Very pleased with the response from the website. We had 5 quotes via email and 3 of the companies also contacted us separately to offer more information. Two of them provide the exact service we need so we will definitely use one of them for our survey.

Really easy to use. Especially helpful when you are relocating to an area you don’t know. Gave me several options with minimal effort on my part.

Using the service to find a building surveyor was easy. Based on the findings and the responses we had we chose Mr Chris White of Bentley who has proved to be professional and extremely efficient in doing the survey and producing a timely and thorough report.

Local building surveyors provided a short list of certified surveyors and quotations from them. Enough were provided to allow some choice, but not so many that you do not know where to start.

This is a very convenient way of getting a number of quotes. All the necessary information is presented immediately, so there's no need to repeat it to umpteen surveyors.

I contacted a company to arrange for a survey on a bungalow. Unfortunately the vendor withdrew from the sale so the appointment was cancelled. I will certainly use the same surveyors when we find another bungalow.

Simple to use. The surveyors contacted me and once instructed the survey was completed quickly and the report e-mailed to me. The report was concise and included photos of any areas of concern to back up the findings in the written report. The surveyor himself was open to questions about the report and answered them openly. The report is being used by the conveyancor to pursue the areas raised which is exactly why the report was commissioned. I thought the cost of the report to be very reasonable for the information contained within it's 37 pages. I would have no hesitation in using the service or the surveyor again.

Really good full structural building survey - comprehensive and lots of photos. Had to keep chasing the report because the surveyor was very busy with other surveys but the end result was worth the wait. Be mindful of this if you need a speedy result to stress it from the outset. Would definitely recommend.

I received a phone call from the company and they were able to advise me on the best type of survey for my needs. They were very helpful and professional, even though it transpired I didn't actually need their services after all.

Cost effective service. Survey done on time, their team made all the arrangements with the vendors. Got a phone call on the same dsy of the survey with a summary of the report then the full report 5 days later. I recommended them to my mortgage broker.

I have used local building surveyors for both asbestos and building surveyors. Both times I have had what I believe to be a very good service. As a result I have recommended the website twice to other friends. I hope the website is also useful from the surveyors perspective.
