    I read the "stop lowballing" document in Gatewayuser's sig and I swear somewhere in there it said when bidding a commercial account about getting a report cover from office supply store and what to put in there. But I have lost the info and can't find it in that document now. So here is what I plan on doing as I'm putting in my first bid of the year for a church.

    Get a simple report cover from Staples

    Pg1- Cover page with general info and company logo
    pg2- Why to choose our business
    Pg3- bid/Quote info
    pg4- 3 or 4 pictures of work performed
    pg5- My insurance information

    Is this the proper way to bid an account that could be in the $8k-10k a year range.

    I typed How to bid commercial in the search and all I got was a million topics on how people get commercial accounts but not exactly how they put it on paper.

    You got the right idea going. Pg 2 maybe hard to fill a whole page maybe put a pg 2 and pg 4 together to fill it up. No reason to have a a page not full especially on the topic of choosing your biz.
