I would have said that it was Tradesmen who were the culprits as they would have known what was there and when to get it, but thanks to RA, I was told by a 1 post wonder that this does not happen because Tradies do not steal their own stuff and claim it back on the insurance claim, never happens, nope no way.

Stealing from your employer is probably in the top three quickest ways to lose your job category.

Doesn’t come out of the contractors pockets, you have a lot of boys coming in and out of sites not to mention nearby residents. If a few people know the routine of the site, coming to an end with appliances getting put in usually not many people onsite (usually right before handover cause they ALWAYS get flogged given enough time).

You do not seem to know how insurance works…

Unless of course you have a source?

Chisolm? Then it’s pronounced “burgyalary”.
