Easy Job Quote helps homeowners save time and stress undertaking renovation projects, and supports contractors by providing appropriate jobs for them to bid on.

Home renovations made easy on the Peninsula

Homeowners, contractors save time and effort planning reno projects

When you’re looking to make improvements to your home, it can be daunting to think about where to start and who to call. Finding a trustworthy, qualified tradesperson can be time consuming and even lead you to delay your project.

And if you’re a contractor, you may be looking for ways to maximize your efficiency when it comes to assessing and quoting on potential jobs.

Having experienced professionals match a home improvement project with the right contractor can take stress and anxiety out of the situation for both sides, says Lisa Tinney with Victoria’s Easy Job Quote.

“We make it easier for the homeowner, so they don’t have to look up every contractor and do the due diligence themselves,” she says.

“For our member-contractors the benefits are two-fold. We save them the work of going out to assess individual jobs during the busy times, and when it’s quieter, we also bring more potential jobs to them.”

So, where do you start?

Not everyone has a background in construction or renovation work, which is where Easy Job Quote’s Project Developers can help. With a wealth of residential and commercial development experience, they take measurements, snap photos, talk about materials and discuss what you’re hoping to achieve for your home – all without the sales pressure that sometimes accompanies the planning.

“This is where you can have a safe, neutral conversation with someone who is experienced and is not there to try and sell you on the job,” Lisa says.

The Project Developer assembles a professional tender for the work, consults with the homeowner to finalize it, then makes it available to multiple previously vetted member-contractors who may provide a quote on the job. Then it’s up to you to select the bidder with whom you feel most comfortable.

Here’s more ways Easy Job Quote makes renovations easier:

  • When selecting your contractor, you can access customer reviews for companies that bid on your job
  • Contractors are all bidding on the exact same specifications for your job, making it an apples-to-apples scenario and streamlining your selection
  • When you select a member contractor to do the work, a full, legal contract of your job is created, clearly outlining all terms stated and agreed upon
  • As a member-contractor with Easy Job Quote, the jobs come to you and you can bid on detailed, professionally prepared projects from the comfort of your office or home

“We want to help educate people as well as support them,” Lisa says of their two-way system. “We want our process to help you feel very comfortable with your renovation, so you can sit back and enjoy your home.”
