Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
All agencies do two things in quoting:
1. Estimate the time to complete your project.
2. Calculate that time by their hourly rate.
That's how a project gets quoted to you. Ask them to tell you how much time they are estimating your project to take, and what rate they are charging you. That will reveal a lot.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It usually takes longer than you think, because it's often more complicated than it looks, although no one likes to tell you that.
