An initial consultation is free of charge, and usually takes place over the phone or in person (if you are in the Philadelphia area).
The next step is for us to provide an estimate. For an accurate, firm estimate, we need detailed information. Larger companies usually provide a document (often called a Request for Proposal or Brief) which asks for the details we need. Just use our contact form to send us your contact information and we'll give you a call.
Once we have this information in writing, we can often provide an estimate/proposal based on it at no additional charge.
Projects which are complex and/or not yet clearly defined may require our help in thinking through your requirements and developing a document detailing the specifications. We're glad to assist you with this work at our normal hourly rate. The resulting written plan allows us to prepare an accurate estimate for you, but is also a valuable document which you may use to obtain other estimates, if you choose to.
