Quote Requests Without the Hassle

Submit a Quote. It’s Free!

Generally speaking, a quote request is posted when you know exactly what you need.
The ‘Cylex Quote Request’ platform matches your quote request to the most relevant companies
in your area and contacts them. The free service enables you to receive quotations from multiple companies, in a matter of days.
Not only is it free for you, but it’s also free for businesses, so you don’t have to worry about companies putting their prices up to cover their costs. Everybody wins!
If used the right way, the ‘Cylex Quote Request’ service can help you save hours of work, as you don’t have to contact the companies one by one.
But as always, you need to use it the right way.
The process is simple, all you need to do is to tell us what you need by filling a form and we’ll get you bids from local pros interested in the job.
You can compare your quotes side-by-side, see their prices, reviews and business profiles.
Once you’ve finished checking your offers proceed and hire your favourite one.
You can chat with the companies, schedule appointments, and once the job is completed, post a review about your experience. Writing helpful reviews that others can learn from is a great way to be an active part of our community, and help everyone have better shopping experiences.
If you’ve changed your mind, or you accepted a better offer from outside our platform, you can just close your quote request at any time. Give us a feedback on why you closed the request. Your feedback is highly appreciated and will help us to improve our services.

How do I submit a quote request?


First, you need to go to https://www.cylex-uk.co.uk/quoterequest/. From here, you can access the
quote request form and fill in the following details:

  • What products or services do you need? (i.e., Greek Translation) 
  • Where do you need it? (i.e., Bristol) 
  • What do you need? (i.e., Describe the Product/Service, add specifications) 
  • Deadline (add the last day you wish to receive offers) 
From our experience and from our clients’ feedback it’s better to add as many details as you can in order for the companies to give you the best and fastest offer.
You can add if you have the following information:
  • Quantity (i.e., 1 page ) 
  • The price range you are willing to pay and other order observations if necessary 
  • File attachments (i.e., the document which needs to be translated) 
Once filled in, just click on Submit.
Cylex will then submit your request for quotation to the selected companies.

Is it free to submit a quote request?


Yes, the ‘Cylex Quote Request’ service is free to use.

Do all companies listed on Cylex respond to quote requests?


No, it’s up to each company owner if they want to quote through the quote request service or not.
Some of them are already booked, some don’t have the product on the stock, others simply don’t use
e-mail for communication purposes, etc.

Can Cylex guarantee that I get high-quality products/services?


No, that is way too much to ask for. This goes beyond what a quotation service can realistically offer.
The ‘Cylex Quote Request’ service is a great matchmaker, but it’s up to you and the company to sort things out. For example, you must provide clear product specifications, otherwise, you will not get what you’ve asked for.

Now What?

Set Your Quote Requests Preferences and Win More Customers


Finding the right customers for your business is not always so easy. There's a lot to consider: from the location and the size of the job to the type of service or product, the customer is asking for. By setting preferences for the type of requests you want to receive, you can cut down on search time and focus your hard work on the jobs you most want to win.

It turns out that a seven-step approach works best for attracting new clients and keeping your existing ones, of course.


1. Know your business inside and out

Fully understanding your industry and having a firm knowledge of your product or service is important to be able to attract interested clients. The people who would be interested in your offerings can see how knowledgeable you are and will seek your assistance.

2. Focus on what you do best

When you set your preferences, put yourself in the customer’s shoes—ask what kinds of jobs you are the most qualified to do and only quote on jobs that fit within those service areas.

3. Make sure that your travel and location preferences make sense

These are really important for both you and the customer. If the customer is travelling to you, you should be close enough to make that trip worth their while.

If you’re coming to the customer, evaluate your travel costs against the job’s value so you can decide whether it’s a project worth quoting. And if you’re receiving too many requests for jobs that aren’t worth the transit cost, it might be time to adjust your preferences.

4. Opt-in for Email and Browser Notifications

These features are two of the easiest ways to engage with users and their quote requests.

  • Instant delivery – The notifications are delivered in real time to your email address and browser.
  • Increased Engagement – Push Notifications are delivered even when you are not on site. You can re-engage with the user on any browser or email provider.

5. Find your Quoting Mojo 

Really successful Pros find a way to assess jobs of different sizes (and price points) in a way that makes sense for their business. Don’t be intimidated if this doesn’t happen right away —reaching the right balance of big and small jobs can take time.

6. Don’t stop adjusting your preferences

The more you use Cylex, the more you’ll learn about your ideal customer. As this understanding develops, keep going back to the drawing board to update your preferences based on those learnings.

7. Follow Up - Customer Reviews Matter

After your efforts to bring in business, always remember to close the loop. So many leads and great conversations are wasted because you forget to follow up. Doing this simple step is sure to get your client base to grow.
Experience the power of customer reviews.
  • 73% of customers value the written review over the overall star rating (Fan and Fuel, 2016)
  • 68% of consumers look for either information on the reviewer’s experience, or problems the reviewer experienced when reading reviews (Fan and Fuel, 2016)
Throughout all of the statistics, one fact remains clear: customer reviews matter.
Regardless of if you already utilize reviews, or you're just getting started with a review strategy, you want recent reviews. (And as many of them as possible!)
