About our quotes

Once you complete our short online form and share details and requirements, your information will be sent to vetted companies. At least three quotes from selected companies will be sent to you within 24 hours. You can then hire the most suitable company after comparing the quotes and reading customer reviews. You may also skip the quote process and book your service directly for select services.

For some complex services such as moving, 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.

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.

You will receive quotes from around 3 to 5 companies.

  • For household services such as painting, handyman, and pest control, we recommend that you submit your request 3-5 days in advance.
  • For complex services like moving, storage, and car shipping that have a longer lead time, we recommend that you submit your request 2-3 weeks in advance to make sure your desired service provider is available on that date.

About our company listings
