An “instant quote” is exactly what it sounds like. A customer can get an instant quote immediately through Quickparts’ QuickQuote® tool.
Instant quotes apply only to 3D printing projects. QuickQuotes go straight to a Project Manager (PM) after the customer accepts the quote, helping shorten the project’s timeline. The PM conducts an initial file review to check whether there’s anything that may need adjustment to help obtain the best quality print. After a secondary file review, customers receive a standard lead time for the manufacturing process they selected. The PM then sends the customer a confirmation with an expected ship date. This is typically a fast, smooth process.
However, instant quotes may not always be 100% accurate. The project may experience a delay and could have additional costs in certain circumstances, like determining the finish level or whether a material is on hold/ordered/in-house.
The QuickQuote system does have a few limitations, such as higher quantity orders or requests for first articles. If you need a greater quantity than the system currently allows or have any sort of special request, please reach out to a sales representative! They will help you obtain the most accurate quote possible and may even be able to help you get price breaks.
If you are familiar with 3D printing and know what you’re ordering, run it through the QuickQuote® system! But don’t hesitate to reach out to our sales team with questions.
