Too busy to quote? - Spending nights and weekends pricing? - Worried your profit is dropping? - Getting behind schedule?

The solution…

The new PGR Estimating Service brought to you by HBXL who have been producing quotations for the UK builder, developer and self-builder for over 10 years. They’re the best of the best when it comes to residential estimating solutions - and they’ve never missed a deadline - ever! This is what you can look forward to:
  • Estimates and quotations produced by professional estimators (all with a construction background)
  • A dedicated estimator for the duration of the job
  • An emphasis on getting the quote right rather than getting it out fast
  • So you can expect the odd phone call or email to discuss any queries
  • A detailed, accurate, business-winning quotation for your customer
  • Including all the materials, labour, plant, wear and tear and wastage. Plus we’ll include your overheads and profit margins - rates as confirmed by you
  • The option for a ‘start-date’ quotation so you don’t get caught out by inflationary price rises
  • A pack of valuable reports and schedules including the customer’s quotation, a Build Programme, and detailed breakdown of costs by phase and resource type, and material schedules
  • Delivery on the day it was promised

How it works

  • To quote you a fee for producing the estimate pack the estimating team needs as much info as possible - so a full set of drawings in pdf, bmp or jpeg format please
  • Simply follow the link here to the uploader and either select your files or drag and drop them onto the button - it’s that easy
  • Alternatively you can email the files to or your current PGR sales contact, or to your branch
  • The project’s feasibility will be checked and then you’ll receive the (no-obligation) fee details and estimate delivery date within one working day
  • On your approval, payment to the estimating team (HBXL) is next - credit, debit or by BACS transfer
  • You’ll then receive a form to complete so that the estimate is tailored to your personal requirements
  • Typically, from the time the estimator starts your project, it takes 3-4 working days for a smaller job, and 7-10 working days for a larger one
  • And then you’ll have your comprehensive estimate pack!
