Ever wondered why building firms give their jobs to our Estimating Service?

You may or may not be surprised by the reasons…

“I just don’t have the time to do it myself”

It’s a vicious circle. You need to get the work in to do the work, and when you’re doing the work you haven’t got time to get the work in. Something has to give if you want permanently full order books and gainfully employed workers and ‘in demand’ subbies.

“I want my weekends back”

How many nights in front of the telly, or blockbusters at the cinema, football matches, pub get-togethers or holidays even… have you missed because the pile of requests for quotes has become unmanageable?

“I’d rather do anything else but estimating!”

Most builders get a buzz from actively working on a job or managing their projects. Not so many like spending hours looking up prices, fiddling with excel sheets, crunching numbers into a calculator and making each quote look presentable…

“I’ve been offered a residential project I’m not familiar with”

Whilst we’ve seen it all before (well just about every kind of domestic job), not all our customers have. So why turn away a job that isn’t typically what you do? We can produce the quote and all the supplementary reports, and you can build it!

“There’s too much money at stake to get this wrong”

We’ve worked on projects that are close on a million pounds in value. Lapses of concentration, forgotten materials, miscalculated hours…can easily add up if you’re not using 100% accurate software with the latest material prices. And of course we are…

And the most popular reason?

“Well…you do it better than me!”

Our fee for producing your estimates can be incorporated into your customer quotes so you really have nothing to lose and everything to gain by using the guys here.
