   I'd thought the days of paying for estimates/qoutes from proffesional companies had by and large gone. If you wanted them to qoute for an overseas project then I'd understand a charge being made.

  I'd have said that in reality, any company who wants to charge for them being offered a chance to win some work is crazy. The golden age of bellfounding is long gone and I beleive that in the UK,the majority of bell work will be augmentations, rehangs, etc and not that many new installations.

   An installation of a "new" 10 is a major job so personally, I'd expect Whitechapel to qoute for free or not qoute at all. If they won't qoute for free for a job like that then they may not want or need the work.
