Insurance Rebuild Estimates for Buildings

This service is offered for customers needing to calculate the "Sum Insured" figure for their residential, commercial, industrial and / or unit title holdings. 

Aardvark Quantity Surveying can provide a written rebuild estimate advising you on how much you should insure your property in the event that it may damaged by earthquake, fire, flooding or some other insurable peril.

Rebuild Estimates (some times called Rebuild Valuations)  are about how much it would cost to "rebuild a building" NOT its "sale value". - Therefore a qualified Quantity Surveyor is the right person from whom to obtain "building cost advice".  Quantity Surveyors are the experts in assessing construction costs!

Our most basic service / fee option is $350.00 +GST for a residential dwelling. - All fees can be set and agreed up front and we will discuss your options with you prior to commencing work on your behalf. 

Please download our attached Reinstatement Valuation Brochure (located at the bottom of this page) and give us a call to find out what our recommended service and fee option for your home would be. 

For a free service fee quote please call Lance Janes on 0800 227 382 or email lance@aardvarkqs.co.nz
