Frequently Asked Questions

What is QuoteSeek?

QuoteSeek is an online market place which allows people to post jobs that they would like done around their home or workplace (eg. gardening, computer repairs, home renovations etc). Businesses are then able to search for jobs in their location and quote for doing these jobs. Simply put, we help to get businesses in touch with customers and save everybody a lot of time...

Think of this as traditional advertising in reverse - The customer advertises their job, and businesses then contact the customer to provide quotes!

Do you get involved in any business dealings?

Our involvement stops once we have put a business in touch with a potential customer. Businesses and potential customers must negotiate the details of the job at hand directly with each other.

What precautions should people take when dealing with a business?

We do not provide any guarantees about businesses and wish to advise everyone to exercise due caution in any business dealings. At minimum, customers should check that the business has the appropriate licences and permits (eg. Australian Business Number, Plumber's License, Electrical Licence etc) and ensure that they are provided with proper written quotations and tax invoices where appropriate.

How do you protect people against disreputable businesses?

If we receive a number of genuine and serious complaints about a business we will consider suspending their account to prevent them from providing any more quotes through our service.
