Unlike with retail shopping, trade services have to be calculated by the professional before you can know the total price. A quote is an estimate of that price, listing the services offered and costs. Quotes help you to get a good impression of how much the work will cost to have done.
Many trade professionals differ in price and services, therefore it pays to look around before you buy. By comparing quotes from several professionals, you can see which company you would like to hire.
Most quotes provide you with a “Breakdown”. This is a list of the services, materials and man-hours that will be needed to provide you with the work you would like to have done. By collecting a number of different quotes from local professionals, you can see which company provides you with the best services for your needs, or the best price. This can help you to select the company you would like to hire for the job.
Trade professionals cannot give up-front prices, as each service is calculated individually to the customers needs. Common calculations include:
- Which materials they will use
- The amount of materials necessary
- How many people will need to be employed to carry out the work
- How long it will take to complete
- Are there any health and safety risks?
- Are there any legal preparations that need to be made?
Therefore a quote gives you a unique calculation resulting from your particular requirements. Whether you are looking for Painting & Decorating, Wallpapering, Plastering, Tiling, Home Design, Carpentry, Air-Conditioning, Pest Control, Plumbing, Electricians, Glazing, Lawn-Mowing & Weeding, Garden Design, Landscaping, Paving, Fencing, Decking, Pool Cleaning, Pool Construction, Pool Repair, Pool Resurfacing or any other trade services, you will find that each trade needs to calculate the costs for service. They do this by sending you a quote. The quote allows you to see the costs before you proceed with the work, so that you can decide which company you will hire.
When looking for work to be done, each individual has different requirements. Here are some important factors when comparing quotes from professionals:
Price: By checking the “Breakdown” of a quote, you can see the list of services and costs. This will help you to see which companies are offering competitive prices. As companies can differ greatly in price, by comparing several professionals, you can save a lot of money. Please note: It is not always advisable to go for the cheapest option; if a more expensive professional can offer you better quality or durability, you should take this into account when making your decision on who to hire.
Quality: Perhaps rather than the price, you are more interested in a good quality finish. If this is the case, you should specify this when contacting your local professionals. If you are interested in particular materials, it is also good to include this when requesting a quote. This helps the professionals to give you what you are looking for. By comparing several companies for quality and professionalism, you can choose the company that best suits your needs.
Durability: Durability is another important factor to consider. While durable materials may cost you more initially, they may end up saving you money in the long term. Replacing materials can be costly and inconvenient. If you are interested in the durability of the work you want done, then mention this when requesting a quote. That way the professional can advise you on the best options.
Time: If time is the issue, perhaps you will have to narrow your choice of professionals depending on who can provide services for the date you want. By specifying the date you require the work done by, you will see which professionals are available to help you at that time.
Here are some important tips for requesting a quote from professionals using our website:
- Select the service that best categorizes what you are looking for
- Make sure to put the correct postcode in to get local companies in your area.
- Select the companies from the list of local professionals that you would most like a quote from (this can be the whole selection if you choose to compare prices and services).
- Fill in the quotation request form as accurately as possible.
Here are some general pointers when filling in the quotation request form:
- Give as much information as possible regarding the work you would like to have done. The more information you give, the more accurate the quote. Failing to give information can result in additional costs later on.
- Allow a practical amount of time when giving the date of when you would like the work done. Asking for a quote usually takes 24 to 48 hours, and then you have to establish arrangements.
- Make sure that your contact details are filled in correctly to ensure that you will be contacted as soon as possible.
