Five reasons to outsource your estimates for construction work

Outsource your estimates. Occasionally or all the time. They can be for extensions, renovations, loft conversions, garage builds and new builds. Why would you outsource? We’ve got five good reasons:

Time savings

When you outsource your estimating tasks to the HBXL Estimating Service, you free up time and energy to focus on your core business. Just imagine! You can devote more attention to the jobs that can only be dealt with by you. You can manage, plan and look after your crew and your customers.

Cost savings

Outsourcing can be a cost-effective way to get work done. Instead of hiring someone or spending your own valuable time (yes as owner of the business you are expensive!), you can pay someone else to do the work on a project-by-project basis. This can save you money in the long run and allow you to invest your resources more strategically. Our fee for producing your estimates can be incorporated into your customer quotes so you really have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Access to expertise

By outsourcing your estimating work to specialists, you gain access to their expertise and knowledge. The HBXL Estimators have been estimating for a long time. They have huge amounts of experience. They make sure nothing is missed off the quote – which in itself is so important. Not to mention the suggestions and observations they make a long the way, as and when necessary.


Outsourcing can provide greater flexibility in your work. You can scale up or down as needed, depending on your workload and business needs. No need to employ an Estimator. No need to interrupt the daily running of your business to do the work yourself. The HBXL Estimating Service is at the end of the phone or email as and when you need them. Every time. When there’s a tricky job. When you’ve got too much to do.

Reduced stress

When you outsource work to us, you can definitely reduce your stress levels by taking some of the pressure off yourself. There are few things in construction more stressful that getting a detailed quotation back to a customer. With the worry of estimating off your plate you stay focused and productive, while also allowing you to enjoy a better work-life balance. In other words a night in front of the TV instead of your laptop…
