We are an auto transportation company and ship cars for individuals and companies within United States. We currently provide quotes to our customers on our website but also want to have a Shipping Price Estimator. This project involves creating this tool, which we imagine will be a separate page on our website but also want to have the possibility integrate it with our quote form. Our website is done on a WordPress format, hosted by 1&1 Internet Inc.
We want our customer to be able to select a date for shipment, origin state or zipcode, destination state or zipcode, and the size of vehicle being shipped, using these 4 criteria we would be able to give our customers an estimated price.
As far as obtaining the actual data for prices, we have a table (excel), listing a matrix of 50x50 states, and an average price to ship from one to another. For example our customer selects ORIGIN: OR , DESTINATION: AZ, based on the lookup value the price would be $575.
We have 3 different rate tables to corresponding to different seasons: spring, summer, winter. The appropriate table would be selected using the shipping date provided by the customer.
The vehicle size would be surcharge type of function added to the price looked up in the table, where a sedan would be +$0, SUV would +$75, Pick Up Truck would be an additional +$150.
We want to be able to update our data table and adjust the prices given to our costumers. It also important the price is provided instantly, preferable without reloading and remaining on the same page. (AJAX ?)
In your bid include the price setup and integrate the price estimating function with our current quote form (done with gravityforms plug in) and on a separate page.
Additional Feature for the separate page:
For the separate page we want our customer to be able to select individual states on a silhouette map of the United States, very similar to what is provided CNN for election coverage, see example [url removed, login to view] However, if possible avoid the use of flash.
We want to provide an interactive way for our customers to be able to obtain rates and we expect it to be a popular feature that is highly requested.
If you have additional question feel please let me know. We are looking for a quality and dependable product that we can be proud to show to our customers.
For added accuracy some of the bigger states like CA, TX, NY, PA, MI, FL will need to be split in 2, north and south, or east and west. This will likely require additional programming because we want people to use either the Map to select their state or a ZIP code. You will need to be able determine from the zip code which part of the state the user is selecting. For example 95757 is Northern California while 90004 is Southern California, subject to different rates.
The map itself has to look very clean and professorial to match our modern website, similar to what CNN has.
When it comes to forms we really would like to work with someone that is familiar with gravityforms plug-in for wordpress, due to their elegant form designs, but it isn't mandatory.
As far the selection of the vehicle, a use of simple but catchy graphics/icons would be ideal because some of our customers do not know what a sedan is but would recognize an illustration of it. Sedan, SUV, Pick-Up, Mini-Van,
We want this to be creative, intuitive and simple to use, this will be a highlight of our website and the most important way to acquire new customers.
