Do you know that quotes are more exact than estimates?
It is not possible for some businesses to give defined prices for goods and services. This may be because of research, skills, time and materials required for each product vary depending on the needs of unlike customers.
This state of affairs are more common in some business than others - When it is not possible to work with a standard price list, you rather have to ask for a quotation or an estimation.
One need to understand that a quotation is an standard price offer that normally won't change in a later stage once accepted by the customer. This stands true even if one has to carry out much more work than it is expected. Thus it is very important to have a well explained quotations from the supplier before you make any purchases.
Quotation or estimation in general specify precisely what all it covers, and that variations beyond of this will be subject to additional charges.
An estimate is an cultivated guess at what a job may cost – but that is not binding. To take account of possible unanticipated developments, you should ask for several estimates based on various circumstances, that also includes the worst-case scenario. This will prevent you from being stormed by the costs in a later stage.
You should ask all your quotes and estimates in writing and ask for the inclusion of detailed breakdown. This will help to avoid any disputes about what work is included in your overall price.
You may also ask for the quotation validity so you know that particular estimate will no longer be valid after a certain date and time.
