How Our Remote Quoting Works

December 20, 2019

Remote quoting can help you have your new fence or driveway installed much faster than traditional methods. Many customers have mentioned how hard it is to get a company to come out and give them an estimate for their project. That’s why we use technology to help you get a quote within a day after your virtual on-site visit. In this post, we’ll go over what remote quoting is and how our process works.

What is remote quoting?

Remote quoting is the process we use to give you a quote for your new fence or driveway project. By using a combination of satellite technology and video calls, we’re able to create a quote for your project much faster than other companies. Which means we’ll be able to schedule your installation shortly after you confirm the final quote. 

How does it work?

The first step to getting a quote is to have a remote on-site visit with one of our customer specialists. Instead of waiting for someone to come in person, you’ll have a video call with our customer specialist and they’ll get all the necessary information for your project. They’ll direct you to show a few different views of your fence and the surrounding area so they can get a better idea of what needs to be done, and if there are any special circumstances to keep in mind. 

Once the information is collected, our quoting team will write up the specifications and calculate the cost of your project. The quote will be sent to you by the next day, though typically on the same day as your call. 

Our quotes are fully itemized and outline the specifications of each part of the project and the materials so you know how much it costs and why. Once you’ve confirmed the quote we can get your project scheduled as soon as possible. 

We can also send out an on-site estimator in person if necessary, but many of our customers have enjoyed the flexibility and quick response time that comes with remote quoting. 

Why is remote quoting a good idea?

Some of our customers have commented on how it can take a few weeks to get a quote with other companies, and that’s one of the main reasons why they choose us instead. First, it’ll take time to schedule the initial on-site visit, sometimes even a few weeks. After that, you’ll need to wait even longer for the installation to be scheduled.

Remote quoting cuts down on the waiting time and you could have a quote within 48 hours after a request. This is a great choice for anyone who is looking to get their fence installed quickly, while following all necessary regulations.

Like Joshua B. who needed a new fence installed as soon as possible. Thanks to our remote quoting we were able to get his fence scheduled and installed in under two weeks. 

He was extremely satisfied with the final result and said, “So happy I went with Ergeon for my backyard fence! The quote by video chat was great and convenient.”
