Whilst we do have the name “QUICK” in our name, we are not THAT quick. We do not just automatically spit out a generic quote in order to generate cheap prospect leads. Each Solar quote has to be custom quoted by a real person, according to your location, roof type, building type, and usage specifications. We don’t have a one-size fit’s all quoting system because we know that it is important to review multiple factors that can only be done by a real person.
It’s “Quick” in the sense that you get to see all 3 quotes at one short meeting, instead of wasting your time meeting with 3 different sales people from 3 companies. You also only need to submit your details once. So it saves you time, which in effect makes it quick for you.
It is pretty standard for solar companies to require a $1000 deposit (for residential solar) before the order the products. The balance is usually due upon successful completion of the installation. These details will be confirmed with you when we present you with the 3 best solar quotes. There is no payment required from you, the customer, to Solar Quick Quotes. You only pay the solar company directly – the solar company who’s quote you accept and proceed with.
We use a number of local solar providers. Some of the solar providers have finance options available. If you are looking for a quote that has a finance option, please let us know via the quote request form.
Our service is 100% free to you, the purchaser.
We are paid the same flat referral fee by the solar providers, so our advice to you is honest and unbiased. You don’t pay us anything, you pay the solar company that you choose to proceed with, directly for their solar product. It’s similar to the way that mortgage brokers can get you the best finance option and the bank pays them a referral fee – it’s free for the consumer. The solar isn’t free, but the quotes and advice are.
You benefit as the customer, but so do local solar companies. They benefit because they now have a sure way to generate sales without the need to employ sales people who may or may not actually sell a product. They don’t need to pay retainers or provide company cars. It’s simple. They only pay a simple flat-rate fee on the quotes that are successfully converted to sales.
The two (2) main components of both residential and commercial solar are:
The performance of each of these is dependant on the other, so it is wise to use equal quality products for both. There are numerous brands with varying performance levels and warranties.
I’m pretty sure you know what solar panels are and what they do, so I’ll jump right to a basic explanation of an inverter.
An inverter is the piece of equipment that is usually mounted to your garage wall. It converts the solar electricity into usable electricity that your household devices can utilise and it also feeds unused electricity that your household doesn’t use, back into the grid.
Prices are always changing and sometimes there is a business that becomes desperate and reduces their pricing lower than everyone else. Experience has shown us that the really desperate and cheap prices are usually cheap for a reason. Do you want to risk purchasing from a desperate business that might not be there in 5 years time to honour the warranty? Do you want to save a little bit of money by installing outdated technology that isn’t as efficient as todays technology? For these reasons and the fact that we are sourcing quotes from independent solar retailers who we cannot enforce price guarantees upon, we do not offer a price guarantee. We will however, help to simplify the process for you so that you are best positioned to get the best of 3 competitive quotes from 3 reputable businesses.
This is a question that we get all the time. Up until recently, batteries were not something that we recommended as a financially viable solution for most people, but we are now just starting to see that change. There are some great solar + battery options available now, but it is still going to more than double the cost of a standard residential solar package. Some of the companies that we have in our system do have finance options available though, so solar batteries are not out of reach for everyone. In most cases, our residential clients choose to initially proceed with standard solar, with the outlook to have a solar battery installed at a later stage when the right pricing and rebates become available.
You will be able to choose which of the 3 quotes you proceed with, so you are choosing the company that you will be paying directly. Your agreement will be with the company you choose. You will not be paying Solar Quick Quotes any payment at all.
