    I don't wish to hijack this thread, but the estimate to repile the property I want to buy just came back at $45k!
    Despite being a specialist with a hydraulic lifting system, the contractor advised it was a 4-5 week manual job, hence the cost

    Hard to say without seeing the house but there's definitely a lot of manual component like removing all concrete porches/fireplace foundation, pulling old piles out, digging or drilling by hand holes for new piles as house is only being lifted 1000-1500mm up.
    Get another quote nevertheless

    I was going to say the $26k sounds reasonable. Did you proceed with the other quotes for comparision or did you quit?
    my rule is toalways get 3 quotes, not only do you get price comparisons but you also build on your own education.
