If you are interested in appointing Select Body Corporate Managers, please contact us to discuss your requirements and we can provide you with a quote, our contract for your building, and relevant motion wordings for inclusion on the agenda of the general meeting.

If we appoint Select BCM, can we use our favourite tradespeople or do we have to use yours?
We hear this question a lot. Select Body Corporate Managers doesn’t have its own tradespeople; however, we can certainly give you details of various contractors who we know will do good work for you.

If you have tradespeople you prefer, we have no issue using as often as might be needed. We also offer management packages that include us organising quotes, work orders, and meeting the contractor.

Does the committee need to meet those tradespeople on site?
It is not necessary for someone to meet a tradesperson on site; however, we do encourage committee members to do so to ensure the work is done correctly and satisfactorily.

We understand not everyone has time in their schedule to do this, in which case we offer management packages that include onsite visits, where we are able to meet tradespeople to quote, repair, and inspect completed works so that committee members don’t have to.

Why Select Body Corporate Managers?
Select Body Corporate Managers prides itself on exceptional customer service and attention to detail. Our role is to work with the committee to ensure maintenance and repairs are provided in a timely and professional manner to provide a stress-free property management experience that enhances the value of your investment.
