“Matt is an insured uber driver. He has the taxi licence..
He is respectable and doesnt do anything wrong. You can pay cash or card which is great. Plus the best thing is its a clean and tidy car and he will get a car seat when required. The back seats even turn in to a booster seat. So for the quality of care and respect you get its amazing” -Russell Island Resident
I do t understand...the blocks are say, 30 000. How can rates be so high? There's not very good infrastructure. Are they the same across the whole range of prices?
rates in queensland are nearly always between $1200 and $1600 annual. Decided on the govt valuation of the land only (not what the value of dwellings etc is) and having regard to about 6 other recent property sales in the immediate area .
