When you need help with metal fabrication, it makes sense to try to get as many quotes as possible.

However, if you want to metal fabrication that's to a high standard, you need to find reliable aluminium suppliers for your Sunshine Coast projects, and you can do no better with a quality product from On The Spot Steel Fabrication.

Assessing Aluminium Suppliers

Not all cheap companies are good quality

In a perfect world, every quote that you get would be from a fabrication company that is able to do the work that you require to the necessary standard. In this world, however, businesses are not all created equal, and this means that some may be unqualified, or simply unable to deliver what they have promised.

Why companies put in low bids

There are several reasons why your quotes might all be low, but the main reason is simply that they will appeal more attractive to potential clients. Whatever happens, it is essential that you find out exactly why the bid has come in so low.

Lack of skills

Most often, low bidding companies will not have the necessary skills to understand what they are undertaking. Unlike On the Spot Steel Fabrication, these teams don't really know what you require, and this means that they are not likely to finish the job.

Lack of craftsmanship

A modern trend is for companies to undervalue the work that their teams do. This means that they tend to squeeze the most work out of their employees, often paying them less than is reasonable, and maybe also cutting back on skilled workers. This may mean that you get a low-cost job, but often you won't get the quality work you require.

Hidden costs

Another alarming reason why your quotes might be low is that your bidders are hoping to hide costs until the final bill. In addition, the costs for receiving poor quality work, or work which is delivered late, is likely to fall squarely on you.
