QUOTES AND PRICING

 

  1. We will provide a quote before undertaking any work for a client, provided we have sufficient information about the scope of the work to be completed. This will be determined between you and us at preliminary discussions, either by phone or email.

 

  1. We provide this quote based on what we deem to be the necessary time available to the project, resources needed, and other factors we determine in-house.

 

  1. Once agreed on, and work is commenced, if we believe the final price will exceed the initial quote by more than 25%, we will contact you immediately. If you change the scope of the project after accepting our quote, the final price may also change.

 

  1. Our initial quote is just that; a quote, and likely to change +/- 20%. If you require a fixed quote and we have enough details on the scope of the work to provide one, we can do so.

 

  1. All quotes and proposals are valid for 10 days from submission date.

 

  1. We reserve the right to require payment of a deposit before commencing any work.

  1. If we have signed a separate confidentiality agreement or Non-Disclosure Agreement with you, that agreement takes precedence.

 

  1. We reserve the right to refer to your project and business name, and to use your logo, for our own promotional use unless we have signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement precluding this.

  1. If we are unable to continue/complete work because we have not received requested information from you, we will continue the work at our next opportunity. This may affect your preferred deadline.

 

  1. We will request you supply us with the contact details of one primary contact, to be available throughout our work on your project.

 

  1. If we receive no communication from you for 30 days, the project will be deemed closed and any final amount owing will be billed to you.
