We have been reading your feedback and it has become apparent that the Public Quoting system is an issue for most tradesmen. You’ll be glad to hear that from the 5th November, all standard quotes will be private (i.e. not visible to anyone other than the relevant customer).
The idea behind Private Quoting is that your carefully considered and realistic quotes will no longer be undercut by tradesmen who continually drop their price in order to win the job. In addition to this you will be able to choose a Featured Quote, whereby for a small fee your quote will be published. When you make a Featured Quote you receive the customer’s contact details (if they have previously consented) as well as your quote being visible to all other potential customers when they browse our quote pages. Customers can view your quotes, your profile, ratings and qualifications as well as directly request a quote from you when they see how great you are. Either way, the choice is yours.
Advantages of the Featured Quote:
- * Competitive edge – Your profile (including ratings, qualifications, etc.) will be featured on our Quote Search pages
- * Increased public profile – Quotes will be visible to other potential customers
- * Customers can request quotes directly from you
- * Receive the customer’s direct contact details (if they consent)
- * No more quoting wars
The applicable fee for Featured Quotes is dynamically calculated based on the value of the job and factors such as your ratings and general activity on the site. It is perhaps important to point out that it is not necessarily the lowest quote that wins the job. The customer will look at your profile, qualifications and ratings and make an informed decision.
