When searching for a company to handle your metal fabrication project, cost is a major factor. You might be tempted to choose the lowest quote you find in order to save money. However, cheaper isn’t always better with these quotes. Unfortunately, you’ll often find that the lowest quote, especially a quote significantly lower than all other quotes, will cost you more in the long run. Here are some of the reasons you shouldn’t always choose the cheapest metal fabrication quote.
All too often, it can be quite tempting to send your initial parts drawings to a metal fabrication company for a quick estimate to get the ball rolling on your next project. Perhaps you are seeking to gain a general idea on what your project might cost or you are facing a deadline and need to get something for your customer to review.
It’s crucial to recognize that the accuracy of your fabrication project estimate is only as accurate as the drawings you provide. For an accurate estimate, it’s critical that you provide as much information as you can. This blog post will explore why it's important to provide a fabrication company with detailed parts drawings and specifications when seeking a quote for your fabrication project.
