It’s all in the planning
Plan your new driveway project from the start, its vitally important that you choose a reputable company and they have knowledge of the industry. These kinds of companies are normally in high demand so contact them early, you can start by using our free no hassle new driveway estimation calculator here.
Make sure your quotation is in writing, we send a PDF of your estimate for you to check before we do a site survey and again provide this in writing for you. This is because verbal quotations don’t leave you with much in authority if anything was to go wrong in the future. Some people will under quote you; this is to be expected so always make sure the quote is on a like for like basis. Buildadrive.com is not always the cheapest option but this is because we always do the work with the very best of materials and install to the manufacture's specifications. We pride ourselves on the work we do.
Our prices are not high, in fact we are very competitive for the standard of exceptional work we provide. Don’t fall into the trap of choosing an installer purely based on the cost of the driveway.
Always obtain a detailed quote this is to minimise any misunderstandings once the driveway has begun to take place.
Consider everything within the driveway planning such as drainage, and make sure the company you choose are aware of everything.
Keep your guarantee safe and make sure you read it first, you need to protect yourself for what could happen in the future. A professional company will be able to provide this in writing for you.
Always make sure you are happy with the payment terms, never pay for the whole project upfront.
