What is SafeQuote?
With the Home Improvement Council of WNY SafeQuote system you create an account ID and password to request a quote from anywhere, at anytime.
After you register you will be able to access our online Request a Quote form. We will notify our member contractors that a potential job is available. You specify the job and time frame and our member contractors will compete for your work. You can log in at any time after you submit the request to view the status.
When you use the no-cost, no-obligation estimate appointment system, you may receive up to 4 free quotes from our contractors and we have done the legwork to make sure they meet the Home Improvement Council Standards. It is at your discretion once the contact is made whether our member will discuss your project over the phone or if an onsite visit to review the job will be required.
Our members will be notified when you submit a request for quote that matches their expertise. Contractors will only be able to view the scope of the work that you submitted and the geographical area the work is to be done. Only contractors who can provide the services, for which you are requesting bids, will request your contact information be sent to them. Once 4 contractors have requested your information, your job will no longer be available to our contractors to view. You will receive an email notification each time one of our contractors selects to bid on your job. This email will include their contact information as well.
What you can be assured of is all our members operate by the HIC high code of honor and ethics, or in other words they are “a good contractor.” A good contractor will save you time, hassles, and money, making your project go smoothly. However, because your time is valuable, as is our contractors', Home Improvement Council of WNY does ask that only real jobs be submitted.
