Quote - is a fixed agreement whereby you will provide goods and/or services to your customer at an agreed price. The only way to amend this price is for both parties to agree that there has been a change in scope for which you can claim a variation or have the option to requote all works.
Estimate - is used to provide an approximate cost to undertake the works. Perhaps the scope of work is not well defined or there are several unknown risks associated with the works that you are unable to consider at the time of pricing. Sometimes estimates are used to calculate preliminary costings for a project, with provisions available later to provide fixed pricing.
Budget cost - is the limit of spend that you have been allocated to undertake the works. This pricing situation often occurs when the client asks you to do the most amount of work you can without exhausting their budget.
