Trying to find builders? Read this first.

So you want to build a new home? There’s a huge assortment of building companies, independent builders, architects, and designers available! How do you choose what? Who’s right for you? And how do you find the right builders – the one who you can really rely on to do a good job, but won’t cost too much?

My Build Sorted is an independent service that helps clients throughout Canterbury with the entire process. From finding a section, to developing a unique plan, completing specifications, and tendering the project out to a registered list of reputable and quality builders.

“Most people engage with a known brand home building company and once that company provides you with a plan, they own the copyright, meaning you can only get their price and never know if it is truly market competitive,” explains Scott Harris, director of My Build Sorted.

There is a better service available – better design, better quality build and more competitive.”


My Build Sorted is an independent service that helps people throughout Canterbury with the entire building process.

Harris explains that comparing prices can often be difficult. You need to understand what each builder has allowed for or excluded. “My Build Sorted’s unique system allows for full transparency in pricing and easy comparison for inclusions and exclusions within each builder’s price.”

Once the tenders are reviewed, My Build Sorted presents all the prices to the client. Clients then choose their preferred builder and My Build Sorted’s service manages the introductions, the contract and oversees the whole project.

“We act as the client’s advocate through the full build process, to ensure that they receive top quality service, design, build and a fair and competitive market price,” says Harris.

My Build Sorted has a database of over 70 builders throughout Canterbury. Every builder going through a full registration and vetting process. Every builder carries an independent 10-year guarantee: either Master Build, Certified Build or with a private insurer.

My Build Sorted’s build liaison service is free to clients; the consultancy service is paid by the successfully contracted builder, so if there is no successful build contract, no payment is required.

Happy Couple with Contract Builder

My Build Sorted not only find builders, but also oversee them during construction to make sure everything happens to plan.

My Build Sorted also has its own highly experienced architectural design team. There is a charge, however this is substantially subsidised.

We are unique in the way that we get multiple prices on the same plan and same specification and that you deal with the same Build Sorter from the first meeting till the handover of your keys and beyond,” says Harris.

With a database of over 70 fully vetted and certified builders; My Build Sorted have plenty of options to find the perfect fit for your project.
