Specialists in Property Inspections, Christchurch


Good evening Chris,


Well here goes:


We employed BIC on three occasions in our search for a home suitable for an aged parent.  I am pleased to say that the service offered was timely, accurate, with Dave keeping us in the loop at all times during his assessments - and would not hesitate to recommend BIC to any prospective home buyer or indeed anyone who requires an assessment on a residential premises.  Indeed we have been recommending BIC to friends and colleagues already, as being an Organisation best able to supply inspection reports promptly with the minima of technical jargon.  Their supplying of pictures for each aspect of the written report is to be commended as well.


Chris’s report was the base for the purchase of the property and has also been used as part of the application for the transfer of the Master Built Guarantee.

WOW.................what an amazing company.


We needed a pre purchase building inspection done to become unconditional on our home and Chris at the B.I.C was amazing. It was rather urgent on our behalf and the B.I.C was really accommodating. I rang Chris on the Monday and he was inspecting the property on the Wednesday. Fantastic service.


The family home is probably one of the biggest investments you will ever make so we wanted a very thorough, professional, and comprehensive inspection....................and we got it.

With the thermal imaging option Chris was able to pick up things that the naked eye can't which gave my wife and I the peace of mind we all want when making that big purchase.


I wouldn't hesitate to use the B.I.C again and I have already recommended them to my friends.


Well done team.

We had found our dream home, it ticked all of our boxes and the offer had been accepted pending The Building Inspection Company making an assesment of the property. The results were outstanding, the report was very clear and easy to understand and we instantly withdrew our offer. Whilst the property looked superb the damage that could not be seen by the naked eye was far too extensive for our young family to be able to live with. Without the report from The Building Inspection Company we could have made a purchase we would long regret.

Thank you.

Hi Chris,

Thank you very much for sending that through. We are very impressed with your work. Your inspection was really thorough, we really appreciate the time you go to, to check the property over so thoroughly and you've picked some smaller details there we weren't expecting. The report you made was amazing, so easy to read and follow and we appreciate the extra time you took in taking photos of problem areas identified so there was no confusion about where in the house you were referring to. Thank you very much, we will definitely be referring you on to others.

Kind Regards,
