Business services

How to pick a quality business service?

  • Conduct your own independent research
  • Search the business name on the internet and see the feedback against the business or call your states department of fair trading office to see if there are any complaints against the business
  • Double check the validity of the ABN and relevant licences. Go to ABN Lookup to verify an ABN
  • Contact several businesses and receive quotes from each. Remember businesses are competing for your business and you should pick the one that you feel comfortable with.
