View Full Version : Proposal template... check it out.

04-06-2001, 04:37 AM
Hey all,

I got tired of the proposal sheets from Staples and I wanted my company info on there without ruining the carbon. So I created this document based on the NEBS landscape proposal. Cut, copy, and paste for your needs then bring to a typesetter to make some carbonless forms and your set. May need a little bit of tweaking once you replace my logo with yours and change the fonts to one that matches your company. I created the document in a diferent font and changed it so you guys can view it. I will also be creating a Lawn Service estimate with checkboxes and price spaces for mowing, trimming, bagging, etc... I am also working on a website that will automatically fill these fields in and create a word document for you. It will work with my existing online customer database and I can create estimates, contracts, and invoices right from the web. This works so that my partners also have access to my database and we can print invoices and such right in the field. But thats a work in progress and I'll let you all demo that for me when the time comes.

Please let me know what you think of this proposal.


Thanks and enjoy!

Looks real good. I might make a few adjustments and use this myself if you don't mind. Good luck for the season.

Please remember I did not create the wording. All I did was copy the landscape proposal from Nebs.com added my logo and contact information to it. I did however create all the tables and hand typed everything in there. Glad to hear you are all enjoying it. Feel free to change it around or send me a pm if you cant get the formatting right when you add your own info.

Why do you give them three days to get out of the agreement?

04-09-2001, 06:17 PM
It's good business practice to allow a way out of a contract before services are performed. Besides what is lost by doing so? I personally dont buy any supplies I need for a specific job before I get a deposit or its 3 days prior anyway so I wont lose any money... just wont get the job.

In most states it is a law that you have to give residential customers a way out within three days, if they so choose. Caveat is that if they sign the proposal in your office this law does not apply. It was enacted to protect unsuspecting citizens from high pressure sales tactics (example: you need a new roof Mr. Customer and if you sign up now we'll do the job in 3 hours starting now so you don't get flooded tonight when it rains). This is usually enforced by the State Attorney General's Office (Bureau of Consumer Protection).

The law does not usually apply to commercial jobs.

In CT its the law. The law also dictates what typeface the notice must be printed in (it must also be bold, and in capital letters).

I just found this thread in a search but the link no longer works. Does anyone have this file?

(example: you need a new roof Mr. Customer and if you sign up now we'll do the job in 3 hours starting now so you don't get flooded tonight when it rains).

That makes no sense, how does that help someone who says
"yes" to the work AND has the work done that same day? They would still have to pay for the work agreed to, without a doubt.

I am brand new to this forum so please excuse me if I screw things up! I bought out a small lawn service and my son is going to run it.

Could you send me a copy of the proposal you were talking about? I went into that address on your initial post and couldn't get through.
