28 Jun Charging for Quotes
Elysium Designed along with many other professional residential custom design builders charge for quotes. This in our experience is becoming an expected fee amongst consumers who are seeking out a professional builder to undertake their project.
Click here to see why you should be wary of builders offering ‘Free’ quotes.
Alex Alexandrou, co-founder of the Association of Professional Builders believes that if your prospect doesn’t want to pay for your services, it simply means they either do not see value in what you are offering, or they are a price checker that has no intention of building with you.
If the builder is going to invest their time estimating the job, should the prospect be prepared to spend money getting their job professionally quoted in order for the builder to produce a fixed price contract? Alex believes that this process results in ‘buy in’ and ‘commitment’ from the client and ‘accountability’ from the builder to deliver outstanding communication and professionalism.
Our team at Elysium Designed always put the highest level of quality and attention into everything we do, including our construction proposals (quotes). There may be other builders that provide free quotes but this is usually because they throw a m² rate at it and don’t go to the effort of producing a Bill of Quantities or sourcing quotes from Suppliers and Sub Contractors.
This practice often leads to unnecessary variations, disappointment and disputes during construction, not to mention extension of the construction period, costing you, the client, time and money.
We like to provide a personalised, transparent, service with a quote that will give you confidence and certainty that your project will be completed to an exceptional standard, on time and on budget.
As you can appreciate, there is a significant amount of time, effort and expense that goes into preparation of a detailed quote that is specific to your project. In order to be able to provide this level of service, we require payment of a nominal fee, which includes detailed consultations with you to review and answer any questions you may have.
