"We secured the services of Craig Forster at PCM Concepts to do the buildings inspection for us. It has not been easy navigating through various hitches with the purchase since being back in UK but Craig was helpful from the start and although we had to change the inspection date several times he made sure he fitted in with the schedule. The inspection was thorough and very informative. It also gave us plenty of information on how to remedy various maintenance issues that came to light. We would have no hesitation in recommending Craig to friends or family. We would use his services again ourselves."

Andrew Purcell hired PCM Concepts to complete a service
"Andrew Purcell: We employed Craig Forster of PCM Concepts to undertake two Building Inspections for us in Mandurah. The first a large 4 bed, 4 bath home in Dudley Park, Mandurah and the second a large 4 bed 2 bath home in Halls Head, Mandurah. In both cases we were more than pleased with Craigâ€™s services. He writes a detailed and helpful report that is, in our opinion, as good or better than we have experienced in Australia, and we have employed Inspectors on 8 seperate occasions in the last 15 years. Craig writes an honest, in depth report, with photos, and where he finds a problem he suggests methodology to fix the item in question. PCM Concepts are good value for money, helpful and reliable and on both occasions Craig arrived at the properties on time as agreed. He delivered to us the full report within the same day or at latest in 24 hours. Our opinion is that PCM Concepts go above and beyond the average in this field and we would highly recommend them to any prospective buyer. Kind regards Andrew & Angela Purcell South Perth"

Lachy Mitchell hired PCM Concepts to complete a service
"Hi there, i was hoping to leave some positive feedback for PCMConcepts after using their services for a building inspection recently. We recently used PCMConcepts (Craig) to undertake a comprehensive inspection and report for a house that we were purchasing. As first home buyers, we were looking for someone that had the qualifications and experience, came well recommended, would give us a report that we could use, gave us peace of mind and was reasonably priced. PCMConcepts ticked all of the boxes. We did a bit of shopping around and found that most of the inspectors in Perth (particularly the cheaper ones) do not have any qualifications at all. In WA, it is not a legal requirement to be a registered builder or an engineer to do structural inspections, which i found rather odd. Craig is a structural engineer and a registered builder with over 30 yearsï¿½ experience. He turned up when he said he was going to, was friendly, professional and had the very detailed report back to us on the same day! His report was really easy to read, had lots of photos and not only explained what he found, but gave a detailed explanation on how to get it fixed, including materials. He found some items that required the current owner to fix prior to settlement. Craig even discussed the items with the agent as she was a bit reluctant to get them fixed. However, after Craig spoke to her, all items were fixed at no cost to us. That exercise alone probably saved us more than the cost of the PCMConcepts inspection and report. We will now be moving into our new home safe in the knowledge that it has been professionally inspected. We would highly recommend PCMConcepts and Craig to anyone considering engaging a building inspector. · Web · 29th Nov 2017 17:16"

"My husband Alun and I wanted to highly recommend Craig and his professional, thorough and excellent services as a Building Inspector. We are new to the housing market and are purchasing our first home. We tried this once a few years ago but found the process difficult, confusing and ultimately heart breaking. Craig guided us through and explained everything he was doing to the best of his ability and when the house sale fell through, he offered ongoing support and encouragement. We have again hired Craig for our second attempt at this and have found him to be highly professional, reliable and trustworthy. His report on our new home is comprehensive and thorough and he has taken great efforts to go through our new home with a fine-toothed comb which is something I know my husband and I highly regard. If you're after someone you can trust who has YOUR best interests at heart and provides exceptional service, then do not hesitate to hire Craig and his company. With many thanks, Alun & Janet"

"Craig was recomended due to his qualification and detailed reporting, I did have concerns with some items at the property however with Craig undertaking a thorough inspection and providing a detailed report I now have full confidence in our purchase
Criag has not only provided details of concerns but also provided the methodology in detail how to repair, what rules apply under legislation to be compliant, this becomes a valuable document to accertain who the responsibility person is to undertake non compliant items weither it be the seller or purchaser.
I now have no concerns and have no hesitation to feel confident with my purchase.
Highly recommend Craig to undertake any pre inspection, value for money and proffesional.
I have had bad dealings with previous purchases in the past so make sure you go on recomendations when finding a reliable, qualified person to undertake your inspection, word of mouth is the best form of advertising as it is your money that you are spending based on the final report that has been provided."

Christine Hillan hired PCM Concepts to complete a service
"PCM Concepts were originally sent to our home to do a building inspection for the purchasers of our property. It is always a tense time when a contract for sale is so close but also still so far away! We were impressed however by Craig's professionalism in how he not only dealt with our purchasers report but also by informing us immediately of 2 minor issues that although wouldn't affect the sale of our property were issues that he felt we should be aware of. We had these issues fixed so we could leave our family home feeling happy that the new owners would have a trouble free home for many years. We then asked Craig (PCM Concepts) to complete a building report for the property we were purchasing. Now I know why getting a report done is so important. He found that the electric wiring in the down-lighting was non Aus Standard Compliant which was a major issue. This could potentially have been both very expensive and also very dangerous. He also found that the pool fencing was non-compliant. This was only a minor issue and easily fixed but still an expense that we didn't need. We have liked the way that Craig has taken many photographs of issues both good and bad and explained how to fix any problems that he has come across. We would recommend him 100% to anyone wanting a thorough building report prior to purchasing a property. Many thanks...."

"Craig is very professional and helpful. He over stretch his time to complete the prehandover inspection for me because I have a list of things that I need him to check due to poor workmanship of the builder. He completed everything in details and provided me with the report within 24 hours. His price is very reasonable too. He took the time to listen, reply my queries in email prior and after the job completion. He does his job with passion and customer focus. I strongly recommend him and also for your peace of mind and if financially is not too tight, if u started not having a good run or simply lost your trust with your builder, get the building inspector to check your new house at every stages. This is worth it compare to stressing yourself out! I am talking building a new house.
Hope this helps."
