       Day 3 :  Estimating

Not getting the promised ROI on your equipment investment?

 Too many push backs on your pricing? 

 I've seen poorly written estimates which SCREAM 3 potential problem situations:

1.  The estimate is written haphazardly to cause confusion and to inflate the price in a deliberate effort to rip-off the insurance carrier.  

 2.  The pack out company is so inefficient that using Time and Material pricing guarantees a slim profit margin but actually inflates the cost to the insurance carrier.     

3.  The company is clearly low-balling the estimate to win the job - but cuts corners and causes problems with the insured.  Ultimately they won't be in business long.    

Keep your estimates out of review & get timely payments!


Learn how to write clear, straight-forward, transparent 
contents estimates that build trust, credibility and
win more jobs!
