Matt did a great job and was very through. Buyers were very pleased with his inspection.
- M.W., Chelsea MI, April 2021
We have now used Big Moose four times in the past 10 years, twice in 2009 when we purchased our current home in Gaylord in 2009 and twice when we decided on a new home in 2019 in Midland. We were extremely pleased with Big Moose and all four reports. We found the company easy to work with, very thorough, and very attentive to our needs. We especially enjoyed working with Mat Bishop on our two recent inspections. He was professional, easy to understand, and explained everything at my level--not making me feel like a dummy at home construction issues. I believe his first inspection (as did his colleague's first inspection in 2009) saved us many, many years of headaches and disappointments with our first choices. I find the inspection report to be especially valuable in two ways. First, it helped us make an educated choice between two houses and alleviated much of the anxiety of this large investment. And second, the printed report now serves as a blueprint/road map for working with our contractor/handyman in making future repairs/updates. I would recommend Big Moose and Mat for your inspection needs!
