Quotes on Plentific can either be ‘Simple’ or ‘Advanced’, with advanced quotes containing itemised costs that make up a total. Simple quotes, on the other hand, are for basic one-lump-sum payments.
Before you get started, keep in mind that customers usually prefer itemised quotes which let them know exactly what they are paying for. If your offer is for £1,000 or higher, it will be mandatory to create an advanced quote like this.
Be sure to include:
- Individual charges - Select ‘Add quote item’ to add individual charges to your quote. Remember to specify whether each charge is a fixed price or a rate per hour, per day or per item
- Descriptions - Write a description of each individual charge. Again, this helps customers to understand what they are paying for
Whether or not a quote is accepted ultimately depends on the customer. Be sure to offer a fair price, justify each individual charge and upload photos so that you can impress the customer with your handiwork!
If you are a Verified Pro, you also have the option of including Workmanship Protection with your quote. Once the job is completed, this policy will cover up to £50,000 in repairs for two years.
The cost of adding Workmanship Protection to a quote will depend on the value of the quote itself. Exactly how much the additional cover will cost will be displayed before you send your quote to the customer.
