Quote comparisons

Having trouble comparing builders quotes? Don’t know if they have included what you have asked for? Or is the price different from what you thought? Our expert team can undertake a comprehensive report allowing you to quickly compare builders quotes and compare apples with apples.

Why compare builders quotes? This can be a tricky task – with every builder offering a different product with slightly different inclusions, prices and service.

Our team will investigate everything within your documentation allowing a peace of mind.

So how do you compare builders quotes?

Most people will simply look at the bottom line, if this is the case then you are off to usually a very bad start. Assuming that each Builder has covered the same scope, inclusions, exclusions, and will build using the same quality is not the way to go.

So where do you start? 

There are many questions to go through to compare your builders quotes.

How long have you been in the industry?

Looking into the longevity of the builder may help choosing the right candidate

What type of contract will be used?

With many contracts in the building and construction industry, the right type needs to be investigated.

What experience do you have in the work I am requesting?

If the builder has not undertaken your type of project before, make sure they completely understand the requirements.

What other projects will you be involved with while working on my house?

If a builder is stretched to the limit, your project may be left out for quality.

Do you have a list of recent clients that I can speak with?

References and past clients speak volumes.

What are the PS sums?

A provisional sum is an allowance included in a fixed price construction contract for an item of work that cannot be priced by the contractor at the time of entering the contract

Why using our services will save you money

Before obtaining builders quotes:

Our staff are experts in costing construction jobs. They can work with you, your designer, engineer and builder to give you an accurate estimate of what the job might cost.

Estimating Services Australia can undertake an estimate before you put the job out to tender. This gives you a benchmark to judge quotes against. You can give the builders who are tendering the quantities (Bill of materials) without giving them the estimated prices, so they have more information to use in putting together their estimate or quote.

Comparing builders quotes:

We will work through all your documentation, comparing inclusions, exclusions, specifications, builders reputation, pricing, contractual obligations and feasibility for you. The extensive report will outline the advantages and disadvantages of the quotations for you to make you own informed decision. Please note WE DO NOT have any affiliation with any builder.
