This is a good example of the amount of detail we would expect from a commercial pathway quote:

We wish to obtain quotations for the installation of a new pathway. Below are the specification that will be required and you are asked to provide two quotes, one for a 2m wide path and one for a 1 ½ m wide path.

If you would like to visit the site to see the exact location of the proposed path, please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange a date and time. If you have any questions about the specification or the project in general, again please contact me to discuss this. It is best if you contact me by email.

The closing date for quotations is next month for the matter to be discussed by ourselves. I hope that you will be interested in quoting for this project and I look forward to hearing from you.
