I can guarantee that no survey firm in QLD could replace 1 peg on a block in an established suburb for $400 if they did an ethical job and...

Not how it works in Qld. might be $600-$850 in other states, but in Qld you wont find a licenced surveyor thats willing to do it for less...

In my opinion, option 3 is the best option as it forces everyone to merge onto the the highway with a 1:1 ratio, which improves the flow of...

Usually when entering a **crawling congested** highway onramp, people think they have 2 options: 1) The early merge (they think they're...

Yes, I was a surveyor in Brisbane. Not any more. Too many dodgy operators (including well known medium to large firms) making it difficult...

Clients see surveyors 'on site' for a fraction of the time spent on the job. I'd estimate: * 2 hours plan search, pre-calcs and prep *...

Not good advice. Surveyors need to prepare and lodge an identification plan and reinstatement report for any boundary work, even if they...

Reference marks in the kerb and channel do not mark the alignment.

Not true. It takes 4 years of uni plus years of experience plus several years of reports and assessment by the board to become a cadastral...

You might get lucky and find a dodgy surveyor that will do it for less than $2000, but they're not going to do a thorough or professional...

I tried this with my real name - never had a account in past. Locked down security settings, didn't want to add any friends. Account was...

Open up the wall control unit and see what terminals there are. If there aren't any, you can solder the wires to either side of the...

Nope, both have it as 2wd. Quote based on vehicle rego lookup. Similar vehicles are advertised from the $11-16k range (currently) -...

The instructions tell you where it is. Section 18 page 19

did you read the manual you linked? The answer is there. Hint - look at table of contents. Wired wall switch maybe?

You can set a geo fence that opens the door when you arrive home. Works great.

Don't forget stamp duty each time you buy a new 2nd hand car though. But I guess you could try and compensate for that by selling near the...

If I had the choice of a job that: - paid $200k that I didn't enjoy; or - paid $70k that I enjoyed I'd take the $70k job any day. Money...

Still driving a 1990 Hilux 4x4 that my parents purchased new for 26k. Probably worth 10-15k at the moment, and comprehensive insurance is...
