2Starting a Project

Go to My account in the main menu, then click on the “Get a Quote” tab.

Upload your architect plans or council documents, outlining what work and reports are needed.

Set the due dates that you need the reports well in advance of any deadlines. If you have not accepted a quote 4 days before your deadline, we will notify all of your consultants.

Enter the project’s location, suburb and postcode.

CheckVault – We recommend choosing CheckVault as it protects you from poor workmanship: your funds are held by CheckVault until you have confirmed that work has been completed satisfactorily.

Select the reports you require (the documents you received from the council will show you what reports are needed, or your architect should have informed you).

For every report you require you should select at least four consultants to quote. If your job is urgent, tick the ‘Urgent Select All’ box to get quotes from all consultants.

You can then create an account or log in.

Finally, tick that you have read and agree to Approve it HQ terms and conditions and submit your quote request.
