Frequently asked questions

Most RACV Trades quotes are free, and provided with no obligation to proceed. Your tradie may need to do a site inspection to give you the most accurate quote.

You may have to pay for a site inspection if further investigation is required to determine the problem. Your tradie will confirm any required payment upfront, prior to arranging a time with you.

If your quote is above $1,000, we generally require a deposit before work begins. This is usually 20% of the total cost.

Every tradie is vetted by experienced industry specialists to ensure they are accredited, licensed and insured to perform the works required. 

To meet our high quality standards, our vetting and quality assurance process includes:

  • interviews with tradies
