As a builder in a regional city you need to keep informed and aware of so many aspects that are forever changing in our industry. We currently use Master Builders insurance, mobile and fixed line phones and have purchased two vehicles using their industry discount. The savings are substantial and the staff are always there to assist. They have provided a full service with our code compliance application and collective workplace agreement without fee or cost, I do not know what something like this would cost if a consultant had been involved.
