Helpful Hints

Below are some helpful hints to consider:

Choosing A Tradesman

  • Have a clear plan about what you want and set a deadline.
  • Contact recommended tradespersons and ask for a quote (this will involve a site inspection and may incur a cost).
  • Ask for an obligation free quote.
  • Agree on estimated price, start date and foreseeable finishing date.
  • Sign a document together outlining this.
  • If there are changes or unforeseen costs, agree on this and sign a modified contract.
  • Check all goods on delivery for correct colour, size and quantity.

If you have concerns or complaints, contact the Consumer, Trader and Tenancy Tribunal on 1300 135 399.
