How do I message a business or request a quote?

Message the Business and Request a Quote allows Yelp users to message business owners directly with questions about the business or its services – pricing, availability, offerings, or anything else you may need to ask. Depending on the category of the business and whether or not they have the feature enabled, you’ll see a button saying "Request a Quote", "Request a Consultation", "Message the Business" or similar. Click or tap there to get started. 

When requesting a quote from a business, you may be presented with additional questions about your project. This ensures the business receives all the details they need to provide you with a quick and accurate quote, and saves you from having to provide a long description of your project. These questions are available only for certain business categories. After providing details about your project, you may choose to send your request to additional businesses to receive competing quotes. 

Once you have sent a message to a business or a request for a quote, that message will be visible in your Inbox.

After requesting a quote, users may opt in or out of text notifications.
