Services. Mainly because my calls at other places were answered by call centre staff whereas my call at Buy-Wise Inspections Services was answered by Peter who gave me confidence that I was speaking with someone who was a builder and actually knew what he was talking about, and what was important from the very first call. He was able to offer on the spot advice which the other call centre staff couldn’t. Also, the price wasn’t beaten by any of the other companies I rang.

Nikki - Altona

The reason we went with Buy-Wise Inspections Services was you offered a superior and comprehensive service compared to other providers including the dogs. Reports were easy to navigate and we knew exactly what we were getting. Your website also contained all the necessary information to help us decide to use Buy-Wise Inspections Services. Price was also a factor in our decision and although Buy-Wise Inspections Services was not the cheapest option, the quality of service offered far out weighted the price premium. Also everything was done very smoothly and efficiently.

Mark - Chelsea

Buy-Wise Inspections Services customer service is excellent. I would highly recommend your company. Everyone I dealt with was extremely helpful and friendly, with prompt and organised service. Your building and pest reports were detailed and Andrew spent considerable time explaining the finer points to me. I found Buy-Wise Inspections Services through an internet search of pre-purchase building inspections. I was attracted to the HIA association and experience of your builders and pest inspectors, the beagle helped too if I’m honest.

Sam - Hastings

We were very happy with the service we got from Buy Wise Inspections Services. I was amazed at how quickly the inspection was organised. It was good to get the verbal report on the day of the inspection and the written report was thorough and promptly emailed to us the following day. We would definitely use Buy-Wise Inspections Services again.

Pauline - Frankston

On behalf of my girlfriend and myself I would like to thank you and the team at Buy-Wise Inspections Services for a hassle free building inspection process, an informative report and a very quick turn-around time. The information contained in the reports has definitely give us peace of mind and enabled us to make a more informed decision on the purchase of the property. Thanks again we will be recommending you guys when asked who did our building and pest inspection.

Mr B. Page - Chirnside Park

Thanks for your follow-up email. I was indeed successful in the purchase. I would like to thank the whole team at Buy-Wise Inspections Services for the prompt and quality service provided. I will definitely be referring your services to family/friends!

Mr G. Chin - Campberwell

Thanks so much for your help – we found the report to be very helpful and our conveyancers have since arranged for them to fix the pool fence due to your findings. We were very impressed with the thoroughness of the report.

Ms C. Henderson - Berwick

We went through the house on Tuesday with the building report – very helpful! Please thank the person who completed the report. It was good to have someone else’s eye looking over things. We did also go ahead with the purchase! Thank you for all of your help.

Ms H. Shaw - Carrum Downs

Thank you so much for the outstanding Reports you completed for us, and inspecting and providing estimates on our prospective new investment property in Cranbourne. The reports were really thorough and included photos which was fantastic. It really exceeded our expectations after other reports we have received from other Inspection Companies when buying investment properties. The use of Bluey your Termite Inspection Dog was amazing and I can’t believe how good he was. It is really an amazing concept and I recommend him any time. Basically, due to your organization’s skills and the detailed information provided to us in less than 24 hours, we just saved over $10,000 in repairs on this property! Your professionalism is to be commended, not to mention the Dog who we truly loved and your turn around time was fantastic. Thank you again and I will highly recommend you to family and friends!

Mr S. Buchanan - Sandringham, Victoria

Thanks so much for all your help and also everyone at Buy-Wise Inspections Services. It’s been wonderful to have such friendly people helping us out amidst all the house purchasing stress and craziness. Thanks also for the referral to Martin – he’s been very friendly, professional and helpful.

Ms S. Hayes - Research

Thank you very much for your prompt and thorough service. I was very relieved that you were able to fit in our Pre-purchase inspections at very short notice on the Monday before Cup Day! Please pass on my thanks to your team who were very helpful and friendly, and the reports were excellent. Although there were no major issues with the house, your reports will be very helpful to us for the ongoing maintenance of our new home.

Ms A. Harkin - Bentleigh

I was very impressed with the preparation, professionalism, efficiency, attention to detail, enthusiasm, and helpful guidance freely given to avoid small issues escalating in the future. The broad brush cost estimates of any work needed is particularly handy. Your company was chosen after an Internet search and telephone interviews to the shortlist – Some companies were reluctant to provide an explanation of the service to be provided – Some “Poo Hooed” the dog story when asked if they offered this service – However, in all aspects, including the comprehensive reports, Buy-Wise Inspections Services made me most happy with my choice of your company. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone that I come into contact with. “The Beagle” performed in the same manner as the rest of the team, highly efficient, and was not rewarded just for going through a show routine, and as explained, would only have got a treat if a termite possible scent had been found. Of interest, we had a company complete an inspection last year on another property, and although adequate, it did not reach the levels of excellence yours achieved.

Mr J. Griffiths - Frankston South

Fantastic company – really helped us out when we needed a fast pest and building inspection. Thorough reports, very happy customers. Thank you, Alisa and Peter Jack

Ali - Berwick

Excellent company to deal with. From the moment I called to inquire about their services they provide I was happy with their high level of customer service. They provided me with all the information I required and asked all my questions. The day of inspection the guys turned up on time and were very professional and willing to ask all my questions as they inspected the house. Very happy with the service we received from Buy-Wise Inspections Services. Highly recommend them.

Catherine - Mt Eliza

I was recommended by my mortgage broker to go with buy wise inspections. I did my research first and all internet reviews were A1. So I ordered a termite and building inspection through these guys. The price was good, the service and the report were excellent. The report was very detailed and my money could not have been better spent. On top of all this they travelled to Inverloch. Thanks Guys.

Cam - Inverloch

Engaged Buy-Wise Inspections Services to do my building and termite inspections and I was very satisfied with my service. Their friendly staff explained all the costs involved and I was happy with the quote they gave me. Reports came back from the inspections very promptly, and they were comprehensive- filled with photos and documentation, regardless of whether there was a defect or everything was okay. Their staff took time to explain everything in the report. Very happy with the service and would highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of hassle free and prompt service especially when you are investing in your dream future home.

Srikanth - Caulfield North

Chosen this company after a careful consideration. People from the beginning to the end were all pleasant to deal with. Inspection report presented in detailed and satisfactory level. Happy with the service they provided. I shall recommend them to other people and friends for building inspection.

Amarpreet - Mentone

I needed an Inspection done within the 3 day cooling off period after purchasing a house. I called them pronto. Great Service, Great Communicators, Very Thorough with their reports. Next Day Service and Report sent that night. Couldn’t ask for more than that.

Gigliotti - Patterson Lakes

Easy to deal with. Had 2 inspections done and both were hassle free. Kept updated on everything and the report is VERY VERY thorough. Glad we got the first one done as the house wasn’t in good shape and we decided not to buy it. Great company. Highly recommended

Davies - Cranbourne

Very satisfied with my pre-purchase Building & Pest Inspection from Buy-Wise Inspections Services. Their friendly staff explained all the costs involved and I was happy with the quote they gave me. Reports came back from the inspections very promptly, and they were comprehensive- filled with photos and documentation, regardless of whether there was a defect or everything was okay. Very happy with the service.

Weightman - Bentleigh East

“We have used Buy-Wise Inspections Services twice now. The first time was 3 years ago and we recently used them again. They were prompt, punctual and professional. The things they checked was comprehensive and where there were issues, they gave us advice on how to repair (or to leave and monitor) and how much it would cost to repair. It gives you peace of mind and no unpleasant ‘surprises’. Well worth the money.”

Tri - Doncaster

Customer service was fantastic they had a quick turn around time to get the inspection completed and the reports are very thorough it provided everything I needed to know and more. I highly recommend using them for your building and pest inspections.

Daniel - Springvale South

I was first attracted to this ad from the cute dog on the business card, then was excited to find out the dogs get to help out in the inspection too! The lady on reception had fantastic customer service skills and was very knowledgeable and helpful. I had a very short settlement and Buy-Wise Inspections Services were able to promptly accommodate my needs. I was impressed with the detailed report and photos and it was well explained.

Trosky - Bayswater

Excellent, professional, and thorough. The admin staff were very pleasant to deal with and incredibly helpful. The report was written very professionally with technical terms explained, and was accessible by the end of the day.

Janet - Diamond Creek

This is my third time using Buy-Wise Inspections Services Building and Pest Inspections for properties I was interested in. Excellent customer service. Very easy to deal with and friendly people. Quick to organise inspection, mostly within 2 days, they will deal with real estate agent directly so you don’t have to do anything. I have attended all inspections too. They are happy to answer any questions you might have. Good report with photos as well. Very happy with their service.

Wallace - Mont Albert

We have used Buy-Wise Inspections Services twice now. The first time was 3 years ago and we recently used them again. They were prompt, punctual and professional. The things they checked were comprehensive and where there were issues, they gave us advice on how to repair (or to leave and monitor) and how much it would cost to repair. It gives you peace of mind and no unpleasant ‘surprises’. Well worth the money.

Thomas - Ringwood

Looking to buy our first home, I had no idea where to start with organising a building and pest inspection. The real estate agent gave me a bunch of business cards/pamphlets from various companies, including Buy-Wise Inspections Services. I did a bit more research, culled a few and started calling. Buy-Wise Inspections Services was by far the most professional and informative and could do both the building and pest inspections for a great price – equal to or less than everybody else.
The inspections were carried out within 2 days. They were done at 2:30pm and I was amazed that the reports were ready for viewing by 5:30pm the same day. The reports themselves were very comprehensive, complete with photos of everything they inspected. Couldn’t have been more happy with the service.

Smith - Mt Evelyn

Very easy to deal with. Bit more expensive than others but resulted in a very detailed and thorough report. The reports also gave suggestions for what could be done in future and what to watch out for, which is very helpful to us, seeing as we’re not huge handy-people. I loved the idea of the termite sniffing dogs too.

Chelsea - Chelsea

Just finish my building and pest inspection. Their reception are very nice and helpful. Two guys and lovely dog were attend inspection. I receive report on next day morning. I am very satisfied with their service and hope deal with them again.

Kaushal - Murrumbeena

Buy-Wise Inspections Services provided a comprehensive service with building and pest inspection. The thoroughness of the reports including very helpful photos provided the assurances I needed to have confidence in purchasing a property only my husband had viewed. The service provided over the phone was also thorough, with staff answering my fussy questions. I am still waiting to hear from the pest inspector, having left a message for him yesterday but no doubt will hear from him soon. I was very pleased to see less than a 24 hr turnaround on the reports too. Highly recommend this company.

Sullivan - Deakin

I called at least 15 different Pest and Building Inspection Vendors and Buy-Wise Inspections Services came out on top. During my initial phone call the representative was very knowledgeable and was able to thoroughly explain what is included in the service. I also found that for the price Buy-Wise Inspections Services charged for the Pest and Building inspection was very competitive when stacked up against other competitors I had called. Upon completion of the inspection, the report that is produced is very thorough and in the report the team goes well above and beyond what you would expect. The best part of the report is that it is easy to interpret. I would highly recommend using Buy-Wise Inspections Services as they provide a great service at a fair price and the staff are really attentive and keep you in the loop throughout the whole process. I’ll most definitely refer my friends, family and anyone else looking to have a pest and building inspection completed. Furthermore, I would also use them again when I get a pest and building inspection in the future.

Skarvellis - Mordialloc

We have Buy-Wise Inspections Services done two pre-purchase building inspection reports for us in past two years. They are quite professional, timely and friendly. Quite happy with them. Reports looked handy and instructive. During inspection, the guys explained things, terms and early warnings to us. Will definitely recommend them!

Tang - Mooroolbark

Hi all, I provide the following testimonial. My son and his wife recently signed contracts to purchase a property in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. After combing the internet and making enquiries with a number of “building inspection” service providers (with whom I was largely unimpressed), I rang Buy-wise. I was immediately confident that this was a company in whom I could place my trust. The customer service, administration, organisation of timings for the inspection (at very short notice), interaction with the Inspectors at the property, timeliness and quality of the reports and personal follow-up, were all of an exemplary standard. Belinda, Camille and Debbie, as well as the two chaps who conducted the inspection have my sincere thanks and appreciation. As happens, the property was found to have major structural defects, and a live termite infestation. This discovery enabled my son and his young family to void the contract – but more importantly, saved them many tens of thousands of dollars (money they do not have) in necessary repairs and treatments. They are still in the market for a home and rest assured will be again engaging the services of the splendid folk at Buy-wise. Thank you.

Russ - Point Cook

Hello, I’m writing to give you my compliments. Almost 2 years ago I had your company inspect a house I was buying. I got the big comprehensive report and all was good and I bought the house. As luck would have it I’ve been offered a job overseas so I have to sell the house. During this process, two prospective buyers have had the house inspected (one pre-offer and one post offer). I have to say, having seen the job these other two inspectors did, I am so grateful I went with you guys. Neither of them went into the roof. They both only poked their heads under the house. They didn’t take photos. Nothing. I had no idea what a great job you guys did because I had nothing to compare it to. Now I do. Thank you for your comprehensive inspection of my house. I really appreciate the detail and effort involved.

Jay - Mooroolbark

I recently required an urgent inspection on a house I purchased in Pakenham. Buy Wise were not only very competitive, but reacted immediately and completed the job within 24 hours. The comprehensive report was received within hours. The main item detected was a leak in a very difficult area to access which may have proved disastrous. I proceeded with the house purchase as the rest of the report was good. I highly recommend Buy-Wise Inspections Services, I found them professional, caring and did what they say they would.

Rod - Pakenham

“Both Peter and Rohan were excellent; very professional, and gave us a fantastic explanation and run-through of the issues they had found with the property. They were able to give us enough information and advice on the day of inspection to enable us to make the decision regarding whether to proceed. The reports were ready in less than 24 hours, full of photos and detailed, easy-to-understand information. I would have no hesitation in contacting Buy Wise again for any building or pest inspections.”

Ross - Boronia

“My partner and I were very happy with the professional service provided by Buy Wise. We had both a building inspection and pest inspection done on a property we were about to purchase. We also paid a small amount extra to have one of their sniffer dogs present at the inspections to give their expert opinion as well! We were provided with full reports with photos outlining the outcome of the inspections. While there were minimal issues with the property, it was well worth getting the inspections done for peace of mind. I’d definitely recommend Buy Wise to anyone.”

Lisa - Ormond

“I just used Buy wise to inspect a property I purchased under clause Building and Pest. I am so grateful I did, because of how thorough they were, I was able to negotiate the price because of the issues I would not have otherwise known about before too late and after paying full price.Not only are they thorough, they took every phone call and answered every question and directed me to the right places for the right advice. The customer service is impeccable before AND after the fact. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND! and “Belle” is INCREDIBLE and so supportive in what was such a stressful time. I cannot rave highly enough!”

Tihana - Frankston

“Thank you BuyWise for our help with our Building & Pest Inspections. Buying an investment property can be a stressful experience, however, you really helped making this part of the process super simple and stress free.”

Cameron – Patterson Lakes

“Over the past month we have used Buywise twice. On both occasions we found the reports provided to be thorough. Money well spent as the first inspection saved us from buying a home that would have needed up to $70, 000 worth of repairs in order to replace decaying flooring! Inspector phoned personally that evening to inform us of the problem. Second time round we were satisfied with the details of the report and ended up buying the property.

Linda – Beaconsfield

“From the moment Belinda picked up the phone, we felt looked after. Peter and Rohan were very professional and thoroughly inspected the home. Peter provided us with sound advice and next steps to consider. The report was provided to us within 24 hours and had all the details we needed to make a decision on purchasing the home. Belinda followed this up with a phone call to make sure we understood everything on the report and gave us extra tips for consideration. All in all, we are extremely satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for a building inspector.”

“We engaged the services of Buy Wise to do the building and pest inspection for our first home purchase. We were extremely happy with their very professional and friendly service. From initial enquiry, to booking, to the inspection and to getting the inspection report, we were really impressed with their impeccable service. We would like to commend Belinda who is very cheerful, lovely and pleasant to talk with. She made the process very easy for us who are first home buyers. She was very helpful, always ready to answer our questions and even gave us some tips which were very handy for us. Keep up the good work Belinda! We would also like to commend Rohan who did the inspection. He is very knowledgeable and explained to us in detail about their findings. The report was sent to us promptly within 24 hours. It was very detailed and helpful. Thanks Peter for the very helpful report. Overall, we are very happy with the service of Buy Wise. Highly recommended. Thank you again Belinda and the team for the awesome service!”

“This is the third inspection we’ve had done by Buy Wise Inspections and every time we have been very impressed with the service from the moment you call them to getting a comprehensive report with pictures where it is clear the inspection has been very thorough. The agent mentioned that Buy Wise is also great to deal with from their side. Highly recommend them.”

“I couldn’t be happier with the service from the team at Buywise! I spent hours trawling the internet to find a licensed building inspector and ended up with a total dud who spent about half hour there with no tools and refused to even look under the house… unfortunately, the building inspection industry is unregulated and there are a lot of unlicensed charlatans out there ready to rip you for what is easily the biggest purchase you will ever make in your lifetime… After my horrible experience, my sister suggested I give Belle a call at Buywise and she took care of everything from there. Peter and Rohan came out with their sniffer beagle Penny and did the most thorough job – they were there for almost three hours combing through the entire place, explaining things along the way. They were absolutely fantastic! And because of their comprehensive report and approximate price guide to bring the property up to scratch, I managed to purchase my home for $50K less than the asking price! Happily recommend this business to anyone. Thanks again!”

What can I say. Quite frankly. I was amazed at the turn around time and the quality of the reports. Your company delivered the goods. Thanks a lot. I found you guys with Google so keep it showing in the search results like you have.

Fantastic, professional service. Able to get an inspection with very short notice just before Christmas! Detailed report with pictures available the same day. Would highly recommend!
