budget / estimation (presupuesto)

In finances "budget" is applied to the forecast calculation of expenses, etc.

I was wondering whether estimation or budget should be used in the following situation:

If you go to a store asking for a service (e.g. have your car repaired), you would like to know how much will it cost -in advance-.

So you ask the store for a 1) budget 2) estimation?
I dont know if I made myself understood...

    Gràcies Ampurdan :)

    I see...
    I agree with you, and that is what I thought at first,
    "but" the "problem" here is that in the excel worksheet that I was given with all the words (that the software uses), estimation/estimate does not appear.
    Then in the Functionality Requirements Document appears a whole chapter on budgets (presupuestos -anuales,etc-) and one section on "presupuestos" -in Spanish- which i'd translate as "estimations" .

    Gràcies una altra vegada.

    El año pasado hice un curso de inglés comercial y me dijeron que:
    Budget: Presupuesto: Cantidad de dinero que tienes para invertir en algo.


    Quotation: Presupuesto: Oferta detallada que te da un proveedor sobre el coste / precio de algo.
    (If you go to a store asking for a service (e.g. have your car repaired), you would like to know how much will it cost -in advance-).
    Espero que os sirva. Saludos,
