4. Will I receive endless phone
calls from firms?
No. Tradespeople who subscribe to Quote Partner sign an agreement to say that they will contact consumers in a professional manner only. So fear not, you will not be bombarded with calls and emails from Quote Partner registered companies
5. Why shouldn't I just look
through the phone book to find a tradesperson?
You can. However, booking a tradesperson from the phone book is sometimes based on ‘pot luck’ - whoever answers the phone first or whichever advert stands out the most usually wins more business. With Quote Partner we take all the unnecessary worry out of finding the right tradesperson for the job.

a bad job?
If any issues arise we will endeavor to help you, whether this means discussing your situation with the firm involved, contacting their trade association or helping you find a another trade professional to help put the work right.
7. If I use Quote Partner do I still need to vet the tradesperson
that contact me?
Yes. Even though we monitor all businesses registered on Quote Partner for complaints, we still recommend that every consumer requests to see a tradesperson's qualifications, trade membership certificates, at least two references and details of their liability insurance cover.
8. What else should I know?
We recommend that all quotes received by any tradesperson is written and signed by the contractor - this gives you, the customer, the peace of mind to know that the contractor will work to an agreed budget and time-frame. It also means that if unforeseen issues arise during the job the contractor will be obliged to revisit the original quote and mention any new costs before billing.
