Quotes, Estimates & Invoices
I will visit you, spend time discussing & assessing your needs and advise on costs / prepare a written quote / estimate (in most cases a written quote / estimate is provided before any work commences).
Quotes / Estimates are free * and always without any obligation whatsoever, however there may be a nominal charge for visits that are more than 5 miles from LU7 0JF. This would be agreed in advance AND totally refundable upon payment of invoice for the completed project or used as part of the deposit to secure the booking. Also, there may be a nominal charge for subsequent quote(s) when a previous quote was not accepted.
"Stewart was professional from the outset. He provided a very detailed quote fully outlining the scope and costs of the job."
Clear easy to understand Quotes / Invoices ~ details included that are so often missing, so you don't get any unwanted surprises. My Quotes / Estimates detail the work to be undertaken so there is a clear understanding of what is and what is not included, materials to be used, working hours, how much it will cost, etc.
My Invoices set out how much materials have been used and their cost, there are no hidden extras.
Material costs are estimated, with the aim to be under or as close to this figure as possible - with this in mind I have developed a system to easily keep on top of costs at all times and therefore the ability to keep my clients fully informed.
Invoices detail the breakdown between Labour & Material costs so you know how the total cost has been arrived at. Any part / stage payments and deposits, including dates, would be clearly shown.
I use Hippo Clean Spirit - Containing a high-tec combination of low VOC components, clean spirit is a revolutionary water based alternative to White Spirit that is highly effective and safer for you and the environment.
Clean Spirit is readily biodegradable, non-toxic, non-flammable and virtually odourless.
It's ideal for cleaning water and oil based paints, brushes and rollers. It also contains a conditioning agent to keep brushes soft, flexible and like new.
Clean & tidy ~ during and at the end of working day I will vacuum &/or tidy to ensure the least amount of disruption.
Safe working environment ~ my working practices always aim to dovetail with your needs and safety for all, including the storage of equipment and materials, will always be given a high priority. Particular attention will be given to this area should there be children or pets that could potentially come into contact with tools or materials. Should any tools or materials be stored at your home/premises overnight then the bulk of them would usually be kept in robust plastic storage boxes.
Self-sufficient on site ~ soap, towel, food & drink are supplied so you don't have to - your towels & teabags are safe!
Non-smoker ~ no smoke breaks to infringe on working day.
Protecting furniture/flooring ~ I have ample dust/poly sheets, masking paper/tape, to cover and protect everything in any size room, staircase or property and in some cases, where it's appropriate, I will use protective film for staircases, carpets or hard floors that give great protection, are easily removed and leave no residue.
