We have started our owner build in Gisborne South in Victoria and are having a very difficult time finding anyone to do our raft slab. We are either getting people coming back saying they are too busy, or others that are inflating their quotes.
We had one very experienced guy who unfortunately isn't well at the moment or else we'd use him in a heartbeat. He let us know what we should be paying, but those that are quoting are at least 25% higher than him. He said that there's so much work on at the moment that people will put outrageous quotes out there to see if anyone bites.
Does anyone have a slab person they could recommend that doesn't try to rip you off?
