About Us

3-Quote is a web site designed to provide an effective user-friendly platform for prospective clients (the User) and companies (the Advertiser) to connect.

In the past I have been landed with the task of having to ‘find three quotes’ to cover specific situations but found the task almost impossible to complete. With that in mind, I performed a case study to ascertain the reasons why it is such a mission to obtain quotes from companies. In that quest I sent out 4 583 emails requesting a quote and received a response from only 20 of those companies.

After identifying the reasons for the non-response to companies to requests for quotes from prospective clients, I set about developing this advertising platform which I designed to prevent Advertisers who understand the necessity of responding to requests for quotes from getting ‘lost in the system’ and Users, who often quickly need to gather three quotes, to find each other.

Irrespective of the category within which you wish to seek a quote, there will only be a maximum of 5 (five) companies per category within a geographical area; although the number of sub-categories available is endless.
(A new category/sub-category is opened as the need arises.)

There are no fees attached to the transaction when a User browses this site or requests quotes. Irrespective of the number of quotes you need for your purpose, when you request quotes on this site, the system is designed to provide you with up to 5 quotes. You must then decide which of the quotes you receive you wish to use. Though you are free to browse the Advertiser profiles as you wish, the steps to follow to receive up to 5 quotes are as follows:

- Enter a category, sub-category and city/town into the search boxes provided;

- The User has the option to visit the company profile of the (up to) 5 companies currently registered on the system;

- Provide the specifications of the quote;

- Click on the ‘Search’ button.

After you have clicked on the search button, your quote specifications will be sent to the Advertisers under your chosen category currently on the system. Each Advertiser has 48 hours in which to respond to your request.

To assist the site administrator maintain the integrity of the aim and philosophy of
3-Quote, you are requested to report any Advertiser that fails to meet the ‘48 hour’ response requirement to the site administrator.
