On Oneflare, it's free to submit a job request and receive quotes. We will connect you with up to three interested businesses who'll respond with a quote - you can then initiate a conversation and verify the quality of the business by looking at their profile to make a decision.
Only those who respond to your request with a quote will have the opportunity to contact you directly. We do not share your contact details with other businesses, so you can invest time choosing the right expert.
The quotes you receive can vary depending on the category of work and the type of business that responds. Each response will provide one or more of the following:
- Cost estimate: Businesses can provide a flat cost estimate based on the details of the job or include an estimate based on their hourly rate and the amount of time they predict your job will require. Business may not always provide a cost estimate; if this is the case, you can give the business a call to have a chat about your job.
- Site inspection request: Businesses that require a site visit can respond to your job by asking to arrange a time to see your site before providing an accurate cost estimate.
- More information needed: When more detailed information about the job is required to give an accurate price, a business may ask specific questions before providing a price. We recommend getting in touch with the business to discuss your request in detail.
- Extra details: Businesses may respond with extra details about their business, quote or service.
If you require any clarification about a quote you receive, don’t hesitate to call or message the business directly. We also encourage businesses to get in touch after you have had a chance to review the details of the job.
Finding the right business requires more than a competitive price, so we recommend visiting a businesses’ Oneflare profile to get to know the type of work they do and the experience of past customers.
