How do I use your site?
If you have never used the Ambient site before, you need to register with us and set up your account. You will then be able to make full use of the site.
How do I get a quotation for my project?
You can request bids from contractors for work by using our online Quotation Request form; it provides options to add your property details and even upload images. Your Quotation Request form is then allocated to one of the team at Ambient. We will then forward it to several preapproved contractors who will provide you with quotations or request further details.
Will Ambient need to visit me?
If further details are required, the team member at Ambient allocated to your project will get in touch with you, visit your property and collect further information i.e. images, measurements, floor plans, etc. This will then be fed through to the contractors who will then provide a fully detailed and accurate quotation. By working in this way, you do not have to put up with multicontractors visiting your property or calling you; we act as the project manager on your behalf.
How will I retrieve my quotes?
Your details and that of your property and project will be used by us to create a Client Portal area within the Ambient website. This will showcase your property to contractors and you will have full control, being able to request additional quotations as you wish.
What happens once I choose a quote?
Once you have made your choice of contractor, you can then arrange to meet with them prior to the start of work if this is your preference.
Will you charge me a fee to use the Ambient service?
No. Our service is included in the total cost; we work with our contractors to ensure our clients receive a competitively priced professional service with no hidden charges.
How do I know that your contractors are reliable and trustworthy?
We carry out detailed checks on every contractor, including looking at client testimonials, qualifications and completed projects. Don’t take the risk of using contractors who are unknown to you – Ambient contractors are fully curated and verified by us.
