There are two convenient options to create a new quote within Quote Center. Simply copy and paste a quote from a spreadsheet or turn one of your My Lists into a quote in just a few clicks. This will create a Draft of your quote that you can then Save as a Draft or Request Quote to send to your Ferguson sales associate to review.

Quote Actions

With Quotes, you can easily Order Now, order only selected items, or print your quote when needed.

To order all products on the quote, select Order now.

Note: Quotes in pending status have not been reviewed by an associate. These quotes can be ordered now. Please note, products and pricing will remain as shown during checkout.

To order select products from your quote:

Click the box to the left of the products you'd like to order from your quote. Once all the products you would like to order are selected, select the "Order Selected" button at the top of the product list.

Add Products to a Flipped Quote

You can edit a quote that has been flipped into an order by using the Continue Shopping function from the Review Order screen. Clicking Continue Shopping will put the items from your bid into your cart with the pricing that was quoted. Once a quote is in your cart, the selected job or store cannot be modified. If you already have items in your cart, a notification will appear. You can cancel and go back to the Review Order screen, select Save for Later or Keep in Cart to proceed.

Keep in Cart

By selecting Keep in Cart, the quoted items will be added to your cart along with the items already in your cart. The pricing for the items that are already in your cart will default to the selected job's pricing. Please note: The selected job or store cannot be modified once a quote has been added to your cart. The pricing for the quoted items will remain as what was quoted. Please note: If the quote is expired, the pricing for the quoted items will default to the selected job's pricing.

Save for Later

Selecting the Save for Later feature allows you to remove the items from your order but save them in your cart to purchase at a later time. The saved items will display below the quoted items in your cart. With the Saved for Later featured, you can choose to move the saved items to your cart at any time. You can copy the saved items to the My List of your choice. You can also select "delete" to remove an item from your saved items list if it is no longer needed.

Drafts

Drafts are another way to quickly price jobs and quote your customers without having to wait on a Ferguson associate to check a price.
