A fast, friendly, accurate estimating service

Up and down the UK, we’re the estimating service of choice of small building firms through to builders’ merchant chains. Maybe we’re popular because of our reliability. Or because we scrutinise plans, not just skim them. May be it’s the comprehensive Estimate Pack we provide, personalised with your logo and details. Time to find out for yourself?

What sets our estimating service apart


Getting it right matters. Each set of plans is pored over by one highly experienced estimator who sees the job through, asking questions along the way if required. And that takes time. But it’s worth it to have an accurate figure which protects your profit. And we’ll always quote the cost and the delivery date before you commit.


Our service represents excellent value based on the years of building expertise we offer and the quality of the estimating software we use (the best in the business). Your customers will be delighted with the professional quote, detail, accuracy, and correct spelling (!) It pays off, to up your win rate


Our estimators will read everything you provide and double check any details with you that aren’t clear from the architects notes. This quality and eye for detail is nigh on impossible from those 24-hour cheap services where all you’ll get are a list of assumptions or exclusions and the need for YOU to scrutinize the estimate…


We’re flexible when it comes to materials prices. We’re not tied to one single Builders Merchants. That would be limiting wouldn’t it? Our estimates are produced using HBXL Price Tracker+™ prices which track national averages – and you can specify your own prices for labour and materials if you prefer.


We come highly recommended. Our customer surveys make good reading. 97% of our customers would use the service again. Some us week in week out - some every few months. Courteous, friendly, efficient, first class… are just some of the blush-inducing comments we receive.


It’s ever so easy. Either call Ian or Joe on 0117 916 7894, upload your plans and elevations via the website, or send them over in an email. We’ll take a look, come back with a price for completing the work, along with a delivery date. Once we have your approval we’ll request payment and crack on with the project.

What our customers say.

Am I happy with the service?

Absolutely 100%. Ian my account manager, the estimators, first class. You couldn’t ask for more.

Sheldan Camden, Lunnon & Tilbury

When we heard about HBXL, we challenged the Estimating Service to run a quote for a very complex job.

They are clearly used to dealing with builders and know how to fit communications around our busy working lives!

The end result was both accurate and very in keeping with the image we’re looking to present – we’ve now taken delivery of the full suite of software.
