About our services
How does ServiceMarket work?
After completing a short online form explaining what service you are looking for, you may select up to three companies from which you wish to receive quotes. You may also skip the quote process and book your service directly for select services. After submitting your request, we will send your information to the companies. Within 24 hours, you will receive quotes from your selected suppliers or a confirmation that your booking has been confirmed. It is that easy!
For some complex services such as moving and insurance, the ServiceMarket team will call you first to understand your request a bit better (such as the volume of your move, your budget, and your specific requirements). We then collect your personalized quotes from up to 5 companies, and send them to you.
Will ServiceMarket charge me for the quotes?
No. Our service is free to all our customers. Once you have received your personalized quotes, you have the freedom and flexibility to select a service provider that best suits your needs and purchase their services when you need it.
How many quotes should I expect?
You can expect to receive quotes from around 3-5 companies
How many days in advance should I contact ServiceMarket?
- For insurance requests, we recommend submitting your request 1-2 days before you need your policy to begin
- For household services such as painting, cleaning, and pest control, we recommend that you submit your request 3-5 days in advance
- Complex services have a longer lead time. We recommend 2-3 weeks for moving, storage, and car shipping requests to make sure your desired service provider is available on that date
