Here’s a sneaky picture of our MD – Chad Loxsom – on the cover of Handyman Magazine.

In the September issue of Handyman Magazine, Chad sheds some light on how to avoid being ripped off by choosing a trustworthy tradie.


  • Get three verbal quotes over the phone and a written quote when the tradie turns up to do the job
  • Get all costs for both labour and parts – this ensures costs can’t change without negotiation
  • Define what’s most important about the job at hand – are you looking for the best skills, shortest time-frame or the lowest quote?
  • Get referrals or recommendations from friends, colleagues or family
  • Check out the tradie with your local Office of Fair Trading or check their licence/ABN
  • Find out how they charge – is it by the job, the hour, or part there of?
