Consumers have a simple easy-to-use tool to take the hassle out of comparison shopping for products or services – Better Business Bureau Request-a-Quote!
The BBB Request-a-Quote program is a fast, free way for consumers who need an estimate on products or services to get in contact with ethical, BBB Accredited Businesses that can help. All a customer needs to do is log on to our website (cne.bbb.org) and click on the Request-a-Quote link to get started. Consumers can also access the Request-a-Quote program directly from a company's BBB Business Review.
The Request-a-Quote system allows customers to request a quote or information from all BBB Accredited businesses in a particular type of business directly through a form on the BBB website.
Consumers clicking on the homepage Request-a-Quote hyperlink will be taken to a page where they are prompted to click the drop-down menu to select the industry in which they need an estimate (ex: roofers, photographers, insurance). The consumer follows these steps:
- Choose a range of distance from their zip code.

Consumers can be rest assured that their information will only be used to get reputable BBB Accredited Businesses in touch with them.
The consumer's inquiry will be sent directly (via email) to BBB Accredited Businesses in the industries that are requested so that those Accredited Businesses may offer estimate quotes directly to the consumer. When a consumer selects your type of business and completes the form, you will receive an email with the subject line "Customer Lead from the Better Business Bureau" sent to the email address that BBB has on file for your business. This email will contain the information provided by the consumer, including how to contact him or her with the requested quote or information.
If you are currently a BBB Accredited Business it is important that you regularly check your BBB Business Review
to ensure that we have the correct contact information for your company currently on file. It is especially important that the BBB has the correct email address for your company on file, as consumer requests for electronic quotes will be sent directly to the email account that we have in our database. If you want to verify or change the email address we will send these consumer requests to, please contact the BBB Accreditation Department at 508-755-3340 ext. 116, or firstname.lastname@example.org
