We have listened to comments and concerns from tradesmen and service-providers and have modified the quoting process to offer two great new quote options! If a tradesman wishes to receive a customer’s details, make their own visible to other potential customers, we have introduced a Featured Quote option. If he or she wants to keep a quote under wraps then the standard Private Quote option is perfect.
Below are some frequently asked questions about the new Private Quoting and Featured Quoting.
What is a ‘Private Quote?’
Up until now all quotes have been visible to the public – both to tradesmen and to customers irrespective of whether they are members of MyHammer. A Private Quote means it is only visible to the tradesman who makes it and to the customer whose job has been quoted on. The idea behind this is to avoid quoting wars whereby tradesmen persistently undercut each other in a bid to win the job on price which is unfair to the professionals and makes for a poorer service.
