Super Demolition P/L have all the licenses and insurances that are required to carry out both demolition and asbestos removal works on domestic, commercial and industrial properties. Copies of all certificates of currency and licenses are available upon request.
Demolition and asbestos removal are both dangerous and high risk works. The relevant licenses and insurances do not come cheap. So if you obtain a quote that seems far cheaper than a reputable company, this could be due to the fact that the contractor does not have the insurances and licenses that are required by law.
Whether you choose to use Super Demolition P/L or another contractor to carry out your works please ensure that they have the following and that you obtain copies prior to commencement.
Find out if you are really covered by asking for a SafeWork NSW Demolition Licence, Asbestosremoval licence, Public Liability Insurance and Workers Compensation.
Super Demolition P/L looks forward to working with you on your project.
