  • How is Reliable different from other development agencies?

    The big difference between Reliable and other development agencies is in our quality assurance process. Every project we code goes through 3 layers of intensive stress testing on modern browsers and devices before we send it to you. The result: we get things right the first time around.

  • Where are you located?

    We're a 100% remote team based all over the world with headquarters in Athens, GA. All of our work is done our in-house team (we never outsource to other companies).

  • Can you sign a non-disclosure agreement?

    We're happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement. We can also provide you one to sign if you don't already have one.

  • Do you offer white-label design and development?

    Yes, we can white label all of our design and development services, and we're happy to sign an NDA. Our dev server is also 100% white label (you'll never see any mention of Reliable) and we never share projects without your permission. In addition, we're happy to use an @yourdomain.com email when managing your account. Just create the email address and send us access.

  • Are your prices higher than other companies?

    It’s true we're a bit more expensive than some other companies (though we’re definitely not the most expensive option out there). That’s because our main focus is very high quality code and amazing customer care. In fact, we hear from clients all the time that they end up saving far more because of all of the time and hassles we help them avoid.

  • Do you offer design as well as code?

    We love helping with design as well as code! Send us a quick email to receive samples of our design work or a quote.

  • Do you offer e-commerce development?

    Yes! We offer WooCommerce (WordPress' e-commerce platform) and find it to be a fantastic, flexible option for most e-commerce businesses.

  • What are your payment terms?

    Reliable requires full payment before starting each phase of your project. For example, to begin HTML development the total possible cost for HTML development is due. After approving the HTML for WordPress, the total possible cost for WordPress development is due before WordPress development can begin. For more information, please see our terms and conditions.

What types of design files or programs do you accept?

We work with nearly all design programs such as Sketch, Figma, Invision, XD, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and more.

How should I prepare my design files and assets for you to quote?

It's best to send 1 folder that includes:

  • All of your layered design files
  • Separate JPGs of every page of your designs (or a prototype link)
  • All fonts used in your designs
  • A separate notes document that explains anything that may be difficult to interpret from flat files

Do I have to provide mobile and tablet designs for my project?

Nope! If you have something very specific in mind for the mobile and tablet versions of your project, feel free to send separate mobile and tablet designs over. Otherwise, we can take care of the mobile and tablet breakpoints at our discretion using just your desktop designs.

Yes! We love coding some awesome animations, effects, and transitions. Let us know what you have in mind when you reach out for a quote or email info@heyreliable.com for some samples of our animation work.

I have a JavaScript or CSS animation in mind for my project—how should I go about describing what I want?

If you have links to other websites using similar effects to what you have in mind, that can be very helpful for us to see. Otherwise, a detailed document with screenshots and liberal use of arrows works too.

Do I need to use any particular grid system or template for my designs?

It's not necessary to use any partcular grid system like Bootstrap for your project, but we're happy to use tools like Bootstrap on request.

Can you help me with accessibility compliance?

We love helping our clients make the internet a more accessible, inclusive place. Let us know you're interested in accessibility when you reach out for a quote or schedule a call with us to learn more.

Can you help me with an API integration?

We seriously love making some awesome stuff happen through APIs, especially when the API includes detailed documentation. Schedule a call with us to learn more about how we can help integrate an API on your project!

How quickly can you start on my project after I approve my proposal?

We can usually start new projects in 1-2 business days. However, if we're on a wait, it could be a bit longer. We'll be sure to let you know if that happens!

  • A subfolder that includes any images used in your designs
  • All fonts used in your designs. If you used Google fonts, we'll need links to any fonts used in your files. If you used Adobe fonts, we'll need your kit snippet. If you used another foundry, we'll need TTF and WOFF files

My design files aren't finished yet—can I get an approximate ballpark estimate?

Sure! Check out the ballpark estimate calculator on our pricing page or you can email us at info@heyreliable.com for a quick quote.

Can you offer an expedited or rush timeline on my project?

We offer rush timelines on a case-by-case basis. If you've got a tight timeline, the best thing to do is go ahead and send all of your final files to info@heyreliable.com and let us know your ideal delivery date. After reviewing your project, we'll let you know some options.

Will I have a dedicated project manager?

Yes, you'll have a friendly, dedicated project manager based in the U.S. and available to chat via phone, email, or Zoom.

How often will I hear from you with updates about my project?

Global Specs include items that apply to your entire project or multiple pages of your project, for example, the header or menu of your website.

Do you charge more than other PSD to code companies?

It's true that we're a bit more expensive than some other companies (although we’re definitely not the most expensive option out there). That’s because our main focus is very high quality code and amazing customer care. We don't cut corners. In fact, we actually hear from clients all the time that they end up saving far more because of all of the time and hassles we help them avoid.

I provided mobile and tablet designs for my project—why do you charge for those as well as responsive development?

Even if you provided mobile and tablet designs, we charge for responsive development as well in order to make sure your website is responsive on all screen sizes, even those you didn't provide designs for.

Why am I seeing HTML on my WordPress proposal?

The HTML is to match your designs perfectly, then integrate that into WordPress using Advanced Custom Fields so the site content can be easily updated.

However, if you'd prefer, we can instead work with a page builder plugin such as Elementor, which would cut out most of the HTML time. There are some limitations with plugins like this which means we can’t guarantee the end result will match your designs 100%. We can certainly get it as close as possible though!

Reach out to us if you'd like to see a second proposal using a page builder tool — info@heyreliable.com.

Does my retainer include help with any HTML or WordPress site even if you didn't code it originally?

Yes! We're happy to help with HTML or WordPress projects regardless of whether or not we coded it originally.

Do you offer hosting?

After managing websites for the last 10+ years, we designed our hosting plans to include everything we consider absolutely essential to your website health, continuity, uptime, security, site speed, and more. With a free site transfer and set up in 1 business day or less, you can sit back, relax, and rest easy knowing that your website is in the very capable hands of our expert development team. Email us to learn more and sign up.

How much can I save with retainers?

Retainers offer tremendous savings on HTML and WordPress coding as well as design. You can save as much as $25 per hour or 40%!

How will a retainer speed up my projects?

Having a retainer will allow you to send over your PSD or Sketch files and have us get started right away. Instead of going through the proposal process or taking valuable time to quote every task and get your approval, we can go ahead and get to work as soon as we receive your request.

Is there any long-term commitment?

You don't need to make a long-term commitment to sign up for a retainer! Just let us know if you'd like to cancel before your retainer renews and we'll make sure you don't get billed again.

On what services can I use my retainer?

You can use your retainer for HTML, WordPress or design services on any number of sites.

Will my retainer renew automatically?

If you sign up for an annual retainer, it will automatically renew one year from the date you originally signed up. If you sign up for a quarterly retainer, it will automatically renew every 3 months from the date you signed up.

What happens if I don't use my hours?

Make sure to use your hours before they expire! Hours don't roll over, but not to worry—you'll have either 3 months or an entire year to use your hours depending on which plan you sign up for.

Are retainers refundable?

Retainers are non-refundable.

What is the design to code process like at Reliable?

We'll start your design to WordPress project off by coding the HTML, CSS and JavaScript for your entire project. After thoroughly testing the HTML/CSS/JS on modern browsers and devices, we'll send you a link to review the project on our dev server.

You'll have 2 weeks to review and approve the HTML/CSS/JS, then we'll convert it into a fully custom WordPress theme.

After WordPress development, we'll run the project through our quality assurance process again before sending you a fresh link to review.

You'll have another 2 weeks to review your WordPres theme, then we can take care of the final migration to your live server on your behalf (up to 1 hour included with every project). From there, you'll have another 30-day code guarantee—if any bugs or issues pop up during this time that were part of the original project scope, we'll take care of them at no additional charge.

Do you build custom themes from scratch or use pre-existing themes?

Our standard practice is to build fully custom WordPress themes from scratch using Advanced Custom Fields and/or Elementor. We can use pre-existing themes like from Themeforest.net on request though.

Do you use a starter theme when building fully custom WordPress themes from scratch?

We use a super lightweight minimal framework we created ourselves.

What page builders do you work with?

We typically use Advanced Custom Fields but we're happy to work with other page builder tools like Elementor, WP Bakery (Visual Composer), Beaver Builder and Oxygen Builder on request.

I see a WP CMS charge on my proposal — what does that cover?

Will my WordPress dashboard be easy and intuitive to update and maintain?

Yes! Making text or image changes on your website will be as simple as updating your status on Facebook or posting a photo to Instagram.

What is Advanced Custom Fields?

Advanced Custom Fields is a lightweight WordPress plugin that makes your dashboard very easy and intuitive to update and maintain. We use a feature with ACF called flexible content. This splits your design up into content blocks that can then be used on any page of your website.

Can you develop a custom WordPress theme using Gutenberg?

We love Gutenberg and find it works best when paired with Advanced Custom Fields—check out this article to learn more.

Are there any plugins that you install on all or most WordPress builds?

Plugins can vary from project to project, and we always try to keep the number of plugins installed to an absolute minimum. Some we use often (although not on every project) include Advanced Custom Fields Pro, Elementor Pro, Contact Form 7, Forminator, Gravity Forms, Safe SVG, Fly Dynamic Image Resizer, Post Duplicator, and Yoast SEO.
