what do u write on ? anybody got any samples ?
I made up a simple form. Its a template that I just fill in the blanks with an estimate with a pen.
I made up mine, heres a sample.
Spend some time designing one in excel. It needs to have everything that you need. Name, Address, Phone, Date....everything. Put your logo on it. Spend some time with it, your customers are going to look at it. If its too simple they are going to wonder if you are a real business. I print mine in triplicate. I would post mine, but I spent too much time designing it, to just give away.
Mines pretty simple also. I just use a piece of carbon paper between two of these. I give the cust. the oringal one and I keep the copy for my records.
Thanks for your reply but I think your form is hosted on a site that most are not authorized to view.
I just know I wasnt.
Maybe this works. I Know it's not much, but this estimate works for me.
The bottom saysrices are subject to change due to availability of material at the time of this estimate. Extra material & labor involved to complete job will be added on if needed. It's a little blurry because I scanned the image.
I just made one of mine up. If someone would like to scan it or put it in a zip file ill send it to you.
thanks guys for the input!
Is is my first and only estimate form. For $50 at Office Depot you can get 250 2-part carbonless copies made. I am still on the first 250. I will surely redesign it when it comes time. I don't get hardly anybody inquire about the packages.
