Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pay to send quote requests?

No, the quote request service is completely free to the user.

How can I get the best price for my project?

This service will send your quote request out to multiple professionals who serve your area. Follow up with as many as you can to ensure you get not only the best price but the most experienced professional as well as the one you feel the most comfortable with.

Do I have to use one of the professionals who send me a quote?

Absolutely not. This is a no-obligation service designed to give customers a greater range of options without costing them a lot of time and effort. If none of the professionals who respond to your quote request suit, you are more than welcome to either send another quote request form or search elsewhere.

Are the professionals licenced and insured?

When a professional signs up they are screened to ensure that each one has the required trade and/or business licence/registration to operate in their state. Identity verification and background checks on the business owner are also undertaken to help ensure our users' safety and give them peace of mind. Business owners and professional s are also strongly encouraged to carry appropriate levels of insurance.

Although screening and verification is done prior to a professional joining, it is still important that homeowners also carry out at least minimal checks with the local licencing board as well as ask the professional about their qualifications, experience, references and level of insurance.

Does my quote request go to the companies in the directory?

As an added bonus for our users, the First 2 Offer website offers a directory which features the contact details of companies, products and services in each project category.

When you fill out a quote request form it is sent to pre-screened professionals who have signed up to receive quote requests. These may or may not be the companies listed in the directory. The directory listings are a good way of getting additional quotes (should you choose to) as well as helping homeowners who may not want to use any of the professionals who provide a cost estimate through the First 2 Offer system.

We aim to match homeowners and local professionals as closely as possible but ultimately the choice is yours. If you don't find what you need using the quote request service the directory is a great backup resource.
