Tradies will get this,
Others will think BS.

I'm over spending time quoting to never hear back from people looking for the cheapest price. Sure tbere are alot of tradies that din't return calls, followup,
I don't call it a quote now, it is an estimate, why? Cause something always changes(customer changes their mind, materail prices increase, unforseen damage, eg white ant, dry rot).
I now charge for a estimate, It costs to visit the site, ring suppliers, organise other tradies.
I love doing what I do, solving problems, seeing the look on peoples faces when I exceed they expectations, but I am not a charity.

Some may think I am up myself, but my time is worth reward.
I am asked to give a quote often on work that is less then $100, WTF?
That doesn't even cover my time to look at it.
Seariously, some people do not know what it costs to turn up on their door step.
Bloody facebook buy swap sell groups, people asking for tradies to quote on Shit, I hate it when people tag me, some times I am grateful, 90% it is someone wanting the cheapest bloody price, hey what happen to quality?
I also deal with the poor workmanship, there are some dodgy bastards out there.

Anyway Shaggers,
Enjoy your weekend
Cheers

I'm not a tradie, but have mates who are.
I'm constantly amazed at the number of people that call them in to fix work after the "cheapest offer" (usually non-qualified) only does a half ass job.  Usually works out (by the time they have fixed the errors) that it would have been cheaper to go with the real  tradie in the first place.

Cheers mate,
How I see it too is,
The reno shows have not done us any favors.
They only show the pretty bits, not the hard yards that go into giving final result.
It just happens, just like that.
I fix alot of stuff ups from owners who privately rent their property, they can legally do this , cause they believe they can be cheaper than having an agent  mananger it.

The ****ing renters next door are having another ****ing party... Our entire house has been vibrating since 4pm, weed smoke blowing into our windows, and the assholes have a bloody mini golf in the back yard and a DJ....

Bloody over it, nearly every single ****ing weekend since they moved in, and the agent won't evict them

Thus my dream of 100+ acres with razor wire around the borders.
Thus thus why I would never buy a rental.

Call the cops and keep calling them.

Just burn their house down this morning when they're asleep.

10 litres of premium, leave a nice solid trail of fuel to the neighbours house on the other side.

Light it and whooooper, up she goes and at least you know they'll talk to the neighbour before you.

Be careful too, its hard to deny it was you,  when you got too close  and look like a gollywog after striking that pesky match.

Have you used that magic word "drugs" when talking to the agent?

& if it's every weekend - does your Council have any rules about Party Houses?

Dunno if there’s any truth in it but an agent told me that if you state “I am afraid for my safety” in regard to rowdy renters, that is sufficient cause for them to evict. Might depend on how gutsy the agent is.

When we moved in about 10yrs ago the neighbours on one side let us know about a nearby house that sounds fairly similar, he encouraged us to start calling early when it got roudy, the theory was the more people that called and the more often they did meant the quicker/more likely they were to do something about it. Pretty much a case of the squeaky wheel getting the oil. I'd chat to your neighbours as well and get them to join in on the phonathon.

Cops probably Shitting themselves... they arent sudanese scum are they Drewy?

Councils are only there to fine you for parking on your nature strip.

If the agent and the cops wont do anything, take a video, post it on stalkerbook and dunno if you can post it or link it to the realestate agents facebook page.. find all the "review" sites around to, attach it there...

Email the agents too - so you have it in writing.

Woke up to this this morning... This is our garage roof, and it got the top roof of the house before the garage one... There's damage to about 8 sheets of colorbond, and at 2:30, there were 2 divvy vans rounding a few of their mates up, as another neighbour called the cops, as did the young blokes who were holding the party....

No apology, but the guy who's got his name on the list told me to get a quote to have the iron replaced as my missus tore him a new one

Keep notes and make videos of it all, note the dates and times. Continually contact the real estate office and complain. Get the owners details and contact them and tell them what goes on there. If they care for their house they wouldn't be happy. Complain to the owner about the agent if they are doing nothing. It all might help, but then your neighbours just might not really give a s**t.

Don’t know what state or area you are in but this type of thing is the lowest priority. It’s not the fault of the cops, they are going from sh*t job to sh*t job. Domestic to domestic. They would love to help you but they just don’t have enough cars. People are quick to blame cops but the government won’t employ the amount needed.
