CUSTOMER REVIEWS

These guys were top notch and I would recommend them to anyone in the surrounding area. I called 6 or so places to see if they could come same day for spider removal, and everyone said they were booked solid until next week. I had guests staying with me that day, so i wanted to avoid having dozens of spiders roaming around my apartment. Sam told me he'd try to squeeze me in he just had to double check. He called me back 5 minutes later and said I could expect someone in just an hour or so. They were professional, reliable and very honest.

A company offering free advice, without pushing for business, is very refreshing. After examining photos of a pest problem I was experiencing, Sam from Sydneys Best Pest Control, phoned me to discuss the matter. His advice was to take my photos to my local hardware store to obtain the correct product to treat the problem myself. There was no pressure to use the services of his company.I was very impressed with Sam’s knowledge and professionalism. After this experience, I would certainly use the company for my annual pest control treatment.

I'm so glad to have found SBPC after struggling to find a decent pest control company who is NOT all about money or take advantage of their customers. This is the best company by far and I'd dare say it's up there in the industry with other 25-30+ odd years businesses that I have encountered. You got my business and keep doing what you do best!

I was happy with the service provided by Sydney's Best Pest Control. Easy to make a booking and the technician was on time, friendly, informative and did his job efficiently. I did find that they called and emailed more times than I would have liked, and although they offer warranty, I felt they were quite reluctant and offended when I asked for the technician to come back after I was concerned with still seeing cockroaches running around 6-8 weeks later. I still highly recommend the company, as their product is great and they were professional. I would book them again if we move.
