Although there are slight differences in detail between the 2 states, both sets of rules and the insurance schemes are a safeguard for you, the customer, ensuring that you are covered in situations where the contractor fails to complete the work or the work is defective.

In addition as we have to arrange the cover on your behalf and only appropriately licensed contractors are able to do this, it is a confirmation by the states licensing authority that we are qualified, licensed and insured for the contracted scope of works.

Coast to Coast carries out all work to fully comply with the legislation in force in both states.
