    I plan on submitting quite a few bids on commercial properties in my area this fall for next season and was wondering what all should I include with the bid such as references, brochure? Just want it to look professional and stand out. I have never placed bids on commercial so any help or ideas would be much appreciated.

    I just turned my first bid in last week for an estimate on a clean up. I described the services in detail, and explained what was covered. I used quickbooks online, and have my logo showing up on my estimates for a clean look. I explained that I would do a net30 billing, and the store manager thought the estimate was detailed and professional. We shall see how it goes.

    You need to submit proof of insurance.

    Use a professional looking bid/proposal with terms and prices. Also use a cover letter with a little information about your company and abilities.
